New Pope, Same as the Old One

Shout-outs to the Papal Party Posse with electing former Cheers star, John Ratzenberger to the position of Thooper-Dooper Paratrooper Pope Benedict XVI.

As a young priest he was on the progressive side of theological debates but shifted to the right after the student revolutions of 1968. In the Vatican, he has been the driving force behind crackdowns on liberation theology, religious pluralism, challenges to traditional moral teachings on issues such as homosexuality, and dissent on such issues as women’s ordination.

Duff Man says, OH YEAH!

    “Your Holiness, Pope Clifford Clavin the first” has a very nice ring to it … much better than Benedict. I can’t wait for the wave of Jesus freaks to start naming their children Benedict.

    Wanna hear something really funny? There once was a Pope Hilarius. Yes, Hilarius. I think it’d be great if another Pope took that name. I might actually have a little bit of respect for him.
