Police say the fake Pope can be easily recognized by his high-top sneakers and incredibly foul mouth.

Maybe he changed the ring to silver so he could punch werewolves in the face

Whereas Benedict is all like:

"I live for the applause, applause, applause, I live for the applause-plause"
#15 to #9 - anon (01/01/2014) [-]
Benedict was a bit cool tho from what I've heard.

Some guy tried to assassinate him, got caught and Benedict met with him in prison and forgave him.

or sumthin like that

You are thinking of Pope John Paul II
Here is the source:

That was Pope John Paul II what's wrong with you.

#6.

He's not priest, he is a Cardinal.
User avatar #5 to #4 - anonymoose ONLINE (12/31/2013) [-]
From what I know:

The Pope is a high ranked Cardinal.
A Cardinal is a high ranked Bishop.
A Bishop is a high ranked Priest.

Priests have **** dps anyway.
User avatar #6 to #5 - godtherapist (12/31/2013) [-]
That is like saying that a CEO is just a file clerk. They're the same as a promotion in any other group of people. Cardinals have way different jobs than Priests.
User avatar #38 to #6 - anonymoose ONLINE (01/01/2014) [-]
It's not.

In Christian heirarchy they have different roles,but same position (priest)

how many times does he level up to become a cleric?

Best pope ever.

wrong. John Paul the Second.
User avatar #26 to #24 - SognaVetr (01/01/2014) [-]
Imo Franciscus is better Paul II was a decent guy but Franciscus actually does stuff for the poor and says interesting stuff like "i'm not to judge gay people" and "atheists are good if they act good".

Now if only the rest of the Vatican would follow his image...
User avatar #28 to #26 - asheskirata (01/01/2014) [-]
First, it's Francis, second, Francis has directly stated "Gay marriage and adoption are an affront to God's divine creation and child abuse." He also stated that "women do not belong in public office of any sort."
User avatar #29 to #28 - SognaVetr (01/01/2014) [-]
Firtsly, it's Franciscus I (and the other guy is actually Paulus II), it's not because the english world changes the papal names that everyone should. Secondly, can you provide source for those two quotes? If he said that, i'll change my views on him. Thirdly, i'm an atheist and i've always opposed the church on their views about gays, women and covering up child abuse, just so you know.

There's another difference that I don't think anybody caught.

There was a whole different dude sitting in the chair.

Benedict was kind of a specific cunt, but I refuse to accept all of this praise for Francis.
User avatar #27 to #25 - demandsgayversion (01/01/2014) [-]
I don't think Francis' praise was directed at you anyway, it's not yours to accept.
User avatar #36 to #27 - wiredguy (01/01/2014) [-]
You know full well that's not what I meant.

I'm just saying that I think people are idolising him irrationally.
He certainly seems better than those before him, but being good by comparison does not make you good ultimately.
User avatar #37 to #36 - demandsgayversion (01/01/2014) [-]
If better doesn't make you good, then who will choose the height of the bar labeled 'good'? Do you think you can hoist such a standard?
User avatar #39 to #37 - wiredguy (01/01/2014) [-]
You mean to say that the concept of "good" is relative?
Brilliant! That's something I always try and press, myself.

And you're exactly right.
But we can't just compare him to previous popes. It would be like if the next leader of Germany in 1944 only felt like murdering some of the Jews.
It's relative to everything, not just niche relativity.

I guess I am being a dick, but people would have agreed with me before Francis. It's a media thing, I guess, people have come to like him.
And I hope he does do some good for the world, to change Catholicism, but for now I think that the whole Church is still inherently negative.
There's a balance.
They give lots of money to charity, but not nearly as much as they could actually be capable, and only a fraction of what other large powers in the world do. Plus the beliefs which they spread lead to a hell of a lot of grief and ignorance.

For instance, they began campaigns trying to educate people about contraception, in which they claimed that it would increase the spread of AIDS in Africa.
That's ******* retarded, and has probably directly killed lots of men, women and children in areas strongly influenced by religion.
They still spread great hate about the gays, and other committers of "sins" which we can plainly see under modern logic, aren't actually hurting anyone. They spread hate about people who are of other religious beliefs.

I dunno man, it's just me, I guess. It's my opinion, and it's a strong one, I get that, and I have no problem with Catholic people at all, want to make that clear now. Just the Church itself, the part with power, as it tends to sadly be in most cases across history. You may be religious, or Catholic, yourself. And I'm sorry if you are, but, "power corrupts". You have to admit that.
And unless Francis ***** his job up royally, he's still the leader of the Catholic Church, and that's the first thing which has to be considered.
User avatar #41 to #39 - demandsgayversion (01/02/2014) [-]
From what I heard, Pope Frank has been pretty cool about all the ******** catholic beliefs. I heard he's even cool with gay people, as long as they're catholic (and that's about as good as you can hope for). Is he retarded about condoms and AIDS?
User avatar #42 to #41 - wiredguy (01/02/2014) [-]
I certainly hope not.
User avatar #43 to #42 - demandsgayversion (01/02/2014) [-]
I'm curious to see how he'll handle the pedophiles.
User avatar #44 to #43 - wiredguy (01/02/2014) [-]
Hmmmm
User avatar #45 to #44 - demandsgayversion (01/02/2014) [-]
I JUST REALIZED HOW WRONG THAT SOUNDS
#35 - gameshredder (01/01/2014) [-]
The sad thing is, when the time comes for the next pope, they just might reverse everything he's done.   
   
I hope every pope after him follows in his foot steps.

ah i think i found it:
while the one might be more conservative, he was the better player in the game called power and thus could bring in slow but steady actual reforms, while the others fled into symbolism, by that scaring away even the biggest church interest in reforms. but most people do not understand how the church works. a pope from germany was not chosen without reason beforehand. those cardinals are the heart of a possible reform.

First german pope since 1057ad. He screws it!
