The Pope resigns -- thoughts?

Posted by   + Show Post
Pope Benedict announced today that he would be stepping down from his position, the first papal abdication in 700 years.

What are your thoughts? How do you think this will affect the Catholic church?

News article (if someone could make this an active link, I'd appreciate it):

I don't mind that people use it. I was just answering her question.

Cafemom added it, why not use it or not go in areas where it is.

Because writing anonymously eliminates accountability.

Wow what a hurtful thing to say really. Did you think of that all by yourself or did someone help you.

many kids will be thrilled to know they won't get molested anymore

 It is a decision based on What is supposedly best for the church and the surrounding parishes and the communities, the Countries for Worship in the Catholic Faith so if someone of that stand is not fitting....then it is time for that person, to graciously step down, from that position of high authority and command in the Church, because he as an individual is responsible, spiritually before God and the people of that faith and those looking on......as well.

Frankly, when I first saw the news, saying he was leaving such and such, I'd hoped he'd died!

Imagine my disappointment that he's just a wuss.
