Ironbar -

Yeah, I stole the idea from that.

One of my uncles or something gave me the Marvel "Pope origin" comic - inspiring stuff, and it did have Spidey on the cover, but I was more excited by the potential crossovers to other Marvels.

Pope and Silver Surfer against Mephisto

Pope and Dr Strange against Dread Dormammu

Alas, my childhod dreams were shattered, and those ideas came ne'er to pass.

Of course, there is no place on the whole Vatican site to give them feedback. I guess they really have not changed after all.

No, I'll be the Internet Saint! I perform miracles daily... like... making Windows not crash so much... and... refusal to go to porn sites! hehe

....there's talk he is searching for a patron saint for Internet users.

Might I suggest Saint Onan. ; )

But what we all want to know is... what does Bevets make of all this?

Doesn't bother me.

Heaven doesn't want me, and Hell's afraid I'm gonna take over.

I wish he'd said he thought it was evil. Woulda freed us from all the Catholic fundies. Not that all Catholic fundies are bad. Just the annoying ones.

Yes, but can I now buy my Indulgences over a secure connection?

I shall have to have a talk with 'ol JP.... I never gave my permission for him to bless the internet... First off, I warned him his next public blessing would have to be Cathrine Zeta Jones' breasts.... I also warned him he needed to publicly execute all child molesting priests.... This is going to be another black mark on his record, one more and I'm afraid I'm going to have to send him straight to hell with the Dell guy...

I'd cheer his death when it comes, but I know they'll just appoint another one.

Bah, he's going straight to join L Ron Hubbard anyway.
