They say timing is everything. On Feb. 11, 2013, Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation, making him the first pontiff in 600 years to do so. Hours after the shocking announcement, lighting struck St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican.

Just a coincidence?

You don't need to be a weather man to know which way the wind blows when you look at things with the right eyes

If there was actually a "god" he'd certainly have it in for organized religion.
It's filled with nothing but a bunch of corrupt pigs who rip off the old and ignorant and rape the young and innocent.

As stated by a previous pope: Pius XII 1939-1958 - Pastor Angelicus (the 1st of the Angelic Shepherds). In 1945, Pope Pius XII stated, "The world is on the verge of a frightful abyss ... Men must prepare themselves for suffering such as mankind has never seen." - Are you saved by the Blood of Christ or are you not? Now is the time to make absolutely sure you are~!

According to a prophecy by a pope Malachy this is the last pope before the man of perdition (Satan) enters in the picture. Read it for yourselves:http://www.irishcentral.com/roots/St-Malachy-predicted-Pope-Benedicts-successor-will-be-last-pope-190715001.html

Big deal so lightening hit the vatican.The vatican is full of murderers( talking about the inquisition and the crusades,and the fact that they backed hitler in killing millions of innocent people) and child molesters.Every time that overly pompous moron gives a speech every catholic on the planet takes it as gospel.He is far from being holy,and the father part is laughable because the only man I would call father is the man whose loins I sprung from.

I am sure the CIA is behind it. You know, weather manipulation and all that.
