I continue to believe the Ratzinger guy lost some sort of significant power struggle, and that's an Italian game.

A two-day, five-ballot decision (even without funeral delays) seems like this was all a done deal by the winning faction in the power struggle, and the Milan guy will be the new one. He will keep things comfy and as they are.

Although it was believed that Rodman was hoping to help Ghana’s Cardinal Peter Turkson become the first black pope, the Associated Press reported that he seemed uncertain. “From Africa, right?” Rodman asked. He did say that he was sure the next pope would be black.

Rodman, via the Guardian, said that Pope John Paul II was his favorite pontiff. “He was cool as hell. He pretty much was like a pimp. Sitting up there … speaking like 20,000 different languages … He was great for the world.”

by Anonymousreply 7403/13/2013

Sorry, Peter the Roman or Petrus Romanus is the False Prophet paving the way for the Antichrist.

Former vatican insider Malachi Martin's asserted that a "Satanic Enthronement ceremony" took place in the Vatican in 1963. The result of this ritual meant the Vatican manifested what clerics referred to as the 'Superforce." Martin had first made reference to a diabolic rite held in Rome in his 1990 non-fiction best-seller about geopolitics and the Vatican, The Keys of This Blood, p 632 where he wrote:

"Most frighteningly for [Pope] John Paul [II], he had come up against the irremovable presence of a malign strength in his own Vatican and in certain bishops' chancelleries. It was what knowledgeable Churchmen called the 'superforce.' Rumors, always difficult to verify, tied its installation to the beginning of Pope Paul VI's reign in 1963. Indeed Paul had alluded somberly to 'the smoke of Satan, which has entered the Sanctuary'... an oblique reference to an enthronement ceremony by Satanists in the Vatican.

Besides, the incidence of Satanic pedophilia --rites and practices-- was already documented among certain bishops and priests as widely dispersed as Turin, in Italy, and South Carolina, in the United States. The cultic acts of satanic pedophilia are considered by professionals to be the culmination of the Fallen Archangel's rites."..

These allegations have largely gone unnoticed, possibly because Martin was so crafty in his descriptions that he might even have been referring to the coronation of Pope Paul VI. But he revealed much more about this alleged ritual in one of his last works, Windswept House: A Vatican Novel (1996).

A Belgian Jesuit priest named Father Rene Tibo predicted the pope's resignation would happen in April of 2012, however, even though he didn't announce his resignation then, he decided to step down at the end of March 2012 after his trip to Mexico according to the New York Times.

According to the Bible, the false prophet will be able to call fire down from the Heavens (SEE PIC LINKED. And according to prophet Daniel, the belief system of the false prophet will honor a strange alien god. Daniel 11:38 "god of forces, and a god his father knew not, shall he honor, "

According to Wiki:

He has affirmed church teaching on homosexuality, though he teaches the importance of respecting individuals who are gay. He strongly opposed legislation introduced in 2010 by the Argentine Government to allow same-sex marriage. In a letter to the monasteries of Buenos Aires, he wrote: "Let's not be naive, we're not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God. We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God." He has also insisted that adoption by gays and lesbians is a form of discrimination against children. This position received a rebuke from Argentine president Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, who said the church's tone was reminiscent of "medieval times and the Inquisition".

Asking for the people to pray for blessings on him is remarkably humble. I'll never agree with many of his views, but even in 15 minutes it's clear he's a better person than Ratzinger. I hope he is a man who tries to live like his Jesus.

South America will be the focal point of the upcoming water wars, with the Bush Crime Family buying up most of Paraquay.

Since Pope Francis is a champion of the poor,, this will be most interesting, to say the least. China has their eyes on South America as well and is buying up what they can.

I think pope Francis is a good choice ofr both spiritual and political reasons.

He opposed liberation theology, which is a specifically Jesuit doctrine geared towards the suffering of the poor. That's exceedingly odd - it suggests that he's more conservative than your typical Jesuit, and that he may also favor capitalism / big business / the banks, et cetera.

