People always have to find a flaw in every single action someone does. Makes you feel good? Superior perhaps?

You are teh best anon!
User avatar #164 to #23 - shaddowmarshal (03/22/2013) [-]
Yes
User avatar #31 to #23 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (03/22/2013) [-]
It's not about finding the flaw in his action, it's that HE, ONLY HE is supposed to have the closest connection to god and perhaps even talk to him personally, yet he cannot even follow the commandments of said god

It's not only insulting to the christian god, but to christians in general as well

But what the hell do I care, I don't even like the guy

What commandments hasn't he followed? Please explain
User avatar #193 to #140 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (03/23/2013) [-]
Hmm? It has nothing to do with commandments (although I'm sure he hasn't followed some. The old testament bans everything from eating shellfish to shaving your sideburns under penalty of death. And before you say the new testament removes them from play, there's also a commandment in the old testament that says until "he" comes down again, all rules are to be followed accordingly)

It has to do with being a nice and kind person, you know, giving away all his gold to feed the poor rather than looking good. After all, it was jesus himself who said that it was easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man to get into heaven
User avatar #194 to #193 - pabloch (03/23/2013) [-]
So you'd have the vatican give away or sell golden historical artifacts which are deemed invaluable? Why doesn't Greece, which is in a big economical crisis, sell those ancient greek statues or relics?

"It's not about finding the flaw in his action, it's that HE, ONLY HE is supposed to have the closest connection to god and perhaps even talk to him personally, yet he cannot even follow the commandments of said god"
If it's not about commandments then you just made your previous statement meaningless. And also, giving away gold to feed poor? at least say SELL, you can't feed gold to people, much less air.

It's obvious you haven't read the bible, or if you had, you didn't even comprehend what you were reading, because you keep trying to make references about the old testament, and just the fact that you try to take something from it as literal makes you an ignorant.

Who deems them invaluable? I'm sure jesus, who was supposed to be the very epitome of compassion and grace would have preferred even the most evil person be fed and clothed than have a bunch of artefacts at his feet. And trying to pass the attention over to someone else doesn't absolve anyone of blame

Hmm, you're right, I apologize and admit my wrong doing. If you would allow me to change my statement, I would change it to the point that he SHOULD follow all the rules god lays out, along with anything he tells the pope to do

What do you mean 'keep trying'? That was the first time I did. Oh, I'm sorry, I wasn't aware that "Exodus 21:7. states that it is acceptable to sell your daughter into slavery" is supposed to be a metaphor for...what again? Hold on, let me try again, is "Deut:13:13-9 states that ANYONE who disobeys the laws of the lord must have their town destroyed, as well as their livestock and buildings" a metaphor for "If you do not accept gods gifts, they should be taken away"?
User avatar #196 to #195 - pabloch (03/23/2013) [-]
History itself deemed them invaluable, other than that I can't really say anything else.

You should understand that the old testament is in part, also a historical text, it tells us the history of Israel, not exactly nor cronologically as it happened, and through the eyes of people who tried to explain it. Just think of how different God is in the Old and new Testaments and you can probably see my point. In the Old one, God is practically a human with superpowers, he hates, he kills, he destroys, he enacts revenge. Yet when you get to the New testament, he radically changes.

I'm just gonna take my time to dedz you, I thought you were going to react like a 12 year old and go "tl:dr" but you proved me wrong and you even quoted stuff.

One more thing, don't go hatin' on the Pope with no reason, it's what made me think of you as a 12 years old. So far I haven't heard anything of him breaking any commandments, so I guess you hadn't as well and just assuming he did is insulting.
User avatar #197 to #196 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (03/23/2013) [-]
How can you, as a christian, see monetary value as more valuable than life itself?

I thought it wasn't supposed to be taken literally... (Yes, that's true god did change, but he also said the rules do NOT change. You must follow them all until the second coming)

Thank you, I appreciate that. And it's because you took the time to respond to me with logic and reasoning, rather than freaking out which I'm sure many people wanted to do.

