mittromneysdog: PhiloeBedoe: Don't forget the upside-down cross on the back of that throne...

That's because St. Peter was crucified upside down.


I though it was cause the pope is a huge sabbath fan

Gyrfalcon: Ah, I love religion threads on Fark. Like watching a couple toddlers fighting over which of their favorite cartoons is real: "No, Scooby-Doo is really alive!" "Nuh-uh, My Little Pony, you poopy-head!" No, neither of your cartoon images of reality is true, it's a lot more complicated than you want to imagine, and you all sound like a bunch of idiots with your silly accusations, and most of you should know it.

Whereas toddlers are not usually in a position to put forth this level of argument, nor decide it is worth while to do so, I think this thread is about whether or not the Pope is rich and simultaneously denounces those who seek extravagant materialistic gains. I am sure the papal life is grand confined luxury and all, but I would not care to trade positions. There's too much self-flagellation at dusk and church time for me to stomach.


I'd agree, except the "nuh-uh! catholics are child molesters!" "No, Muslims are terrorists!" arguments tend to undermine your statement.

KrispyKritter: gopher321: Aaaand here's the annual New Years Catholic Church Is Evil bashing thread. Right on time.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

There was a time when people respected other peoples right to freedom of religion. I've not been on Fark that long so I don't know if it ever existed here.

The Roman Catholic Church's wealth did not come from unregulated capitalism, which is what the Pope talked about in his speech.


It came from unbridled feudalistic kleptocracy. Is that better?

halfof33: Monkeyhouse Zendo: KrispyKritter: There was a time when people respected other peoples right to freedom of religion. I've not been on Fark that long so I don't know if it ever existed here.

I absolutely respect your right to freedom of religion. That doesn't mean I can't ridicule you for your choice in imaginary friends and it certainly doesn't mean I can't criticize the followers of your imaginary friend.

That is exactly the same reasoning used by the KKK! Good for you.


Of course everyone knows the KKK only ridiculed people. Good thing it never went any farther than hurt feelings.

lewismarktwo: The problem isn't that the wealthy are wealthy, it's that they actively seek to keep the poor poor. Because, unless there are people who are poor, then no one is 'wealthy'.



Just think, if you had been a professor at Stanford in 1983 you too could have gotten famous for writing a journal article with exactly that point.

For an enlightened people who claims that they do not judge prematurely, there seems to me that many of you believe that catholics = child molesters. Sorry to burst your bubble, but thats like saying Muslims=terrorists

Sorry, I can't seem to find the Catholic Church's right to immunity from criticism anywhere in my copy of the Constitution. Can you help me out?


It's under "entitled majorities". Same section as "fark the poor" and "chicks can't hold there smoke".
