Pope Benedict XVI is to resign on February 28 due to his “deteriorating” health.
He will be the first head of the Roman Catholic Church to resign in almost 600 years, with his departure expected to leave the post vacant for around three weeks.
The 85-year-old German’s resignation letter said: “After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry.
Get ready for the the MSM editorials calling for a Church to choose a new Pope who is softer on birth control, gay marriage, abortion, divorce… that sort of thing. Day after day, week after week, until a new Pope is appointed, the MSM will be calling for the appointment of a new Pope who is, you know, not Catholic.
