Last night, as we were lying in bed waging a losing battle against insomnia we read an AP news story on our iPhone about the former Pope John Paul II being on the fast track to sainthood.
As all but the schmucks know, Pope John Paul II, the former head of the Catholic Child-Molesters Church know, suffered from Parkinson’s disease in his last years, the ravages of which made it impossible to discern what he was saying or trying to say.
Now comes the ridiculous news that John Paul II is on a fast-track to sainthood for, don’t laugh now, curing a nun of Parkinson’s disease. 😉
Somebody, please explain this to us: If this bigoted Polack Pope could cure a nun’s debilitating Parkinson’s after his death why couldn’t he do the same for himself when he was alive (at least, that way we wouldn’t have the current Nazi Pope Benedict XVI of condoms aggravate AIDS fame).
Helllooo, we’re waiting for an answer.
By the way, here’s the excerpt from the AP story on the Nun’s ‘miraculous’ Parkinson’s cure:
Sister Marie Simon-Pierre, who works at a Paris maternity clinic, told reporters in a rare appearance Monday that she felt “reborn” on waking June 3, 2005 after she had prayed for healing to John Paul.
“There was a new strength inside me, and my body was rediscovering its vitality and fluidity,” Simon-Pierre, appearing in good health, told reporters in the southern French city of Aix-en-Provence.
The 49-year-old nun — who has largely been shielded from the media — said she still sometimes talks to John Paul.
“For this news conference, I told him to stay right beside me!” said Simon-Pierre, who appeared smiling and wearing a white habit at the news conference.
Pope Benedict XVI has set May 1 as the date for his predecessor’s beatification, a step toward possible sainthood.
Church authorities have studied Simon-Pierre’s cure and determined it was inexplicable and due to the intercession of John Paul, who also suffered from Parkinson’s. Benedict approved the miracle last week, paving the way for the beatification.
Last year, there were some questions about whether the nun’s original diagnosis was correct. But in a statement Friday, the Congregation for the Causes of Saints said Vatican-appointed doctors had “scrupulously” studied the case and determined that her cure had no scientific explanation.
And this nun Marie Simon-Pierre says she still talks to a dead man a.k.a John Paul II.
Yeah, right! We’re also talking to Alexander the Great and Catherine the Great and Ivan the Terrible every day as we respond to our readers’ ‘informed’ comments.
In a sane world, we’d call the soft in the head twit Marie Simon-Pierre a loony and provide her some badly needed psychiatric assistance. But the Catholic Child-Molesters Church relies on her rants to put John Paul II on the fast-track to sainthood.
Just so you know, dementia is one of the effects of advanced Parkinson’s disease. And following from recent weird behavior we think the Catholic Child-Molesters Church and its Vatican masters are suffering from advanced Parkinson’s.
Who says all the idiots live only in India or that the nut cases are to be found only among the la ilaha il Allah Muslims.
We tell y’all, religion (every single one) has made monkeys of 6.8 billion out of the world’s 6.9 billion people.
