    Re: Pope resigns

    I'm pretty sure this Pope resigned because his views were turning off not only potentially new followers but current ones. His comments on the child abuse scandal in particular were quite disgusting. Given that he is the first Pope to resign in 600 years, I doubt this is about health. Catholicism is very big on taking your duties to your grave.

    Kind of interesting that someone can resign from their superhuman role as God's representative on earth. So much for the Divine Right of Kings.

    I hope the next Pope is more progressive, or at least capable of smiling once in a while.

    You can't be serious. There is a ton of evidence. Watch the documentary.

    This is true. The facts of the documentary may have nothing to do with his resignation. Although, they do give plenty of reason he should resign, it can't be determined this is the reason. We will probably never know.

    Oh well. Next!

    Re: Pope resigns

    A rather wise decision given the admitted frailties of the man.

    It is sad that the Catholic Church long ago gave up and claim to moral righteousness or good. As such, it has no claim to lead anyone or tell people how to live their lives. It is really sad.

    Neither did I.

    I always thought that once you were the Pope you remained being the Pope until you died.
