Sadly I don't think they'd have Es - on two grounds: she's too sensible, and she's woman.

(There is a third ground, she's probably far too young as most recent Popes have been knocking on in years.)

I think I'd make a jolly good pope.

Now, now we cannot be having Jolly Popes, isn't that one of the things that led to the Reformation. Pope Alexander VI (1492–1503) is said to have had a least 7 illegitimate children.

Hell isn't a lake of fire. It's the absence of God for eternity.

I feel real bad for you and would like to help. It's sad that you don't believe.

The bible is quite clear on what hell is.

I am aware you feel bad for me. I've come across your kind many times before. You simply cannot see how your belief is a terrible thing that stops you living a truly moral life. You can't be truly moral because you are following a set of rules without really understanding what it is all about. You only care about what comes in the next life, so you don't put the effort you should into making this world a good place.

You judge others, and you presume to think you have all the correct answers. You are filled with hate for anything you don't understand or fear and then you hide behind a book written nearly 2000 years ago without even reading it properly.

If you really were like Jesus, you would be spending time with the outcasts of society and helping them just like he did instead of hating them and judging them.

Could have not said it better.

The next Pope will come from Latin America, or America. Probably?


Two of the front runners are from Africa, according to reports I saw, they also said that they thought it unlikely that the next pope would be from America, Ireland or the UK plus other because of the child abuse cases.

There is one from Canada also that is in the running.
Do you think they sit around a room and smoke cigars and wheel and deal like old time politicians in America.

I even found that funny. ;-)

Ask "Dick" Cheney.


On March 24, 2012, Cheney underwent a seven-hour heart transplant procedure at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Virginia, at the age of 71. He had been on a waiting list for more than 20 months before receiving the heart from an anonymous donor.[178][179] Cheney's principal cardiologist, Dr. Jonathan Reiner, advised his patient that "it would not be unreasonable for an otherwise healthy 71-year-old man to expect to live another 10 years" with a transplant, saying in a family-authorized interview that he considered Cheney to be otherwise healthy.

Pope worn a pacemaker for several years, and only three months ago he had an operation to replace the battery inside the implanted device.


Thanks! Will rent the flick, What Dreams May Come.

A creation of Kevin Annett. Legal significance: none.

Sadly true, but its the thought that counts.

The Pope should be held accountable.
