He'd never resign - he's too egotistical. Every pope is.

That's my opinion; obviously you don't like it which has no effect on me. Proof? You mean you don't think they display egotism? Oh, don't even answer. Happy Thanksgiving.

Even if the pope did resign, another will be elected only to continue the corruption. If an honest pope would be elected, someone in the Vatican would make sure that he doesn't wake up in the morning. It's happened before, though denied by the RCC like everything else.

Interesting! Believe it or not, the pope's job right now must be horribly stressful with all that's gone on. I truly hope the stress does not affect his health; no job is worth that.

Each that I've lived through leaves an indelible mark somehow; they manage to get noted for something. I expressed my opinon. Goodbye.

What? You can quit being the voice of god on this earth?

How about resign the entire religion. If you can quit being the voice of god for man, isn't that reason enough to question your faith in god?

Good point. Seems to me there's much twisting and turning within that institution. You did give me more food for thought, thanks. Oh, and I hope you had a nice holiday.

I believe you are refering to Pope John Paul I. He wasn't in the best of health when he was elected. That a man in his late 70's could die in his sleep should not be that big of a surprise to anyone. Conspiracy theories make great novels as Dan Brown can attest other than that they are meaningless.
