THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOMOPHOBE DEPT.
PEN AND STINK DEPT.
When asked by a reporter recently what he’d do if he found out a priest was gay, Pope Francisanswered, “Who am I to judge?” The Pontiff’s refreshing non-condemning tone was welcomed by many and may have set the stage for the Holy Father to do further outreach to the gay community.
ANY WHICH WAY BUT LUCIFER DEPT.
WE THE PAPAL DEPT.
HOLY SEEING IS BELIEVING DEPT.
Pope Benedict XVI made his retirement official yesterday with a farewell address to the faithful at St. Peter’s Square — but with a crowd of thousands in attendance, there was much more to be heard than Benedict’s monotone Latinate mumbling!
As anyone who has ever left a job will tell you, there are always lots of loose ends to be tied up before walking out the door. And, good Lord, it’s no different with Pope Benedict XVI, who will resign his papacy on Thursday.
It's been reported that Pope Benedict XVI will be resigning from his post due to "advanced age". We can't help but wonder if the Pontiff's been feeling pressure to step down ever since we named him as one of 2010's 20 dumbest people of the year.
Today, Pope Benedict XVI announced that he will be stepping down on February 28th. That means that after only 8 years in office, the job is open once more! (And in this economy, any job opening is something to get excited about) Still, we have to wonder if any of the candidates who were passed over the last time will be reconsidered for the chance to wear the giant pointy hat.
