I SURE HOPE THE NEW POPE IS DOPE. #DopePope
So of COURSE they chose the most Italian country outside of Italy. It’s barely a stretch.
also, his parents were italian. this changes everything and nothing at the same time.
Nora. if you, thought Raymond`s st0ry is really great… I just bought a gorgeous Chrysler sincee geting a check for $4233 this last four weeks and more than ten/k last month. this is really the coolest job I’ve had. I started this nine months/ago and straight away started to bring home more than $75… per/hr. I use this great link……. http://zapit.nu/316
Yeah Nora!! You can lose ten pounds easy too through e/e/a.,aa!!!
If they had these dudes at church every Sunday, I wouldn’t have stopped going.
This video is real? Also this is raw video but has a score?
The AP is super weird, you guys. Also, their push alerts are the weirdest. I’m only subscribed to high tier breaking news, and last week I got notices about North Korea and Justin Beiber in less than two minutes’ time.
Well, I guess my candidate is out of the running
This is going to seriously complicate my Bing searches to figure out if the Smoking Popes are playing #sxsw this year.
That product placement was very awkwardly worked into your comment.
Even though Argentina is basically the whitest possible Latin American country, it’s still encouraging that they didn’t just go straight for the French Canadian or something. It’s been years since I even bothered to go to church, but I do still get emotionally invested in the stupid bullshit the church does, so I’m really interested to see how having a (potentially) more representative pope will affect the church as a whole.
I guess I don’t know what, “Even though Argentina is basically the whitest possible Latin American country,” even means? Am I the only one?
I actually had the thought “I wonder if this new pope will be homophobic and misogynistic!” and then I laughed and laughed and laughed because what a stupid thought of course he will be!
I’m just holding out for the war between the Bishops and the Nuns because I will stand by the Nuns and throw so many charity canned goods at those Bishops. I’m going to fashion some sort of canned goods catapult.
I would see this movie.
I would participate in it.
For a $10,000 investment, you can have a role in the movie as a bishop in his robes standing over a subway grate as the steam comes up and exposes your boxers with red hearts on them.
I’m going to donate tampons. Can you even imagine how pissed those bishops would be when a box of tampons knocks off their fancy hats?? So pissed. This image will help me sleep at night.
This is brilliant, and I love you all.
The climactic battle scene will be between an army of Nuns and Nun supporters hurling canned goods, tampons, condoms, AIDS tests, and syringes full of Depo Provera and an army of Bishops and Bishop supporters holding shields with pictures of aborted fetuses on them.
I will donate extra to keep Piz out of the mix.
flanny, I’m pretty sure tampons are the reason why we haven’t had a female pope yet. I wish the Pope Joan legend were true though.
It’s like the Vatican is covered in gold, frescoes, and jewels (and a papal carwash), but they can’t have a female pope because the butler doesn’t want to go out of his to the Quik-E-Vat to pick up a box of Tampax. Tampons be mad expensive.
Can we talk about how kickass nuns are? They are kickass. The most kickass. I think that’s what the bishops are so afraid of.
Also it’s super shady that the new pope deleted the old pope’s tweets. If you go to @pontifex there is only 1 tweet!
“Still trying to figure this twitter thing out.”
“Let’s not be naive, we’re not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God. We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God.”
That’s the new pope talking about molesting children, haha, jk, he said that about same sex marriage.
I mean, some queers do worship Satan:
If you were hoping for a pope that’s “good on gays” you should consider how long it took to get a pope that was “good on heliocentrism”
For an institution that basically serves as a depository for gay Catholic boys, the priesthood sure is fucked up in the head about homosexuality! Maybe if they weren’t so fucked up in the head about it, then molestation and other fucked up in the head business wouldn’t be such an issue!
Oh you’re a married dude and want to be a priest and still sleep with your wife and not all the little boys? Tough luck.
“Father of Lies, abomination before the Lord, yadda, yadda – now where did those shirtless acrobats go?”
I thought for sure he’d go on the balcony and sing “don’t cry for me Argentina”.
and they would paint the Vatican red so it would be the Vaticana Rosada
Well now that I know that could have happened and didn’t this is terrible. Worst. Pope. Ever.
all i saw is that DENNIS RODMAN, who is legit my spirit guide, was at the vatican this morning flashing DEVIL HORNS and now in my mind he is the pope and i don’t give any fucks about who else they might “claim” to be the pope, POPE RODMAN FOREVERRRRRR.
I love that Dennis Rodman is basically on an international freakout tour. He’s like the Carmen San Diego of being a very crazy person!
gaaaahhh, i am seriously not joking when i say that dennis rodman is my spirit guide! like, as a weird kid growing up in the mid-90s who had gender issues, i think he was the first person i saw in the super straight, super male world who just totally let himself be a weirdo, and was super powerful and had so much swagger while doing so. it made a deep impression on me! i love him so, so, so, so, so very much!
I just want to know who is funding Rodman. Because I know he doesn’t have any money anymore…
I’m struggling to see what this all has to do with Courtney Stodden.
