A Christmas Story

Not at all. Francis is a breath of fresh air after that Nazi stiff Benedict.

Yes, heaven forbid he upset two thousand years of misogyny. I mean, that would be absolutely tragic for Catholic women. Undecided

The Church in my diocese did not stay out of the gay marriage debate. Bishop Tobin's pastoral letter:

First, like many others, I am profoundly disappointed that Rhode Island has approved legislation that seeks to legitimize “same-sex marriage.” The Catholic Church has fought very hard to oppose this immoral and unnecessary proposition, and we are most grateful to all those who have courageously joined us in this effort. When all is said and done, however, we know that God will be the final judge of our actions.

This the same Bishop that has publicly disagreed with Pope Francis on Mandela and the "obsession" on social issues.

This is the same Bishop who is a hypocrite. Yes, Jams, I can even give you an example of why he is a hypocrite. His commitment to protecting the life of unborn, pales in comparison to his willingness to deny and hide preists who committed heinous crimes against children.

Hmm, I'm Catholic and I've got no complaints.   A voter, landowner, driver's license, bank account, credit card in my name, played tennis everyday this week in a short skirt.  Surprised   I'm good.  You're not a Catholic so I have to ask, Why are you wasting an iota of your life blaming a Pope(s) who has never and will never affect your life?  What part of the Constitution gives the Pope plenary political power? 

You're mistaking a very misogynistic society/world for the past 2,000 years with a religion that you never wanted to join in the first instance.  Why?

Oh yes, there is kind of an apposite and parallel definition of repeating oneself over and over hoping for a different outcome.  I posted, then in response to PKA's off-the-mark questions, I repeated what I said.  Then more silly questions, then more of my same explanations using ever simpler diction.  Alas, I am an eternal optimist.  Smile

Yes.  I did.

Yes, yes, I did.

That's nice you've changed your tune garnetboy/wannabe b/c at one time your disapproval of gay marriage was b/c you feared it would lead to humans being allowed to marry dogs or goats or something sick like that.  You're a member of the UCC, they've always believed in marriage equality, No?

Maybe standards are different across the country?

Of course.

Well, my mom wasn't in the best of health when she went there.  They saw it all and I am impressed and moved by pictures to this day.

I agree thardy, there will be married priests before women priests. That obviously doesn't sit well with her, Poor thing.

Really? You think that's a good thing? Women as second class citizens in the Church is good? Oh my., I hope Pope Francis appoints a woman as Cardinal. He may do it to watch all your heads explode.
