POPE BENEDICT XVI has criticised his late predecessor POPE JOHN PAUL II's decision to share the stage with American rocker BOB DYLAN. The current pontiff, who took over as head of the Roman Catholic Church following John Paul II's death in 2005, believes rock music is the work of Satan and cancelled the annual Christmas pop concert at The Vatican last year (06). Benedict XVI was one of John Paul II's closest aides during his time as Pope and was concerned when John Paul II appeared on the same platform as Dylan during a 1997 concert in Bologna, Italy. Dylan sang KNOCKIN' ON HEAVEN'S DOOR, A HARD RAIN'S A-GONNA FALL and FOREVER YOUNG at the concert. In Benedict XVI's new book JOHN PAUL II, MY BELOVED PREDECESSOR, the current Pope writes, "There was a reason to be skeptical and I was. "Indeed in a certain sense I still am today. I have doubts to this day whether it was right to let this kind of so-called prophet take the stage (in front of John Paul II)."

These feelings by our Pope deeply sadden me. Bob Dylan is like a prophet and has made us use our brains to think about many injustices in this world. Does it really matter what religion you practice. I honestly do not believe atheists exist at our darkest hours no matter what the cause for some reason we alwys ask for Gods' help. I believe in God and I believe Bob Dylan is someone special God created in His image. My only son is facing the death penalty and with Gods help and a newly found Bob Dylan (for me) I am trying to cope with this horrific situation.Please Pope Benedict take another look at one who has been right on the money about war and peace and love and prejudice.I say God Bless Bob Dylan and God bless us all. Thanx
