Pope Benedict XVI Resignation: Celebrities React on Twitter

Pope Benedict XVI sent shockwaves throughout the Roman Catholic Church—and the global faith community at large—after announcing today that he would be resigning as pontiff on Feb. 28 due to health reasons, the first pope to step down since 1415.

The 85-year-old's stunning decision—mitigated in large part by what he said was his deteriorating health and inability to fulfill the leadership tasks demanded of him—has fired up the Twitterverse, as celebs weigh in on the pontiff's momentous, controversial decision.

Here's what they had to say:

My sister said she read somewhere he wanted to do some changes in the church and someone didn't like it so now he conveniently wants to resign.

a lot of these "people" really had no reason to twitter.

they must feel like it was an obligation so they just wrote whatever.
sandvich 11th-Feb-2013 10:51 pm (UTC)
Nobody ever has a reason to tweet, tbh.

I bet there's a shitstorm going on inside the Vatican right now.
megedeborch 11th-Feb-2013 10:48 pm (UTC)
My only concern is - what will happen with Gänswein now? And my 'the thorn birds' related thoughts I'm always having when seeing him next to Benedict.
chidarkcy 12th-Feb-2013 12:05 am (UTC)
He better not follow Benedict to the monastery...

deevee45 12th-Feb-2013 01:20 am (UTC)
Wow, his hair cut is great--I wonder if he gets it done at the Papal barber?

There should be a rule that attractive men cannot join the church.

Colin Quinn: ' Hey, here's a crazy idea. HOW ABOUT AN IRISH POPE? We kept the Chuch doctrine like the Italians never did. #nomoreitalians #irishpope.com"

i don't know who this is but someone please inform him that the last 2 popes were not italian

An incredibly unfunny former SNL castmember. He had the worst run of Weekend Update.
mistress_f 11th-Feb-2013 11:09 pm (UTC)
i didn't know such thing existed. there's a lot of shit they should be coming at tbh
grammaire 11th-Feb-2013 11:08 pm (UTC)
Colin Quinn is garbage. I think I saw him do standup once. (I can't even remember, that's how much he sucks)
cressesgirl 11th-Feb-2013 11:10 pm (UTC)
He's being facetious. His entire twitter is sarcastic.

_xxtom 11th-Feb-2013 10:49 pm (UTC)
I wonder what he did (or didnt do) in order for the Church to tell him to GTFO (and you know his ass didn't just 'quit'). .
Everyone involved is fucking sick. SMH. Pedophiles and enablers.

good he better be the last one
ellaellaeheheh 11th-Feb-2013 10:52 pm (UTC)
I hope the next one is from latin america tbh.
georgie_georgie 11th-Feb-2013 10:52 pm (UTC)
The next Pope might be Canadian.
bebe003 11th-Feb-2013 10:57 pm (UTC)
Pretty sure he's the top contender with the Ghanian Cardinal a close second.
georgie_georgie 11th-Feb-2013 11:03 pm (UTC)
I hope it happens. A non-european Pope will be a nice change.
tine_marie 11th-Feb-2013 11:00 pm (UTC)
I read that! And it would be amazing, tbh.

As a Canadian, I'd love for there to be a Canadian Pope. Unfortunately, from what I know, Ouellet is extremely conservative (for example, he says abortion is a “moral crime,” even in the case of rape).

I don't know what the other options are (probably the same), but ehhhhh. I'm not a fan.

I didn't even know you could resign from being pope tbh.
