POPE hijacks a country

A Guy who likes to wear pointy hats, shiny shoes, and gaudy dresses, hijacks American TV and the whole world goes ape-shit. It is kind of funny how people so easily defer to other people - for whatever reason - and if enough of them do that, it creates a "ground swell", and today, there are Billions with a B who will instantly go ape-shit if given a chance. What can you really say about such people...? That they are blessed thereby? Or, that they are demonstrably clueless, and perhaps even somewhat idiotic? That would be my bet. Having fallen for another person's "schtick" - by whatever name it goes, from Scientology, to Catholicism, and everything in between - does NOT seem to be the way to "Greater Knowledge", "Higher Consciousness", or "Expanded Being" but a deeper level of delusion, and belief in fantasy ... but then the Deluded LOVE company, and what a company America is (and many other countries, it would seem.)

Obviously, the above was a slanted viewpoint, and "Obviously, from a NON-Catholic, or angry, disgruntled EX-Catholic" some might suggest, but that is a cheap shot. To them I would say, "Use that gooey stuff filling the five-inch gap between your ears, and SEE if you can SEE my point here, because I can absolutely SEE your (and all the others so "deluded" - if we can use that term) point of view." Would you have the same response - and I mean SAME, no difference in any appreciable way - to some clerk behind the counter at the grocery store, or a cashier behind the counter at the fast-food joint?" The only acceptable answer, of course, is "No, of course not." but then you would drag out all the reasons for this difference. But I am not buying it. Hey, even Mr. Pope in Pointy hats, and shiny shoes, can do it (or appears to, anyway) so why not YOU (or anybody)? It is to THIS QUESTION that people everywhere should consider, most seriously, with that gooey stuff, along with thousands of other questions and ideas that haunt men's minds.

Consider, if you will (if you even can) WHAT does the Pointy hatted guy know, understand, teach, that any adult human with at least a normally functioning brain and body (not so thoroughly damaged or corrupted that thinking and feeling is no longer at the adult human level) can't know, understand, and teach - if s/he has a mind to do that? But then, considering that "Either you get this, or you do not - and therefore probably CAN not" - why would s/he set about "teaching this stuff" to others WHO SHOULD BE ABLE TO KNOW IT ON THEIR OWN ANYWAY? At best, really, a person becomes a "reminding factor" at certain times, places, venues, circumstances where someone else could reasonably be expected to REMEMBER for themselves that which they have just been reminded. If everybody, adult and normally functioning, with all their "wits" in tact, were "Walking Buddhas" (for that is what I like to call such people) what need would there be for Religions, Philosophies, Teachings AND Gurus, Masters, Sages AND Pointy hatted authority figures? NONE, I say. NONE.

Minor Update 6pm New York Time
- Madison Square Garden -
Mr. Pope celebrates mass for the World at large - and there are probably millions, or some such, who, not being Catholic, have never seen such a spectacle - and it certainly brings chills, and thrills to the human beings within earshot, and especially eyeshot, and most especially to those IN THE ROOM! No shit. But the question people do not bother to consider is this: How is it, that I am reacting to this spectacle? And precisely in which ways - if any - does it differ from a rock concert by your FAVORITE Rock God or Goddess? ("We both wear dresses") And where do you feel it, and how do you react to it, and how much of it is INTRINSIC and how much of it is simply an add-on? Tradition, Ritual, History, Belief, etc., etc., all have something to do with this, of course, but if you can separate all of that (which is an add-on - babies and very young children know NOTHING about it) from the Being In The Room experiencing just the EVENT-in-question, it is possible to discover "SECRETS" about human nervous-system functioning that could be, let us say, USEFUL if not damn near BENEFICIAL, and not just for yourself alone, but for the World at large. 
Post Script: for those who thought all of this was just a "negative rant" against something or other, it certainly was NOT, Okay? I would make the same statements about ANY Religious personage (authority figure) who presided over hundreds of Billions, with a B, dollars in land, buildings, property, and untold (and unknown to the rest of the world) treasures consisting of objects, gold and other things - A Great Hoard to be sure - and rather than just converting the Whole Damn Booty into Food and spendable cash, immediately if not centuries ago, and proceeding to spread the entire world with all of it, particularly to the poorest in the world, the "exalted" authority figure keeps the dream/fantasy (Opiate of the Masses) ongoing, with absolutely NO LET-UP, even to the point of trying to extend and expand control over others, by modifying and modulating the "schtick" so as to attract even more people into the fold. Actually, in the world today, the Pope is the primary example on Earth... I can think of no others, so... Mr. Pope, please do the RIGHT THING for once in your sorry, sorry excuse for a life on Earth... Okay?

To be clear: all of this - top to bottom - was a POSITIVE message for those who can hear it - the rest can't and probably never will. It is this: YOU TOO can be a Walking Buddha, if you can learn to, and practice the art of, SEPARATING fiction from reality, lies from truth, stories from facts - which means, engage your brain, all parts of your brain, even those parts that are now quite dormant and start Thinking without Imagination clouding your every thought.
