    Dude named Simon. Nickname was "Rocky" or something like that.

    Probably several more too but I'm not really up on 1st century popes.

      ... Catholics, but just misled followers of a squirrelly fringe  rabbi who ticked the Romans off by withering perfectly good fruit trees and talking insurrection.  And talking it in red ink, too, which was a very serious offense in those days because red words were reserved for emperors and priestesses/temple hookers of Dionysus.  If anyone qualifies as the first Pope, it was Paul/Saul, and he wasn't Jewish because he openly apostatized when he started the new cult following his episode of heatstroke hallucination on the road to Damascus.  Thanks for the chuckle, though -- my morning was off to a rocky start until I read your post.  Don't let your sense of humor peter out.  Upon this crock I won't be besmirched, and the goys of PTL shall not presell me condo memberships.

      You know, with enough pun-ishness and outright mockery, first century CE Jews might have been able to laugh the upstart cult out of existence before Paul penned his first apostle epistle.  What a different (and presumably better) world we would have today.

      The wisdom of my forebears ... Two wise people will never agree. Man begins in dust and ends in dust — meanwhile it's good to drink some vodka. A man studies until he's seventy and dies a fool.
