    Try giving the Pope a really big bribe.

    I am a Hindu – so, there’s no bias when I say that I don’t think Pope Francis deserves that…

    Rat being nice to somebody? That’s not a case for sainthood, that’s a certified miracle.

    I’d like to hear how Father Guido Sarducci would answer that.

    i’d wager a guess it might be a convoluted answer…

    To be a Saint? Well, in the Roman Catholic Church you have to be dead. And have a couple of verified miracles. Then, one has to nominate one for Beatification, followed later, usually long after one is dead, Canonisation. Oh yeah, one needs to have demonstrated exemplary qualities throughout life. Good exemplary qualities, not bad examples, and very little bad behavior.

    Or, a person could just get Saved. “ἁγίων”, is translated as “saints” in several books of the NT, and also as “holy”. Holy means “set apart”.

    Easton’s Bible Dictionary has this entry on Saint:

    Saint

    one separated from the world and consecrated to God; one holy by profession and by covenant; a believer in Christ (Ps. 16:3; Rom. 1:7; 8:27; Phil. 1:1; Heb. 6:10).

    The “saints” spoken of in Jude 1:14 are probably not the disciples of Christ, but the “innumerable company of angels” (Heb. 12:22; Ps. 68:17), with reference to Deut. 33:2.

    This word is also used of the holy dead (Matt. 27:52; Rev. 18:24). It was not used as a distinctive title of the apostles and evangelists and of a “spiritual nobility” till the fourth century. In that sense it is not a scriptural title.

    Everywhere else religion and politics are not suppose to be socially discussed but can be commented on in the comic strip comment section because no one takes anything seriously in the comic strips section.

    To 1911A1,

    Great! The perfect name.

    Rat really doesn’t understand the importance of what’s involved. He just heard the song and figures he wants “to be in that number” when they “go marching in”.
