After the Harley is auctioned at the Grand Palais in Paris on Feb. 6, a Harley Davidson leather jacket also signed by the pope will be sold separately, according to Reuters.

HotWingAgenda: Why in the flying fark did the pope have a motorcycle in the first place?


3rd sentence of the article: The bike was originally gifted to Pope Francis by the company last June in celebration of the 110th anniversary of the motorcycle brand.

What the Pope SHOULD do is ride it from Milwaukee to Sturgis in August and auction it off there...

We could start a Biden/Camero style meme...

Despite years of staunch opposition to organized religion and a more specific disdain for the Catholic church, I find myself really liking this guy. Never thought I'd say that about a Pope, but damned if he isn't coming across as a pretty cool person.

Holy Shiat, American "Christians" would kill this pope out of respect for fine motorcycles on principle, proving once and for all that "American Christians" created the "god" the worship, and not the other way around.
 
2014-01-14 03:01:04 AM
They are estimating 20k for a sales price? You would figure the "custom built for and owned by the pope" thing would bring at least 4 times that

Ya know, somewhere there is a Cardinal that is going to be the next Pope thinking to himself " when I get in there I have to get crap back on the right path and to Hell with this charity and goody two slippers stuff!"

To a very wealthy, very Catholic motorcycle enthusiast, maybe.

It's going to be a sad day when the catholic faithful decide to assassinate*/martyr** him.

*Assassinate if a more 'traditional' catholic pope replaces him and reinstitutes child rape, slut-shaming, and greed as catholic virtues.

**Martyr if someone who holds his beliefs takes his place, unwilling to be a bedwetting coward for the sake of pushing a more Christ-like agenda.
 
2014-01-14 03:47:56 AM
Good.  It's at least kind of a start.

... not that this pope isn't  conceivably a nice guy, but the only thing he's gotten props for that  actually means anything or represents any kind of change in the standard procedure so far is firing a bunch of Cardinals and Bishops for being dicks... if he replaces them with actual reasonable people, I may actually but into the whole "no, this one's a good person for reals" hype.

Until then, all this sucking of his dick for unremarkable things is basically the greatest modern example of "protesting too much".

Considering that the Golf from the nazi pope sold for 190k €, there is no way that this will sell for 12 to 15k

If he fired a bunch of cardinals and bishops "for being dicks" why would he bother if he's only going to replace them with more of the same?

Until then, all this sucking of his dick for unremarkable things is basically the greatest modern example of "protesting too much".

Maybe it's on account of it being really late or else it's just me getting old and senile (or maybe it's both), but what the fark does that sentence even mean?

A healthy dose of skepticism is all well and good, but at least try to make some sense with it. Please and thank you.

Saying out loud that one of his papal superpowers is turning random stuff into overpriced collectibles probably conflicts with the message they intend to send and so they are low-balling it.

Pre-Vatican II churches are the only true Catholic churches. The Second Vatican Council has be an outright disaster.

You know, if they had a picture of him actually leaning or even sitting on the bike, and then autographed it, I'd pay good money, even if I'm not Catholic.

I really hope not, but think so.

I'd love to know what sith/Nazi pope thinks of this pope making him look even worse than he did already.

Thank god we have psychics like yourself who can read the minds and intentions of other humans without ever having met them and can use your fine tuned powers to weed out true believers from what your years of experience and mastery of telepathy has obviously shown you.

DrBenway: If he fired a bunch of cardinals and bishops "for being dicks" why would he bother if he's only going to replace them with more of the same?


If he doesn't intend any real reform and is just doing it as a PR stunt.  Which is highly probable, though I'm hoping I'm wrong.

Until then, all this sucking of his dick for unremarkable things is basically the greatest modern example of "protesting too much".

Maybe it's on account of it being really late or else it's just me getting old and senile (or maybe it's both), but what the fark does that sentence even mean?


It means the current pope is very loudly going "HEY LOOK HOW NOT EVIL WE ARE SEE ME DOING THIS HIGHLY VISIBLE NON-EVIL THING OVER HERE  pay no attention to us covering for the child-rape behind that curtainLOOK IM PERSONALLY CHARITABLE AND shiat  the church gives less in charity proportionally than most private businesses? You shouldn't think about that becauseOMG LOOK I SHOOK A GUY'S HAND THAT  we're going to claimMOST POPES WOULD NEVER TOUCH  even though historically no pope has ever had a problem with it."

Basically he seems to have Google's relationship with not being Evil.
 
2014-01-14 06:26:04 AM
He should take for a spin around town. I bet few pics of him riding it would double that price

Don't worry. As soon as he starts making strong anti-abortion speeches, the love for him will fade fast amongst the Fark liberals.