I don't know if he broke any commandments, it just seems probably that he did, because EVERYONE has at some point.

All I'm saying is that there are other ways to help the poor, did you know the money they get in catholic churches (I can't remember the name in english) goes to keep the church up and then they donate the rest? How many church owned dinner halls where homeless people go to eat you know? they are very common in USA, or so I've heard. In my country. which is a third world one, there are church groups that go to the poorest sections of the country to give food, they build them homes, I know this because I've been there.

I'm not continuing the argument about whether the church should sell or keep the golden relics, it's not up to either of us anyways. I would sell them, but I can see why they don't.

The pope and every other priest are in the end, human. Every single human has flaws, but what religion teachs is not to reject sin and scorn those who sin, because everyone is a sinner, we all do wrongs as we do rights. But, it's in us to accept this wrongs and work on them until we don't do them anymore.

Does it make you feel good pointing out the flaws in the flaw pointer outters?

If he was Jesus he would probably walk, dude loved to walk.

Well, actually... If that was Jesus it would technically be the rapture.
#47 - connorsg (03/22/2013) [-]
seriously...are we really going to knit pick at this? I mean really? the guy refuses limos, he used to take public transportation before he was pope, he cooked his own meals, and lived in sub standard housing all to do what Jesuits are supposed to do, identify with the poor and serve them. I'm sorry but it doesn't matter if you are religious or an atheist but these posts are just getting ridiculous.

Heres a picture of Christians making a circle around praying muslims in Cairo to protect them from anti muslim protests. There ya go people being awesome, why do people feel the need to constantly **** on other peoples beliefs, if it isnt your life then why do you care?
User avatar #52 to #47 - EvilFluffyBunny (03/22/2013) [-]
I believe that is a picture of the old Pope and not the new one.

I agree completely, i am a Jesuit, this is one of the most humble people in our order...

That moment when you can't even fly in a plane without being judged

Btw, this is the most stupid post I've seen today
User avatar #70 to #27 - daentraya (03/22/2013) [-]
Havent seen the 'man the harpoons' post about a chubby girl, i suppose. This is second dumbest for me
#26 - I Am Monkey (03/22/2013) [-]
I can't imagine that working in practice. What do they do? Just pull up to a homeless shelter and say "Hey, we got like 6 open seats on a flight to the Vatican. The plane leaves in a half hour. Also, we probably won't be visiting this country again this decade so you're on your own getting back."

It's a moot point anyway, he Jesus wouldn't need a jet. I'm pretty sure he can fly seeing that he's God and all.

The Pope is not Jesus, but:   
   
Mathew 26, 6-12   
   
6 And when Jesus was in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, 7 a woman came to Him having an alabaster flask of very costly fragrant oil, and she poured it on His head as He sat at the table. 8 But when His disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, “Why this waste? 9 For this fragrant oil might have been sold for much and given to the poor.”   
   
10 But when Jesus was aware of it, He said to them, “Why do you trouble the woman? For she has done a good work for Me. 11 For you have the poor with you always, but Me you do not have always. 12 For in pouring this fragrant oil on My body, she did it for My burial.

To further back up the things people are saying in the comments, the Pope probably didn't say "hey, make sure I get a private jet with only enough seats for me." They have to fly him alone for security just like they have to fly the President alone. If the Pope could fly coach and not have people constantly trying to touch him/ask him for an autograph/assault him/kill him then I'm sure he would do it.
#177 - icametocomment (03/22/2013) [-]
I could be wrong, but didn't the new pope just start an effort to get rid of some of the tensions between Islam and Christianity? I'm not Catholic, but that sounds like a good idea to me.
#100 - blubblablub (03/22/2013) [-]
yay! just imagine how happy poor people would be if they could go somewhere else for free, where again they couldn't afford anything
#143 - chaoticscientist (03/22/2013) [-]
Leave the guy alone! He's the pope and head of the Catholic church, I'm pretty sure it is just for security reasons!

Having a pope goes against what the Bible says anyway, those Catholics might as well form a religion on their own, it's as if they've never opened the book.
