Do you send Christmas cards?

What is your favorite holiday movie?

Do you  have a favorite holiday cookie?

What's for dinner on Christmas?

Number five, Are you surprised by Time magazine's pick for person of the year?

she gets paid for coming up with endless dribble that can span the air time between the commercial breaks. There's really no comparison to this Pope who lives what he believes.

I agree.

I usually get my fill of raspberry jam in our trifle, but this year I am subbing Saskatoon berry jam in honor of our big trip of 2013.   I doubt anyone will notice.

That's why the Pope is liked so much, there's nothing to disagree with him about.  I just hope he's Pope long enough for me and my family to visit Vatican City...  ;-)

"That's why the Pope is liked so much, there's nothing to disagree with him about." -------- I agree with you on that, Jams, but clearly not everyone does. For example: http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2013/12/04/pope-francis-is-catholic-churchs-obama-god-help-us/

Which one?  I've heard good things about the one in my area.

Well worth the visit, imo.

"Huh? Of course the catholic church stays out of gay marriage." ----- No, you misunderstood me. My point is that instead of opposing gay marriage, the Church could simply stay neutral. It is not the Church's business to order secular society and the state (that is the "Give unto Caesar" principle), so the Church violates none of its principles by calmly and quietly letting the state legalize gay marriage.

Obviously, Jamblessed could not have been any clearer that the Catholic Church stays out of gay marriage.  You read her words, have no proof contradicting them yet still ignore them.  It's a shame amidst all of Greece's many, many economic problems, the leaders of Greece's church have been not only vulgar and noxious with their disdain for gay marriage in Greece; they've overreached their powers and threaten to excommunicate political leaders who vote on this and other gay issues.

As if it's not bad enough Greece is basically a Third World country now.

"For the church fathers, homosexuality is the most disgusting and unclean sin," he railed in a nine-page missive made public last week. "[Such relationships] are an insult against God and man … an unnatural aberration not even observed in animals..."

"....A leading Greek bishop has warned lawmakers that they risk incurring the wrath of God – and will be excommunicated – if they vote in favour of legalising same-sex partnerships."

Not worth the visit unless you're determined to "meet" this Pope.   It's much easier and better to get a coffee table book with great photos of the sistine chapel ceiling up close.  Smile
