The last pope that retired before dying was hunted down, imprisoned, and died a few months later.

I was hoping he would jab a few cardinals in the cock with that shepherds hook on the way out the door.

May this create a schism in the church that tears the entire thing apart.

Not as edgy or controvercial as I would have liked. If there is a reformation contigent in the cloister that wants to shake things up, this could be fun.

I like that he gets to decide that he'll serve the church in "prayer" as Pope Emeritus.

Basically, I'm retiring, I'm keeping the perks, I'm the pope and you're not so fark you I can do what I want.

Just to irritate conservatives, I'd like to see the College of Cardinals elect Obama as the next Pope.

Considering the most vocal social conservatives in this country tend to be evangelicals, and they tend to think of the Pope as some kind of anti-Christ, many of them wouldn't be irritated.  In fact, many would say, "Told ya so."

It's Latin. "E" means "you're out", and "meritus" means "you deserve it".

For a guy who figured on being a "temp" for several years until he passed on and someone emerged who would be able to to take the helm of the Church for the next couple of decades or so, he did ok.  Yes, I'm aware of all the allegations made about him before he became Pope.

Now, back when Pope Benedictine XVI was still Cardinal Ratzinger, he convinced John Paul II to put him in charge of investigating sex crimes within the church. Before that, there was no investigative office for sex crimes. None. Benedictine created the office and took responsibility upon himself.  All the time John Paul II was standing up to Communism, standing up for Poland, nearly getting shot to death, and generally acting like a superhero, all of this stuff was brewing in the background, and not being taken care of by John Paul II. At the time Benedictine XVI went after some very high-profile targets. There was incredible political pressure from the Vatican to back off going all the way up to John Paul II himself.  I know some people want to hang responsibility for some of the cases that were mishandled on his shoulders, but if it weren't for Benedictine, I'm sure that most of the crimes he investigated wouldn't have been investigated.  So I have respect for the man.

And I'm not a Catholic.  And I don't really like the Catholic church that much.  I do think John Paul II represents a high-water mark for the Catholic church.  After him, I think it's a downward spiral for that faith until the Catholic Pope has as much worldwide influence as the Coptic Pope.

And he deserves it for what?  Working for an organization that is founded upon taking advantage gullible people?

makes one wounder was this all planned form the begining. maybe he was told ok your going be pope for a few years
but once we find a able body person who will be a better fit then you retired and get all this for doing it.

Wonder if the new Pope will strip him of those titles and lock him up to starve to death like the last one that resigned.

How in the fark is a long shot of a helicopter flying over Rome news?  fark you ABC, CBS, and NBC you SHOULD be reporting on child sex abuse and why the Vatican is allowed sovereignty when it's just a cult of pedophiles.

Deserves to be out, I meant. Okay, it would have worked better if it hadn't been a voluntary resignation - although I don't know if there's a procedure in place to fire popes.

Since he was still Pope when he got on the chopper, did Benedict take the Vatican's nuclear launch codes with him, or did he leave them behind for his successor?

He was 78 when he became Pope.  Questions?

Entirely possible *he* didn't think he'd still be alive in 2013 when he took the job.  A reasonable assumption, even for someone who has excellent quality of medical care.

I always preferred this one.

CSB: I once dated a girl who had a brother around toddler age. He found out that he could get a whole room laughing out loud by saying that line. Coming from a little kid, puffed up with self-satisfaction at finding  the perfect joke, it was hilarious. He would toddle into the room, start pointing at the adults, and say, "f♥ck you, f♥ck you, and f♥ck you! Who's next?" and then, for added effect, he'd repeat it.

Of course, he got the "That's naughty! you shouldn't say that word!" response, but it was sort of weak coming from a room full of adults who were gasping for breath due to the surprise of a small child bursting in and cursing them all out in the funniest way imaginable.

But then in the coming weeks, like Kristen Wiig or the cast of MAD TV, he repeated the once-loved joke over and over until it was no longer funny, and then became sort of annoying.
