Popetisapation
« on: March 11, 2013, 08:37:46 PM »
The long period of a popeless world is about over.  I've got my shorts in a wad with excitement.  I hope its not an old white guy like say John McCain.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

*Yawn*  Wake me when it's over - or not. 

On the tele this morning, the local news opened with 2 minutes of non-news from the Vatican, followed by a 15-second story of a local child that was murdered.

Greetings from Germany!
It´s 20.37 p.m. here, first round in Rome is over, black smoke. Now everybody is going to bed there and they meet  again tomorrow morning. My tip is a white guy and italian.

It would be cool to watch how they actually decide.

"Okay, Hermano Jao Marcelo of Brazil won the last round of nekkid rock paper scissors, so he gets to lead the Liberace Twister portion of the conclave. Then we all adjourn to Frere Jean-Jacques cell for a little snack of Twinkies and Night Train. After that we have the Prince Purple Rain dance-till-you-drop event."

But it's probably way boring instead being delightfully gay.
Extraordinary claims of the bible don't even have ordinary evidence.

Kids aren't paying attention most of the time in science classes so it seems silly to get worked up over ID being taught in schools.

They could play Twister for the top spot.

I say lock up the red skirts in the Sistine until the white smoke shows, no matter how long it takes. No breaks, no cots; only Jesus crackers and bad wine served in those thimble-sized plastic cups, and buckets for toilets.  They'd have a new Pope by midnight at the latest.

I was discussing this this morning at work.

The Pope is - supposedly - God's Representative on Earth.  So if the Cardinals are having trouble deciding, to my mind that proves that none of them are getting any divine guidance on the subject.  Which to me is clear proof that their god doesn't exist.  If people were voting for a guy who was going to be my "voice" to my creation for the next few decades, a guy whose words billions would accept as unerrant truth direct from the mind of god......I'd be making DAMN sure that they got the right guy in the job, and whispering "vote Bob" in every Cardinal's ear.

Whisper?  Heck, I'd be SHOUTING it.  Get the wrong guy in this job and millions of people could be getting their salvation wrong.  So any indecision on the Cardinals part either proves there IS no god - or that there is a god, but he just doesn't give a stuff.
Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not incredibly stupid.
Why is it so hard for believers to answer a direct question?

Maybe they're afraid that the whispering comes from the devil ... so god keeps telling them "vote Tilly, vote Tilly!" but they dismiss it ... bunch of frock-wearing weirdos.
