The king of the Catholics says we live in a world without hope. Way to inspire the flock, huh?
A world without hope? Clearly he hasn’t been with the common folk enough, because I see hope almost everyday, especially around finals.
You must admit it is pretty pathetic when millions follow such a person/dogma.
Bunch of idiots.
Personally I believe in the Baby Jones man. He’s the Cosmic Rasta!
This is rather weak coming from the Pope. I agree.
I wonder if it was badly translated from Italian. Or is native German.
Doesn’t seem like a polished statement to me.
He also sounds like he himself has no hope. He asks the question but does he offer a solution? Might have expected a bible reference in there somewhere. He had plenty of his 140 characters left.
His next one is this:
We can be certain that a believer is never alone. God is the solid rock upon which we build our lives and his love is always faithful.
Talking about fucking the pope, watch this and listen carefully. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sph8Qu8wLAk
I don’t think he is saying the world is without hope. I think he is saying hope is essential if you believe in Jesus. After all, despair is a sin in Catholic theology. It is a rhetorical question. Implicit in the question is the idea that if you believe in Jesus, you must live in hope. Otherwise, you can’t live your faith.
It’s bullshit either way.
I left the Catholic Church in 1973 and have seen nothing in the ensuing years to encourage me to return. I’ve been religionless for the past 19 years.
Nice, isn’t it?
I saw a post recently on Facebook; ‘Money is a sin – give it to the Catholic Church.’
And another; ‘Bless the starving children – while I hold onto this solid gold cross.’
Sounds like a couple lines that would fit right in with chapter 9 in my new book. The chapter is called Religion: It’s Magically Malicious!
Neil Gaiman has more followers than the Pope by half a million. I’m not sure anybody’s listening.
Until I hit google just now, I didn’t even know who that was.
