Let's get real here! First of all he's the Pope and to include him with the likes of Sarah Palin and Spitzer is just plain myopic. Yes he's old and I do believe his actions speak louder than any words. He understands that he's not capable.
I think we need to do some critical and associative thinking here people.
ok, none of the above 11 people can even come close to comparing with the pope.
Agreed -Pope stepping down is bigger than an entertainer, etc. I was more so trying to make a point that Barry's retirement at the top of his game, was more shocking than Bjorn, or some of the other people mentioend in the article - and thought others would agree that Barry's decision was a shock, and a let down to his fans - althouth it made him the class act he is today!
quit "early" due to scandle?
quit "early" due to many years of successful TV?
quit "early" due to many years of success at a sport?
quit "early" due to being a political hack?
i don't understand your premis.
You have only to look at the history of the original twelve apostles of Jesus Christ to see the pattern. The leader of the group, Peter and his counselors of James and John did not abdicate their callings excepting through death. Power resided in the Quorum in the absence of a functioning Peter.
It is the same today. Functioning Apostles and counselors take over the day to day nuts and bolts of the Lord's church in the absence of the chief Apostle or president. Revelatory light still flows through the mortal "head" of the church to those ordained and set apart to receive and shoulder the responsibilities. Relieved of his calling, through death, paves the way for the ascension of the chief Apostle to the position of presidency and mouthpiece of God on Earth.
No wondering, no guessing, no politicing, no factioning! "My house is a house of order sayeth the Lord, and not of confusion."
