I was replying to a single comment regarding leadership, just as a bunch of apparently iffy replies got created and removed. Some craziness going on here, best to have Mods review the whole thread.

Critical-thinking people will "give a crap" because, like it or not, he's one of the most powerful and influential leaders on the planet. He is the leader of 1.1 billion Roman Catholics. That's ⅙ of the planet's population. To not "give a crap" about what our major world leaders do is foolhardy, at best.

Whilst not being Catholic, or even religious at all, I would have to say I do give a (small) crap about the new pope.

Why? ..... I find it hard to believe there has been no mention in this thread so far of the Malachy prophecy. There is a slight but tangible link that is worth mentioning.

The Malachy prophecy describes the final pope as "Petrus Romanus" or Peter the Roman.
Now first we look at the Pope's taken name "Francis", inspired by St. Francis of Assisi. And then we look closer at St. Francis and we discover his full name to be Francesco di Pietro di Bernardone (per wikipedia). i.imgur.com...

And the pope himself to have Roman (Italian) ancestry. i.imgur.com...

Someone had removed the reference to 'di Pietro' in Wikipedia by the time I went back to this today for posting. I wonder why.

Anyway, you can Google the Malachy prophecy for yourself, and there above is some fairly tertiary links that point to it, that I don't give a whole lot of credit to. But it is something that I'm surprised wasn't mentioned so far in this thread, so I felt the duty to at least make people aware of it.

Not I, but I will not deny that I am quite fond of the Pope's PartyWagon (aka The Popemobile).







i wonder how catholics would feel if they found out that pope john paul ii was
a willing/witting party in the faking of his own 'assassination' attempt?
The Fatima Hoax and the Staged Shooting of Pope John Paul II.

i know how i feel. it's all theatre.

I wonder the same thing! Who cares! And you're right, many more important things to worry about!

But the whole world has their heads in the sand.

I bet Beyonce will be singing at the Vatican after-party. Kim K and Kanye will be special guests.
While backstage Jay Z and Bill Gates are seen holding hands? Lil-Wayne will be the first to kiss the new Pope. 6 trillion dollars will be awarded to the Vatican by the U.S. for the new Vatican day care center. Alex Jones sneaks in and films a Human Sacrifice using his expired C.I.A. badge. Anderson Cooper will be covering the event LIVE "via Green-Screen." While Arnold Shwarzenegger publicly denounces guns and vows to make only kid friendly movies from now on. And for the Grand Finale, the Pentagon will cut in and announce that Osama Bin Laden isn't really dead! In fact he's been alive and well the whole time, living in The White house disguised as a black man..... And nobody seems to mind.... However Donald Trump challenges the fact that he was really born in Saudi Arabia and demands to see a birth certificate.

And Now... A word from our sponsor.

Well, in answer to your question OP, I care.

I understand that you and other posters aren't fond of the Catholic Church. I'm sorry you feel that way and I hope that upon further reflection you'll be open to reconsidering your opinion. I was under the impression that this thread was about the Pope and his election, but perhaps I misunderstood.

The Church has had, and will continue to have, a huge impact in the lives of hundreds of millions of people. There are more devout Catholics than the population of the United States. The Pope is not a god, but he is a teacher and guide, a shepherd if you will. From the beginning of the Church, Jesus instructed Peter and his successors to be a "good shepherd," to "feed My sheep." That incredible responsibility has now fallen to Pope Francis.

The choice seems to be a good one. He is a humble man with great love for the poor. He lives simply, I'm sure you've heard reports that he was known in Argentina as the "Bishop of the Slums," and that instead of living in the Bishop's residence, he lived in an apartment, cooked his own meals, and took the bus or his bicycle to work.

When he flew to Rome for the Conclave, a number of his supporters raised money to go with him. He told them to give the money to the poor, he could manage by himself. He opposed the government of Argentina for not directing more efforts to the poor of the country and is expected to make the poor and the suffering one of his two priorities. He is also expected to make significant changes to improve the Curia (the administration), an organization which is suffering from the presence of too many individuals who have succumbed to the love of money, homosexual sex, or the desire to throw out the basic teachings the Church is founded on.

I have great hopes for this man and his election has raised my spirits as well as the spirits of hundreds of millions, if not billions, of people around the globe.

Vivat Jesus, Viva il Papa.

How many little boys do you think he'll guide to a sore bottom?

None. There is no indication that he has ever been involved in anything like that, and no reason to believe he'll start now.

It's a little bit like asking a Muslim in Kansas City how many people he's beheaded.

He is there as a spiritual father who will offer to you and me and the whole world guidance. If you try to follow this guidance you will experience a peace like you have never had before. Let go of the secular, physical world for at least once and let the power of God into your body and life. God IS Real and Miracles DO Happen.

Who gives a crap about the new pope

I do. He could make a difference ... in a good way or in a bad way.

My opinion on Pope Francis ... a bit too old for the job but, from the name he has
taken, I think he's probably going to be something GOOD for the church and therefore
for the world.

Not perfect. But good.
And the world needs 'good'.

Don't worry - he'll be dead soon, homophobic, anti-abortionist old dinosaur that he is.

Are you called Tinsel on the free energy forums ?

I laughed so hard reading your first few lines this morning tha I choked on my Cheerios. But then I loved the way you basically described the creation of Christianity. Brilliant. I really think you should have your own blog that sums up current events with this brand of humor and summation.

What really confused me is how the media all flocked to Rome to do their broadcasts from the Vatican. I was thinking....really? Why is the media on this bandwagon? They're liberals and they've been bought out by the NWO. Why do they care so much? They hate religion!

And yet, there they all were, hanging out at the Vatican with their hair and make up folks and their cameramen, spending millions of dollars to bring news of the Pope to the masses.

Interesting indeed.

The Lord gave Moses the Ten Commandments, Cut in Stone, a symbol that God's Law is Firm, the final word that's cut in stone. The Lord left Heaven his home, to come to earth and guide us back to the Father! Of all God's creatures we were the most disorientated. After his mission he left us an ambassador "The Pope" to keep us on track. The Pope is the True link between man and his GOD!

It is funny to see a Organisation that commited Murder extorsion and slavery for Centuries is so loved , Trust me if the Vatican stil had absolute power , even creating a thread like this would most likely mean certain death , because we MAY NOT question them.... Internet would probably have never been available to us at all.

Excuse me !! how can i not question a Organisation that through History had his nose up in Criminal activities.

The Speeches in wich they say they rather want you to suffer and die from a STD instead of using condoms.
How they call Homosexuals a disease and should be Cured by all means WTF!

They gave Refuge to SS officers for pete sakes.

I believe every person has the right to practice their religion , i believe there is a huge difference between religion on a personal level and religion as a organisation.

but as one of the most powerful organisations in the world i think it is sad to see them always pointing fingers towards others.

I appreciate your disgust with the past incidence of the catholic church involving a lot of organized evil. This new pope seems different and I don't think he can be controlled or infiltrated by the evil powers that be. Only will time will tell however. I respect your thoughts regarding the catholic church but the title is not appropriate. Millions of people did care, right or wrong. Insinuating the man is a pedophile as in other comments is not fair since all priests are not like this. Just like all atheists are not self centered and selfish while thinking they know the absolute truth of nature and all existence.

I do.

But that's the beautiful thing about freedom. You are free to insult, degrade, debase.

I am free to ignore your comments, and can continue in my own personal beliefs.
