The Pope is the new Kardashians now?

Who gives a fark?

Whoever it is, I hope to God he drinks his Bovril.

Although come to think of it, I think Bovril is now the only truly infallible. I believe the Papacy is held only infallible in certain situations now.

So, now every headline with the word "twitter" in it automatically goes to the geek tab huh?
Great.

I have to admit that when I saw that Cláudio Hummes only had 21 followers on twitter, I followed him.  Kinda felt sorry for him.

Once upon a time, there was a man named Scola. He decided to enter the priesthood and became one. Like his classmates, he became a parish priest. After a few years he began to notice something. As his peers grew older and more experienced, the began to rise up in the ranks. First arch-bishop, then Bishop, then Cardinal. Distressed, he went to his Bishop to complain. "I don't want to appear vain, but I have seen all of the other priests I went to seminary with go on to higher posts that I have. I have been a good priest, served God and my flock. Why is it that have not been promoted?" His Bishop took a moment to answer.

"Father Scola, you have to understand that the Church needs to ensure its respectablilty. Sure, it could handle an Arch-Bishop Scola, and a Bishop Scola. But it never could have a Pope Scola...."

/Yes, I'm Catholic
//Probably going to hell for this one
///Probably deserve it too.

No, he's still considered infallible all the time. That's the whole point of him, besides his hat.

Curiously, the "Prophecy of Popes"

In the extreme persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit ... Peter the Roman, who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations: and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the terrible judge will judge his people. The End.


I hope it isn't Cardinal Scola..
 
2013-03-13 01:43:15 PM

Nope. Not at all.

Pssh, the marketing practically does itself. They can sell the Popes-Cola right next to the Pope Dope and the Pope Soap (which, of course, comes on a rope).

/not Catholic
//doesn't see how that would make you go to Hell, admittedly.

I still believe the next Pope will be from Africa after my dream a couple of nights ago where I opened up Fark and it had the headline "The Pope is near"

In a review of Cardinal Scola's 1996 book, The Nuptial Mystery, Luke Timothy Johnson writes in magazine about Scola's "condemnation not only of [13][14]
According to Johnson, "the cardinal's logic, in fact, seems to be that feminism is responsible for homosexuality, because the more women act like men, the more men are likely to want to have sex with other men."[13][14]


Yeah, sounds exactly like what the Catholic Church needs.

He's not actually.  Statements "Ex Cathedra" are considered "infallible," but that's the extent of it.  When he's defining matters of Catholic doctrine, he is infallible, simply because it's his job to decide what "Catholic doctrine" actually is.  In matters of doctrine, people have to choose between agreeing with the Pope or not being Catholic.

It's sort of like the US Supreme Court; following Marbury V. Madison, the Constitution says whatever the majority of Supreme Court judges say it says.

That doesn't mean that any Catholic has to believe the Pope is right about everything.  Nobody believes that.

I couldn't remember whether it was Ex Cathedra or Papal Bull or both or neither. Those crazy Catholics. One century he's infallible the next century he's only partly infallible. There's something to be said for Presbyterianism and it's no fun of any kind.

It's sort of like what DC does with Superman- they just give the Pope new powers as needed, until the guy is totally over-powered.  Then they just ret-con some crap to make him seem vulnerable and interesting again.

I think the Church probably farms it out to Frank Miller these days.

Hey, if it's a Hispanic pope, could he be called Pope Jesus?

i always thought it was cardinal sicola.
 
2013-03-14 04:34:26 PM  
He's the real Pope.

Pope Francis is just a decoy.

Note to johndalek:  You must be confusing Sicola with Cardinal Ricooooooooooooooooooola! He's the Swiss Cardinal. Instead of a Swiss Guard, he's got a Cardinal watch.

Do Argentinians count as "latino"?

And follow-up question if yes, do Italian-Argentianians count?
