Tim Minchin - The Pope Song

Fark the motherfarker, fark the motherfarker
Fark the motherfarker, he's a farking motherfarker
Fark the motherfarker, fark the motherfarker
Fark the motherfarker he's a total motherfarker
Fark the motherfarker, fark the motherfarker
Fark the motherfarker, fark him, fark the motherfarker
Fark the motherfarker, fark the motherfarking Pope

Fark the motherfarker, and fark you motherfarker
If you think that motherfarker is sacred
If you cover for another motherfarker who's a kiddy-farker
Fark you, you're no better than the motherfarking rapist
And if you don't like the swearing that this motherfarker forced from me
And reckon it shows moral or intellectual paucity
Then fark you, motherfarker, this is language one employs
When one is farking pissed about motherfarkers farking boys...

/Naaaww... let me tell you how I really feel.

"fark you, fark you, fark you, fark you, we're cool, fark you, I'm out"

So the Papacy is equivalent to a TotalFark account?

Baron Harkonnen: 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.


Eh. Not totally sure I agree.  Ratzinger was always the Vatican's enforcer head of the Office that used to be called the Holy Inquisition that handles things like priestly discipline, rooting out heresy etc.  he was always known as the Admin guy whereas JPII was the idea guy, and was famously hard-nosed about it (there was a joke going around the Vatican twenty years ago about Ratzinger going into the confessional with Jesus himself and Jesus coming out and starting to say Hail Marys).  The problem was, while Ratso was a real heavy when it came to doctinal disputes, particualrly with American Catholic universities and the like,  on the subject of pedophilia, he blinked big time.  His actions to spirit Cardinal Law away from Boston and into a role that gave him diplomatic immunity just as MA prosecutors were preparing to indict him speaks volumes of his approach to the scandal,  it wasn;t about cleaning house and bringing in the sunshine, it was all about closing ranks, and trying to avoid legal liability.

It was the wrong thing to do, and now it's hurting the church badly.  As for the Church's diminished role, unless you are old enough to remeber the church before JPII, you can;t really understand how he changed the role and stature of the pope on the world stage (only John XXIII in the last few centuries has had anywhere near the impact JPII did -and his influence was largely internal to the church)    before him the average non-catholic  wouldn;t have even known who the pope WAS.  Afterwards he was a major world leader in many ways.   I think a lot of that had to do with the PERSON of JPII himself (exceptional writer, fluent in 26-odd languages, fairly well-regarded philospher in academic circles) and I doubt we'll see another personality like his in our lifetimes, and crtainly not one who can get through the hardline  College of Cardinals Ratzinger created in JPII's declining years to "stuff the ballot box" for his election

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


Why not? The pope hat would look good sitting next to his Nobel peace prize.

Crewmannumber6: 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 really doubt it.

Benedict had a hand in picking almost every cardinal who will participate at the conclave, either directly
or when he was JPII's right hand.  The next pope will likely be as conservative as Benedict, even with the
double whammy of the sex abuse allegations and the supposed Vatican corruption scandal.  I truly hope
I am being wrong and cynical, but I doubt it.

I wonder, though, if as Pope Emeritus Benedict will continue cozying up to the ultra-conservative types
he's been trying to court througout his pontificate.

for the first time in history, there will be a reigning pope and a former pope living side by side in the Vatican

So, which one gets to speak as the Infallible Word of God?

FTA: "Benedict will stay until April when renovations are completed on a convent in the Vatican that will be his new home."

A convent? Will there be spankings and Oral Sex?

I read that as the Inflatable Word of God, which was an interesting mental image.

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

Interesting... now was this for sport?


He wasn't a cardinal, but was voted to be pope because his monastic order was wildly popular. He decided he hated being pope, and created the rule that allowed him to retire. He quit a few months later. His successor was threatened by his predecessor popularity and had ordered his imprisonment. He was able to avoid it for a while, but eventually got caught, and died soon afterwards.

Pope Celestine I.

They will make him an anchor of the church. As in, there will be a small room built into the cellar of the building where he will be entombed save for a hole in the wall large enough to pass items in and out of.
He will live in quite contemplation and solitary prayer never seeing another soul until he passes away on his own, or the church deems that his spirit would best serve god, at gods side, and seal up the food hole.

<i>Some Church scholars worry that if the next pope undoes some of Benedict's policies while his predecessor is still alive, Benedict could act as a lightning rod for conservatives and polarize the 1.2 billion-member Church.</i>

Not possible, those come right from God, rite? He wouldn't contradict Himself, rite?

hdhale: 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.

martid4: Jesus H. Christ, aren't these guys a little old to be in college?

Their college is older than yours.  Have you not heard of continuing adult education?  ;-)


Placeholder Pope.  I'm an American Catholic, and even we knew that's what he was.  He's just jumping the gun to get to the next guy.
