Ghey!! I don't think this is funny, be aware you could hurt other peoples feelings.

I am catholic and I am happy he won the election and if you know something about the catholic religion you must know that the cardinals pray to the holy ghost to join the election and the spirit help them to choose the right Pope. I can see it in his eyes that the spirit of God touched him.

Don't play games with such nasty pictures.

I can't believe a FC Mod. post such a pic.

"Mit Kriegsliedern auf den Lippen" (With war songs on his lips)

"From Hitler Youth to Papa Ratzi": Britische Boulevardmedien würden den Deutschen gerne als Nazi entlarven. Dabei hat Ratzinger nie ein Geheimnis aus seiner Zeit in der Hitler-Jugend gemacht.

("From Hitler Youth to Papa Ratzi":  British Boulevard newspapers would like to expose the German as a Nazi. But Ratzinger never made a big secret about his time in the Hitler youth...)


I'm German
This is just uncalled for. My dad is the same age as the pope. Should he be called a Nazi?
I really question the boulevard press in England. They have no knowledge at all. What people work in those places? Obvious just thick and undereducated journalist's. Shame on them.
And the frightening thing is, there are people in Britain who will actually believe those storys.

more here (in German)

Nobody takes The Sun seriously. It's made for people who get a little bored reading for more than five seconds and have to flip back to the naked pictures. Given the history of the church and the Nazi party someone was bound to make an issue out of it. They didn't have the intelligence to look into it properly I bet.

(Probably wrong to laugh, but thanks Ghey, that picture gave me a laugh after a bad day)

I am sooo sorry guys  He's from Bavaria, Germany, the most conservative part of this country - and he's 78!!
Oh well, let's hope for the best.
Why are you sorry?
This must be a disappointment for those who wished for a less conservative pope with a more modern view of the world. 
I also don't like having people of my country in such positions, cause whatever they do, we'll get the blame. People have already labeled him as the "Nazi Pope". I am so sick of the fact that even today our kids have to justify themselves for things their (great-)grandparents did.
And now we have a german Pope ... *sighs*

I see now what you mean. I didn't realise you are from Germany as well.

I live in England but I'm german. I didn't know people called him names like that when will they learn? When I came over here in the beginning, I was even called a Nazi but I told them the truth and it stopped but it was hard. Even now sometimes people make jokes (at work) about me being German. Two boys used to do the Heil Hitler sign when they saw me.

Etaeb, I think it's sad this was printed, even though not many people take it seriously, some do.

Stuff like this makes me really angry. I can't say I'm glad that Ratzinger was chosen but calling him a Nazi is plain stupid. Yeah, he joined Hitler's Youth but people should realize that it was compulsory at that time and he did desert the army later on. It makes me sad that the english still insult us or joke about it in the manner you described. It's so bad that even our foreign minister addressed this issue once while he was in England.

hello..i posted a few times in the other "pope" thread (from when JP II died)  as i've stated numerous times before (just restating in case someone here doesn't know) I'm not Catholic, but I have a question...what is the purpose of the Pope, and is his role in the church Biblical or man-made? (and I mean no disrespect by the phrase 'man-made', just asking) Also, I've heard a few times that Catholics believe that us Protestants are going to Hell...is this true? i just wanted to clear this up thanks to anyone that answers 


I hate quoting myself, but HEY GUYS I ASKED A QUESTION!!!!!!  don't mean to sound rude but I feel kinda slighted that you guys made a whole new page in this thread and completely ignored my post...

Hey girl,

I didn't realise you'd asked a question! poor dear. Here's a site that you can check on what you looking for and on what other questions you may have.

http://www.catholic.com/default.asp

And I'd like to add that, everyone should read more about their faiths or whatever it is that they believe. Even myself. Understanding is always good thing. I'm not saying that you don't Jordan, I'm just making a general statement. I hope you find what you're looking for on that site, if not PM me, I'll see if I can look for other sites for you.