He looks like Junior Soprano
because he is italian!
There’s a deleted scene in Schumacher’s “Batman & Robin” where Batman, Robin, and Alicia Silverstone all do acrobatic stuff just like in this video for the pope of Gotham City. Really weird scene that got cut because there was NEVER a pope in the comics.
I was in Chile when JP2 died and everyone was flipping their shit at the possibility of this guy being pope because this is the one time that Chile will admit it’s practically Argentina. We could have saved a lot of time, is what I’m saying. But then we would have missed out on all the Darth Pope/nazi pope jokes, so in the end I guess it’s a wash.
Oh we can still make nazi-pope jokes. A lot of those guys ended up in Argentina (just saying…)
We went from a German who unwillingly took part of nazi stuff to a Argentinian who probably was neighbors with some nazi stuff.
Yes. “neighbors.” Sure.
I call shenanigans. I have it on good authority (A Steve Guttenberg movie) that the nazis went to Brazil.
I personally don’t care, and I don’t get why some people who aren’t religious seem to care so much? I feel the same way about this as I do about people who suddenly love soccer when the World Cup is on. It seems disingenuous.
Seriously. I couldn’t care less what a bunch of weird rich, robe-wearing Italian old dudes are up to. There sure are a lot of fair weather organized religion fans out there.
I think it’s more like the people who see two movies a year who obsess about the Oscars. It’s a spectacle and you get to argue about who wore it better.
How often do you get to see a bunch of guys in red robes and yarmulke/skull caps and armed guards with feathers and stripes? This is the Catholic Oscars!
While I agree it can come off as disingenuous, I think because it is a moment in history and has weight beyond whether or not I believe in it, makes it worthwhile.
I’m just here for the bloopers.
Pope bloopers: Poopers.
Every Pontiff has a Pooper.
I just like to go to my local pizza place, Italian Pizzaria III, and sit around with a bunch of drunk Italians and yell at the tv while eating pizza. I like to do that for the world cup, and I like to do it with the papal conclave.
What is his opinion on robosexual marriage?
It’s an abotination
Does not compute.
The papal conclave is the Teen Choice Awards of global events.
“Raise the firmament, ya’ll.” —new pope
You guys, BIG SCOOP! The pope’s new name supposedly symbolizes “poverty and humility”, which makes me LOLOLOL big time. A dude with a fucking golden throne and enough riches to feed every starving African child for six billion years (it’s science, you can check my math) who insists that he was chosen by God to be God’s representative on earth. “Poverty and humility”. LOLOLOLOL. Fuck this whole circus of garbage monsters.
Now, now, let’s give him the benefit of the doubt until we see what style of custom Prada shoes he selects.
The Devil Wears Prada, doesn’t the Vatican know that much?
I got all excited when they announced he was a Jesuit, but then I realized I had confused Jesuits and Franciscans. It would be awesome to have a Franciscan pope because of the whole vow of poverty stuff. I’m pretty sure a Franciscan pope would be obligated to sell all of the Vatican and live in a hut. I’m pretty sure that’s why there have only been two Franciscan popes and that was over 300 years ago.*
*this knowledge brought to you by 13 years of Catholic school and 25 years of living in a Catholic family.
this comment, this is why i stopped going to church when i was a wee lass. nope.
While watching the livestream of this, I couldn’t help but think that the Church has the same problem as Republicans: all the pomp and circumstance and really extravagant ceremonies isn’t really helping to win over anyone.
As a Catholic, we take what we can get for progress. The pros is that the dude definitely lived a humble life before he was pope, is a Jesuit (thinkers, more progressive), and seems to have a strong interest in social justice. Also he is, at least technically, not a European pope. To wonder if a pope will come out in favor of gay marriage, abortion, or contraception is to wonder if the next pope will not be Catholic. It’s just not going to happen. It’s disappointing every time but not surprising. I hope that this pope concentrates his energies on the poor countries that have no oil (because the USA certainly doesn’t), cleans house of all the corruption (at least sell those apartments next to the bath house), and just in general acts like a man of God and not a fucking prancing gremlin like the last one.
“A fucking prancing gremlin”. Thank you, chriskc80. Thank you!
There was no way a Pope was going to magically be elected that was pro gay marriage and pro contraception and pro abortion and pro all those other things. Just wasn’t going to happen. BUT, he is very passionate about the poor and has dedicated his life to trying to benefit the poor. Seriously, what good cause are any of us passionate about that we’ve worked a fraction as hard for as this guy has worked for the poor? AND he’s totally cool with admonishing the church when they try to regulate peoples’ worship or exploit their followers instead of providing a place of spiritual nourishment. Basically, it could have been worse, and it seems like they actually made a pretty good choice. Also, and I say this as someone who is a very strong supporter of gay marriage, but NOT EVERYTHING NEEDS TO BE CENTERED AROUND GAY MARRIAGE, especially when focusing on a subject like the urban or third world poor. I guess I’ll say that I’m hopeful and you can bite me.
