    Pope sells off assets of Catholic Church and donates to Planned Parenthood.

    Pope expels Cardinal Bernard Francis Law and Cardinal George Pell from the Vatican to face justice in their respective home countries.

    Pope turns himself over to authorities in pretty much every country in the world for his role in aiding and abetting in the rape and murder of children under the care of the Catholic Church.

      I noted the Queen gave a shout out to Mother Teresa in her Queen’s Message this year, perpetuating the myth that the woman was a saint. I was irritated, to say the least.

      I mean, seriously, if only the pope had thought to do this last Christmas our troubles would be over.

    I think this happens every year, doesn’t it?

    Always living down to expectations. It does appear Netanyahu is just a bit upset with the Obama administration over the UN business. And while they and all the news media run around in circles wondering why and how could it be. Please give us a break. Is the Memory of Netanyahu now even shorter than the republican memory.

    He also complained about the commercialization of Christmas. I will never understand why people don’t just point and laugh each time this stupid asshole opens his stupid mouth.

      Most of us do. It really shows the contempt that he has for his witless sheep. The fact that he can put his stupidity and his lack of influence with the Almighty on the line, and Catholics won’t notice when he fails so completely.

    I was at the Vatican today, one of the 40k. It was a pathetic display of devotion.

    Everything else was closed in Rome.

    Oh well, in Naples tonight and headed to Herculaneum and Pompeii in the morning. Then to Florence and Venice.

    Naples is gross and scary. And the Catholicsim makes it worse.

      Ah, I remember a weekend in Venice many years ago. Actually, I only remember part of it. I do believe you are missing the tourist season.

      It’s hard to do justice to Pompeii alone in one day! But I hope you enjoy them both anyway.

    C’mon folks, it’s not like prayer is a science experiment with predictive value. That only works with stuff that’s real.

    What Popular Francis said is:
    gods are not going to rain peace down on us, forget that, we have to do it ourselves… so try and be nice to each other.
    I do love my silk slippers… wonder if I get a new pair for xmas?

    someone turn that mic off!

    This probably beats a papal call for another Crusade?

    So long as the Pope has a job, there will not be peace on earth.

    You atheists won’t be feeling so smug and clever tomorrow when all war, strife and injustice comes to an end.

    To paraphrase The Life of Brian;

    What has the Roman Catholic Church ever done for us?
    Brought peace?

    On Christmas, it’s 50/50 odds on whether my family will get into a major fight or remain in cease-fire mode. On other non-Christmas days, except that buffet day in late November, the odds are only 15-20% there’ll be fisticuffs. I’ve always thought that Xmas brouhahas were a Catholic tradition. This Pope is Catholic, right?

    LOL, almost makes me believe there’s a supposed ‘god’, not!

    This just in: Pope reverses his Christmas plea for universal peace, calls on Christians to fight for the one true faith.

    I imagine it’s probably a job requirement, a clause in his Pope contract: “By initialing this clause, you hereby agree that you will issue a call for world peace at least once a year, preferably at Christmas”. We all have tedious chores we must do in our jobs, like cleaning out the moldy items in the employee fridge, or gently informing a co-worker that he needs more deodorant. Or like the poor editor at Huffpo, whose contract no doubt specifies a once-a-year quotation from the Pope about world peace. I am so glad I am retired.
