Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: So they're going back to making everyone Bishops again?
meat0918: Raised Roman Catholic, almost became a priest, became an atheist and computer scientist instead.
Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: Foundling: Raised Catholic.Never figured out what the hell a "Monsignor" was.Monsignor : Priest :: Sergeant Major : SergentMore or less.
What's your malfunction, Padre?
HAMMERTOE: TV's Vinnie: I'll bet she's shooting cinderblocks from her ass every time she hears of the latest thing coming out of Rome these days.Don't forget, to the church, the pope is the living, breathing mouth of god. He is called the Holy See because he can see things other men can't, do things other men can't do...[www.syffal.com image 184x237]
Sybarite: Do they still get to keep Curate, Prefect, Canon, Lama, and Patriarch? I mean, depending on level.
Jmb5346: Do I still have to call him Uncle when in public?
TV's Vinnie: Anyone remember Mother Angelica on EWTN? She's so ubber oldschool that even the idea of the Mass spoken in English was too radical for her and insisted on it being 100% Latin. If they brought back the Spanish Inquisition, she'd be happy as fark about it.[3.bp.blogspot.com image 300x178]She had a few strokes in her latter years and one friend joked that she turned into "Long John Sister", but in the last few episodes she was on before the network asked her to "retire from TV" (probably because she was creeping the f*ck out of the viewers), she was still as backward as ever with her views.I'll bet she's shooting cinderblocks from her ass every time she hears of the latest thing coming out of Rome these days.
Laobaojun: Last time there was this degree of change in the Catholic church, in my town there was a mass 'walk of shame' from the Catholic church to the Episcopalian church.
Laobaojun: Osato: Ghastly: Something tells me this new pope has an impending date with serious illness in his near future.He made it this far. Something tells me he's really, really good at not getting ill.I wonder if being a Jesuit has anything to do with it./This will be the last Jesuit pope for centuries.
yakmans_dad: I've always treated Faith and Belief as synonyms. I don't understand the distinction you assert. (Ex-Catholic)
TV's Vinnie: I'll bet she's shooting cinderblocks from her ass every time she hears of the latest thing coming out of Rome these days.
Foundling: Raised Catholic.Never figured out what the hell a "Monsignor" was.
The My Little Pony Killer: So what's he doing about the priests who have committed crimes and been moved to different locations? You know, the ones whose crimes the church knows all about, whose statute of limitations have been reached in the real world, and who Pope Hopey Change promised to do something about? What about that?/in before cries of "stop not sucking off the pope! what's wrong with you!"
Gunny Highway: We met with the monsignor, who served at our church, on a vacation to Rome. He was working for the Vatican at the time and gave us a cool tour of some off the beaten bath churches that were not open to the public. Awesome guy./csb
