FIRST POPE IN 600 YEARS TO RESIGN - POOR HEALTH A FACTOR
The Catholic Church Will Have Another Chance to Get It Right. 2/12/2013
On the matrix below the axis term is POPE. At the same absolute skip is RESIGNATION. With it in the area with a white background is an ELS of the short form of the Hebrew year (5773/2013). Also at an ELS is EDOM (implying Rome) and GAY (homosexual). Odds against all this being in the area with the white background were about 477 to 1 with RESIGNATION at a special case skip (+-1 or the absolute skip of the axis term) being most important and EDOM least significant (being almost certain to be there). When the size of the matrix is expanded from the white background (702) letters to include the area with the light blue background too for a total of 1,218 letters, we pick up the words VATICAN and SICK.
STATISTICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE MATRIX. At best, the section of the matrix with the white background seems predictive that a pope would resign this year. As per my standard protocol, no statistical significance is assigned to the axis term, here POPE at its 6th lowest skip in Torah. The most significant a-priori term is RESIGNATION. Before downgrade for the rank 6 of the axis term, there was about 1 chance in 412 that it would be at a special case skip on the smaller (white background) matrix. This drops to 1 chance in 250 for the full matrix. None of the other terms were at a special case skip, so they could only be evaluated via Roffman Skip Formula and Skip Tables. On the smaller matrix the year of the resignation (5773/2013) appeared against odds of about 6.75 to 1. EDOM was virtually certain to there. It essentially added no real value. Ditto for HOMO. After downgrade for ELS rank 6 of the axis term, the smaller matrix appeared against odds of about 477 to 1. On the larger matrix the word SICK (one of two synonyms checked for it) added no real value (which means that its presence here does not necessarily support health as a reason for resignation). Only VATICAN was of interest, appearing against odds of about 6.77 to 1. The final value of the full matrix was that it appeared against odds of about 686 to 1.
A PERSONAL NOTE ABOUT THIS POPE. John Moody, Executive Vice President, Executive Editor at Fox News and a former Vatican correspondent and Rome bureau chief for Time magazine wrote of Pope Benedict XVI that “he never had a chance.” He goes on to say that,
“Benedict faced nearly impossible odds, even before he was elected. Joseph Ratzinger -- his given name -- was already white-haired and stooped when he became pope. He was a German of the World War II generation, and as a boy had served, involuntarily, as a member of the Hitler Youth. His last job in Rome as Cardinal Ratzinger was to head the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith – the branch of the Vatican charged with enforcing dogma and rooting out dissent. For that, he was dubbed The Chief Inquisitor and The Rottweiler.”
“On his first visit to the U.S. as pope, Benedict offered contrite apologies for the Church’s ham-handed treatment of the U.S. church’s sex scandal involving its priests. Even the pope’s humble mien did not satisfy some, who pronounced him cold and unfeeling toward the plight of victims of clergy abuse.”
Frankly, any man that homosexually rapes a boy should not expect to get off withjust a contrite apology, or transfer to another church. Such men should at the least be castrated. The death sentence also does not seem out of line. Instead, Catholicism has allowed itself to become the home of the perverts, the champion of help of Nazi war criminals. The name Ratzinger, especially for a German who wore the swastika in World War 2, all too quickly conjures up images of the Ratlines used by the Vatican to help Nazis escape prosecution. This pope was not a man of God. Rather, he was a man of Hitler who chose to serve him rather than resist him, as we would expect a man chosen to be pope to do.
Like the rest of the world I have a lot of respect for this man’s predecessor, Pope John Paul II. With him I felt both hope and gratitude after he allowed the Catholic baptism of my older son (now an Orthodox rabbi) to be annulled, although it did require a threatened law suit and Release from Liability to make the historic action happen. But with Ratzinger, I have never felt anything but contempt. Good riddance to him. We can only pray that he will be replaced by a true man of God. The Catholic Church is full of them. You'll find them filling the pews each Sunday and holiday. They are most often married. But of those who refuse to have a wife and for those who prohibit men of the church to be married, you'll likely find homosexual perversion. The rest of Christianity figured this out a long time ago. so did the rabbis of Judaism, who will tell you that the first commandment in the Bible is to be fruitful and multiply, something that pedophile priests will find quite difficult to do, at least until we perfect human cloning. A legitimate, mature Orthodox rabbi is a married man. Catholicism is an ancient offspring of our religion. It would do well to follow the Orthodox Jewish lead on this issue. The prohibitions against homosexual conduct are well defined in the Torah, which forms the first part of a Catholic Bible. Any legitimate Church should do more than pay lip service to the lesson of Sodom and Gomorrah.
