    Recently someone asked Pope Benedict XVI why God allowed such painful tragedies to happen to good people. The pope responded by saying, Why do the high school students on Glee look 40 years old?

    The Pope looks like Emperor Palpatine a.k.a. Darth Sidious.

    Sounds like he checked out Glee and was disappointed that the kids on it didn't look young enough for his liking.

    Why not? Hasn't he said that condom use spreads AIDS? Doesn't he head an institution that peddles in shame and submission, all the while enabling child rapists? Wasn't he a member of the Nazi youth? Yes, yes and yes.

    Here's a dude who's supposed to be God's representative on earth, the grand wizard of Christianity. Meanwhile he flounces about the gilded halls of the Vatican, waving at the destitute from his wretched pope-mobile, telling poor women that contraception is a sin, advising the miserable, starving masses to accept their lot because it's God's will. Really?

    I can't think of anyone better to pick on.

    Fuck the pope.

    MTE, it would be a funny comment if they actually looked 40, but they look 25-ish.

    @the pope pickers... i personally dont care... but he's honestly nowhere near as bad as most religious groups these days though... try the Protestants, Muslims, Orthodox Jews, Mormons, Jehova's Witnesses, Hindus, Buddhists, and tribal religions ... Catholicism is seriously tame by comparison to every other religion as concerns what comprises sin.... if you wanna pick.. you have a lot worse to pick at.....

    Apparently he has a sense of humour.. so does his Holiness the Dalai Lama... when a little girl asked his Holiness what she could do for self-improvement... his Holiness looked at her hands and said "you can start by cutting your finger nails"

    Uh, no. Protestants, Muslims, Orthodox Jews, etc. don't have major problems with pedophiles in their hierarchy. Catholics do. The reason is that other religions let their leaders marry.

    Not to pick a fight, but the most notable pedophiles in the news recently are all married men. And in this area, there have been quite a few instances of pedophiles in non-Catholic church leadership. I don't think that the Catholics have a lock on pedophilia, they just have a bad rap for systematically covering it up.

    No fight found! That said, which other religion has faced so many charges of pedophilia?
