I just heard on the radio that the Pope is calling it quits at the end of February.

No reason given but they speculated that it may be as simple as his age (85) making him decide to pass the mantle along.

It would be nice if the next Pope was a younger, more real-life friendly guy, but given that the College of Cardinals that will elect him is likely the same conervative bunch that has been around forever, I doubt it.

**insert standard srossi 'all priests are pedophiles' line here in response to above.** :)

Rumor is the Pope has a severe illness that is making it impossible to continue with the grind of being Pope.

Hopefully they select someone who will allow change to occur within the priesthood, and who will not turn a blind eye to the wrongs several commit, but like khawk mentioned, its doubtful that will happen

Is this departure leading to the entrance for the false prophet?  (Spooky music being played in the background.)

I don't know.  I thought it was, also, but then around the time he was selected, it came out that it would be the next one, but I was like you thinking it was the next one after John Paul II, but then they said it would be the one following this one.

I wonder how the catholics would respond to a non white pope

I bet the false prophet talk would go into overdrive if they selected a non white pope

A non-white Pope would be as good a start as anything in terms of changing how the church operates. Nice idea but probably still unlikely.

On the false prophet stuff, I don't expect the Bible to be any more correct on that stuff than the Mayans were about their end-of-times stuff.

They are talking about an anti-European pope to broaden the fanbase. LOL

I think you are correct.  People would come up with all kinds of conspiracies if he is non-white.

Seems like just yesterday this one started. Seems to have had a much shorter reign than the last one. Covering up rampant pedophilia while damning homos to hell is tough business though, it can affect anyone's health. I wish him the best in his future endeavors.

Some of that was just for khawk because I aim to please. Remember this when voting. As POTY, I believe it would put me right in the running to become the next Pope. Let's make it happen.

Maybe he's avoiding that much-ballyhooed Benedict vs. Miz program.

That's what I think as well, which is sad because I really think that religion needs a non white leader to show that they really are inclusive when it comes to inclusiveness, considering how hard they are trying to get into China, due to dwindling numbers

Thank you. I may vote for you once for it.

First Pope to resign in 600 years.

Going to email the Vatican ~ we have a tourney going on right now on this site and I am thinking the winner can step right into this newly available position.

This is a shame. As time passes there are fewer and fewer bonafide Nazi's serving in positions of power. Uber Alles Benedict.