Petrus = Rock or Stone, Romanus = Rome, and he came to us on the verge of spring.

So St. Malachy was hinting that the new pope is going to be like Vivien Leigh in THE ROMAN SPRING OF MRS. STONE.

I wonder who they'll get to play the Warren Beatty part.

R147, part of the proccess is that when the Pope is elected, before it's anounced publicly with the smoke, he's asked if he will accept being Pope. If he doesn't accept then no smoke and we never know about it. From what I know of the elction process is that there are 3-6 guys that are voted on from the first. It's not like they walk in there not knowing who has a good chance of becoming Pope.

When he said he was concerned with wealth, I think that means he is concerned ion getting more wealth and having Opus Dei taking a larger role. Don't believe these ostentatiously "humble" types.

It's not necessarily the name that matters, R204. It's either the associations with the names, or with other parts of the statements. For example, Pope Innocent XIII supposedly fulfilled the prophecy because he came from a family which had produced many popes already - he fulfilled the "de bona religione" line of the prophecy, which was associated with the 'holiness' of his bloodline.

They can be a stretch sometimes, but this one is actually much less of a stretch than many previous ones.

Wikipedia is already updated with a different interpretation than the 'Argentina' one I've seen. 'George' ('Jorge') means 'earthworker', and stones ('Petrus') and earth are related in antiquated iconography. His first language was also a Romance language, ultimately derived from Latin, the language of Rome ('Petrus Romanus').

Yes, this sounds EXCELLENT:

The world of the Jesuits comes from a naturalistic, scientific point of view. They're not looking at this scripturally, they seem to have the same worldview of people like Richard Dawkins.

They assume evolution, coming from the principle of mediocrity which is an extrapolation from the Copernican principle that proved the sun is in the middle of the solar system so the earth is just one of many planets implying that the earth is nothing special.

[quote] Rodman, via the Guardian, said that Pope John Paul II was his favorite pontiff. “He was cool as hell. He pretty much was like a pimp. Sitting up there … speaking like 20,000 different languages … He was great for the world.”

I loathed JPII, but people who glorify verminous pimps are even worse. Crawl away, Worm.

On same-sex marriage: The new pope has called gay marraige “a scheme to destroy God’s plan” and “a real and dire anthropological throwback.” In 2010, he was a vocal opponent of the Argentinian government’s proposed legislation to legalize same-sex marriage.

On homosexuality: Bergoglio is reportedly “unwaveringly orthodox” on such moral issues.

On abortion: He has rallied his clergy against the “culture of death” that is the pro-abortion movement.

On contraceptives: The new pope strongly opposed Argentinian President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner‘s efforts to distribute free contraceptives, likely seeing it as part of the aforementioned “culture of death.”

On same-sex adoption: Bergoglio has called it a form of discrimination against children.

The poor gay priest on MSNBC right now... He's practically creaming over this. Haydu is his last name, I think.

They have this other priest by the name of Bartulak (?), who also provides commentary. He was once a baseball coach... What's his story? If he's gay, he's extremely masculine.

DL, I gather from your comments there are a couple of things you don't know about Jorge. For example, you probably didn't know that Jorge was the only contestant in papal pageant history to sweep every category except congeniality. Or that when he walked down the runway in his swimsuit, five contestants quit on the spot. Or that when he emerged from the isolation booth to answer the question, "What would you do to prevent war?" he spoke so eloquently of patriotism, battlefields and diamond tiaras, grown cardinals wept. He didn't twirl just a baton, that baton was on fire. And when he threw that baton into the air, it flew higher, further, faster than any baton has ever flown before, hitting a transformer and showering the darkened conclave room with sparks! And when it finally did come down, DL, Jorge caught that baton, dozens of cardinals jumped to their feet for sixteen and one-half minutes of uninterrupted thunderous ovation, as flames illuminated his tear-stained face! And that, DL - just so you will know - and your children will someday know - is the night the white smoke went up the Vatican chimney!
