VATICAN CITYThe Italian Newspaper La Rupubblica is reporting today that a member of the Vatican Curia confirmed to them that, barring a shocking upset, the former head of the Los Angeles Diocese Cardinal Roger Mahony has all but locked up his spot as the Catholic Churchs 266th Bishop of Rome. An anonymous member of the Curia has revealed to us that the gay lobby working within the Vatican is now lobbying for Cardinal Mahony to succeed Benedict. They believe he is best suited for the job, a reporter for La Repubblica, Luigi Rossi, told reporters. When we asked the Curia member how they were progressing, he told us that Mahonys pretty much got this Pope thing in the bag, and that the only question that remained was what name he would be taking. Members of the Curia unanimously believe that Mahony can fix the mess in the Church just as he did the mess in Los Angeles. Basically, if he runs things just the same as he ran things in the L.A. diocese, as well as the way he ran his annual Los Angeles Religious Congress, the Church should be just fine
like the Episcopalians. At press time Mahony has sent a message to his twitter followers reading, Yup, got this Pope thing on lock #JP3WeLoveThee?
Had me laughing in the first half ~ pretty good
Egads that is a scary, scary thought. Catholic LA resident here. I would rather spit on his shoes, than support anything he does. Such a a scumbag weasel. /rant
He would definitely be a Peter the Roman if elected.
So glad this was only satire.
Somebody should post that famous pic of Mahony blasting everyone with invisible cosmic rays and everyone blasting him back as he hovers above like Galactus. I always thought that pic was like a Jack Kirby comic come to life, ‘Ego the Living Mahony.’
I looked but couldn't find it. I found another one that fits this satirical thread, though....
I’m too dumb to post pics, but here is an old thread where one can behold the classic Kirbyesque cosmic battle showcased in Marvel Team-up # 10 :
Pope Bruce I?
Here you go (and you have FReepmail):
Why would you say this about a Cardinal in your church?
Do you know any of his past history in LA?
If you did, you might know the answer.....LOL!
Sure, he’s a scandal... but he is a tolerated scoundrel who still is a Cardinal.
Elect me Pope and I’ll fix that fast. I’t be Mr. Mahoney.
The Church is peril as long as Mahoney’s part of it.
