    What a wus. John Paul II was practically a pickle and they still propped him up on the pulpit. Wonder how much plummeting membership had to do with this choice?

    I doubt that, but, they will have to evolve to survive.

    Believe there's more Power Elite Planning and Machinations Crowd Activity behind the scenes than we'll ever know.

    I've heard this too, which is why the news about this pope disturbed me this morning.

    Educate yourself and check this page out, which outlines what RBHILL is alluding to. It's okay, you can continue your snark after you read the page, if that's what you really want.

    Generally prophecies shift as they are found to be B.S.

    As soon as this prophecy is found to be false the believers in this one will probably find some other reason why this didn't somehow fulfill the conditions.

    My question had nothing to do with snark, it actually was an honest question because often these prophecies are moving targets. People have been claiming that prophecies are saying the end of the word is coming soon for hundreds of years and we're still here.

    if the next guy is the last pope it will mean a lot to christians bolstering their faith. what will it mean if to christians if there are lots more popes? will it chip away at their faith.

    That's the problem with prophecy. Usually no specific time is given because most timelines are driven by what the "prophet" desires to be true. Prophecies given by God never give a timeline (as far as I know).

    You can believe what you want, of course, but not all prophecies are false.
