It was announced that Pope Benedict XVI will resign on February 28th 2013. This will make him the first Pope to resign since at least 1415. How many other Popes have resigned or stepped down other than Pope Benedict XVI? There have only been a handful, it's called "Papal resignation". We have that list of Popes who have resigned/stepped down here:

They are all a bunch of gay men that needs a boy in their life and I find them to be very sick minded people. I would be ashamed in being a Catholic.

I feel it was a good decision. The man is 85 yrs old. Give it to a younger man with more open-minded goals regarding church policies.
