Is the pope a credible expert on what constitutes reality?

On the eve of his visit to Cuba, the pope said that “It is evident today that Marxist ideology as it had been conceived no longer responds to reality.”

Should we really be getting lectures on what constitutes reality from someone who worships an imaginary figure who supposedly tells him what to do? It would be as absurd as a supposedly lifelong celibate laying down rules on contraception and sexuality. Hey, wait a minute…

    For clarity – That was answering the question:

    Religion almost by definition is for people who have a hard time with “reality.”

    The old geezer seems to drift further and further away from reality, and chasing away millions of Catholics in the process.

    I wonder how long before he suddenly succumbs to a mysterious and fatal illness?

    He’s been doing great with the ironic statements lately. He earlier said that people should avoid materialism while he lives in his house-that-is-a-city.

    Yes, or rather I would say he is a credible indicator.

    Take the opposite of what he says, and you probably have it correct.

    My wife would tell me I shouldn’t make a joke (because I’m bad at humor) about the pope liking to pontificate.

    Which reality are you concerned with?

    IMO, the only two things the Pope is an expert on are institutionalized hypocrisy and the systematic protection of child rapists.

    leobutch @ # 9 – You misunderestimate His Popiness, who also seems to exercise some expertise in money laundering.

    And his wardrobe is divine.

    He’s also an expert on condoms and AIDS.

    I think it is the ideal garment to hide the excitement they feel when they see children.

    It’s worse than that. He doesn’t just worship an imaginary figure. He wanders the world in a dress and a funny hat saying crazy things because the imaginary man in the sky told him to.

    I quote from the instructions that came with my Irony meter:

    “Exposing your irony meter to pronouncements by the Pope is not considered fair wear and tear and will void your warranty”

    Sproinggggg!! Damn – there goes another one.
