Pope Francis has warned Italy's mafia world leaders they will go to hell unless they repent and reminded them they cannot take their "blood stained money and blood stained power to the next life."

Now then, he'd be cooking with gas on the burner!

Hellsing Ultimate Abridged, by Team Four Star. It helps if you watch the entire anime with the actual dub before hand. It gets less confusing and more hillarious.

It perhaps helps to watch the series/read the manga a little bit but only to get some of the jokes as they occur.  Honestly, I'm rather impressed at how well they condensed the episodes, added the humor all the while keeping the gist of the story line intact, thus far.  Just wished they'd do episodes quicker.

That show absolutely can not be real. They break so many Amish traditions and a few laws. An Amish person would rather die than forsake tradition. Plus, they run around in a farking car. And, I'm pretty sure modern firearms are not kosher in the Amish world.

Yeah; I don't want to watch the entirety of all 20 episodes before they actually do stuff. I enjoy DBZ; but, only after I've been drinking a while.

I may have to investigate abridged anime; I've always wanted to finish the one series where its vampires vs the Catholic Church; and there's zeppelins and shiat. I'm blanking on the name; I want to say it was something like True Blood, but, that's on HBO.

Well, now we know who Pope Francis really loves, and who he really hates.

He loves the mafia. He hates homosexuals.

See, within the logic of Catholic doctrine, mafiosos and homosexuals are equally hellbound. Yet "liberal" Pope Francis takes it on himself to warn the mafiosos of their ultimate destinies, while offering to homosexuals a false sense of non-judgmental comfort.

It's just cruel. Pope Francis is a cruel cruel man. It's sad that the church has fallen so far from its peak compassionate years during the inquisitions.

That's right, torturing people into conversion is the only compassionate move against the possibility of eternal damnation. Why are today's Catholics so crassly indifferent to their fellow man that they refuse to torture people to save their souls?

I bet it's selfishness. Catholics don't want to go to prison, or receive the death penalty themselves; they're putting their own temporal well-being ahead of other people's spiritual well being.

It's downright sinful.

I have no love for the Catholic (or any other) Church, but they chose exactly the right man for the job this round.

Rannuci: He is taking care of problems. Most recently - Francis names O'Malley to Vatican anti-abuse panel:
Pope Francis today named Cardinal Sean P. O'Malley of Boston and seven other figures with reputations as reformers to guide a new Vatican anti-abuse commission, a move intended to demonstrate resolve about confronting the child sexual abuse scandals that have rocked Catholicism.


Don't mind him. He appears in EVERY Pope Francis thread to complain that Pope Francis is a fraud, etc. S'hard to tell if he's a troll or being serious, but he's completely illogical. S'better just to ignore'em.

Capo Del Bandito: S'what normal folks do when they can't handle using their brains.


So because the logical path I took to arrive at my opinion differs from yours, I'm not using logic?  Good luck in life.
