You've never heard of papal infallibility?
I've never been a Catholic, and I've heard of it. It doesn't mean he's perfect, just that he's never wrong about doctrine, whatever that doctrine is, including dinosaurs or whatever. The fact that the church changes it's mind on such matters just shows what a complete load of balls it all is, and yet the sheep are eating it all up. Even if he's not speaking infallibly, the 'poor saps' will most certainly eat it all up. He is
the Catholic church!

Do you live in a cave, or what? If they'll believe in a mythical sky pixie, they'll believe in anything.

Whether or not this happens depends on what the next pope thinks. He's never wrong about these things, remember?

No, which is why we can excuse his behaviour, but also why his behaviour makes him unsuitable for the job. If he'd worked as a prostitue rather than starve to death, would we judge him? I wouldn't. Would they let him be pope? They wouldn't, and shouldn't.

What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!
