Rapper Common

Bring On a Black Pope!

Rapper Common isn't too beat up about the Pope calling it quits today -- because it means the next leader of the Catholic Church ... COULD BE BLACK!!!

Common was coming back from a workout session in L.A. ... when our photog asked about the strong possibility Pope Benedict XVI's replacement could be a black cardinal from Ghana named Peter Turkson.

In the age of a black President, Common tells us, electing a black Pope would be "a beautiful thing.

FYI -- Pope Benedict XVI is the first Pope in nearly 600 years to call it quits ... saying he's too old at the age of 85 to continue doing the job.

Destroy the catholic church and all churches while at it..religion is mind control and used to breed subserviant, docile creatures that will in no way challenge, question or threaten the ruling power..religion is outdated and serves no purpose in todays society..black or white, yellow or brown it doesnt matter when you're taught at birth to bow down to an unseen "higher power"

THERE IS AN "INVISIBLE" HIGHER POWER THAN ONESELF............


MAN CERTAINLY DID NOT CREATE "PLANET EARTH"!!!!!!

Planet Earth by Michael Jackson


Planet Earth, my home, my place
A capricious anomaly in the sea of space
Planet Earth are you just
Floating by, a cloud of dust
A minor globe, about to bust
A piece of metal bound to rust
A speck of matter in a mindless void
A lonely spacship, a large asteroid
Cold as a rock without a hue
Held together with a bit of glue
Something tells me this isn't true
You are my swweetheart soft and blue
Do you care, have you a part
In the deepest emotions of my own heart
Tender with breezes caressing and whole
Alive with music, haunting my soul.
In my veins I've felt the mystery
Of corridors of time, books of hisotry
Life songs of ages throbbing in my blood
Have danced the rhythm of the tide and flood
Your misty clouds, your electric storm
Were turbulent tempests in my own form
I've licked the salt, the bitter, the sweet
(From: http://www.elyrics.net)
Of every encounter, of passion, of heat
Your riotous color, your fragrance, your taste
Have thrilled my senses beyond all haste
In your beuaty, I've known the how
Of timeless bliss, this moment of now
Planet Earth are you just
Floating by, a cloud of dust
A minor globe, about to bust
A piece of metal bound to rust
A speck of matter in a mindless void
A lonely spacship, a large asteroid
Cold as a rock without a hue
Held together with a bit of glue
Something tells me this isn't true
You are my swweetheart gentle and blue
Do you care, have you a part
In the deepest emotions of my own heart
Tender with breezes caressing and whole
Alive with music, haunting my soul.
Planet Earth, gentle and blue
With all my heart, I love you.


WE ALL BELONG TO THE "HUMAN RACE"!!!!!!

Who cares if he's qualified just as long as he's black. Martin Luther king said "don't judge a man by the color of his skin but by the content of his character".

What a perfect example of what is happening to our world and the lack of faith...notice all of you who are saying things against whites, blacks, people who believe in God, notice how you all sound so mean, violent and racist like your parents didn't raise you at all..that is because they have removed God from our lives, our schools, you all have dark empty souls and it shows with your blatant disrespect... even for yourselves. I will pray for your mercy and forgiveness

I'm sure a pope of any race or color could promote misogyny and protect pedophiles just as well.

“As you grow older, you'll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don't you forget it - whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, he is trash.”
