    The next Pope will be named Peter

    Good man. He stuck to the traditions of the Catholic Church and personally applied himself to the modern world. First Pope to use Social Media!!

    Only if those traditions include pedophilia, rape and cover ups.

    He was in a position to change the church's stance on tolerating priests who violate kids. Nope... business as usual.

    Those who condone and cover up the crimes of their organizations are equally at fault, as if they had done the crime themselves.

    Good riddance.

    He wants to cleanse his soul before he dies. Something he can't do while in the Vatican. That, or he wants to go fishing.

    the pope is fishing
  • Striker 2013/02/11 17:15:02
    I couldn't care less. The world would probably be better off if the Vatican evaporated.
  • rbeas 2013/02/11 17:13:32
    I smell something rotten in Rome.
  • Horace 2013/02/11 16:37:07
    He is an old man who has one of the most demanding and important jobs in the world, its no wonder he's burned out. I wish him all the best and I wish all the best for the faith.

    I am not Catholic, so it has no personal effect on me.

    But I do respect the Pope for putting the needs of the Catholic Church before himself, at a time when he feels his health prevents him from serving the Church.

    I know little about him except remarks here and there in the paper. He is in his mid 80's. I have no idea how well his mental or physical health is, but that could be a reason for his exit.
  • Max 2013/02/11 15:07:29
    He was looking pretty frail every time I would see him on TV. It's a good decision for him to retire.
  • beachbum 2013/02/11 15:06:23
    Very surprised. Wonder if the next pope is the last pope, as predicted back in the 1500's?

    God's will be done. Time for this paedophile protector to leave and dodder down the road to Purgatory.

    His choice. Most people do know when it is time to retire, and maybe God told him his time as Pope was up.
  • ☆ElenaDiamond☆ 2013/02/11 14:04:33
    He was never meant to be pope. The Lord has spoken.

    I never liked him anyway, even worse after that HBO documentary
  • ☆ElenaD... C-ZAR™ ... 2013/02/12 13:49:40
    I honestly believe he is evil. I have never disliked a pope or the Catholic Church. However, I feel that Ratzinger was ambitious and responsible for helping the church hide the sickness of child abuse and rape. I am glad he is leaving.

    I wonder did they think by sweeping it under the rug, that the problem would go away?
    They should have kicked the Priests out of the Priesthood, keeping them only makes it look like the Church cares more about pedophiles than protecting young children
  • ☆ElenaD... C-ZAR™ ... 2013/02/12 21:18:34
    If they would've made the penalties very severe in the beginning, this could've been prevented. Instead they made it ok and even some got promoted. Sick.

    I wish Congress had the same presence of mind that the Pope does.
  • Tropiceagle33 2013/02/11 13:55:48
    no comment, going neutral
  • Drummerboy 2013/02/11 13:55:44

    except that the methodist minister's congregation is 80 people and the pope's is 1 billion.

    Have to agree with Arizona's comment, he defended the homosexual priests that molested the children, that made him as immoral as those who prey on the children
  • Arizona1950 2013/02/11 13:14:25
    He should have resigned years ago ... in fact, in my opinion, he should never have been seated as Pope and removed back in 2010 after he said "Child rape isn't that bad, was normal back in his day"

  • zbacku Arizona... 2013/02/11 14:51:50
    As one that has not followed what Pope's say to closely, that is indeed one of the most repugnant and unreal statements by anyone let alone it being the 'high and mighty' Pope.

    Sickening beyond belief.
  • Arizona... zbacku 2013/02/12 01:53:56
    I don't know which is more sickening ... saying it or choosing to say it during Christmas a time when the religioius come together to celebrate the birth of Christ.
