Problem is, the world is only looking for the helping hand.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

PRECISELY! They strike when they are least expected, because no one expects...

Don't fall for that cunning asshole, he has good PR advisers, but his ideas are just as bad as the previous guy.

I was surprised to find how many people bought into his "humility". And I'm not talking only about religious Catholics (they'd cheer at anything a pope says, no matter what it is), I'm saying that even some nonreligious people I know have fallen for it. As someone has said, at the RCC they know very well that many people criticise them for their wealth, so this was an unsurprising move to keep the flock amazed with how the pope is a man of the people, while in reality nothing will change. It's just a PR show.

So far the only thing this Pope has actually done is make it illegal to report crimes by priests against children. Obvious evil is easier to deal with but this guy.... I'm with Girly this dude scares the fuck outta me.

So I come to the three questions you put to me in the article of August 7. It seems to me that, in the first two, what is in your heart is to understand the attitude of the Church to those who don’t share faith in Jesus. First of all, you ask me if the God of Christians forgives one who doesn’t believe and doesn’t seek the faith. Premise that – and it’s the fundamental thing – the mercy of God has no limits if one turns to him with a sincere and contrite heart; the question for one who doesn’t believe in God lies in obeying one’s conscience. Sin, also for those who don’t have faith, exists when one goes against one’s conscience. To listen to and to obey it means, in fact, to decide in face of what is perceived as good or evil. And on this decision pivots the goodness or malice of our action.

I've been tryin to tell you peeps that there is a tradition of liberal European Christianity, (which has always been there), that if one follows one's conscience, then "I'm ok, yer ok". Just cuz US Fundies are so frikin' ignorant, doesn't mean they all are. Do you listen to the Fullerene ? No. Maybe now ya will. Tongue

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

All I know is from his PR...and I gotta say, based on that, he is doing well. Maybe his intention is just to keep Catholicism attractive enough to remain relevant. Maybe he a actually believes the shit he says. Either way, it is a step in the right direction. Next thing you know queers can be moral! (Note, I said can muffs). If being irreligious becomes acceptable, I dunno what I'd do with myself. Probably eat a baby while I have gay sex and getting the mark of the beast tattooed on my forehead on a streaming video just to put things back to normal again Tongue

It's called evolution. Small changes (there aren't any big ones I see atm) to help an organism survive. The Vatican has to do this in order for it to survive. Under a microscope and heavy scrutiny as well as full access to their records, they'd crumble. They're learning the trait of camouflage. I'm not surprised at all. I call these colors "A dash of pseudo-rationale" as it's still the same shit they're peddling.

Actions speak louder than words. He can fluff all he wants but if he doesn't make any changes within the church or church doctrine then it is just that, words.