Ok, girls I just looked at your ages and I think young people can laugh about pics like the one Ghey posted. Maybe you have to find some experience in life to take things more serious. I am sorry if this sound rude, I don't want to be like this but to look at such a pic didn't make me laugh at all. I think the pic is tasteless.

I kind of like the look of the new pope. Not bad for 78.
Anybody else thinks he looks like Sir Anthony Hopkins in this pic.

Protestantism (16th Century)



Protestant groups display a wide variety of different doctrines. However, virtually all claim to believe in the teachings of sola scriptura ("by Scripture alone"—the idea that we must use only the Bible when forming our theology) and sola fide ("by faith alone"— the idea that we are justified by faith only).

The great diversity of Protestant doctrines stems from the doctrine of private judgment, which denies the infallible authority of the Church and claims that each individual is to interpret Scripture for himself. This idea is rejected in 2 Peter 1:20, where we are told the first rule of Bible interpretation: "First of all you must understand this, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation." A significant feature of this heresy is the attempt to pit the Church "against" the Bible, denying that the magisterium has any infallible authority to teach and interpret Scripture.

The doctrine of private judgment has resulted in an enormous number of different denominations. According to The Christian Sourcebook, there are approximately 20-30,000 denominations, with 270 new ones being formed each year. Virtually all of these are Protestant.

And, I'm also not Catholic, so hey.

Your welcome, Jordan. If you do have anything else you really want to know, you could PM me. I know that site has lots of historical fact than explanations, however if need you any clarification I will try to help you where I can. It'll not only help me understand my faith better, but hopefully attempt to iron out the misunderstandings. 

Also if I may add.. 

What the Pope stands for is what the church founded by Christ stood for in his time. If Jesus were alive today and stood at that balcony at St Peter's Basicilia, the world would say the exact same things as they are now."You're conservative,  the Church is going back to the dark ages."

It's hard to agree with what the Pope stands firm on, but, with regards to abortion especially, the Church teaches that it is the basic truth or absolute truth that it is wrong for any human to take a life an innocent, no matter how that soul was conceived.

As for gays, it isn't that the church denies them, I think that fact is misunderstood. It is the sin of acting on those desires that the Church denounces, just like how it is, with hetrosexual desires. It is neither asking gays to deny who they are, but to channel these passions to causes that would perhaps serve the world and those in need.

Though Pope Benedict XIV's election to the papacy hardly pleases half the world's Catholics, what we must all know is that through out time the many leaders and kings choosen are mostly the underdogs who had very little education, people who were losers, in other words. Take Simon Peter for example, he was a simple fisherman but yet he had played an important role in forming the Church and became one of the greatest saints. Even St Augustine and St Francis of Assisi.

I feel that we not only need to listen and watch, to just what the Pope is doing and saying BUT what the Spirit is saying through him, to today's world. Though, you are not a Catholic, Combat Baby, I sincerely believe that the beliefs you have are of truth and love.

^ amen to that sister

as i said before i really like him, he stands for what he believes in. ppl are mad bc they wanted a pope who will allow priests to marry, gays and lesbians to have legal marriages, etc. all he's doing is following what the bible says and he's getting so much heat for it.

what's scary is how all the predictions in the bible are starting to come true now, how ppl will be persectuted against for following Jesus and what he stands for. it seems like everythings starting to get set into place for the end to come.

and as a side note, this pope was the passed popes closest confident, so, many of the programs he established in the church were both his and josephs doings. joseph and he shared the same ideals about the catholic church, so i really dont understand why ppl think he's so uptight and stuffy. the same ones that loved john paul hate him. i don't understand that.

I think the new pope should have the chance to show what kind of man he really is. We have seen vision of him but only God knows whats inside every human being.

Most of the cardinals voted for him. I wish the people don't say bad things about him before he even has started with his burden. I think to be a pope is a heavy burden. He might be a better man than everybody think.
