Cry babies, Boo hoo

I came across a message over the internet when I did a search on Karol Wojtyla yesterday: It was from France (Where now only 10% of what used to be a Catholic nation practice) I will translate:

Le serial killer Karol Wojtyla, dit Popaul-No-K-Pote, est mort aujourd'hui.
(The serial killer Karol Wojtyla, aka Popaul-No-K-Pote, died today.)

Alité depuis plusieurs jours, il aurait exprimé son désir de confesser ses crimes (notamment sa contribution majeure au développement de l'épidémie du sida) devant les cardinaux qui l'entouraient, avant d'être étouffé à l'aide d'un coussin par l'un d'entre eux.
(In bed for a number of days, he apparently expressed his desire to confess his crimes (especially his major contribution to the development of the AIDS epidemy) in front of his cardinals who surrounded him, before being smothered by a cushion by one of them.)

Radio Vatican dément l'information.
(Radio Vatican denies this information.)

D'après des sources apostoliques romaines autorisées, une pétition circulerait en Enfer : nombre de pensionnaires de ces lieux, qui ne sont pourtant pas tous des enfants de coeur, refusent de partager leurs tourments avec un si ignoble salaud.
(According to authorized roman apostolic sources, a petition is circulating in Hell: a number of pensionaries of this place, who are not all lovable themselves, refuse to share their torments with such a unnoble bastard)

Don't know if that last bit is part of the sick joke or if they really do consider themselves Catholic, God knows there are some pretty sick catholics out there...

In LaPresse de Montréal, some guy wrote in to complain:

"Si triste soit la disparition de ce pape (pour tous ceux qui l'aiment et je ne fais pas partie de ce groupe), le fait est que le malheureux aurait dû prendre sa retraite et cultiver ses roses dans le jardin du Vatican depuis des années au lieu de donner au monde ce spectacle tragique et cruel. Mais l'ambition et un désir maladif de pouvoir ont fait qu'il a voulu continuer de se tenir sur une scène qui n'était plus faite pour lui. Il sera sans aucun doute beaucoup mieux au paradis, dans son pardis... non loin d'Hollywood. Là-haut il pourra poursuivre son spectacle. Et ses admirateurs ne manqueront pas."
(As sad as the disparition of the Pope is (for those that love him and I am not part of that group), the fact is that the poor guy should have retired to cultivate roses in the Vatican years ago instead of giving the world this cruel and tragical spectacle. But ambition and a sick desire for power kept him going on a stage no longer made for him. He will no doubt be much better in Paradise, in his Paradise... not far from Hollywood. Up there he will be able to continue his show. And he will not be lacking in admirers.)

LaPresse of course only publishes these things, does not necessarily publicly agree with them, but they did have Headlines such as: "The End, Live" "Exhibitionist or Good Example?" And also there seem to be quite a few people actually blaming the Pope for dying publically, it's a disgrace, it's something private, he should have hidden, (except had he done that, someone DID note, then everyone would have ganged up on him for his secrecy, you just can't win.) But HELLO people!!! Did the Pope INVITE the media there or did they invite themselves? I am pretty sure they invited themsleves!!! What a bunch of cry-babies, if they can't handle death then they should just turn their TV sets off for a couple of days, it could only do them good. This is why I DON'T WANT TO LIVE HERE ANYMORE!!!! (And I'm not moving to France either) And on top of it all, I have to live with my DH's comments too...
