Pope resigns

I'm in shock. He claims age and infirmity, but how much had to do with increasing sex scandals.

The reporting this morning says that, while catholic church attendance is down in the US, it is practically nonexistent in Europe because of the scandals.

Someone on DL mentioned his connection with the sex scandals in Europe. He was another archbishop or cardinal who moved pervert priests around.

Everyone is calling it a "resignation." What the hell is wrong with "abdication"? Are they afraid their readers/audience won't know what it means?

He just signed to replace Dick Morris on Fox News. It makes sense, since he's always followed the Dick.

Not so fast, R10. I told ya I had a "name" to replace Cooper at 10PM.

Attendance in Europe was down to nothing long before the scandals. Face it, American attendance didn't collapse only because Poles, Filippinos, and Mexicans consider Catholicism a marker of national identity.

He's in ailing health. You can tell just by looking at him. He's 85.

When I met him I told him, his dress was divine. But his purse was on fire!!!

"his connection with the sex scandals in Europe. He was another archbishop or cardinal who moved pervert priests around."

Does anyone know why he was made pope, in spite of his history of protecting pedophiles? Was it not discovered during the screening process, or did the college of cardinals think it was okay?

You really are Johnny-on-the-spot, aren't you, OP?

R17 - it's because religious institutions uphold evil and reward sociopathy.

"You either resign when they tell you or the kill you and make you a saint."

This is why I was so personally drawn to the role of Evita Duarte de Peron.

My husband Mitt should become Pope. He needs to come down off that post-election cross and wear it as a smart pontifical piece.

(And I already have the papal inauguration gown.)

[quote]or did the college of cardinals think it was okay?

Are you kidding? The church not only allowed pedophilia as part of the culture in the church, they actively covered it up. When they got caught and sued by victims, they had dioceses declare bankruptcy to protect church assets rather than pay victims.

There's been no remorse and much effort to hide and abdicate any responsibility for the lives of children affected by the church's pedophiles.

Trust, hon, that the cardinals were not only fine with it, they were part of it.

In Boston, they closed many churches and used that money to pay the victims there -- usually the most liberal parishes who demanded accountability from the archdiocese and from Cardinal Law.

I wouldn't be a bit surprised if Mahoney never returns to the U.S. when he travels to Rome to vote for the next pope. Like Law, they'll find a cushy job for him to avoid being prosecuted for his criminal activities.

The D.A. in Philly would have nailed that nasty pig Bevilaqua last year, but the evil fuck died before he could be prosecuted. Instead, one his henchman priests took the fall and is now sitting in jail.
