God's just pissed that the pope is resigning what should have been his job until he died,

Wow, I bet that never happens

of course he is (if he existed, which he doesn't) because catholics are the only true christians

religious people are retarded, and should be systematically wiped out from this universe

My hobby is experimental theology, so I'm getting a kick out of this story.

In other news, the Vatican HR department is scrambling like fnck to figure out what the pension benefits for a retired Pope are supposed to be.

IT'S A SIGN FROM THE HEAVENS.

or it happens all the time.  Not sure.

Apparently when Pope Palpatine examined his conscience before god, he didn't do it closely enough.  Either that or the call to god when he was discussing his resignation got dropped.  It happens.

It could have been an errant bolt of Force Lightning coming from within the dome. Maybe Benedict is purging the Vatican of younglings.
 
2013-02-12 08:34:09 AM
So does he become a Bishop or Cardnial again?  He technically holds those offices and was properly anointed to them.

I really hope that isn't a euphemism.

Does anyone know what caused Luftwaffenhelfer Ratzinger to resign?  I think there must be something from his past about to surface.  I certainly did nazi this coming.

What an actual "Militant Atheist" may look like.  You know, somebody who founded an organization actually called the "League of Militant Atheists" with the explicit goal of eradicating religion from the world.  Somebody who used the powers of a totalitarian state to close churches and seminaries, imprison clergy, and use massive propaganda to demonize the very concept of religious faith.

Calling a snarky guy on the internet a "militant atheist" is like calling my grandmother with her FWD:FWD:FWD e-mails about Jesus a "militant Christian"

Every belief system has its militant members, atheism is included in that.  Atheists like to pretend they are somehow superior to theists, but they forget how much blood has been spilled in the name of atheist philosophies like communism.  That or they play the "no true Scotsman" card and claim that communism isn't really atheistic or that it doesn't count somehow despite atheism being a key tenet of communism.

Yeah, lightning never hits lightning rods at the top of the tallest building in town. And this isn't the Vatican PR department manipulating people's superstitions. Neither of those things ever happen. Ever.
 
2013-02-12 09:06:01 AM
I think the assumptions got it all wrong,

Right after the bolt of lightning, and clap of thunder you can barely hear... "Dammit, missed"
 
2013-02-12 09:06:08 AM
Seriously though, you don't leave a high profile job so suddenly and with bad timing unless you can see some shiat going down soon. We may not ever know why he's really leaving but I guarantee it isn't because things are going great.

Don't feed the trolls. The guy you responded to is about as likely to be an atheist as the pope. He's trying way, way too hard to be believable. Check his profile and you'll see what I mean.

If there is a g(G?)od I doubt she gives a shiat one way or the other.

Counterpoint (TFA):

"Thunderstorms are not unknown in winter, but they are more likely to hit the celestial city in spring or summer, which makes the lightning strike even more unusual."

Who cares? Until Jesus shows up leading his army of flying raptor riding angels is all just speculation one way or the other.

"Key tennant" huh?  So are you trolling or do you just not realize that whatever Fox news brodcast you got that from was BS?

Maybe God wasn't angry. Maybe that's his version of a high five because he isn't a fan of this current pope.
