I was just wondering if anyone else found it weird that he decided to resign voluntarily because of  "health problems" or is there something more devious behind it?

Wouldn't be surprised if it was something more devious to be honest.

I mean seriously, the guy looks like Emperor Palpatine.....

I've read 2 stories about him, one about pedophilia and another about him taking lots of money from the Vatican. Probably never find out the truth.

Apparently the little gang closest to the Pope(the Cabal?), are involved in paedophilia(?) or have turned a blind eye to it and the only way to get rid of this 'cabal' is for the Pope to resign. If he resigns then this group has to be disbanded and a new group elected. If the Pope had stayed in office until he died then the 'cabal' would not have been disbanded, they would have continued to 'work for' the next Pope.

Regardless, he doesn't feel able to do the job and stepped aside. He should be commended for having that courage not suspected for it.

I'm surprised he even took the job in the first place after what came to light afterwards

Typical... Conspiracy Theorists are suspicious about him when he's the Pope, then when the old man decides to stop being the Pope because *gasp* he's an old man, Conspiracy Theorists are suspicious about him wanting to stop being the Pope .... *facepalm*

From the very first time of seeing Benedict XVI, I have always thought he is Evil, and in my opinion looks Evil....
Man of GOD, don't make me laugh.......

I think there is an ulterior motive, whether financial or related to pedofilia, only time will tell.

I think the explaination was a reasonable one. After the long and public decline of Pope John Paul II it would makes sense to avoid a repeat of that. Thanks to medical technology and advances people are living longer, meaning people reach the point where they're unable to work long before they die.This opens the door for Popes to resign before they become too old to run things.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Just because he claims to be a man of God, it does not mean he is one........

IF he was a man of God then do You really think that he would have been involved in paedophilia, or have turned a Blind eye to it and covered it up?

Not saying he's good or bad. Just struck me as funny that your reasoning was just 'he looks evil'.

You're such a drama queen; 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 think it's both ...... not so much him as the 'gang' closest to him.

I don't think that's odd. Some people have a real knack for reading faces and/or auras.
