Sex Lives of the Popes … by Nigel Cawthorne … first published in Great Britain in 1996.‘An irreverent expose’—The Sunday Times…………
Clement VI began a period of unbridled luxury. He bought in forty different types of gold cloth from Syria, silk from Tuscany and fine linen from Rheims, Paris and Flanders. Fur was considered a luxury and was restricted to knights, pages, squires, gentlemen of the bedchamber and ladies of the court. Nevertheless Clement VI used up 1080 ermine pelts – 68 for a hood, 430 for a cape, 310 for a mantle, 150 more for two more hoods, 64 for yet another hood, 30 for a hat, 80 for a large hood and 88 for birettas or papal capes.
An eyewitness account of a reception given by Cardinal Annibale for Clement VI on the outskirts of Avignon in 1343 gives some idea of the scale of the entertainment.
The pope was led into a room hung from floor to ceiling with tapestries of great riches. The ground was covered with a velvet carpet. The state bed was hung with the finest crimson velvet, lined with white ermine, and covered with cloths of gold and silk. Four knights and twelve squires of the pope’s house-hold waited at table; the knights received from the host a rich belt of silver and a purse worth 25 gold florins; and the squires, a belt and purse to the value of 122 florins. Fifty squires from Cardinal Annibale’s suite assisted the papal knights and squires. The meal consisted of nine courses, each having three dishes, that is a total of twenty-seven dishes. We saw brought in, among other things, a sort of castle containing a huge stag, a boar, kids, hares and rabbits. At the end of the fourth course, the cardinal presented the pope with a white charger, worth 400 florins, and two rings, valued at 150 florins, one set with an enormous sapphire and the other with an equally enormous topaz; and last of all, a nappo worth 100 florins. Each of the sixteen cardinals received a ring set with fine stones, and so did the twenty prelates and noble laymen. The twelve young clerks of the papal household were each given a belt and a purse worth 25 gold florins; and the twenty-four sergeants at arms, a belt worth three florins. After the fifth course, they brought in a fountain surrounded by a tree and a pillar, flowing with five kinds of wine. The margins of the fountain were decked with peacocks, pheasants, partridges, cranes and other birds. In the interval between the seventh and eighth courses, there was a tournament, which took place in the banqueting hall itself. A concert brought the main part of the feast to a close. At dessert, two trees were brought in; one seemed made of silver, and bore apples, pears, figs, peaches and grapes of gold; the other was laurel, and was decorated with crystallized fruits of many colours.
The wines came from Provence, La Rochelle, Beaune, St Poucain and the Rhine. After dessert, the master cook danced, together with his thirty assistants. When the pope had retired to his apartments, wines and spices were set before us.

There are some very straightforward scripture passages that vindicate the Catholic faith, but you reject it. I don't understand why you believe you can reject whatever you want. I think it's been clear that Catholics on here demonstrated how people in the earliest times of Christianity believed as we do today......1900 yrs later.

Somehow I don't believe you, Liam. You wouldn't be disgusted. You'd have whatever feeling about it that the pope told you to have.

Even as priests were NOT looking out for the health of the children in the parish ... by covering up for child rapists. They "care" so much for the 'health' of non-Catholics ... and then they rape little boys.

Call me a liar all you want, Liam.

Just don't call Jesus Christ a liar - for in doing so, you blaspheme the Holy Spirit and THAT is the unforgivable sin.

When the pope goes against the very words of Christ and The Father, he has set himself up as a liar, Liam.
Why do you think the Catholic Church fought so hard to keep the Word of God from the people? Because they did not want to be exposed as they now have been.

Hebrews 10:
26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, 27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. 28 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know him who said,“It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” and again,“The Lord will judge his people.” 31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

How would people obtain that sort of info? Especially during a time period when nobody had any idea what the guy down the road was doing? Her reply was expected.

She will mock us for believing in a God that's not true while at the same time, she believes these stories that aren't true. Both you two will latch on to anything if it smears the Catholic Church.

And no, it doesn't affect me or the truth of the Catholic faith if our Bishop sinned. Its unfortunate though, I would hate to be in their shoes as a stand before God.

Who do you think you are fooling???
Martin Luther was not a bit different than the popes. He was every bit as vile in his lust to kill the Jews and the other peasants who were starving to death, while he gorged his over-stuffed belly on the best of foods and indulged his greedy self in other comforts. He had jowls on him compared to a well-fed pig.
Martin Luther simply came to the fore shortly before the Christian religion was so split into factions with the factions killing each other that the government had to put an end to killing over religion.
Servants of a god??? YEAH RIGHT!!!
So what government do you suppose will put an end to all the religous killing going on currently?

Would that be the "god" that serves Catholics as his chosen few ... or Protestants as his chosen few?
It sure as the "devil" would not be the same "god" that used to love only the Jews as his chosen few.

It is puzzling to me why the Pope continues making vague pronouncements that could be read in a liberal or conservative fashion. The pronouncement says what you want it to say..
The Vatican then steps in to clarify. "Don't take the statement st face value. Look behind the words.Conservative.
When Pope Francis came on the scene I thought "what a gift!!"
But what is this game the Vatican is playing.
cant the Pope say the first time what he means or do a follow up statement.
No malice intended
-
-
The Pope keeps making vague pronouncements because the pope is puzzled, too.

Indeed the Vatican IS playing a game. Walking a tightrope, as it were. Noncommittal. Must not be speaking ex cathedra .. as it were. But, then again, how can the pope be infallible when trying to address the worldwide protection of pedophilia in its clergy and still retain a modicum of legitimacy on the world stage?

I'm glad you mentioned facts and evidence.

I guarantee I have as much or more legally admissible factual evidence for my one true God than you have for your delusional, immoral god.

What factual evidence do you have for your god, evidence that can be verified and used in a court of law?

Zero. There is no real-world evidence for your delusion.
