Is this why the Pope really resigned?


Dave L sent me this great screen grab from the BBC News site, and suggested that it shows why the pope resigned – he’s been hiding under a full-head mask!

    Smart move, pope must be one of the the most dangerous jobs goin, in the last 600 years they have all died whilst in office

  2. […] Richard Wiseman suggests he's resigned because the BBC discovered he's been hiding behind a full-head mask. __________________ […]

    I think he didn’t want to get bumped off, like the last two.

  4. loumaia says:

    Either the responsibility became too much or he is terminally ill and doesn’t have that long to live. Either way, at least he knows when to step down unlike other leaders such as Assad or Mugabe who hang in there because they are unable to let go of the power until someone in their own camp has the courage to knock them off. Look what happened to Cadaffi.

  5. Ron Murphy says:

    I thought Richard was implying that Tesco Every Day Spaghetti Bolognese 60% horse meat was one modern day moral outrage too far for him to handle. This on top of having to accept condom use as merely a lesser moral evil.

    • Jens Knudsen (Sili) says:

      Horsemeat is actually taboo in the RCC after the cavalry played an important role in beating back the Moors. I don’t know if they’ve ever rescinded it.

  6. TS says:

    He was getting nervous, he’s just about the only thing that hasn’t yet turned up in a beef lasagne.

    yes, the croata maffia mask

  8. DON WRIGHT says:

    Pope Benedict XVI has announced his retirement citing his advanced age and infirmaries. I think his motivation for calling it quits may be more prosaic. You’ll recall that His Holiness recently wrote a book that corrected certain myths attached to the birth of Jesus. He surmised that the Three Wise Men may not have actually existed and that the star of Bethlehem was an astrological impossibility.

    Here’s my take: Benedict, before writing his treatise on the virgin birth, actually picked up and READ the Bible. Five minutes into the Gospel of St. Matthew, Benedict had a revelation that the entire Book was utter bunk. He lost his faith and has become a regular blogger over at the Secular Humanists of Rome site.

    If you don’t believe in God, it’s really tough to walk around St Peters in red shoes without feeling ridiculous. Benedict couldn’t take the pressure and resigned. It’s as simple as that.

  9. Jens Knudsen (Sili) says:

    I guess I see what you mean, but it doesn’t really work for me. I have to stretch my imagination to make it work. Not nearly as obvious as some of the others. I noticed the horsemeat headline before I figured out what I was meant to be looking at.

    Every time I see that man I can only think “The Zombie Apocalypse is finally here.”

    I don’t get it

  12. balto says:

    he was accountable for the child molestation coverups.

      Balto, you’re an ass. Your intellect begins and ends in one exhalation of your halotasic breath. Sign off and be quiet pinhead.

    He resigned because he was being blackmailed. His papers were stolen and people found out that he did in fact try to cover up all the child molestation in the church. People found out he is in fact an evil man.

    After the publication of Edelweiss Pirates Operation Einstein it’s no wonder he stepped down, he is a war criminal. Yes we all knew he was a member of the Hitler Youth, but the book points out what he did, and how a resistance fighter who was hiding in a neighbors house was turned in by the pope to the SS. Villagers said he was trying to impress his father a local police man. When the SS turned up, the resistance fighter shot himself, so he would not get taken alive, tortured and forced to inform on other resistance members. The Catholic Church has known for years of this, but now it has broken, the book was published just weeks ago despite attempts to stop it, within hours of it going live on Kindle the Pope stepped down and the Church frantically tried to put in a successor. The novel is written by Prince Williams favorite author Mark A. Cooper, although a work of fiction, Cooper writes many facts, he tells both sides, not just the atrocities carried out by the Nazi’s but what the Jews did to Germany in 1933 to upset Hitler. While interviewing locals he discovered much more than he bargained for, he was given an audience with the Pope for his side of the story, the Church tried to persuade Cooper to just archive the story.
    Te day before Cooper left Rome he was mugged and had his laptop stolen, he had however already sent a transcript to his agent in NY. The Church denied any connection and wished him no harm.

      The BBC ? Great source of honest and reliable informatio they are!
      The pope has done so much good for mankind since his youth if he had done
      anything bad he would be more than truly forgiven by God.

      Which simply means WE ALL still have time to turn to GOD!
      Jesus loved us ALL even the criminals and the prostitutes who were forgiven if they repented
      and asked for forgiveness.
