In other news, she's still laying on the side of the road starving and dehydrated.

UPDATE:

Authorities are searching for the driver of an older model Ford Focus in connection to the death of an elderly woman whose body was found on the side of a road in Calabria, a known Mafia stronghold in the southern region of Italy.

The driver, described as an elderly man wearing a white robe who appeared to be confused as he waved his arms and babbled incoherently is only wanted for questioning at this time.

Now to replace the lead and follow BMWs with Ford Focus' as well.

Her family brought her there to watch the pope drive by, so probably not.

What a guy,,,
 
2014-06-24 09:30:11 PM
Did someone race ahead to notify them or was it staged from the getgo? The car slowed down and they were already shoving the stretcher up to the side of the car.

/I guess if the pope's car slows down for no reason you can kind've assume he's gonna greet you or wave at least.

Now, see, if *I* stopped my car, got out, and kissed some random chick at the side of the road, I'd get busted.

Guys gets all the best tail, I tell ya....

"Keep that in mind the next time you think twice about holding the door for that old lady walking out of the grocery story behind you."

The doors at the grocery store are automatic, so if I hold them, I'm holding them closed. Why do I need to compare that to the pope being willing to touch normal people?
 
2014-06-24 09:32:46 PM
Dude just told the mob that they're excommunicated and all going to hell. He's lucky the lady didn't explode and take him out Breaking Bad style.

Way to fark up traffic for the cars behind you, Francis.

Yeah, sure. Popes in southern Italy are like Elvi in southern Nevada.

Wasn't his name supposed to be Peter the Roman or something like that though if your into those sort of theories.

He said "Hocus Pope-us Ford Focus", and she was cured.
 
2014-06-24 09:40:11 PM
Why didn't he heal her?

Growing up Jehovahs Witness was a sure-fire path for me to become an atheist and denounce organized religion.

That said, this guy seems like a well-meaning person who is setting a good example. It's hard to hate on him.

I don't believe you.

2014-06-24 09:47:40 PM
That's cool, but I'd like him better if he'd save the rest of us by finally supporting birth control or least stop encouraging births. Would be nice to still be able to take showers by 2050 or have the water for crops, or a glass of water, lakes, etc.

Looks like that kid was trying to give the pope some tongue.

Did he do something after excommunicating the Mafia that was bad? Or was it decided that that was lame?

It's not like prophecy is going to get the guy's name right, neccessarily.   "Peter the Roman" was a description, not a name.

You know, when I was in elementary school, I had a JW friend....we had a deep theological conversation before band one day (as deep as 2nd graders can) where he tried to explain to me the differences between our religions weren't that big.

"Like, you believe Jesus was crucified on a cross, we believe he was crucified on a stake."

Only I heard steak.  yeah...took me a LONG time to figure out how the hell you crucified a guy on a slab of meat in the desert.

Stock up on bottled water and take a shower by 2049? Perhaps?  Then you can get laid.  Hugging trees is no substitute for sex either.

He's not God, nor does he have a golden phone with speed dial.  Despite the rumors ...

Jesus heals. Get over it. Just a fact of life, and faith. Not more than 45 minutes ago I was hunched over in unbearable pain, screaming the Lord's name, profanity, and begging for mercy. Next thing I knew, I let out an enormous, booming fart. It sounded like Jesus was calling my name, felt like God was lifting me into Heaven. Praise Jesus I exclaimed. Praise Jesus indeed. And the Pope. Ever notice how similar the words pope and poop sound and look? Surely it's a miracle.

He's always slipping and acting like some sort of religious figurehead.  He'd better watch out or he'll lose all sorts of popularity with agnostics and atheists.

He was just collecting his pimp money.

"Is Pope Francis gonna have to choke a biatch?"

I bet he's CONCERNED about those of us who find the Pope's kindness a breath of fresh air after Pope Palpatine.

Last week he said he was against the legalization of weed. Said it would ignore the problem, that people need help, not drugs to get them through life.

But unlike the Religious Right here in the US he's against using his power and saying we should influence the governments of the world. He was simply stating his belief against it, like he did capitalism/etc.
