  •  Funny how the Pope MUST be obeyed (0+ / 0-)

    when he's bashing Harry Potter, telling women to have as many babies as YHWH ordains, and informing gays they're going to hell for having sex and NOm, they can't marry.....but when this Pope changes the emphasis (not the actual doctrine--he still says abortion is a sin and gay marriages will not be performed by priests) from berating people for using birth control and loving a member of their own sex to things like poverty and a living wage and healthcare for all---they plaster their hands to their ears and sing "LALALALALALA!" at the top of their lungs.

    While I prefer Francis's tone, I won't be going back untilt hey cange their mind about the role of women, sexuality and contraception and abortion--I can't belong to a church that wants me barefoot and pregnant.

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
