Well, i'm sure some of you heard the news out of the Vatican.

That the pope is going to retire.

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/12/world/europ...

Most people assumed he was going to be a caretaker pope from the beginning, considering his age at the time he was made pope. I think he has lasted longer than what was originally anticipated. So, it is safe to estimate that he now he has been encouraged to retire from his post.

It is said that he has been the only pope in history to do so.

You really are just flat out stupid!

The article plainly states that he's the first Pope to resign in 6 centuries, yet you come up with another ignorant statement! Shut your ignorant mouth moron!

Oh and another thing jackass, someone else already posted this topic! Way to show your ignorance Jose!

If you read any news articles you will discover the last pope to resign was over 600 years ago.

Correct. Thank you.

I happened to hear this on a news radio program that i regularly listen too on my way to work. It was a casual mention. The news happened to be quite fluid at the time.

600 years?. Well, none of us or anyone we ever knew were alive 600 years ago. This is a CLEAR break in procedure. It doesn't happen every day. So, technically it IS the first time for everyone in the present day world.

What's crystal clear is that you're a moron that continually makes ignorant statements, no break in procedure there!

Remember.....

You have to keep this standard for yourself every time you pull out allegations from your azz.

It is a two way street.

What standard Jose, the standard of not being a moron?

LOL! You linked an article and then made a statement that was untrue and opposite of what the article CLEARLY STATED!

IT'S IGNORANT STATEMENT AFTER IGNORANT STATEMENT WITH YOU!

Do yourself a favor and buy yourself a THINKING CAP, maybe you'll learn to close your mouth a little more often and save yourself from public displays of daily self humiliation!

If I'm honest I really don't care about him retiring. Would be great not to have a successor - but that will never happen as long as this world remains the power hungry world it is. So power hungry that people try to take the seat of Christ.

So many people being like the Israelites who wanted the golden calf.

The WTS is no different.

It's a whole new concept to people when we claim we look to Jesus - no pope, no prophet such as Joseph Smith etc... or an organisation such as the WTS.
