German files case against Pope at UN International Court

An artist in Germany has launched a suit against Pope John Paul II for his stand against using condoms.

Ananova reports that Karl-Friedrich Lentze has filed a case at the International Court in The Hague.

Lentze, argues that the Pope "should be made responsible for the deaths of countless people" since, according to Lentze, the Pope's stand against condoms shows "significant contempt and arrogance towards human life".

Lentz noted that he is seeking a symbolic conviction and added: "Of course, he should be spared from having the likes of Milosevic in neighbouring cells."
