Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Pope resignation shows crisis in Catholic Church, European Civilization

Over six centuries, many popes have grappled with terminal illness, and doubtless with despair. Ratzinger’s narrative seems to be that, since he lacked the courage to fire the most corrupt cardinals of the curia, the only alternative was to fire himself. Despite the chloroform being offered to the faithful by some commentators, this is no profile in courage.

The Roman popes claim to be the successors of St. Peter and thus the representatives of Christ on earth, but this claim has a hard time coexisting with papal resignations. Either the Pope is the choice of the Holy Spirit, or he is simply a bureaucratic administrator or executive who can quit or be forced out if things are not going well - like a French prime minister under the Fourth Republic, or an Italian premier it today. Gregory XII could justify his resignation with the need to put an end to the Great Schism. Ratzinger’s motivation is still not entirely clear.  PressTV
