Still with the "your pope" garbage? @Still_I_Falsify After I -just- corrected it? You're self-discrediting at this point and an outright liar.

"And since he is the pope, validly elected, this means God chose him."
...and since you've been discredited, and since you still refuse to produce ANY citations for ANY of your claims, the "De facto" conclusion is you won't because you can't.

What else is new? Yeesh you're a bore. No wonder the ladies can't stand you.

Oh, and Cardinal Ratzinger disagrees.

In 1997, when asked on Bavarian television whether or not the Spirit chooses the pope, the then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger answered: “I would not say so, in the sense that the Holy Spirit picks out the Pope…I would say that the Spirit does not exactly take control of the affair,...
--
Then the German theologian got to the heart of the matter: “There are too many contrary instances of popes the Holy Spirit obviously would not have picked!”

The man you claim is Pope today directly contradicts your claim on Papal selections. Wrap your brain around that for a bit before you go any further.

In other words, the Holy Spirit does not arrange the votes so that the best possible candidate is elected. There is no guarantee whatsoever that the choice will reflect God’s active will, though the choice of a particular man as pope obviously fits within God’s permissive will. To put the matter succinctly, the promptings of the Holy Spirit are as certainly real as they are frequently resisted.

So, no, God didn't necessarily -choose- Pope Francis. God allowed Francis to be chosen., something I've been repeating in the face of your non-stop drivel all night.

Anything else? No? Did Bozo finally sputter out on Saturday mornin"? Is he putting on his Saturday Best and going off to Novus Ordo Parish? Do yourself a favour and scoot over to the confessional before hand. You need it.

...and for God's Sake, put on a suit and tie. Even you should be able to manage that. :D

Like the official Vatican website for Canon Law perhaps? ;-) Was that one "moronic" for you, Bozo?

It's a rare thing to watch you brag about the truth while making a virtue of your ignorance and inability to support it.

"You are more Novus Ordo than a transgender polyamlorous nun."

...Said the same guy who bitterly defends Novus Ordo Mass and Novus Ordo communion in the hand... the same guy who gets downright miffed when anyone so much as sneers at the Novus Ordo. Because you take your faith so seriously, amirite?

...and then you throw "Novus Ordo" as an insult. Yeah, you've really got your position thought out here, Bozo..

You're all done except for the inevitable repeating of some more nonsense. Probably just as contradictory.

"You found the phrase "de facto" in Canon law , and that is your proof that you are right about Your Pope, lol. "

No Jimmy. It's proof YOUR claims are baseless, unsupported and wrong. It's proof YOU have been discredited and YOU need to support your claims from now own because of that. Annnnnd you won't.

"You're a great legal mind."

"You're a great legal mind."

...said the guy who just started things off with yet another failed piece of reasoning.

"I said a N.O. mass is better than no mass at all, because Jesus is still present in body and blood."

You certainly showed some respect for that Mass, didn't you? :P

"I've also said that on the hand is preferable to no communion at all."

Oh, you've said a whole lot moar, besides. ;-)

"See, I believe in transubstantiation... You don't believe in God at all. Like Your Pope."

See, that's where you're wrong and stupid and just spewing one stupid thing after another because that's all you CAN do.

He's not "my" pope. But you'll just keep repeating that, just like you did for roughly twelve hours non-stop.

Looks like you're off to another twelve.

"You're so very proud, and that's your problem."

I've earned that right and I don't especially value criticism of my character from anyone whose own is far worse than mine.

You're a liar, a charlatan, a rampantly dishonest debator -if repeating the same claims endlessly absent proof even counts as debate, You toss out drivel for obviously no other purpose than to goad. i.e. You don't believe in God at all. Like Your Pope.

"your comments are littered with superciliousness, haughtiness."

You forgot to mention snideness, flippancy, and regular mockery. Christ employed vicious, biting sarcasm and name-calling and He was without sin. So your observations, like your non-logic, aren't really supported by Scripture as "going through the motions" or any other such rot.

"And that ends in your stated belief that Bergolio is pope,"

He is.

"and that the Holy Spirit is useless, that Peter was the last pope not picked by mere men, etc."

Didn't say either of those. You just making up moar nonsense. Your claims are beyond insane at this point.

It's like you've been reduced intellectually to just two basic tactics: makin' stuff up out of thin air and repeatin' that stuff endlessly.

You're not even just a troll at this point you're joke.

...and it IS Jimbo, isn't it? Not Mike or Michael. It's Jimbo. Mistuh Jame A., to be exact.

Goes without saying what the "A." stands for. Go choke yourself, Jimbo. :D
