So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


The Pope and TO

I'm not sure which has gotten more hype or which I could care less about. Terrell Owens just burns me up. Ok, I am a Cowboys fan and his little escapade on OUR star started it all for me. I really friggin hate this man. But, now, he claims to have a direct line to God. *rolling my eyes* That is the crowning achievement in his assinine behavior. Yeah, God gave you the go ahead. Right.

And the poor old Pope. I'm Catholic and all, but dude. Come on. Helloooooo!!!?? What is the big deal? Devout Catholics out there ... tell me what I'm missing here. I know there is some history that the leader of the church is supposed to be a descendant of one of the disciples (Peter or Paul?), but if priests can't have kids, then this is a crock of crap. Last I heard, the pope was picked by a bunch of old priests. So, he is just another human being like the rest of us. And, may I be struck by lightning for saying it if it isn't true, but humans are fallible. *gasp* What he says isn't gospel and I refuse to acknowledge that it is. I will listen to him just as I listen to any religious figure - with a little bit of skepticism. I try my best to follow the Bible and lead a Christian life, but I'm human and fail miserably all too often. I just find it really weird that so much emphasis is put on one man. I hope he gets better, but the news stories this morning trying to calm the masses (ha, pun intended, hee hee) not to freak out because the Pope was hospitalized, just threw me for a loop. Who is freaking? Really? Somebody tell me.

So, everyone ... if the Pope croaks, we have TO to take his spot. Since TO has a direct line to God and all. Who's with me? Gees. That is definitely one church I would never go to.

Go Patriots.

    I love Pope J2P2, especially circa 1985. How do you have the unmitigated gall to go to an African country where people are starving and dropping dead in the street -- stand up in front of them and say "DON'T USE BIRTH CONTROL OR YOU'LL GO TO HELL". I love it.

    I recall a stand up comedian remarking why does the Pope have the bulletproof Popemobile. What is he afraid of dying and going to heaven?

    hee hee ... he may have a reason to be scared. God may smack him upside his self-righteous head and tell him that "the church" has totally flubbed up what he had intended. I tend to believe that most of the organized religions have perverted faith to meet their own goals or ideas.

    *shrug* I'm probably going to be struck down for blaspheming.

    I am not Catholic, but due to the comments here, I may play it safe and stand over in the corner away from you'll:-) Seriously...this story has REALLY been overhyped!

    LabKat, I thought you'd be all over this one.

    Uzz, totally overhyped.
