That reminds me of my lazyness to unsubscribe from the church, gotta fix that, this year. Manana manana

I'll stay out for the remainder, I am no good in religion related stuff, as an anti - theist that is. I respect people for their believes but I am too anti - religion that I will end up insulting - without realising it - people.

I do know what Opus Dei is, I just wonder why you put it into the discussion

Not really. On the surface yes, its something the whole world will talk about. But past the news stories its not going to change much for anyone.

Unless they choose a lat am successor.

what do you mean? criticizing religion is very constructive. the fewer people who let someone else decide what is right and wrong, as many american catholics already do, the better off this world will be. they probably realize the pope is irrelevant.

the OP wanted to discuss the pope's resignation. criticism is a part of discussion.

There's a difference between criticizing and mocking/attacking in a way that doesn't really invite participation by those on the other side of the fence.

mockery can also be illustrative and therefore appropriate tool of criticism.
