You're such a drama queen;
Says the person who posted about pedophilia and the Pope's "cabal" and seems to think that my post which quoted no one, and referenced no one in particular was specifically referencing her post... :rolleyes:

it's not a conspiracy :lol:! It's just intriguing and, to some, a bit puzzling. Popes usually 'die in harness' ..... they are all old men; this Pope is unusual in standing down but as I mentioned in post # 4, there is a good reason for that.

I never brought up any kind of conspiracy, all I mentioned was that people were suspicious.

Your post and those of others make it very clear that you and others are suspicious of the former Pope's alleged "motives" for leaving the Papacy before his death, so please, explain to me how pointing out that a group of people are suspicious is in and of itself suspicious or make the person who points that out a "drama queen"...../

Damn, can't be curious about anything or anyone these days without someone labeling you a conspiracy theorist :w00t:

Its one thing to be curious as to why he retired... I'm sure many people are curious about it.

But to question his motives and / or ascribe nefarious intent is something completely different...

Nothing dramatic about my original post ..... it's a fact, so it didn't occur to me that you were addressing me.

You didn't say 'people' were suspicious, you said 'Conspiracy Theorists' were suspicious.

You brought in the drama by referring to Conspiracy Theorists, when in fact the posters here are just curious and interested. (See also: Skater's post which says the same thing).

Yet you replied to me as if I were ...hmmm... :rolleyes:

Conspiracy Theorists are people, too.... aren't they? :huh:

Regardless, its obvious that you missed the point of my original post.....

We're in the CONSPIRACIES section of the board, in case you forgot.... Why is it *SO* dramatic to note that people who believe in / put forward Conspiracy Theories - a.k.a. Conspiracy Theorists (who are, as mentioned, people, too) - who have previously expressed suspicion about the former Pope's actions / motives / shoe size / whatever are NOW expressing suspicion about his leaving the Papacy....?

If we were talking about this in the Religion section of the board, sure, I could see it as overly dramatic to bring in Conspiracy Theorists...

BUT WE'RE IN THE SECTION THAT DEALS WITH CONSPIRACIES.

To which I replied (in case you ignored missed it)...
