(Telegraph)   In Egypt an old priest blindfolds a young altar boy and tells the boy to select a ball. After the boy has selected the ball, the old man gently grasps the ball and tells the congregation of the selection. That's how the new Pope is chosen   (telegraph.co.uk) divider line 63

I think the Vatican should select their next Pope via Bingo game.

How is the boy altered, Subby?

You can tell us. This is a safe thread.

Big deal. Priests have been doing that to altar boys for years.

"alter"
"tells the boy select a ball"
"the old man gently grasps the ball tells"
"congreation"

LAUGHTER OL what the trainwreck of the English language of the headline of this! Although from what has been heard by me I will say that this is quite in the line of what happens in the Roman Catholic Church also as I have heard that they do the freezing of the ball upon which they wish for the boy to do the selection of. This is the way in which the Jesuits have done this for many years.

"And the next Pope of the Coptic Church is... Patrick Ewing?!?!"

Let him gently grasp two balls, and let them hang well.

No wait that's the Catholics
 
2012-11-04 01:35:21 PM
That's not the first Priest's ball an alter boy has grasped.
 
2012-11-04 01:35:51 PM
Pope, altar boy, balls, hands.

That headline had scandal written all over it.

Objection- this is the plot of Kung Fu Panda.

This sounds better than the method the Roman Catholic chooses its pope.

Who knew Touchdown Jesus was a Coptic creation?

Roman officials penalized him for excessive celebration
 
2012-11-04 01:45:34 PM
lol they cleaned up the headline
 
2012-11-04 01:45:35 PM
"alter boy?"

They let a castrato select their pope?
 
2012-11-04 01:48:06 PM
That didn't look like "the will of god" so much as the bearded guy putting the ball he wanted in place and putting the boys hand over it.

Welcome to your Career Lottery Day!

Hmm... Messenger... Pope... Pipeworks....

/I got Pipeworks
//trade you for "Pope" 
///loved this movie, except for the absurdly rotten "Escape Adventure" sequence at the end
////not just give them a DOOR out through a tunnel, instead of a wildly complicated, perilous, irreversible aquatic roller coaster??
//and how did they start deep underground, go through apparently miles of steep downhill flume ride, go up a moderate staircase and somehow end up at the top of a hill far, far ABOVE Ember?  Which apparently doesn't have all that much solid rock capping it, because they could see down into it?

Well, at least it wasn't a UFIA and chosen by which knuckle he buried it into.
 
2012-11-04 02:34:03 PM
The kid with the blindfold on has to wear it for the rest of his life while he rides "master-blasted" onto the new Pope's back.

It sounds like so much of the priesthood relies on little boys playing with adult balls.
