RE: Pope Francis is starting to scare the shit outta Girly
Relax Girly.

He's just another Pope being Pope.

New Pope, Good Interview, Old Story
Catholic World Report

Synopsis: No change in doctrine or practice, just tweaking the apologetic emphasis toward what he wants us to talk about.

In the Pope's own words:
Quote:We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods. This is not possible. I have not spoken much about these things, and I was reprimanded for that. But when we speak about these issues, we have to talk about them in a context. The teaching of the church, for that matter, is clear and I am a son of the church, but it is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time.

The dogmatic and moral teachings of the church are not all equivalent. The church’s pastoral ministry cannot be obsessed with the transmission of a disjointed multitude of doctrines to be imposed insistently. Proclamation in a missionary style focuses on the essentials, on the necessary things: this is also what fascinates and attracts more, what makes the heart burn, as it did for the disciples at Emmaus. We have to find a new balance; otherwise even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards, losing the freshness and fragrance of the Gospel. The proposal of the Gospel must be more simple, profound, radiant. It is from this proposition that the moral consequences then flow.

Nonsense is nonsense, but the history of nonsense is a very important science.

Makes it sound like a detergent.

Ok, folks.

Let's have some suggestions for what the collective or individual gospels smell like.

Patchouli and feet.

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.

Eusebius said there were four because there are four winds and four pillars upon which the Earth stands. Makes perfect sense Weeping

Quote:A Victorian Catholic priest who criticised the church's positions on gay marriage and women becoming priests has been defrocked and excommunicated.

Former Western Port parish priest Greg Reynolds has been notified by the Vatican that he's been removed from the priesthood and the church.

Mr Reynolds says he fell out of favour three years ago after voicing support for female priests.

He resigned from his parish in 2011 and started a Melbourne group called Inclusive Catholics, and has also spoken out in favour of gay marriage.

Yup all smoke and mirrors. Met the new boss same as the old boss.

Let's have some suggestions for what the collective or individual gospels smell like.

I think Genesis should be Mountain Mist or something similar - a fresh scent reminiscent of forested mountains and rain. Appropriate for the garden.

John should be Fresh Linen. Not sure why, it just seems right.

Deuteronomy should be Corpse Leather, because that matches its nature. I imagine it being written on pages of stretched and tanned human skin, flayed from the backs of sinners, and inked with blood and tears.

If something can be destroyed by the truth, it might be worth destroying.

Don't worry, it is just the ol' good pope, bad pope routine.
