I find news about the new pope to be particularly uninteresting.  How do you find news about the new leader of the group of kids down the block from where I live?

A pope being appointed, because he's NOT elected is newsworthy, but all the fluff and bullshit surrounding it is pure nonsense. Example: how do they make white smoke? A: They blow a head gasket.. Who gives a shit?
All hail my new signature!

Admit it. You're secretly green with envy.

He likes to ride buses.
I like that.
I always wondered why having balls was equated with "strength".  Balls are sensitive and delicate, actually.   Better to grow a vagina.  Those things can take a pounding - and pop out a live human being the size of a watermelon.

Imagine the pope riding a cable car to get himself some of that San Fransisco treat.

But the ultimate humility would be, as in biblical days, to ride an ass round the Vatican.
whoops, sorry got off topic.
I apologize.
Won't do it again.

While I obviously reject his claim of speaking to any god, the CC does indeed work to lift many out of poverty and that should be praised. Unfortunately, their social policies re: birth control makes things much worse.
A well balanced response.

There is nothing wrong with birth control , and adequate protection can help lower the spread of infection. Surely a healthier society where less children are born with HIV, where children are born out of 'wedlock' or perhaps 'unplanned' could only potentially be good , surely?

You do realise that the RCC opposes birth control right?

Just because an organization has done good, does not mean that it is good. The Catholic Church is a corrupt criminal organization. They feed off the poor. Their policies have been responsible for the rise in aids in Africa. They hide pedophile priests, nuns, and monks. The leaders of this organization should not be lauded as the mouthpiece of any higher power, they should be locked up in prison.

The best benefit for mankind would be to lock up the leaders of the Catholic Church, distribute its wealth to real charitable organizations and distribute the treasures it has stolen and stockpiled for over a thousand years to museums. That's not likely to happen though since they have too much political power right now.

Christianity = gives people a spiritual impetus to donate to charity i.e purpose of life as Jesus pbuh lived, to give to chairity, to help. Ofcourse, you don't need Christianity for this, but having a spiritual affiliation can make you more likely follow whatthat particular set of beliefs says you should do.

Ends = planet earth with human inhabitants looking out for one another , through charitable means.
The problem there is that I donate to charity as well.  In fact, a new study I just read about yesterday suggests that atheists are MORE motivated by compassion than the religious.  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

By the way, I like your signature.  I've quoted part of it in mine.
