Tony Blair for Pope?? Can't Post or Reply Privately

Will born again Catholic Tony Blair throw his hat in the ring
after Benedict's resignation today?

No skeletons in his cupboard Tongue

Strange resignation as there can't be many [popes] who
have not died in office. First since 15th century apparently.

Cynical me says a story re his past may soon break.....

Could Mr Blair not be Pope, Archbishop of Canterbury and Chief Rabi, save a few bob if he did all three jobs, for all I care he could be leader of every faith on earth.

I heard Harry Redknapp is already packing his bags after the Pope's sudden resignation.

Deceased....but a few have been beatified.

Just one from England, who was, apparently, the
fore father of the founder of the Breakspear Brewery.

No, you're forgetting the doctrine of Papal Infallibility. They are all knowing and always right. I'd better tell the missus there's a job opportunity for her. Tongue

What odds Charlie boy has been pointing out to his mum that Benedict has resigned because he felt he was too old and no longer up to the job, when he's a year younger than the Queen?

Re: [Andrelux] Tony Blair for Pope?? [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

It's a relief that this bloke has resigned, because if he had died in office all the following weekend's football matches in Italy would have been called off as a mark of respect. That's what happened when the last one died, and I hope no-one on this forum had booked a trip to Italy to watch football because they would have had a wasted trip. Hopefully the next pope will be 25 and I won't have to worry about him dying during my lifetime.

By the way, when the last one died (in 2007 or 2008 I think) there was a work colleague who was a very devout Catholic. So devout in fact, that when the death was announced she immediately booked a flight to Rome and spent much of the time there in the public area at the funeral crying. And all for a man who probably hated women.
She happened to speak to a journalist from the UK who was there and as a result she got a mention in the 'Guardian' the following Saturday, being described as "Bridgette (surname) a civil servant from South Mimms"

I thought South Mimms was a service station???!!! The truth needs to be told... is there a secret underground bunker underneath South Mimms service station, staffed with civil servants busily controlling our lives? Secretly? Or am I just being paranoid? And if so, why?

Incidentally, I am over 25, I was baptised a Roman Catholic (to my eternal shame, although in my defence I didn't have any say in the matter), I haven't studied canon law all that closely, but I believe that I am papabile (I'd need to be a priest to be a pope, but I believe that can be fast tracked, there are precedents).

Anyway, only cardinal priests under the age of 80 can vote, so if there are any of you who visit this site, please PM me so that I can present my manifesto to you. A pope with an interest in English non-league football, who has never taken an interest in small children could both reform the Holy, Catholic and Apostolic chuch and sort out the non league pyramid.

So, to any cardinals out there, vote for me. If you're worried about Marian doctrine, don't worry, I'll issue an encyclical. If you're concerned about step 7 in Yorkshire, ditto (that'd show them). And I've got some contacts about the finance, in case you're worried.

Papal interference into non-league football sounds like a ruse for launching attacks on the koran. And whether step 5 and 6 clubs should be forced to issue one....

Haven't the Crusades taught us anything??

Nice one mate, but just to avoid any confusion, South Mimms was where our friend Bridgette lived, not the name of the office (or secret bunker) where she worked. There is a village there as well as a service station.

My candidacy will address all those issues, and obviously be inclusive of all beliefs (although clearly, if you are not a member of the one, true and apostolic church, then you've got some work to do).Were I to be, by the grace of God, elevated to be the successor of St Peter, then I will be ecumencal and inclusive, but that only goes so far. I would set the limits at Sussex.

As for your possibly rhetorical question about the Crusades, well yes. They've taught us a lot. What, exactly, I can't tell you until I've examined the records of previous popes, although I believe that it involves judicious application of suntan lotion.

Notwithstanding, go out and speak to your cardinal friends (we all have at least one friend who's a cardinal, after all, many of us more than one). The future of the Pyramid depends on it.

Go out and prepare for papacy!!!

I would concede that some individual popes may not personally hate women, but what cannot be denied is that there is a lot of misogyny in the Catholic Church, as well as in other religions. When the issue of women priests came up a few years ago, the Vatican said that the reason why they were opposed was that Jesus Christ had chosen only men to be his apostles. A flimsy excuse at best, and it is tempting to draw the conclusion that Jesus was a misogynist himself. (By the same logic, he was probably also a homophobic bigot.)
