Pope says we're OK
So many of you will be relieved to here, the Pope announced that atheists can be good people. No word if Catholics can be good people but, it seems plausible.

Does anyone really give a crap? Sadly, people follow what this fool says, so, I guess it is a good thing, though the irony is plenty.

RE: Pope says we're OK
its the swing of the pendulum. He's only saying it because the pope before him was against such a thought. It's his way of standing out. still a bunch of b.s.

Can or have to be? I quite enjoy being the evil, baby munching spawn of Satan that I am. This is way too much pressure.

Well, we used to be second-class believers? Huh lol

I see this as a good thing. There are a zillion catholics across the globe (how many are there?) and the more tolerance of different world views he shows, the better for humanity.

Every move away from condemning us heathens is a move away from restrictive religious culture.

I could care less why he said it.

Oh, I need some fuckwad who protects child molesters to tell me that I'm okay?. No, don't need someone to tell me I'm ok. I know I'm ok. On the other hand, I'm not sure if we could say that someone who harbors and protects child molesters is okay.

RE: Pope says we're OK
Let's face it, the Catholic church will continue to accept reality, one bite at a time until such time that it endorses atheism, homosexuality, polygamy, gambling, prostitution, drug use, etc....

Just as long as everyone will let the folks at the Vatican keep all their riches.

Truth is, they don't give a fuck about atheists. Or Catholics. They give a fuck about all the real estate and jewelry they own and the Pope gives a fuck about his Liberace dress.

So... don't be surprised when the Pope makes some announcement that god now accepts this group or that. Just keep an eye on your wallet and your young boys.

RE: Pope says we're OK
Excellent point Dom.

Another thing to realize is that a lot of Catholics know the rules and bend them anyway, they just aren't blatant about it around the other Catholics. When the Pope speaks a lot of people listen but when he speaks he is often stating a stand that was taken by his people long before.
