    Wait, what? You really wanted to go there? :eek: :eek:

    I suspect when Pope George Ringo I takes office one of his first directives from on high is going to be, "no priest, nun, or any member of the RCC clergy is EVER to make ANY humorous reference to bad things being done to children. Got that? EVER. Pope GR I, OUT."


    But, spartys gotta sparty.

    I had a bit of banter with him. He responded like a guy who was just trying to make a (really bad) joke.

    Think the fans freaking out over the children thing are reading into it a bit too much. But yes, he could have been smarter with the wording.

    I think honesty in the clergy is refreshing.

    Uh no, under the circumstances it is not possible to "read a little bit too much" into this.

    This would be like some Penn State priest saying something like, "we're gonna take 'em in the shower room and give 'em a good scrubdown."

    Catholic priests should be under goddamn iron-fisted orders that children getting abused is a subject you never ever ever ever make a joke about.

    Otherwise, I am sure we could all have some real hoots over the jokes of how the "Virgin Mary" was nothing of the sort (or even close). Har de harr harr harrr.

    Thought for sure this thread was about Donovan McNabb.

    And Canseco tweeted his theory of gravity over the past 24 hours.
