Pope Resigns

Being that I was raised Catholic, I found the Pope's resignation very intriguing. Although I don't follow any religion per say, and instead, choose to identify myself as purely spiritual, I must say, this man always gave me the creeps. There was just something about him that just wasn't inviting at all. With sexual scandals coming every which way from within the Catholic church, I wonder, what REALLY motivated him to make the decision to resign. Sure, there were a lot of issues he had to confront ranging from gay marriage to abortion rights, but he knew what he was signing up to do. As custom, I always tend to want to know what it is that was NOT publicly announced via media. Let's hope the next pope gives good direction and unifies instead of divide within a religion that tends to be more hypocritical than transparent.
