No, not http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/john_paul_ii/ that pope, the http://www.reuters.com/newsArticle.jhtml?type=oddlyEnoughNews&storyID=7986072 other pope!
Ok, he was part of a “secretive sect”, so I guess we can all be forgiven for not having a clue who he was. It was rather amusing to note that, like so many prominent muslim clerics, this joker was blind; not to mention blindly followed by his devoted congregation.
