Dune is one of the few movies where I can hear a line of dialogue, or see a still/clip of a scene and recite the dialogue from that point onward. (See also: Star Wars) I'm sad that the CE Blu-Ray is of such crappy quality, but what are ya gonna do?

When I get at-bats in softball, I do the "It is by will alone I set my mind in motion..." ramble; it confuses the hell out of catchers and has earned a run on an error.

Yeah, but not the GOOD stuff, that Dan Brown and the esoteric fanatics all tell us is in the SECRET Archives.

Which is probably good, because if the Necronomicon were put on the internet, we would probably all be transported to the realm of the cenobites, and that would be a real dick move for the Pope to make.

Can I also state the obvious.  When the Brooklyn Museum of Art mounted an exhibit called "PIss Christ", did the Archbishop of New York issue a Fawta on the muesum?  Did Catholics riot and burn down the museuum?  On Broadway there is a musical called "The Book of Morman" which mocks an important sacarament in the Morman faith. Has a Morman terrorist walked into the theatre and blown the place up?  No, infact Gov. Romney visited the play, met the cast back stage and told them he enjoyed the play.   Care to guess what would happen over a "Piss Mohmammad" or a "Book of Allah"  Sorry folks but Christians are not the enemy.  Gay Marriage and Homosexuaity are real issues that effect real people.  I am not unsympathetic, but remember, when you go to the airport you are not stripped searched because of a threat of Christian terriorism.  You are told not to bring a backpack or cooler to a public event, and it is not because of the threat of Christian terrorism. I don't know how many of you on this board are gay, but I do know that 100% of you are infidels.  Think about it....

brandent: Hdj_bigbird: I'll believe him when he liquidates the Vatican Bank and all of the assets of the Vatican.

He just might.  He's made statements to that effect and has recently started an investigation at the bank and appointed someone like him to get on the inside.  It's harder than it looks I bet though.  Other things he's done:

Washed feet of women.  That's a pretty big deal actually.
Said have married priests was only a matter of "policy" change.
Fired the entire bureaucracy.  Well not really but I believe what happens is they all voluntarily resign with every Pope and then are reappointed.  I don't believe he has reinstated them yet.

This is lightning level speeds of change for that institution.


Married priests is just a policy change. It was started in medieval times, when the eldest male was (a the sole heir of family property and b) had to become a priest, so all that property went to the Church. Before that, priests were allowed to marry.
For fun, Francis should fill the vacancies with fellow Jesuits. There would be major changes fairly quickly.

What would you think of Microsoft if it was well documented that their executives were molesting children and instead of having them arrested or even fired, they were simply relocated around so they couldn't get caught? What would you think of people who knew about this but still gave them money? Would people who were opposed to these practices be called bigots, anti-Microsites?
