Pope calls for compassionate Church open to "imperfect" Catholics
At first glance I simply thought he was asking the “perfect” Catholics to forgive the pedophile priests. Now I see he is asking the “perfect” Catholics to be more accepting of the adulterous and gay in the congregation.

I’m always amazed at how important it is to religions to have a say on what happens in the bedroom between consenting adults. The pope needs to be more concerned on what happens with his priests and the children they prey on.

Anyway, thanks...but no thanks. I don’t need your forgiveness nor want your acceptance.

Wait, that presupposes gays can marry in the Catholic Church Huh

Anyway I think you have to commit gay adultery with a 12 year old.

I thought everyone was equally imperfect, according to Catholic mythology. Drinking Beverage

All catholics are imperfect but some are less imperfect.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

The media spin around this pope irritates the shit out of me.

He makes these bullshit PR statements that sound nice, but the actual rules never change. It's all public relations nonsense.

So the mafia and the catholic church are Italian organized crime syndicates and the mafia guys have nicknames like "The Teflon Don" and "Scarface".

Pope Francis's mafia name should be Frankie the Weasel.

Fuck him.

It's not anywhere near what people here would want, but the document is amazing, in the change it represents.
http://www.mprnews.org/story/2016/04/08/...traception
I'm sure Suscipe Dummyknee is having a stroke over this.
It also is odd in what it *doesn't* say. It doesn't actually condemn SS marriage. It says it's not of the same value as straight marriage, but the fact that it doesn't say anything about "sin" or "disordered" is rather remarkable.
The sentence on contraception is pretty funny ... as a poke to the conservatives ("more grace, less dogma"). Heh heh.
But I haven't read the thing, and probably won't.
So ... meh.

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