I think I’m enjoying voting in this French poll a little too much.
I am getting the message that the vote is closed.
yes its closed
Le vote est clos.
I voted on this poll earlier today before it closed. I was surprised by how many no votes there were.
One wonders if Fr. Z should start linking people indirectly to polls instead of the normal method.
Oh well…. better late than never. Maybe we helped with a small bump at the end.
Why would a majority of the French readers of Le Figaro vote “oui”? The vast majority of France is pagan, non-Catholic or apostate. Hiding the symptom will not effect the cure.
I don’t like the tone of the question itself. “Do you approve of THE WISH/DESIRE of Benedict XVI to beatify Pius XII?”
It A) Shows a profound misunderstanding regarding the nature of beatification/canonization and B) Disparages the actions of the Holy Father in democratic terms. This is like a poll on whether the Pope should recognize officially the sky as blue, and his ‘desire’ to do so. It’s semantic and silly, and shows that whoever came up with it fundamentally misunderstands the nature of these pontifical pronouncements.
Looks like it was only open long enough for them to get the results they wanted.
I’m French! Why do think I have this outrageous accent, you silly Catholic!
What are you doing conducting a poll about religious matters?
Mind your own business!
If you insist on conducting a ludicrous poll, we shall take it by force!
You don’t frighten us, papist pig-dogs! Go and boil your bottoms, sons of a silly person. I blow my nose at you, so-called Z-father, you and all your silly loyal Catholics. Thppppt!
Worm- I LOL’ed. Classic stuff. Just classic.
“They said they already got one!”
As was said so succinctly in the comments there, “L’Eglise ne fonctionne pas comme le TOP 50“, Panoramix19.
Has anyone seen Asterix or Obelix about?
The site says the poll is closed for me too.
“Ante-penultimate”?! This deserves an interabang. How could you possibly expect us stoopid lay people to know a big word like that? (hahaha) Why not just use (waste words) “There were only two more votes after mine” rather than “I was the ante-penultimate vote”? Same number of syllables though…
Thank you for using the word ante-peultimate.
