    Pope sues magazine over photo with controversial stain

    Pope Benedict XVI has resorted to court action after apparently being offended by a German satirical magazine.

    The July edition of Titanic published a photograph of the Pope with stains covering his cassock below the waist on the front and back covers. On the front cover the stain is yellow, and on the back it is brown.

    The pictures were published under the headline "Hallelujah in the Vatican: The leak has been found!" referring to a recent scandal over correspondence to the Pope and his close associates being leaked to the media, the German N24 channel said.

    The edition’s impudence infuriated some Catholics including clerics in the Vatican.

    Archbishop Angelo Becciu acting on behalf of the Pope of Rome has already contacted a law firm in Germany, Matthias Kopp, spokesperson for the German Bishops' Conference told Spiegel Online. He also added “Titanic oversteps every measure of decency."

    The magazine’s editor-in-chief Leo Fischer denies the edition has violated the Pope’s personal rights and says the picture is offensive only in people’s minds, as it shows that the Pope has spilled a drink. "Everyone knows that the Pope is a big fan of Fanta," Spiegel Online quotes Fisher as saying.

    A court in Hamburg has already issued temporary sanctions against Titanic until the case is ruled. The magazine has to suspend further distribution of the July issue featuring the Pope’s picture. They are also banned from publishing the image online. Issues already in circulation don’t have to be called off.

    The court’s decision dissatisfied Titanic’s editor-in-chief and he is prepared to fight a long battle.

    You would think so, since that's what he preaches.

    Maybe the marks are a representation of what some young boys do when certain Priests tell them to 'wait behind'.

    The pope is a person that sits all day and soils himself, he only gets up to wave the smell away towards his subjects

    He is one man that contols 1.3 billion people and one or a few stray from the flock to have a poke at their master. Does he not know fun at the work place is a human condition and a sense of humor is a great thing for your leader to have
