POPE TO RESIGN! NEXT GUY SURE TO SUPPORT GAY MARRIAGE, WOMEN’S ORDINATION, AND CONTRACEPTION, RIGHT?

Watching the coverage of the Pope’s upcoming resignation I can’t help but smile a little in thinking how this particular pontiff is going to be a teacher right up to the end. If this morning’s newscasts are any indication, the next few weeks will be full of nattering nabobs breathlessly speculating on whether this means the Church will finally fall in line with their pet causes such as gay marriage, women’s ordination, contraception, abortion, et al. And then I’ll smile as the truth smacks them in the forehead. Clever, Pope, very clever.

Even so, the coverage is bound to get tiresome at times. So, when you need a break, be sure to check in around here where we’ll be keeping things light as usual. In fact, the review for Gargoyles will be up later today. But for the moment, here’s a picture of Godzilla playing a guitar. Enjoy.

    I expect people at the opposite extreme, on the Catholic far right, to claim that this is a fulfillment of various prophecies that this is the last Pope, and refuse to recognize his successor, whoever that may be, as a true Pope.

    Ah, the Malachy Prophecies. I don’t think I’ll hold my breath waiting on those to come to pass. Of course, if the next guy takes the name Pope Peter II, then I’ll happily break out the popcorn and get a good seat for the final battle. I’m fine either way.
