The Devil made me do it
*Warning this may offend those who are of a religious/catholic disposition*'Go to hell' A phrase popular with people when agitated , annoyed and incredulous but now it seems this popular curse phrase has got some muscle behind it and the backer? Pope Benedict xvi he apparently seems to be using reverse psychology to would be church goers. The Rothweiller as he is endearingly known in the holy sea circles is spouting good old fashioned fire and brimstone sermon and he's got the dark stuff waiting for us sinners. When googling about this guy, I was greeted with allegations of him being luicifer himself if not, certainly being in league with him.. Thing is didnt Pope John Paul II publicly admit that there is no such place? A furious Pope Benedict unleashed a bitter attack during a sermon while on a visit to a parish church and said: "Hell exists and there is eternal punishment for those who sin and do not repent." Sounding more of a parish priest than a Pope the leader of the world's one billion Roman Catholics added: "The problem today is society does not talk about Hell. It's as if it did not exist, but it does."
"Hell consists of an eternal damnation for those who have decided to die with the stain of mortal sin' When challanged about his statement, the holy sea of rome tried to downplay the popes scare tactics that hell was a state of mind, this I understand was probably an attempt to reaffirm John Paul II statement and downplay Dante's The Divine Comedy inspired speech. Im sure if he could he would power point his sermon and illustrate his wrath to sinners using Hieronymus Bosch artwork..
The thing is Pope Benedict should address the problems within his own church oligarchy first, Thousands of children having their innocence stolen from them in the name of god and its catholic 'teachers'. Priests living in luxurious settings and lifestyles. Never mind the church turning a blind eye to genocide in not only the second world war, but many many others. The wealth this church sits on is incredible. And yet here we are listening to this guy spouting out about how we are going to be eternally damned, insulting muslims and generally being a loose cannon. Now if you ask me Im sure more people would be far more encouraged to attend mass if the church itself got incontact with its compassionate side, did an inventory of its wealth and returned its status to the church of the poor. John Paul I tried to do that very thing and his reign as pope was curtailed very quickly and he died under what I would call very suspicious circumstances.Albino Luciani was elected Pope and chose to be Pope John Paul the First. Not only becoming the first double name in the history, but also appended the first to it. He was known as the "Smiling Pope" and though his reign was the second shortest in history, only 33 days, he was loved the world over. This wonderful Pastor would have taken the Church back to its Gospel roots where it belongs. Even to myself as a wiccan, He was truly a Man of God. And you could see from his 33 days as Pope that he would have been the greatest Pope ever in the eyes the world. It is no coincidence that the Pope was killed the evening before he was going to 'clean house'. Though I was surprised by how obvious the cover-up and lies were, he was in my opinion murdered because he dared to promote positive change and rid the Vatican of corrupt banking practices.
I think the holy father himself is cashing in on the mad world around us and taking advantage of those with quite/little faith. As a very much lapsed catholic I never had much time for the church and this guy is in my opinion is just dangerous..
