Punk papal devotees
As the abuses of WYDs, instead of being punished, are stimulated by the complacent smiles of the religious authorities, punk hairstyles, make-up and fashions are increasingly seen at public gatherings with Benedict XVI. The closeups on this page, for example, show the punk presence at papal events during Benedict's visit to England.
Above, two shots of youth outside Westminster Cathedral while the Pope was saying a Mass. Below, other photos taken on that occasion or at the Mass of beatification of Cardinal Newman at Cofton Park, Birmingham.
