The Pontification for the Nation TourAnd here are some of the best suggestions we received (Twitter user in brackets):
The Highway to Heaven Tour
The Faith, Pope and Charity Tour
The Papal Bull in a China Shop Tour
The Communion for the Union Tour
The Ratzo Roadshow (@Heresy_Corner)On top of the tour name game, both @paulwooding1973 and @thesophie raised the issue of what would be on the Pope's tour rider (2 x Holy Water, 12 wafers, amulet of wine, 3 incense sticks and a sceptre, said Wooding), while we had numerous suggestions for support acts (Black Sabbath, Lost Prophets, The Shamen...).

Plus, it was suggested that October 2010 might be a good time for a second wave of the Atheist Bus Campaign – perhaps even an Atheist Pope Mobile Campaign. @atheistcrow kindly mocked up an appropriate photo.
And finally, not everyone was getting excited about Pope Tour 2010. Here's what @ACrispix had to say:
"Not attending the #PopeTour as can't handle papal fanboys saying they were there in '82 and it was so much better."We'll leave it at that for now. Let's just say we can't wait until next year. If you have any more suggestions, leave them as comments on this post. You can never have too many Pope gags.
