On the Late Pope

Assorted retorts from yahoo boards and elsewhere: On the Late Pope · Correspondence of Hans Georg Lundahl: An exchange with Lauren Bass, on Pope Michael

I shared this for the sermon on my main blog. Here is for the debate with someone:

I always felt sorry for poor David. He wasn't evil, just mentally ill.

Hans-Georg Lundahl
Where do you get that from?

Paula A Johnson
@Hans-Georg Lundahl The poorly educated, unordained fool had himself elected Pope Michael I by 6 lay crazies in Kansas, his delusional old parents included.

Hans-Georg Lundahl
@Paula A Johnson You are poorly educated if you think a man has to be ordained before being elected Pope.

Bishops in the first millennium, including in Rome, were elected by acclamation, mainly by laymen.

And apart from your disliking the position, how do you argue mental illness? So far you have just used that terminology to express your dislike of the position.
