Maybe He's Busy...?

The Vatican is asking all Catholics to up the intensity of our prayers for the Holy Father, like he's Tinkerbell and if we all applaud extra-hard, the myraid diseases that God sent to afflict the Pope will cure themselves. What hypocrisy! If the Pope is sick, then surely the Pope, of all people, has to believe that's God's will.

Or maybe God's not aware that JP is croaking — I mean, he's no one important, only the Pope — and it's up to some crazy granny who gives her social security checks to Billy Graham to give God the message.

The fact is that the Pope and his big, pointy hat-wearing lackeys preach faith and blindly following Church doctrine, but now that it's time for them to put up or shut up, they're begging the world to pray for them. Well, like they say, everyone wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to do what it takes to get there.
