Well, "amid many tribulations" is dead on. Whoever takes over is gonna have to deal with the mess of the pedo priest scandal, reconciling the archaic views of birth and contraception with the modern day realities of an overpopulated world and disease, and the mass exodus of church members to Protestant sects that are more liberal, to agnosticism, atheism, and general who-cares-about-it-ism from the cradle Catholics.

So don't pick anyone named Peter, or who is from Rome or Italy. Problem solved.

Silly cat, that's not how these prophecies work! You'd think that when Jesus wasn't named Emmanuel folks might have scratched their heads and gone "Huh, guess he doesn't fulfill that prophecy." Oh wait, nope. They just give it to him as a title instead of a name and, voila! Insta-prophecy!

Same thing happened with Benedict; his line was something about an olive branch, and then his papal symbol had an olive branch in it. It's like the people who hold the prophecy and make the symbols are playing in the same rigged game or something! Smiley: lol

IIRC, it's not the pope resigning that's the issue, it's that Benedict was the second-to-last pope named in the prophecy. The next one is "Peter the Roman," who will see the end of the Catholic Church. Something like that. The crazies were hoping that Benedict would last for a good long time, because they don't want to see the end of the Church.


He was never going to last a long time. Old dude is old, and he didn't even look young for his age or anything.

That was only because of the unholy magicks keeping him sort of more or less alive-ish.

Bored or not - that's like stalker behavior. Smiley: um

Understandable and acceptable only if it's done in a pitiable attempt to impress Samira

I only looked because I remembered the other misuses in recent threads, most notably the Ron Paul one. It just stood out because I don't typically see many people use "whom" at all. It would seem that most people will use "who" when "whom" should be used, but the opposite would appear to be more rare in occurrence.

If I've learned anything today, it's that the doctrine of Papal Infallibility probably comes in second to only the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception when it comes to Catholic things completely misunderstood by the world at large.

I learned that the real reason we stopped using the electric chair for executions was because the people that survived apparently gained electricity based super powers.

I think I understand the misunderstanding around Papal Infallibility (basically there are a ton of conditions that need to be met, and the last Infallible Edict was like in 1950 or something?), but what's misunderstood by Immaculate Conception? This is coming from a former Catholic, I always knew it as "Mary was untouched by even Original Sin, and remained sinless up through giving birth to Jesus, so only she was a proper vessel for Christ to come into world."

Is that right? I always understood it as a ham-fisted way of saying, even if some other virgin gave birth to a child (like Julius Caesar, who was said to be a virgin birth as well), only Mary alone was ever free of sin and thus able to birth the Messiah.

Likewise, when to use whom vs who (Catholicly speaking).

The common misconception about the Immaculate Conception is that it refers to the virgin pregnancy of Mary and not to her own sinless state at the time she conceived. Or, more properly, Mary's own conception/birth without the taint of original sin.

"So you're pregnant even though you told me you broke up with Johnny? What was this, the Immaculate Conception?!"

Hey Smash. Is there a "Rollover" on the papal dead pool?

It's always been a safe bet to stick with a pontif, although if they go for the young-ish Aff'kuhn dude, might be worth switching back to Anthony Hopkins, despite his pickled liver keeping him semi-embalmed.

What's up with God picking this guy to be the pope? Shouldn't he have picked someone who could make it the whole way? It almost makes you believe that it's just human beings picking the Popes, and not God.
