Oh, god. OH, GOD.
If they elect this German Cardinal as Pope… the guy who was “forced into being a Hitler Youth…” and who went AWOL from the German army in 1945… (That’s at the END OF THE WAR) well… I’m going to go crazy. I just don’t know what I’m going to do. Seriously. I’ve already converted from Judasim to Catholicism. Am I going to have to go Episcopalian?
I mean, I’m down with the Holy Spirit, baby… but MAN. I am NOT going to even pretend to follow the teachings of some hyperconservative Nazi soldier… no matter WHAT kind of epiphany he’s had. If he’s had one. Someone clue me in. I’m jetting off some nervous energy from reading about this dude in the paper.
Birth control. BIRTH CONTROL. I’ve said it before: If you’re going to be Pro Life/Anti-Choice, then you sure as hell better be Really Really Reallly Pro Birth Control. If you’re not, just shut the fuck up because you’re a dangerous fucking hypocrite. And probably a classist, as well.
I’m awash in many little fears about the next Pope. And I don’t even believe in the whole Direct Messenger of God thing.
