KANSAS CITY CATHOLICS CONSIDER THE LEGACY OF POPE BENEDICT XVI



On the occasion of the Pope hanging up his pointy Pope Hat, the (false) dichotomy is pretty easy to identify in this situation and I'm really just posting these links because the image of Jordan Carver praying makes me feel strange in a good way.

Anyhoo . . .

In Kansas City the discussion of the Pope's resignation basically falls into two camps: Those who think he's ducking the sex abuse hot mess and those who believe he's setting an excellent example in terms of humility and grace in the face of failing health."

Personally, TKC is a proponent of ancient conspiracy theory which claims the resignation was forced in order to make way for the next Pope who will be so incompetent that he'll be the last Pope. Accordingly, I've been waiting by my phone in my tin-foil Pope Hat (Mitre) expecting to answer the important call and serve Holy Mother Church at any moment.

Thy will be done.

Catholic church is a joke and the members who week in and week out keep giving money to the church are even a bigger joke.

Papal,
Papal who need papal
Are the luckiest papal in the world
Were children needing other children
And yet letting our grown-up pride
Hide all the need inside
Acting more like children than children

Remember the good old days when the young boys at the deaf orphanage knew when to keep their mouths shut? Well, except when you told them to swallow! Or even the better old days when you hunted down all those jews hiding in attics? Always had a soft spot in your heart for the furnances'...

The Great Catholic Cover-Up:
The pope's entire career has the stench of evil about it.

check out the article about how this ass-wipe of a human being actually threatened ex-communication to anyone in the Church who told police about pedophilia:

The catholic Church is nothing more than an ages-old cult. It's mumbo jumbo along the lines of magic and witchcraft, nothing more. Here, sprinkle a little holy water and give me a check...Say three hail marys and give me a check....Wear this talisman and give me a check. It's always the same...give them a check. Fuck catholics.

Haw are the local cemetery funds? Have they been molested just like the ones in L.A.?

Cardinal Mahony used cemetery money to pay sex abuse settlement
The Archdiocese of L.A. took $115 million from its cemeteries' maintenance fund in 2007, nearly depleting it. The move seems legal, but it was not announced, and relatives of the dead were not told.
