And keep the tag on the hat, yo

However the Vatican newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, has denied that the bright red shoes the Pope sometimes wears are made by Prada. "Such rumours are inconsistent with the simple and sombre man who, on the day of his election to the papacy, showed to the faithful gathered in St. Peter's Square and to the whole world the sleeves of a modest black sweater" the paper said.


HAHAHAHAHAHA

No kidding, it was probably the last time he wore that ratty thing. Apparently unless it has no less than 5lbs of gold sewn into the fabric, the Pope ain't sportin' it.

Oh yeah, and if you take the hologram sticker off the hat, you get immediately excommunicated. Gotta keep it real for God.

The lies and crazy shiat they say is so obviously the opposite of reality; I can't even imagine how brainwashed you would have to be to believe a single word they say.

Sitting on a golden throne in gold/velvet custom made vestments under a gold dome = humble.

HOW DARE YOU SAY HE WEARS PRADA SHOES THAT IS CRAZY!!!

"The Pope...has announced a special "year of the priest" beginning on June 19."

I thought the year of the priest was young boys. Oh, sorry...that's the yearn of the priest.

Pope or George Bush Jr.?

- Condoms will not stop AIDS.
- Excommunicate a 9 year-old because she got an abortion.
- Lead buy example, wear smarter cloths.

All he needs to do now is choke on a pretzel!

right back to my theory that all religions are a conspiracy started by Big Hat.

The big hat conglomerates are leading you sheeple with all of these different religions that all have multiple hats for multiple purposes.

Wake up.

2009-03-19 02:54:41 PM  
I've always preferred the cassock and the tri-cornered hat look to the black pants, black top and collar look that seems to be the norm today. The pants, top look seems less Catholic and more Protestant.

Plus, it looks way more comfy.

Jesus would weep to see the head of his church sitting in a palace on a golden throne wearing an erimine trimmed cape and prada shoes.

Unless you can fit a camel through the eye of a needle, you can't be both rich and catholic.

That's what loopholes are for.
Take a vow of poverty, tell everyone that all of that neat stuff belongs to the church and you, personally, have no possessions, and voila! you've pulled the wool right over the Big Guy's eyes.

the fact that this institution exists and has power is one of the reasons i am sometimes overwhelmed by disgust that i am human and share virtually the same genetic make up, and thus, share the same frailties. i am stuck here with these people i despise and stuck with the truth that i am no better than them.

These are grown men, wearing gaudy costumes, I know people are used to it, because it's always been that way. But think about that, grown men playing dress up. It's kinda ridiculous.

Seriously if the next pope wants to make a big splash, he ought to just wear the plain priestly black with the white collar and ditch all the finery.

I mean, what is Catholicism supposed to be about, anyways? Real estate?

Considering the Catholic church's stance on homosexuals... this just seems like the orders of a flamboyant gay man. "Hey there Father Scruffy, get out there and strut! If you're gonna fight Satan you might as well look FABULOUS!" He just strikes me as gay. For farks sake, acknowledge it and move on. It would be the greatest thing to have an openly gay pope.
