    Right. Advice for the next pope (& Co.): If the shoe fits, wear it!

    I understand that Herman Cain and Sarah Palin are available.

    Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI has moved to a cloistered convent, and will wear the same outfit he wore as pope, except for the ruby slippers.


    In a seemingly unrelated thread, I just saw a Simpson’s rerun in which Maggie was trying to learn the word ‘octogenarian’.


    Once, I would gladly have spent the rest of my life in a cloistered convent, but today, all the inhabitants would be octogenarians, at least until their next birthdays.

    I’d certainly be happy if the Catholic Church disappeared from the face of the earth.

    Yeah, this one is brilliant. “Small shoes to fill.”

    You mean he’ll still wear that two-foot tall HAT (crown)??? How pretentious…
    I kinda thought he would would live the life of a simple man, but clearly, there is no handbook out there that defines the lifestyle of a former pope…for over six centuries, former popes have simply laid in repose, having been called home by The Maker of All Things.

    Perhaps he’ll get the rest he needs if he simple declares that he wants to be treated like any other former pope…an occasional quiet and dignified visit, and otherwise left alone in the papal catacombs…

    I left my job “early” because of all the pomp an’ ceremony – but I didn’t die, and I’m not tellin’ what that job was…

    They’ll have to wait in line behind Mel Gibson

    “Is it the shoes?” “No, Mars.”
    Actually, never mind the shoes… when are they going to do something about that ridiculous hat?!

    “Love your neighbor as yourself…”
    “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God”
    “Sell everything you have and give to the poor.”
    Not to mention Jesus choosing to focus on service to the poor (rather than abandonment) and healing the sick even on the Sabbath.
    Sounds closer to Socialism than anything the Republicans are currently offering.
    I responded to your message on yesterday’s Signe cartoon, by the way.

    Consider the canonical implications of electing an atheist as the next Pope.

    Prfesser, that has been the situation for centuries, yea millenia. You don’t think they actually believe that nonsense, do you? They’re just a bunch of sociopaths that recognized a good scam when they saw one. The Church has been in the business of fleecing (and buggering…) the flock from the start.

    \Making the Catholic Church look like a fantasy, will people have been trying to do that for years. Sorry the Christian Church as a whole has been around for 2000 years. You can’t change that.
