    I have a theory that there is a connection between the Pope resigning and the Archbishop of Canterbury resigning.


    Maybe they are secret lovers and they're just going to leave this whole damn world behind.

    Please tell me someone has written this fanfiction already.

    Cardinal Lust
    Benedict AKA Beni was just your average teen looking out for no one but himself. With his attitude all he wanted was to be the youngest Pope that Vatican High ever saw. However all this changed when he butted heads, and hearts, with the stuffy Arch-Bishi Rowan! Will one love survive under one church???

    I feel sorry for the Pope and all old Catholic priests. Imagine having a wasted life to look back on and no sex.

    God told him to resign.

    There's nothing God can't do!

    God told him he was pope. His doctor told him to resign. He figured the doctor knew better!

    This is how I take it.

    Like the Lord Divine is a pretty omnipotent guy, it's true! But he's no doctor. Nobody who's ever been to medical school would attempt an amateur maneuver like making a woman out of a man's rib bone.

    My favourite joke so far has been "What do you call a Pope who resigns? Ex-Benedict"

    Some versions of the legend suggest that subsequent popes were subjected to an examination whereby, having sat on a dung chair containing a hole called sedia stercoraria, a cardinal had to reach up and establish that the new pope had testicles, before announcing "Duos habet et bene pendentes" ("He has two, and they dangle nicely"),[2] or "habet" ("he has 'em") for short.

    I would actually listen to the Pope's speeches if he had a voice like Ron Perlman.

    I was going to make a joke about pontificating over who should be the next Pope, but then I read up on the etymology of the word.

    Well played, Catholicism.

    So it looks like that under Canon Law, there's really nothing that prevents a Pope from resigning their post. It's just not something that's done.

    I think the dude really is stepping down because of health reasons, and if so, good for him.

    When I first heard about the Pope resigning it was kind of implied that it was for a scandalous reason and I was ready to get so furious if that was the case.

    I'm sorry to hear that he's having health issues, but I'm relieved to know that's the reason why this is happening.

    Oh my god

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prophecy_of_the_Popes

    the prophesy for the next pope is
    112 Peter the Roman, who will Nourish the sheep in many tribulations; when they are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The end.

    THIS IS IT

    Yeah, but
    The Lord of Murder shall perish, but in his doom he shall spawn a score of mortal progeny. Chaos will be sewn from their passage. So sayeth the wise Alaundo.

    To be fair, if I guy shows up in a blue box in the middle of your papal apartment, you're more inclined to believe what he tells you versus some guy you've never seen.

    Mario balotelli is the best dude. Just reading about some of his exploits makes me chuckle. He set off fireworks in his house, visited a women's prison just because, threw darts at youth players, gave a homeless man a thousand pounds, and when pulled over in his car and asked why he was carrying like 10,000 pounds in cash, he replied "because i am rich", among many other stories

    It just this second occurred to me that the Crocopope from Futurama is probably a reference to that cartoon.

    In pope opinions, I really do hope the Catholic Church chooses someone a bit more progressive and liberal and actually takes into account current events. Still consider myself nominally catholic, but man, the positions they take on many issues is backwards as fuck. Chances of that are slim to none though, but a dude can dream

    Everyone was expecting someone much older and conservative the last time around. So I'm really curious to see if 8 years was enough time for them to want to try someone a little more liberal. Or at least a little more ecumenical.

    That whole ridiculousness between the Papacy and the Nuns just made me so angry. So even something like that being resolved would be nice.

    Plenty of non-Catholic Christians probably already think the Pope/Catholic Church is the devil.

    well, as a former catholic I can assure you that they follow the wrong teachings and you can dismiss the criticisms of a bunch of heretics easily.
