it is hard ro imagine a pope without a catholic church - where would he shiat?

Last priest, last king, entrails, etc.

Time for a female pope. Or maybe Idris Elba.

How unusual.  America is in the process of not creating new voters, but instead keeping many of those from voting.  Expect the catholic conservatives on the Supreme Court to be quite happy to justify that suppression.

They should bring back David Tennant, only this time he'll be a different Pope with a completely new identity while trying to unravel a mystery from his distant past.

It's almost guaranteed that one of the popes during the Medieval period was a woman.

The Trump equivalent is Gorsuch and Bennett.

Man, if I had a nickel for every time the pope was forced to interact with the video game Undertale, I'd have two nickels... Which isn't a lot, but I mean, it's weird that it's happened twice, right?

A Valeyard Pope?
 
2022-06-05 10:42:58 AM  
Is it a requirement that the Pope be chosen from the College of Cardinals?

Would be an epic troll on the part of Frank if they voted in some 35-year-old Franciscan from Guatemala.  I guess one of those new cardinals could be some nobody from South America, and the fix is in.  That would really stick it to the Italians.

Yes, and the Catholic church certainly will not let it continue.

His replacement will be more in line with the church's values.
 
2022-06-05 10:47:34 AM  
Well let's hope his successor continues his legacy of liberalizing the Church.

Technically...any Catholic man can be elected Pope. I don't think that they have reached outside of the College of Cardinals in the last 600-700 years.

According to Dan Brown in one of the books/movies with titles I always get confused, they just have have to be ordained and near by.  I don't care enough to actually check if that's true or not.  Probably, just like everything church related, it's all tradition and no actual rules.

Aside from his huge support for Russia in the war... yes

He and Benedict are/were quite liberal, for being popes.

/It was especially jarring since the pope before Benedict was John Paul II, who started well before I was born... and he was obnoxiously far-right.  He was like a modern republican.

I will say this about Nazi pope: he at least did the right thing in saying, "Hey, maybe it's okay to slow down AIDS by using condoms." On that topic, Pope Francis has been like, "La la la, I can't hear you, I don't care if people die."
 
2022-06-05 11:45:11 AM  
Does anyone else find it weird they hold a feast day for a former pope who threw in the towel after five months on the job?  Did he just hand over his robes one morning and roll away in the 13th century version of a biatchin' van?

He's also said "who am I to judge homosexuality" which I paraphrase and also spoke out against Communion being withheld for people who are pro-choice.  Those were f$cking huge.

Not speaking on condoms sucks but at least better than speaking against him.

From our perspective he seems like a dinosaur embracing a bigoted institution.  However, from the Church's perspective he's an absolute wild man.

Rattlesnake Rattles Me: Blathering Idjut: LL316: He's the first pope that I can remember being a decent person.

Yep.  This article makes me sad. There are more than enough reactionary leaders in the world without potentially having another one.

The Catholic Church is going to go all Nazi when he leaves.  Its members are still super pissed about this pope and you know they're going to seek revenge, specially American Catholics.


I'm not sure what you mean by revenge. Are they going to say "and also with you" instead of "and with your spirit" at mass?

I think it's doubtful the next pope will be an American. There are two American cardinals who are considered papabile: Burke and O'Malley. If it were down to those two, the College of Cardinals with so many appointed by Francis would lean towards O'Malley. But it's much more likely that the next pope will be an Italian.

Arumat: a schism the church has been suppressing for a century or more


Lolwut?

The thing Bergoglio is battling has nothing to do with whatever "schism" you're worried about. It's that Catholicism is Princess Bride-level mostly dead in Europe, the last refuge of fascists in America, and a booming religion elsewhere, with the minor problem that the people elsewhere aren't interested in the RCC's theology, they're interested in its ability to organize a social climate where poor people aren't shiat on the powerful's shoes.

No.
You read about the church officials farking kids, or covering up farking kids. Like it is their MISSION.
And you read about churches spreading the word ... Passing the plate, asking for money. Converting the poor, telling them to multiply. To make more babies
That they won't feed

But will fark.

Problem is American evangelists crossing into Catholicism without understanding the precepts of the New Testament.

Catholics should be aligned democratic.

The doctrine of papal infallibility therefore means that they despise the word of God and are going to hell.

So they've got that going for them, which is nice.
