rufus-t-firefly: rufus-t-firefly: I feel obliged to point out that McCain was actually quite tactful, since he wasn't talking to his wife.In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain's hair and said, "You're getting a little thin up there." McCain's face reddened, and he responded, "At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you c--t."http://rawstory.com/news/2008/McCain_temper_boiled_over_in_92_0407.h tm lWRONG GODDAMN THREAD./sorry
Rev. Skarekroe: There were two things I loved about The Godfather III - the papal subplot, because I think that's an interesting part of recent history, and the fact that Connie turned out to be the most vicious member of the Corleone family.
swahnhennessy: This guy was elected pope and accepted by Catholics despite everyone knowing the role he played in covering up the Church's sex scandals. Whatever got him to resign has to be huge. Like, he was diddling altar boys in line at the Vatican Bank to cash forged checks from the Mafia while making prank phone calls to the widows of 9/11.
j0e_average: Taking religion seriously = psychosisTeaching religion to children = child abuse.
stevetherobot: I thought it was pretty well known that the Vatican is run by gay priests.
ISO15693: j0e_average: Taking religion seriously = psychosisTeaching religion to children = child abuse.Millions of happy, well adjusted Mormons disagree with you.Celibacy was never intended to be part of the priesthood. That is one of the major screw-ups of 4th century Latin Rite Catholicism. The priesthood was intended to be part of every family.
The_Fuzz: I like that he has a pacemaker. God designed him a bit faulty, and instead of following God's will and perhaps dying naturally, he gives him the finger and gets a mechanical device to keep him alive. The hypocrisy in the church is endless.
thornhill: Eh, I think the most likely explanation is that he wants to be able to have some influence over his successors so he can insure that his policies will live on for many more years. Even Popes think about how to best preserve their legacy.
shortymac: You're can't tell people to not have sex AND not masturbate and have them come out normal.
trippdogg: I must have missed something - when did a well reported money laundering scandal and gross financial mismanagement suddenly become a conspiracy theory?He's being asked to step aside because the $29M the Sicilian Mafia gave him to fluff and fold has gone missing.
stevetherobot: Therion: So priests being gay with each other is considered worse than priests buggering altar boys?Nice Church you have there, be a shame if something were to happen to it.I suspect that they look on pedophilia as a mental sickness, while gayness is just a straight up sin.
ruta: I'm confused. If there's a big secret gay faction controlling the church at the highest level, then why is the church so anti-gay?
DS1970: Never mention that movie again. Sophia should have been aborted.
eyeq360: They said that Pope John Paul I was killed off due to him proposing radical changes to the Vatican, as in selling off the assets the Vatican owned. A group called P2 poisoned him, then killed off Roberto Calvi by faking his suicide.
Slaves2Darkness: So, the Pope is Gay.
oakleym82: CSB?I was raised Catholic, I was an altar boy, and I was really into my Catholicism. I also worked at my church a few nights per week while in HS stuffing bulletins, answering phones, and doing other secretarial stuff. I lost the faith my senior year*, and only occasionally feel the tinge of Catholic guilt.Our pastor was gay, into gay porn, and into trading gay porn. It all came out when the diocese held some sort of internal investigation. Visting priests would come around and swap gay porn. I don't know what else they did.Anyway the whole point of this is that when all this came out, I guess what was discovered (or at least speculated), was that the church actively recruited gay men into the clergy, because the celibacy that came with the cloth would prevent them from the abomination of homosexual acts. I suppose this is all speculation but it makes sense to me. The gay porn priest at my parish was in the Marine Core during Vietnam, and came back utterly confused./CSB/no, he never touched me. nice enough guy, but kind of an asshole to the "teen workers" when we didn't do some menial secretarial shiat right.//once I was alter-serving for confirmation and the Bishop told me I had the calling. Scary.*I lost the faith completely and instantaneously. It was the Sunday morning after the Saturday night that I lost my virginity. I was sitting on the alter looking out into the congregation during the Homily as the (above) priest was going on about the abhorrence of abortion, euthanasia, the death penalty, and... contraception. Having just committed the ultimate sin the night before, I was feeling pretty shiatty until I looked out into the congregation to observe everyone nodding in agreement with him and noticed each family had one, or maybe two children. Never stopped having sex since. Sex is awesome.
mafiageek1980: Aside from Sophia Coppola's bad acting, I actually enjoyed most of "Godfather part 3"I think the critics focused too much on her acting (or lack there of) and the fact that it wasnt "Godfather part 2".So yeah, there is too much hate for "Godfather 3". Just sayin!
thornhill: Rev. Skarekroe:There were two things I loved about The Godfather III - the papal subplot, because I think that's an interesting part of recent history, and the fact that Connie turned out to be the most vicious member of the Corleone family.I thought that was one of the worst parts -- a total 180 from what her character was in GF1 and GF2.

buster_v: Godfather 3 came out 23 years ago.

Gregory VII mandated clerical celibacy in the eleventh century as part of a Church land and holdings grab.
