Delusions and Wishful Thinking: Pope Not InFALLible

So I guess the pope is not infallible. Since he fell. Get it? in-fall-ibility? LOL!
Pope Benedict XVI quipped to well-wishers: “My guardian angel didn’t prevent my mishap, certainly on orders from on high. Perhaps the Lord wanted to teach me more patience and humility to give me more time for prayer and meditation,” said the unholy father, who is expected to make a full recovery from his injury.

pope ratzyWhat has the pope been doing instead of praying to baby jesus that he needed to be punished in this manner? Too much time playing on his Wii? Too much time surfing for boy porn on the interwebs?

Not to mention, believing in fairy godmothers or guardian angels is wishful thinking. And delusional. But since so many sheeple believe it I guess it's ok, right? No? No. I didn't think so either.

Maybe, just maybe, he fell because he's old and frail, clumsy or drunk on sacramental wine. Sometimes bad things happen to good bad people.

(please thank Jenny, my good friend, for giving me all kinds of insight on this story.)

    It's just God's way of saying, "You're an interim Party hack."

  2. Slightly off-topic, but I never have understood the whole Pope thing. Basically Catholics are worshiping a live person.

    Popes are humans and fallible.

    Peter denied Christ three times in ONE night, in fear of his own life. Yet, the Catholics adopted him as their first Pope. That makes no sense.

  3. I agree, the pope thing doesn't really make any sense. Don't worship anyone but god, but here's a human to lead you. And then people worship him.
    Then again, on a tangent, people seem to worship their precious crosses, too. So go figure.
