Holy shiat!  They finally went after an infallible, revered leader of an all-controlling religion for decades of covering up child rape?  They'll get me next, I better resign.

The pope said Monday he is resigning "because of advanced age."That's right. We are living in a too advanced age for the pope.

Guilt?

If I could believe that in any small way I contributed to his resignation, I'd buy myself a steak tonight and eat it without salt because I'd be all the awesomesauce that steak could handle.

He'll be the Mahdl-T, the savior who'll drive us to paradise. He'll also be the Dukelet, Pall Agamemnides, son of Duke Lotto of House Pancakes, who is known as Assol, Pall Mauve-bib, the Kumkwat Haagendasz.

I hope they pick an old white guy to be the next pope.  That's what the world could use.

Bonus if he's an old Italian white guy.

All I got out of that was pancakes. If they start serving pancakes during mass, I might go back.

You don't vote for Popes!

How do you know?  immrlizard could be a Cardinal.


Listen, strange Cardinals gatherin' in a room distributin' scepters is no basis for a system of religion. Supreme pontifical power derives from a mandate from the heavens

I'm surprised at media focus on his physical health without considering he might have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's or similar. There's really no reason to resign due to physical health. I don't believe for one minute that he suddenly feels humbled or guilty for protecting the church or child rapists for 40 years.

Cheney would repent for Iraq, first.

He's a-just too pooped to Pope, the man is 86 is this really so strange?

ThurmanMerman: He's saying he's resigning because he's spiritually not strong enough to lead.  Which really does make one wonder what's coming down the pike that we don't know about yet.

He's resigning because it has become too hard to sneak little boys into the Vatican. The convent he'll be living him will give hime more cover.

Sir Not Sure The Unscannable: Have some respect, people. Wouldn't you want to resign when you feel like you can't work anymore?


Ha!  Yeah, watch me get all respectful to this old pederast.

How the hell can you be too old for a job where your entire actual duties consist of sitting and waving?

It's not like he even has to say mass anymore.  He just throws happy blessing waves at the people who are actually doing all of the work and sometimes gets wheeled out to wheeze some hollow pre-written statements in Latin.

Some shiat is going to hit the fan soon, for sure.

What if you had to wear all those robes and big pointy hats all day, you would probably at some point say, I've had enough.  I am going to the monastery next door with a nice Chianti

I thought that the whole "health issues" thing was weird since they paraded the last pope around asleep and drooling on himself in his later days.
