They should chose a younger pope to avoid this. They have to be less than 80 yrs old. I say, just choose the youngest, most qualified person.
is it just me? or is common sense not that common.

I wonder if there's another reason for this resignation, besides his health, cuz it really came out of nowhere. Maybe another scandal about to surface?

I heard his main reasons for resigning are that he feels he is not strong enough to do the job anymore. I also heard after resigning he has a large say in who his predecessor is so this may also be a reason for him doing so.

The talking points when he was selected was that they didn't want this pope to have a long tenure, as there are shifting trends in the Church where they weren't ready to promote someone who might be more laxed on issues that affect most constituents (birth control).  Usually the church is a decade or two behind popular western opinions.  The thinking may have been that when Benedict is done, we can put someone from South America in charge or a very young person, who has the perspective to bring change in Church policy that helps Catholics/the world (i.e. - shift in philosophy regarding birth control, openness to women priests, etc).  I think if this was 5 more years, they might go for that.  Seeing how it is now, they might just put in another 80 year old under the same philosophy.  But if they don't, they will go real young and we might have a 45 year old who will determine the direction for the next 40 years.

I can care less what happens to the pope. I have bigger things in my life than to care about that. I agree they should get a younger pope so they aren't afraid of fixing scandals.

Unfortunately, there is so much power in that position (that affects more than Catholics), I am actually very interested.  Who is selected as pope can have an effect on our US politics, social trends here and abroad, and can have the potential to impact our commerce and foreign policy down the road.  It does feel strange in trying to guess what this means though, when we won't know until the person starts making decisions.

Last time around when Benedict was elected there was talk of the new pope coming out of Africa because I guess that's where the Catholic church is growing the most at the moment.  It would be interesting to see if it happens this time.

that is crazy, it came completely out of left field. I wouldnt be obliged to see a younger pope, but then again im not catholic. I wouldnt know how the process goes, but i do plan to follow it closely.
It comes and it goes, get it while it lasts.

If the official story "he's 85 and doesn't think he can fulfill his duties anymore" is true then I think it's good he decided to resign.  I hope this is the whole story though.

I agree.  Sometimes people in positions of power do not know when to step down.  In this case if he knows he cannot fulfill the duties, please, by all means step down.

They should go for a younger (under age 60) pope, someone who's a little more in tune with the world as it is today.  I don't know what the rules are for the pope election but the Catholic church needs to join us in the rest of the world, it is 2013, not 1913.  Priests should be allowed to marry and women should be allowed to become priests.

Pretty cool that lightning struck St Peters Basilica hours after the Pope resigned.

Not sure how often this happens, but strange coincidence nonetheless.

It should be a good indication that the church should be appointing candidates with more emphasis on sound physical and mental health. Would you Americans want to elect an 80-year-old president?

If he was a bad ass I might.  The Cardinals last time around voted for this dude precisely because he was old and was likely to croak at any minute.  They didn't want to have to wait around for another 30 years to elect a new pope like last time.  The Cardinals are power-hungry folk it would seem.

That wouldn't surprise me at all.  The upper echelon of Catholic leadership has been notorious for covering up and downplaying sexual abuse and other despicable acts.

yes, because the shit totally has not hit the fan as of yet.  class action child molestation lawsuits are a dime a dozen these days.

HERESY!

and unacceptable. I must call you out.

Senator Palpatine was his name before he was a sith lord.  As a sith lord, he is known as Darth Sidious.

with what he's doing, i wouldn't be surprised at all given his lack of adapting to current standards. unlike john paul, he hasn't exactly demonstrated a whole lot of compassion OR regard for sciences.

If the pope actually tried to have an influence maybe christianity would not be getting challenged like it is... I'm a protestant, but the pope is the living leader of christianity he needs to be active.

he was active, the problem came from what he said AFTER that

eg. 
have a bible vs have a condom, to the africans and he didn't exactly come down on the priest sexual abuse cases...sure he denounced it but he didn't do anything to investigate

it was his stubbornness and conservative views that put them where they are now.

Regarding the resignation precedence...

The last time a pope left the papacy by resignation rather than dying was the year 1415.  I am still trying to wrap my mind around that.  

They apparently need to build a place for him in the vatican now, so he cannot be a public figure in society as a "former pope" which is an "information age" reality that they couldn't have even thought about the last time this happened.

^yeah, one of the bigger problems is that he still carries weight with his words as the "former pope", it could divide them with a "more conservative half" and a slightly "more progressive" one...unless the next one is merely a puppet, then i cant say ;D

he needs to fade to irrelevancy...hopefully, it's what he wants too

The thing I am surprised at is that they aren't going to pick a new one until late march, even though he is resigning in a week or so.

from CNN.com:
Scandal is threatening to eclipse the poignancy and pageantry of Benedict XVI's historic final days as pope.

Vatican officials were already trying Monday to swat down unsavory claims by Italian publications of a brewing episode involving homosexual priests, male prostitutes and blackmail when news broke that Benedict had moved up the resignation of a Scottish archbishop linked over the weekend by a British newspaper to inappropriate relationships with priests.

Benedict announced two weeks ago that he will step down as pope Thursday, becoming the first pontiff to leave the job alive in 598 years.

Shop smart... Shop S-Mart.

he'll continue to wear white, be called "pope emeritus" and live in Vatican City.

What can possibly go wrong??
