Why Jesus could never be the pope

His Lordship

The catholic faith has a pope.  No one else wants one in the christian church.  Funny how Catholics call themselves Catholics and others as Christians. But Jesus, he couldn’t be elected pope.

For one, he would never be caught wearing those robes.  He preached against robes.  I talked about how the high and mighty Jewish clerics wore those robes, with the grand tassels.  I like tassels, but on curtains.

pope mobileJesus was the son of a carpenter and learned the trade himself.  He has calloused hands.  No popes wear little white gloves  have baby soft hands.  He was too dirty from walking the streets ministering to the world.  The pope doesn’t even know how to heal anyone.  He doesn’t have the power of God on him.  No mantle, just a high collar made of mink. Jesus would be exclude from talking to the sick, the lepers, the poorest of the poor .

He certainly wouldn’t get in the limo and travel the world to hang with the rich and famous.  Jesus would be down on the street, not up in the Vatican perch.  The Catholics worship the pope in earnest   Kiss his ring when they have a chance, but the pope doesn’t wash the populace’s feet, nor eat meals with them.

Jesus had no fortune either.  The popedom is worth — according to Time magazine, Bankers’ best guesses about the Vatican’s wealth put it at $10 billion to $15 billion.

Judas carried the purse for Jesus.  The pope has billions at his disposal.

“The Vatican has large investments with the Rothschilds of Britain, France and America, with the Hambros Bank, with the Credit Suisse in London and Zurich. In the United States it has large investments with the Morgan Bank, the Chase-Manhattan Bank, the First National Bank of New York, the Bankers Trust Company, and others. The Vatican has billions of shares in the most powerful international corporations such as Gulf Oil, Shell, General Motors, Bethlehem Steel, General Electric, International Business Machines, T.W.A., etc. At a conservative estimate, these amount to more than 500 million dollars in the U.S.A. alone.”

Jesus said catch a fish and pay my taxes.  The pope may be the richest man in the world — his (or should I say the Catholic church) holdings aren’t all public either.  He is at least in the top hundred, right.  Jesus had them catch a fish, pull a coin out and pay his tax — give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and give to God what is God’s.

The pope lives a life of luxury and Jesus cooked fish when he could, gathered bread after the meal, went 40 days without, and drank lots of water.

Jesus said what we do to one of these in his name will have an award for us in heaven.  He spoke allegorically about a poor man named Lazarus and his dying and going to heaven where a rich man shows up and is said to show up and ask God to be able to warn his rich brothers of their coming fate.  The man doomed to be pope faces the same fate.

They give their whole soul to be rich and powerful.  If Jesus showed up at their door, he would be tasered, arrested, sentenced and killed — just like he was before.

Jesus hung with the sinners, the sick, the poor and not with anyone who would be made pope.

Is History Funny?

We have all heard the expression “history repeats itself.” And so we also know that human beings have a tendency to forget harmful and even wicked events. We bury them. And once we bury the history, do we forget it? It struck me today that when Jerry Lewis died, people start talking about the film […]

Of Perfecting the Human Genome

Of Perfecting the Human Genome

What do we do when we’re all physically and mentally perfect? Congratulate ourselves on eradicating the need to help each other?  Shouldn’t everyone fend for themselves?  Is human society evolving or turning neanderthal? It’s always best to start a philosophical piece with questions. How perfect is the human race today?  We still have a world […]

Quesalupa Cheesy Breaking News

Convenience Foods People are about convenience foods, and now it seems that fat cats who own the news marketplace are about serving up news that is just as cheesy.

The Trash Economy

In the trash economy, they even pay you for picking up trash. You get fully state benefits, medical, and retirement. All you have to do is vote! The state will give you all you need to live in one handy-dandy, little white-plastic shopping bag. It’s all about the taxes. Without a balanced approach, states are […]

America the oligarchy: Cheating for the rich

Ever since I was a kid, I hated the idea of cheating. I didn’t like cheating because cheating made competition null and void. When someone cheated, they were usually a bully type of person. I suspect that’s the same today. People who are really highly competitive, and love to grind down opponents tend to want […]
