TerminalEchoes: Yeah but there's also that whole "Thou shalt not tempt the Lord they God" thing in the gospels. To me, that means that you should trust God (if you believe in him, that is) to protect you but daring him to do so by doing something stupid might not be a good idea. There are plenty of people on this planet who would love to snipe a Pope, I'm sure. And for him to just walk around without some sort of physical protection might be construed as tempting God. I don't know. That's just my take on it.


So, god is more like the Harbinger, from Mass Effect?

/Assuming direct control.../

Funny how god was never personally responsible for knowingly allowing an agent of evil access to paradise, but two innocent children, (who had no knowledge of good and evil,) were evidently held to a higher standard than god even held his own all-knowing ass to. And we all got punished for it.

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.

Nabb1: I don't recall it every being part of Christian theology that there were any guarantees one would assuredly avoid an untimely death through a belief in God.  Even for Popes.  But, if that's working for you, stick with it.


Actually the belief that God will protect the faithful from danger is pretty common in Christianity, as is the idea that everything is a part of Gods plan.

Maybe the Pope is afraid that God might want him dead?  If I was fighting against contraception despite all the human suffering overpopulation and unplaned pregnancies cause I would be worried about God being pissed at me.

Of course, commoners should just accept that whatever happens to them is God's will, even though that's not good enough for the church nobility right?

Melvin Lovecraft: It will be business as usual for the Catholics. No contraception, no abortion under ANY circumstances, and gays are an abomination.

sethen320: vpb: fickenchucker:

Yeah.  When anyone makes up something to complain about it pisses me off.  Right-wing, left-wing, it doesn't matter.  The world has enough to complain about that has a legitimate foundation of hypocrisy or unfairness.  Making crap up and advertising one's stupidity irritates me.  It reminds me subby is most likely old enough to vote and breed, which saddens me.

So then, what do you think Fark is for?

Seriously? You're not even going to attempt an actual argument or discussion? I thought he had a good point.

fickenchucker: Unless he's willing to throw his monkey shiat back on our famous leaders and expect Obama to tool around in a standard-issue Malibu. But I think not.


Though some on this site might disagree, I don't remember Obama claiming to be the infallible Earthly representative of an omnipotent being.  That's quite a masher to have in your corner to be afraid of puny secular slings and arrows.  It's rather similar to the devout going into hysterics when they think their lives are in real danger, or praying for the god to remove a terminal illness.  When they get down to where the cheese binds, there isn't a lot of real faith on display.

Giltric: OddLlama: God will protect him. Right?

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?

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.
