I don't mean to offend anybody but I really don't give a shit. Are the Catholics really that into who is the pope? Did he suddenly become more holy when he got elected? I think it is a bunch of bullshit. How do elderly German men suddenly get holy?

..............How do elderly German men suddenly get holy?

There's a secret handshake and a confidentiality contract that has to be signed by the new pope and Jesus Christ himself...........It's a lot of work, but it's generally a successful transaction.

Not really, I'm Baptist.

I do care about one thing, though, when it comes to the Pope. I know they got a new one, but I can't find anywere on the internet or TV how much he signed for?

HEY!! BA--DOOM!!..CHING! I'll be here all week, be sure to tip your waitresses.

I know a number of kids who looked up to John Paul II. Thought of him as a hero. Now, one alternative to that is Terrell Owens. Owens or a pope? Owens, or a pope? Hmm...

Let's just hope the ol' fella has the Papal pre-employment physical.

How do elderly Catholic German men suddenly turn holy....maybe its similar to when Catholic wine turns into blood.

I am a Catholic and I am very concerned and care very much about the new Pope. Here is a link that will certainly create a buzz. But you don't have to bash me for it. I sent this out in an email a couple weeks ago the day before Pope John Paul II died.

http://www.crystalinks.com/papalprophecies.html

It's not totaly correct from what I have been told by Catholic Priests. Peter the Roman is the Pope who will lead us through the final days. Satan can never sit in the "Throne of Peter" so the anti christ will never be the Pope.
I can see it now all of the people who are going to bash me for what I truly believe. Anyway, God Bless.

Don't worry about it. Everyone here is extremely tolerant of all views and beliefs.

Only thing is, Gochiefs will probably be wondering about your dong. He has a thing about that.

No. Church was created to give certain people money and power. Now, I'm not saying Popes are corrupt evil bastards (well they used to be) but that the whole system is messed up. I respected JPII as a man, not as a Pope. Hopefully this guy will achieve 1/4 of what JPII did, but from I understand he's just a temporary "fill in" type pope.

I'm not going to bash you for what you truly believe, but whoever is promoting that the "anti-christ" is one person and this person has yet to come, hasn't done their basic biblical homework.

Or alternatively, it would suck just not being able to have sex, reguardless of the size of your dong.

Your mentioning of an enormous dong and how wonderful said dong is really makes me wonder about you.

I'm not bashing you.

But, I honestly don't believe that this statement could be true. For the simple reason that HUMANS are prone to error and are not perfect (God allows us to all make mistakes). HUMANS are voting/selecting another human into the office.

I don't believe that anyone who takes religion seriously can be completely disinterested in the subject.

I'm Lutheran, not Roman Catholic. But I do care from the sense that he is the leader of a large fraction of the "Holy Christian Chuch, the communion of saints" here on earth. I have many extreme differences with the Roman faith, but do agree with the historical postions of the Church with respect to important concepts such as:

Christianity is a sacramental faith
The essential role of the priesthood
The appropriateness of the liturgy as a form of worship
The reality of sin and its essentially static nature (sins are defined by God and are not conditional on culture)
All male clergy

Furthermore, I'd much rather see a Pope who acknowledges the existance of absolute truth than one who believes everything is relative and conditional. At least with the former you can have a common basis for which to discuss differences since both parties are seeking an objective truth. With the latter, discussion leads only to less coherence, since all points of view have equal claim to the truth.
