Here I stand!

Today in Washington D.C. a mass was led by Pope Benedict XVI during his first visit to the U.S. The pope arrived in his pope-mobile to the cheer of some 48,000 people. As I watched the footage from the mass I began to think of the scene from the Luther movie where Martin is standing before the general assembly at the Diet of Worms in Germany where he was on trial for his writings against the practices & teaching of the Pope & the Roman Catholic church. If you want to get an idea of what the Catholic church is really about check out the movie "Luther". To give you a little taste check out this video of the scene where Martin is at the Diet of Worms.
