Ratzinger Smells Money AND He Wants To Be Queen!


He also wants to get a ride on Uganda's anti-homosexuality bandwagon -

So now Pope Benedict XVI wants to welcome disgruntled Anglicans into the Roman Catholic fold. Why? Is it a blatant act of bigotry? Or does he simply want to act the part of a Samaritan to arch conservatives?

Neither.


It's money.


And the British Monarchy

Let's conjecture here: could Benedict be taking his cues from the one and only Rick Warren? It's possible:
Minority groups in Western provinces have stated their opposition to what they consider unscriptural actions by the Churches of England, Canada, Australia, and the ECUSA, and in the United States, some (such as the Anglican Mission in the Americas and the Convocation of Anglicans in North America) have withdrawn their affiliation with the ECUSA and realigned themselves with African provinces such as the Churches of Uganda and Rwanda.

On July 9, 2008, The New Vision Newspaper reported that Archbishop Orombi had addressed the West Ankole diocese alleging a threatening atmosphere or conspiracy by homosexuals to cause him harm, saying, "Nowadays, I don’t wear my collar when I am in countries which have supporters of homosexuals. I am forced to dress like a civilian because those people are dangerous. They can harm anybody who is against them. Some of them are killers. They want to close the mouth of anybody who is against them."

Warren. Orombi. Benedict. Looks like Uganda's gays don't have a chance of survival against Christofascists. The closets of Uganda will be overflowing.

Dan,
I did one on the Queen Having Pope over for Tea.
Then this bare-faced stealing of the clergy is going to take place. I wrote this but it isn't published yet.
Let me know what you think.

The Vatican –EBBQ Pope Benedict XVI's poker-night fish story is: “Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day; teach a man to fish and he'll stop coming to church.

"Dummy…," continues B-Dict (the hip–hop nickname that he loves), "You don't want him to be able to feed himself for a lifetime, you want him to always need The Pope. OK?"

But on the outside, towards the great unwashed public that makes up the congregation of the Holy Church, he's promoting a most different saying...“Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day; teach a man to fish and he'll feed his family for a lifetime."

Definitely a difference, close to almost historic proportions in this "Fisher of Men" story.

Proceeding from our lead-in story about the Pope and The Wayward Anglicans, we called it "Queen To Have Pope Over For Tea", paste in: (http://glossynews.com/society/religion/200910020448/queen-prepares-to-have-pope-over-for-tea/). Anyway, B-Dict has embarked on an historic teaching lesson about Fish.

Ok, it's true, his idea of fishing is beyond ours. We're thinking fresh, tasty fish fillets, hot grills, salsas — he's on to separating out; finger-pointing confessionals; expanding the Vatican's coffers. Turning around the sad state of Catholic affairs in Europe. Also England.

Out of respect to the church, ICANN, the internet naming orginasation, has called this Papal Endeavor by their new name, "phishing", but they spell it "Fishing" in B-Dict's honor. No need to anger a German unnecessarily.

The Pope On Fish is like this:

1.) Invite The Queen to Tea –at her house. And supply Vatican Royal Tea.
2.) Mention the Anglican church's newest problems of having women and gays as priests
and bishops. Commiserate deeply.
3.) Offer blessed Catholic wafers to go with the tea.
4.) Compliment the Queen's choice of shoes. Offer an introduction to the Papal Cobbler
on her next Italian vacation.
5.) Mention, as an aside, any currently married priests and bishops will have free use of
the full offices of the Vatican. No marriage sanctions in clergy advancement.
6.) Catholic church property still being used for spiritual functions to remain in English
hands for a small remunerative amount to be settled later. Certainly not the €16bn
being bandied about in the press.
7.) Appear with the Queen at a press conference smiling reverently. Announce good news.

Haven't finished. I am trying for the comic twist, but it isn't there.
