splohn: Let the smearing continue.  Anti-Catholic bigotry is popular again I see.


Well, there is no end of good material.

Here, try this:


One day little Johnny, the altar boy, walks in on father Benefacto masturbating.
"What are you doing, father?"
"Masturbating", says the priest. "You'll be doing this soon."
"Why's that father?"
"Because my wrist is killing me!"

You are right. We should follow the Catholics example and be more tolerant of different lifestyles.

The priests were found "drugged and seminude, in a field"

As Catholic scandals go, I have to say I like any Pope who has a scandal attached to him that sounds like it should start with "Two Jesuits walk into a bar..."

Huffington Post has updated their story. Depending on whom you talk to, Francis either conspired with the junta in the kidnapping of the two priests, or he intervened with the junta to save their lives.

On the basis that Francis was once a Jesuit, my guess is that he did both.

Ratzinger was a disgrace in how he actively shielded pedophile priests before he was pope. Deep down in my gut, I know there was a scandal that caused him to step down, not health issues.

Pope Francis on the other hand, leaves me cautiously optimistic. I mostly like the cut of his gib, especially in regards to his concern for the sick and the poor. His stance on gays isn't something I agree with, but at the same time I'm not sure how you can be a Cardinal and not have to toe the party line from Rome to a certain extent, despite what you may personally believe. Maybe things will be a little different now that he has the infallibility.

I'm reserving judgement, but my first gut feeling is that Francis is genuinely a good human being, so he could be a real force for good, unlike Ratzinger who just screamed scumbag from day one.

He was. Argentina's 70s war criminal/dictator was Jorge Rafael Videla. Not to be confused with Uruguay's  Juan María Bordaberry, Paraguay's Alfredo Stroessner, Bolivia's Hugo Banzer, or Brazil's Emílio Garrastazu Médici...

Peki: farkingismybusiness: MadSkillz: He looks like the guy from those Infiniti commercials back in the 90s, who was also a James Bond villain in the forgettable "Tomorrow Never Dies"

I was going to say he looks like the bad guy in The Adventures of Baron Von Munchausen. Turns out it's the same guy.
[llamabutchers.mu.nu image 475x336]
Good call.

I can't be the only one who remembers him in Jumpin' Jack Flash.

/I'm not even that old


That movie is only two years older than Munchausen. It's just that nobody likes Whoopi Goldberg.

Yaxe: TFA: Per the, "Yorio accused Bergoglio of effectively handing them over to the death squads by declining to tell the regime that he endorsed their work. Jalics refused to discuss it after moving into seclusion in a German monastery." Bergoglio discussed the incident with Sergio Rubin, his authorized biographer.

This is idiotic. First off, 'effectively handed them over' is not the same as sold them out. Simply because the Cardinal was smart enough to keep his mouth shut does not make him a villain in any regard (except for the James Bond-ish way). Secondly, the two priests didn't die. And thirdly, What was the Cardinal supposed to do? Actively work against the ruling military junta? This is stupid media bullshiat at its finest.



Please. This is Fark. What do you think you're doing? Take that logic shiat to The Economist letters section.
