    A crazy religion with over one billion followers. Whether we like it or not, the Pope does have an enormous influence in the world, especially in Africa and South America.

    Bishop diddles young boys, everybody is rightly disgusted.

    105 year old zen master diddles young women, I wanna know how he did it.

    This is significant news to me because it means that if I go back to a Bucca di Beppo anytime soon, the Pope Table will have a different Pope statue.

    Support for my all-pepperjack-cheese food bank charity drive has been lukewarm at best.

    Unlike the pope, he is sorely missed by me.

    Everyone go watch the documentary Mea Maxima Culpa for more insight into why Ratzinger is a detestable human being.

    I'm not Catholic, so this affects me not at all, but if I were the Catholic church I'd aim for a new pope with a bit more PR savy. Pope John Paul II was like a lovable old man, so he could come off well even when he was condemning the gays or dealing with the abuse scandals, etc, etc. But this new pope that just resigned always came off like a James Bond villain to me. He didn't really have a way with words at all and always looked a bit sinister.

    If the Catholic church wants to put their past behind them and move into the 21st century I think they are going to have to start thinking about the pope as a Public Relations guru as much as a theologian. They need a pope with a bit of charisma.


    But, like I said, I'm not Catholic so I have no idea why I care.
