Why bother with 21st-century tech when you lead a 13th-century cult?

And you KNOW the first thing he wanted to tweet was "Deutschland uber alles".

Who cares?
Just because the old boy tweeted a message, is it worth all the publicity?
He's nothing special. All he represents is the romanist cult, he is elected by other misled romanists, and imagines he is God on earth.

Too bad the romanist element wouldn't get with it and leave the cult before it's too late for them.

Thanks!! I simply cannot see why romanism thinks itself to be 'THE true church'.... it has more raw nerve than an abscessed tooth.

The RCC is no different than any other church--they all believe themselves to be the true path to heaven, even if they don't say it outright. And all are just as corrupt and ultimately meaningless.

I don't know how Catholics/Christians can just ignore the stories of Mithras, et al. As for Mary, compare to Isis, Diana, Astarte, et al. How do they justify today's beliefs?

I don't know how any halfway intelligent person could really believe there's a "one, true religion" and that it's the RCC. That's not only nonsensical, but STUPID. It's only a claim that church makes, nothing more.

Good post, and you're right about all the useless publicity. That's as important as telling us what brand of toilet paper he uses (if he uses any at all, that is).

I "wuv" the good men here. But I only LOVE my darling husband and of course my son.

Okay, my male cat also (we inherited my son's 2 cats as his wife is highly allergic to them, one male cat, one female). We got the cats at the right time, as we'd been deeply mourning our Golden Retriever that we'd had to euthanize due to cancer :(
