The coming Pope is supposed to be the last, is supposed to corrupt Christain values and then the 'Terrible Judge' will massacre everyone for being evil. Including the destruction of Rome and the Vatican.

Then Christ returns and we have judgement day. So exciting wheres my popcorn!

Although this could be in a thread of its own I'll post it here.  According to Saint malachy's prophecy of the Popes, the next pope will be the last and during his reign Rome will be destroyed.

The Prophecy of the Popes, attributed to Saint Malachy, is a list of 112 short phrases in Latin. They purport to describe each of the Roman Catholic popes (along with a few anti-popes), beginning with Pope Celestine II (elected in 1143) and concluding with current pope Benedict XVI's successor, a pope described in the prophecy as "Peter the Roman", whose pontificate will end in the destruction of the city of Rome.

edit to add that Rome may refer to the EU (revived Roman empire)

I think many of the past Popes have already corrupted "Christian Values" going back in time to the very first Pope. Torture, Paedophilism, Burning of "Heretics", Intolerance to other belief systems, Aiding and Abetting Dictators,  - in fact name any of the 7 Deadly Sins and the Pope's down the ages have indulged themselves. They brought about the Dark Ages, imprisoned (or worse) scientists, and their  advances, stole money from the poor and infirm, SOLD Redemption... do I really need to say more?? :no:

I'm finding it hard to believe how many people are accepting his explanation at face value. This is astounding. The position of Pope is basically a political position - he is a politician. How many politicians really have stood down for health reasons when that is the excuse given? It's like the go-to excuse when being forced out.

No, I think it more likely that he has been forced out in some way. Some sort of scandal from his past most likely.

He has always been tainted as the man who orchestrated the whole paedophilia cover up so I would say he is just considered "tainted goods" at this stage. By choosing to go down the path of covering up the crimes of the church and promoting a conservative agenda he has presided over a period of continued decline of the church in its key constituency.

Nice work I say - a job well done ;) .

... clearly doesn't have the "Spirit" with him, because isn't that supposed to help a mere mortal to rise above the infirmities that rage through a "normal" man who has not been elevated to the position of Pope??

It was revealed by The Virgin Mary at Fatima that the world would end in 2013. The Pope will either be transferred to a secure underground bunker in hopes of surviving the apocalypse, or will be transported off the planet by extraterrestrials who are in contact with the Vatican.

No it wasn't. No date is mentioned concerning any such event

Don't know if that is the complete list but...that is what I dug up.

It would appear there is a Peter on the List...Peter Turkson and from other articles I read, it appears he is one of the top choices.  Could he be the Petrus Romanus?

I have to say...somewhat tongue in cheek and somewhat stunned....If you recall, it's only been a couple of weeks since the Pope released "the dove of peace" and it was attacked by the seagull.  Bad Omen maybe?  nah...just being ornery...
Thank you very much :tu:

Yep, they definitely need to steer clear of that Peter Turkson, could you imagine the ruckus from the flock?

I think they should choose Keith O'Brien - and they should let him keep his real name - Pope Keith. :w00t:

As for the dove, they have been showing footage all over CNN of the time he released a dove of peace (or pigeon?) and the poor confused bird did an about face mid air and started butting itself against the wall next to the Pope's balcony.  Wonder what omen that was?  The outside world has become too evil for a dove of peace to fly into and it would rather hide in the Vatican? Anyway it was hilarious, apart from feeling a little sorry for the dove.

I'm pretty sure he was joking.

Like I said earlier, the butler made off with his personal notes ... just saying.
