Sometimes "the Lord seemed to sleep," says the Pope.

Bidding an emotional farewell to a huge crowd gathered in The Vatican's St. Peter's Square, Pope Benedict XVI indirectly acknowledged Wednesday that his nearly 8 years as head of the Roman Catholic Church have not always been easy.

Sometimes "the Lord seemed to sleep," the pope said during the last general audience before his resignation takes effect Thursday. Benedict, whose years as pope have included further revelations about sexual abuse scandals involving priests and have been marred by questions about his management skills, said that while "the Lord has given us many days of sunshine and gentle breeze, days in which the catch has been abundant; [then] there have been times when the seas were rough and the wind against us."

My old friend George Gurdjieff used to say "if you want to loose your faith make friends with a priest".

And if you're a little boy, you may lose something else.

So does that translate to "nobody is more sure of what constitutes pure bullshit as the guy saying it"?

I don't think it's referencing an intention to deceive. It's saying that it's near impossible to be the embodiment of a book-based religion.
