Truman proved that anyone could become President…

Pope Benedict Ends Pontificate, Leaving Papacy Vacant



By Reuters

Pope Benedict ended his eight-year reign on Thursday, becoming the first pontiff in six centuries to resign instead of ruling for life.

The papacy became officially vacant at 8 p.m. (1900 GMT/2 p.m. ET) in keeping with the pope’s wishes when he announced his decision to resign on Feb. 11.

The yellow and white papal flag was lowered and the Swiss Guard sentries withdrew from the entrance to the papal summer residence south of Rome as the massive wooden doors of the hilltop building were closed.

The pope flew there by helicopter less than three hours earlier.

    Good riddance… a hideous criminal in a hideous, criminal organization.

    Molested innocent children around the world whose lives have been unalterably damaged by these grotesque old men in the name of God should be financially compensated through the complete liquidation of this hideous church, and those priests, bishops and popes found guilty of the act, or of protecting those that performed the act, should be sent to hard time prison.

    The whole world has gone to acting pretty crazy, I too wish for peace in your area and just wish I had a solution for those who want to rule the world and control all the people in it.
