I won't be surprised if that shit happens soon. If anything happens, there will always be religions folks who will run around and scream that the dark anti-Christ is going to arrive very soon while months pass and nothing happens.
Yeah, I even thought that Popes won't resign too early. But most people in their old age must resign from their jobs 'cause they may be at risk.. and the Pope will have plenty of time for his wife and kids. Haha! There were some gossips that other races will have a chance, but for me as a Catholic, I'd still prefer a European Pope other than Asian (like myself) or any other. And how I wish, they could choose someone a bit younger so he can serve for more years to come, just like Pope John Paul (my favorite).

Well, he's apparently the first pope to do so in years. But either he resigns from being the pope like a guy quits his dayjob, or he dies, I still say good ridance. I don't care what position he's in, or how close to "God" he is, he's still a pedophile, he's still a quitter, and he's still an embarassement to society
Well, woop-de-fucking-doo. Now the Catholics of the world will have to worship a different old fart. Maybe the next one won't be a pedophile enabling Emperor Palpatine look-a-like. You know I heard a rumor a few years back that they chose such an old man to be the pope because they were fairly certain that the world was going to come to an end real soon anyways.
Oh no thats "terrible".^^ At least we germans can say "we were the pope" (a joke based on a german newspaper). In earnest , everyone should believe what you want, but i think the church (mainly the catholic church) is today only a relict from an old time and nothing really change when the head of them is only someone that could come from such that time. But yeah maybe they want no change, maybe they can't change something without destroy themselfes. I wish good luck to "Joseph Ratzinger " hope he can enjoy his pension^^
The information I have is that three have, previously: in 1025, 1250, 1415 and now in 2013. I am not a Christian, but I respect his decision; he knew he couldn't hack it anymore and was honest enough to say so. And now he can write a book no-one else can write: "The Man Who Used to be Pope" by Joe Ratzinger.
Actually, I do find that a cause for some respect irrespective of others disagreement I might have had with the man.
It takes an unusual mind to willingly relinquish this kind of power. To willingly accept one's waning strength and gracefully step away from power before one becomes a "propped up preserved mummy" deserves some lauding.
That is a decent video but there is much more to the story.
The Pope is a Nazi and a Zionist but both are puppets according to Albert Pike. In his letter to Mazzini Albert Pike predicted that three world wars would be used to create a satanic new world order. [link]
The question then is who the puppet master? The most likely answer is Jesuit 'Black Pope' Adolfo Nicolas Pachon [link]
This is the story that Veterans Today is running with. Pope Benedict was "fired" by the Knights of Malta whom he met with just before he resigned. If you watch the previous two videos this will make a lot more sense. [link]
Even so there are still a lot of unanswered questions.
well i heard it hasn't happened in 600 years. maybe 600 years ago that pope resigned because some bad things were going on secretly and didn't want to be apart of it. maybe this one is doing the same, or maybe the opposite
