the pope croaked

I figured that I ought to mention the story, since blogs are supposed to stay on top of the news and all. I don't want to shirk my journalistic duties, and I am sure that you heard it here first.


lmao.... but not really funny.............

I hear the next one may be Latino, if only because Latinos got more Catholics than any other ethnic group in the world (look at a religious geography map of the world sometime; from Mexico to the Southern tip of Argentina is nothing but Catholic). Also, the Latino guy they're mentioning apparently convinced a really bad criminal of some kind to repent or something, so that's worth some consideration.

Of course that also means that the rest of us Jammie-wearing folk have to fact-check this post...

I don't doubt that there are more Catholics in SA, but remember that the biggest voting bloc of cardinals is still Italian.

I know you don't dig the Pope because of his failings pertaining to the sex abuse scandals. And I agree he must have had SOME freaking inkling of what was going on. He WAS exalted as a brilliant man.

However, I can not overlook his ballsy approach to the Soviets re: going back to Poland and giving them a virtual "FUCK YOU". The fall of the Iron Curtain probably would have happened without him, but I believe my man Ronaldus Magnus thought the Pope was a bro'.

He probably gave Ronnie and Maggie a "wink wink" when it came to talks about strategic arms build ups. As a pious man, he had to, of course, toe the line of "military buildup is BAD juju." But a man with his 'nads knew differently. And it worked out well.

Now if we can just get Dubya to stop spewwin the shizzle of Islam being a religion of peace, we can get on with ruling the freakin world, damnit.

Could it be that the bashing of preists as pediphiles and the bashing of fathers as Deadbeats are done by the same propaganda machine? Anyone want to bet on how NAWL and NOW stand on this?

The pope what????? When?

Damn, you'd think there'd be something on the news.

"Damn, you'd think there'd be something on the news."

No kidding. I sent a nice note to FNC letting them know if they continued to be the "All death -- all the time" channel, I would be turning the TV OFF and the blogosphere ON -- permanently.
