Death of the Pope

The blogosphere has been filled with thought’s on the Pope’s demise. Hans Küng’s articleThe Pope’s Contradictions is a well-written critique , written shortly before the Pope’s death.

I agree with Collective Sigh’s thoughts for the next Pope:
I’m not a Catholic; not even a lapsed one. Nor am I a male. Both are requirements for those who will elect a new Pope. But minor details like that have never stopped me from offering my opinion in the past. My first choice would be a woman.

It was a woman after all who birthed and raised a boy who would one day be the leader of one of the most influential religions in human history. If Mary did that just think what a woman priest could do in these times.

However, if the Vatican picks another conservative man who represses sexuality and personal choice, here’s something amusing: the Pope has been reborn in comic book form:


From Yahoo:
Pope John Paul II is being reborn in a Colombian comic book as a superhero battling evil with an anti-Devil cape and special chastity pants.
