Did Edwin Tong negotiate an “exclusive” appearance deal with the Pope as well? You know, like what he did with Taylor Swift …

The “Pope” coming to visit Sin City.

Hopefully the angels don’t descend and demons from Hell don’t ascend and battle it out the moment he arrives.

If that does happen, I hope the Pope decides to give us a 24 hour warning so that us normal people can leave first.

Yes, the pope of islam is coming.

He will have the honour to recite the shahada that no other popes had to replace his own apostles creed.

The security costs & accomodation itself will be massive…all at who’s expense?
Im catholic but i hope he doesnt visit…what good will it do?
Idol worship at the most..

Looks quite clearly to anyone casting ballots this GE the PAP Administration’s course and causes of its actions.

By inviting the Pope, is the PAP Administration hoping to wash it’s sins, it’s crimes against SGpns, and hopefully – “lo and behold, SGpns please vote for me, I m baptised. I m borned again”.
