POPE BENEDICT XVI CALLS IT QUITS!!!



Important news for non-practicing Catholics in Kansas City and all over the world . . .

Pope Benedict XVI Says He Will Retire

The last pope to resign was Gregory XII in 1415. He did so to end a civil war within the church in which more than one man claimed to be pope.

"After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths due to an advanced age are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry," he told the cardinals.

For the most part, this was the Pope that Americans didn't really like . . . And his resignation puts any hope that Bishop Finn will meet with discipline for a misdemeanor conviction in Jackson County on the back burner.

Meanwhile, more than 110k petitioners are asking for Kansas City's Bishop Finn to step down.

This one and the last one were terrible but they put so many neo-Nazis on the College of Cardinals that the next on will probably be worse.

The Pope and the ENTIRE "College of Cardinals" are a bunch of (literally) self-appointed, out-of-touch, self-righteous ASS CLOWNS.

Well past time that everyone who (like me) was raised Catholic gave them their walking papers.

STOP GIVING THE CHURCH MONEY.

ALSO IN TODAY'S CHURCH NEWS said...

CHURCH USED CEMETERY MONEY TO PAY SEX ABUSE SETTLEMENT

"Pressed to come up with hundreds of millions of dollars to settle clergy sex abuse lawsuits, Cardinal Roger M. Mahony turned to one group of Catholics whose faith could not be shaken: the dead," the Los Angeles Times reports.

"Under his leadership in 2007, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles quietly appropriated $115 million from a cemetery maintenance fund and used it to help pay a landmark settlement with molestation victims."

"The church did not inform relatives of the deceased that it had taken the money, which amounted to 88% of the fund. Families of those buried in church-owned cemeteries and interred in its mausoleums have contributed to a dedicated account for the perpetual care of graves, crypts and grounds since the 1890s."

... what craven creeps these guys are

Maybe it's a new policy?
Take care of the living, the dead can wait?

Since he was the 'keeper of the faith', what's going to happen to all his 'pedo-files' that he's collected and hidden all these years in the bowels of the Vatican?

Bet priests all over the world are suffering a bad case of acid indigestion right now!

Well, in their defense, the Church has always protected its own these many centuries. Convenient that Benedict is too feeble to do anything about it! I've always been disturbed that he's been a perennial Nazi since his boyhood days.

And I'm not all that impressed with his gentle apologists in cleric collars who are trying to put a good face on the Papacy these days on network news.

I think the laity has their number.

Oh sure, that's just what the world needs, a NIGGER Pope. Haven't we seen enough of how they fuck up everything? Look at the horrible job as Mayor (New Orleans, Detroit, Cleveland, Kansas City, Atlanta, etc), not to mention the ruin wrought on this country by Skippy in the White House, with the help of that wonderful Attorney General and others. Is humanity that fucking slow to catch on???

most comments are really nasty and reveal more about the author's than they probably intend.

Hey, Anon: 12:18

Go fuck yourself you self-righteous pain in the ass. If you don't like the comments, then get the fuck off of this blog.

We've told you before TKC.

The people who are reconsidering their donations to the Church are hurting the institutions substantially. The key to protest is always the purse strings.

The funny thing is that faithful Catholics, including the Holy Father, still pray for all of you even with your terrible words. Come back to the Church. You are loved by the Lord.

I bet 12:18 is Byron.

The next Pope will be black and it will be Obama.
