Pope Francis Makes Surprising Decision To Put On Display “St. Peter’s Bones”! Second Incongruity In 2 Days.

One day ago it was the most amazing statement that Rugby was not violent.
Then this today. As the CNN article points out, up front, this is beyond controversial. There is absolutely no basis to believe that these are the bones of St. Peter.
In reality, there is no historical or Biblical documentation or evidence that St. Peter ever came to Rome! Plenty of documentation that St. Paul did. So that alone raises questions. Why was St. Peter not mentioned if he was there along with St. Paul?
That St. Peter was the first ‘pope’, which he really wasn’t, is a tradition rather than a fact. That is known.
Yes, many, many relics are not obviously what they claim to be.
But, this, in the 21st century, is a definite test of credulity.
I had NOT expected this pope to have gone along with this.
Actually this is the 3rd VERY STRANGE thing the pope has done just this week. That “prayer of “WHY”‘ was very strange too!
Hhhhmmm! Not good.

This pope has made quite a few ‘interesting’, actually incongruous, statements about gays, abortion, God etc. I even, in this post, got a good, Catholic priest, with a doctorate from Rome in Sacred Theology, to explain how his words don’t change the Catholic doctrine. Yesterday’s remarks about asking God ‘WHY’ blew my socks away. And then there was the Gold Pins on the Pallium incident.
But today’s statement that Rugby is NOT A VIOLENT sport really takes the cake!
What is the Pope SMOKING?
I used to play Rugby — albeit just in school in Mill Hill, London, U.K. I like Rugby. If Rugby isn’t violent then the Pope isn’t Catholic!
In hindsight I now realize that we were a barbaric bunch at Mill Hill! We went out to maim and injure. But, it was a two-way street. Much later on, when I was in my 30s and had platinum private health insurance in the U.K., called BUPA, because I was a high-flying corporate executive, a doctor had both my hands X-rayed. He calls me in and says: ‘How did you do it. Every one of your knuckles has been broken at sometime in your life … some of them multiple times’. I also had a broken, unmended, bone in my right hand — which was also a Rugby injury, that I refused to have treated.
Well, don’t take my word on Rugby and violence. Kind of funny that just this year a book came out called “Rugby Violence”!
I have been worried about this pope from Day 1. Now I am getting really worried, but for different reasons.
