so the pope is to step down…
… well, to my mind this is actually a most wonderful thing for “catholic christians” and indeed for christians everywhere - as this is a window of opportunity for them all to reconsider the bullshit they’ve been force fed about papal authority and church leadership in general
if the pope was as ordained by God as the catholic church would have us all believe then who made the mistake now that the present pope is stepping down?
did God screw up or did the church?
who never saw it coming?
regardless of which way this is answered it exposes the carnal domain of the papal institution and opens up a wonderful opportunity up for millions to be set free
… and before anyone gets all up on their high-horse about this being an anti-catholic attack, I don’t for one second see the “protestant” church any differently
… if the church leadership of today (universally and I mean inter-faith as well) had any remote residue of ethical or righteous fibre they would all step down from their illegitimate platforms of coercive political power and follow the example of Jesus Christ as clearly portrayed in the new testament text instead of the manipulative, economic based, socio-political business pattern they justify as the spiritual truth.
… with all spiritual sincerity and worshipful respect I shout a most robust and enthusiastic “HALLELUJAH!”
may it be that all his cardinals and bishops, priests and pastors follow in obedience
