Several centuries later....Pope to Apologise!! by bIG bLOGGER on 25 April 2010 2:26pm
 
Here's an intelligent topic for debate!!

Pope Benedict has been driven into a corner,realises the game is up,and for damage-limitation purposes presumably has decided the only thing to do is to [Shock,Horror!!..]--APOLOGISE!!!

Well,The Pope IS a CATHOLIC,isn't HE??
....and they DO go regularly to CONFESSION,no,huh??

So,the Pope Benedict will shortly publicly apologise for sundry sins of His Organisation and Its employees,including: (Fill in your own demands..........)

1. 200 years of child abuse scandals,which were quietly covered up by Him.
2. Sending forth the Spanish Armada
3. Initiating the Spanish Inquisition,including the purges of the Cathars and Albigenses
4. Persecution of Protestant sects,including Waldensians and Huguenots
5. The Crusades
6. Maintaining an archaic stance on,and being anti- Birth Control
7. Refusing to ordain women as priests
8. Assisting Nazi war criminals to escape to South America (1944-48)
9. Moving paedophile priests around from parish to parish,and not publishing their names
10.Lending support to the Croatian Ustashe [during WWII) in the killing of Muslims
11. Pope Pius XII's (Pacelli)indifference towards the deportation of European Jews to concentration camps,fearing that any outright condemnation might have a negative outcome for Catholics in Nazi-Germany and elsewhere.
12.Driving around in a gas-guzzling Popemobile,thinking he is Elvis Presley
13.Wearing a red 'Saturno' hat,which would only look good on a Mexican senorita
14.Not allowing Catholic priests to get married
15.Manifesting a remarkable lack of Transparency,and displaying a signal Hypocrisy,by failing to practice what His Church preaches.

-----AMEN-----

It has been rumoured--surprisingly,in the Foreign Office--that,to go some way to make amends,Pope Benedict--during his planned State Visit to Britain in September--could bless the opening of an Abortion Clinic in Kensington,and might also inaugurate the building of a new condom factory in West Croydon,Surrey.

Intelligent topic for debate bIG ?
You seem to be enjoying and continuing the mocking tone of the leaked Foreign Office memo about the Pope's visit to Britain.

The archaic stance on birth control and refusing to ordain women. Ordain us or stop dressing like us, Papa Nazi!

Edit. I'll pass.
 
Re: Several centuries later....Pope to Apologise!! by Spursfan on 26 April 2010 7:15am
 
Yes - those are two good reasons he should be apologising!!

Sooo, to keep it as b-b started:

6. Being Anti-birth Control
7. Refusing to ordain women

Any more?!!

8. Do I not remember something about the Pope at the time of WWII ignoring the holocaust???

From someone who was baptized Catholic and is no longer Catholic,

9. Let the legal system go after all pedophile priests, that means stop moving them around from parish to parish and make their names public!

10. BIRTH CONTROL< DIVORCE< WOMEN PRIESTS< MARRIED PRIESTS. Just call yourself Episcopal and have done with it.

btw, big deal about the apology, its "too little too late" in my opinion.

bIG, thanks for having the b..ls to bring this up. Political correctness about this stuff boils my you know what. So well done bIG!
