    Are there any other dances they no longer believe in?

    There's something moderately disturbing about that picture. I can't put my finger on it.

    That's what I thought I just put it down to being stuck in limbo again.

    Maybe the Vatican is just in the process of instituting the Wasteland™ and Time Out™?

    They made such a mistake when they chose Ratzinger as Pope. People starving and dying of disease all over the world and The Vatican can only navel-gaze and come up with this sort of stuff. Sadly quite pathetic :(

    I basically agree with you on that, though if this thread is going to be nothing more than a "let's s*** on Catholicism" thread I don't have anything more to add.

    Hopefully the next papal election will go with a more moderate candidate, preferably one that comes from Africa, Asia or South America.

    This was the guy I was hoping for last time. I really think they missed an opportunity by going with a Vatican insider rather than someone who'd been dealing head on with social injustice for the past decade.

    Thank goodness for the real dude :) Word.

    Okay does that mean that part 2 of Dante's Divine Comedy is null and void?

    Part II: Purgatorio is still there, it's Canto 4 in Part I: Inferno that has vanished on us.

    Seeing as we now get to pick and choose God's Will at our convenience I think I may just give this whole religion thing another try.

    But first a few changes.
    1) Daily prayer shall now be replaced by daily beer
    2) No matter what, when you die you always go to heaven, and St. Peter is simply the doorman for the VIP bar, where they keep the good scotch.
    3) Pre Marital/Gay/Group sex actually makes God very happy. Every time you partake in these formally "heathen" activities a kitty cat is born. The more times you do it, the cuter the cats get.
    4) The sabbath shall be for Black Sabbath!

    Yes this seems like a good start, I'll of course be adding and changing things as we go along.

    It depends on the Pope and his ability to be infallible when interpreting God's wishes. Thus, to a Catholic it IS up to God.

    On another note, regardless of if you believe in Catholicism or not, it really does amaze me how many uneducated and insensitive people are out there.
