When John Paul died in 2005, this Popemobile was put on display in a Philippine church and became a pilgrimage destination for the country's Catholics who couldn't afford to go to the Vatican for the burial ceremony. It's probably the only time a car built in the Philippines has ever been worshipped.

Yeah, they're not going to let him keep taking the bus to work.

When you got a bunch of nut bars gunning for you, a $500k bullet-proof car might be in order.

/not sure why it has to be $500k, but eh.

He should sell it and then that would fix all the poor peoples' problems.

Probably recieves more death threats than a black president.

Armored vehicles designed to protect the occupant are expensive.

Company car. Nothing to see here.

But if you lift up the floormats you'll see that it's made entirely of pre-pubescent scrotums.

God helps those who help themselves. It'll look like it's the armor stopping the bullets, but it'll really be Jebus.

The Pope is the head of a sovereign nation and represents a billion people. He lives in a city that is effectively one huge golden artifact. He's going to have some fancy stuff.
 
2013-03-14 11:20:21 AM
seems like that money (along with the billions the church keeps in it's little hide-away accounts could be better spent, you know... helping the people that fall for their little stories.

it's just like george carlin said -- god is all knowing, all poweful, but he's TERRIBLE with money.

Jeez, subby.  Would you rather he ride in a 1961 Lincoln Model 74A convertible?

WTF Indeed: Catholic haters are in for a shock when they realize what the Jesuits are all about.


Yeah, after they do a little research and consider its implications, I'm sure their opinions will change. Despite never having done that about anything before, ever.

This is not surprising, as the pope is part of a pentavirate of the richest people in the world, along with the Queen, the Rothchilds, the Gettys, and Colonel Sanders before he went tets-up.
 
2013-03-14 11:22:47 AM
can't help but noting that according to the article he already turned it down at least once...

Yup, a bullet proof car is in order.

Why? Because bullets are real.

He is. Who do you think gave man the ability to think about things like designing vehicles that can stop a bullet or bomb from injuring the vehicles occupants?

With the top down? Better avoid school book depositories.

But, ya see, even with a half million dollar car, he's still poor next to Jesus who is richer than 100x every man and woman to ever live.

Only if they put up the bubble top. It may rain, after all.

I think the most important issue here is this: The guy is suspected (or known) to have been playing along with the Argentinian military regime, and did not say a word when two fellow Jesuits were arrested by the secret police.

But then again, the last guy also had some issues, and it's hard to go beyond the hype of John Paul II.

I'm pretty sure they have a few of those, down in the Vatican Vault.

That, and dragon bones, the Iron Throne, the One Ring, the original version of the Star Wars Christmas Special, and my left sock.

The President (at least this one, unlike the last guy) doesn't claim to have a direct communication line to god.

You know who else played along with military regimes and even helped them arrest people and confiscate their possessions?

Wait. You mean heads of state ride around in vehicles with lots of expensive security extras?  When did this start happening?  I gotta crawl out from under my rock more often.

FTFA:

However, Pope Francis -- known to opt for public transport in his home town of Buenos Aires -- refused the car that had been prepared for him after his election on Wednesday.
Instead of traveling from the Sistine Chapel to the Santa Marta residence in a car carrying the license plate SCV1 (Vatican City 1), he jumped on the bus alongside the other cardinals.

Is this the game where we all end up blaming the Jews/Lizards/Reverse Vampires and their never-ending conspiracy to bring down the Christian White Man exemplary gestalt that are 'muricans? If so, I want out, last time we did that, I woke up in a brothel next to a goat and a honneycomb.

Yeah, it's going to be VERY interesting to have one of "God's Marines" as Pope.
