    Which Pope is pictured on The_Pope’s avatar?

    Isn’t it the one before the one we have now? I’m pretty sure that Jer doesn’t have much respect for this current guy, since he actually upholds a number of Catholic tenets that Jer doesn’t think should be emphasized. Cafeteria Catholicism.

    So why the lightning bolts and red eyes?

    Looks like the Emperor Palpatine to me.

    Maybe Emperor Papaltine?

    I’m not a huge fan of the present Pope…

    Of course you’re not.

    He’s trying to steer the Church more towards the teachings of Christ himself.

    At least, the choice of Pope Benedict XVI (Joseph Aloisius Ratzinger) for the avatar is consistent with the views expressed in the posts.

    Ratzinger is the Scalia of Popes.

    Fuck the poor and pass the Communion wafer!

    Pope Benedict is a Nazi.

    It’s not real, but it’s just as real as half the stuff F&B uses to support some of his BS.

    All kidding aside, I don’t find it to be a problem for a poster on this forum to state that (s)he is a devout Catholic who strongly identifies with the church and its doctrines. However, I do find it disturbing that said person would take on the persona of the Pope.

    The red eyes symbolize the eternal struggle deep within the account holder between his basically good soul, and his overpowering compulsion to be an authoritarian, judgemental, holier-than-thou, tone-deaf jerk.

    The lightening bolts symbolize how cool it would be for one of the most dogmatic and conservative leaders of the Catholic Church to actually have lightening bolts come out of his hands. He would be able to solve the church’s problem with “teh gays” in no time. (Amiright, F&B? Huh? Huh? Amiright?)

    Which is actually something that can be said for about half of this forum’s present-day clientele.

    Thank you!

    Wear it like a badge.
