  • “but to revel in someone elses pain and illness is, frankly, repulsive”

    According to you perhaps, but with respect, I’d like to revel at least a little.

    The degree of my revelling will be proportional to the suffering caused by the organisation he represents and leads (according to my own moral values).

    That is, I will revel approximately one hundred times as much as if he was Andrew Wakefield, and half as much as if he was Thabo Mbeki (other moral benchmarks are available).

    (Its a tricky one, as the church is obviously responsible for more overall unnecessary death and suffering than Mbeki, but it seems unfair to apply all of the revelling for that to just one man).

    “The Pope must have done something even the Church finds unacceptable. I’m guessing he’s shagged an adult woman.”

    I don’t think many 14 yr olds would understand that let alone find it funny.

    This. I’m out before this thread descends further into the gutter.

    Your first post in the thread, so you flounced in in order to be heard flouncing out?

    I think you underestimate 14 year olds.

    You must have been a very sheltered 14 year old

    Perhaps he read the bile being spouted and announced that he wouldn’t be participating further. You probably should have thought a bit about what he did instead of hurrying to post a smartarse comment, while getting carried away with your excitement at the possible outing of a “flouncer”.

    My couldntgiveaflyingfckometer has just registered no interest in the leader of a silly club resigning.

    You lot are well funny, on every single thread people deviate from the thread topic to abuse, insult and correct one another. Can’t we all just get along?

    Well, seeing as it’s never happened in the entire history of the human race before, I’d suggest not. πŸ˜€

    Still, always nice to meet an optimist. πŸ™‚

    Perhaps he is resigning so he can go play for the other side ?

    (Read into that what you will !)

    The pope says he’s too ill to work, but ATOS suspect Benedict fraud.

    He’s not been well for ages, tbh – why do you think they carry him round in that big chair?

    He’s going to buy a road bike?

    A bit of light reading, if anyone cares about papal resignation policy.

    Can a Pope Ever Resign?

    Yes, this has absolutely no relevance for non-Catholics at all. πŸ™„

    I don’t recognise that as cheese

    If you can get this across to the BBC then I and many like me will be eternally in your debt. there was a guy in my work retired early due to ill health last year. We got him a cake. It didn’t make the news, but then he never went around in a dress telling people who they could marry and not to be gay.

    That is, presumably, ex-Benedict.

    Yeah how dare these mere women question the right of gods representatives on earth to label them second class citizens. She obviously needs to spend some time at the magdalene sisters to sort out her errant ways.

    She’s just bitter because she’s just a glorified rib.

    Some days it seems like every thread on STW is about paypal problems.
