Oh no they are taking his ruby slippers. How will he ever get home?

No problem, he still has his jackboots so I imagine he'll march home via Poland etc.  (Am sure he'll leave out Russia this time)

Since there will be two living Popes, will they have the traditional 'Trading of the Holy Underwear' ceremony. Pope-stains and all?  :whistle:

So, if the anti-Christ, er, Pope, is infalible, then what happens if the new Pope says something is X and the old Pope says it is Y? Do their heads explode? do our heads explode? or does everbody say "Oh, well we all knew it was 2,000 years of lies and nonsense so lets throw it and get back to reality".
I also read that the old Pope will still wear white cassock, is this that if he wore the normal black, then it could be seen dark against light, anti Pope against Pope. Should a boiled egg be put in cup with broad end up, or narrow end up :)

Based on history they would spend the next few years excommunicating each other until everyone got sick of it and put in a third Pope...and which point we'd have three Popes excommunicating each other. :P

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.

Anyone who gets 'confused' about who the 'real' Pope is, is either pretending to be dense, or is so dense they should be a black hole.

Lets hope that the new Pope changes Vatican City law on the age of consent being 12 years old obviously to send a message to those that have wandering hands!

I feel as if the Vatican will most likley vote for the man who will fit the description of Peter the Roman. Maybe having this 2nd pope is what fullfulls the other part of the prophecy about Peter the Roman bringing about the destruction of the cathlic church and rome. I was listening to the news the other day and they stated that the Cathlic church was in turmoil. Maybe these two together try to fix it and fail horribly.

Just a thought.   :whistle:

Hi Ogbin,

Does the scandal that is interesting to me ever end, lets hope that there is a Pope that puts his foot down and gets rid of nasty monks etc!

How are they fake Popes?  According to dictionary.com, the very first definition of "Pope" is:


Quote

pope



[pohp] Show IPA
noun
1. ( often initial capital letter  ) the bishop of Rome as head of the Roman Catholic Church.
Every person who holds the role of bishop of Rome, head of the Roman Catholic Church, by definition they are the "real Pope".
