That rascal Pope Francis just keeps telling the truth and it's really shaking the world up.


Pope Francis faulted the Republicans for focusing too much on gays and abortion, saying the Republican Party has become "obsessed" with those issues to the detriment of its larger mission to be "home for all," according to an extensive new interview published Thursday.

WOOPS. I misread that, my bad. The correct quote was:

"Pope Francis faulted the Roman Catholic church for focusing too much on gays and abortion, saying the church has become "obsessed" with those issues to the detriment of its larger mission to be "home for all," according to an extensive new interview published Thursday." (HuffPost)

This man is amazing. He is just telling the flat out truth. This is stunning behavior following the reigns' of JPII and Benedict. And keep in mind, after all the propaganda by the conservative American bishops, didn't Obama get a majority of the Catholic vote in the last election?


Hopefully this will put an end to the vagina politics in the church and in our Republican party.

Holy Mother of God, what is going on here? Where is my bottle of Irish? <Gulp>

Well it is true that Paul VI was within a hair's breadth of removing the ban on contraception from Humanae Vitae, and rumors were they he regretted that he ever signed it with the prohibition intact. So really, all the Pope is doing here is beginning a dialogue on the festering issues that stem from that illbegotten encyclical, Humanae Vitae.

As far as the Elephants in the USA: if they think they are going to win in the future by sticking an ultrasound probe up a woman's holy part to see what is squirming around in there, then they are just as delusional on that issue as they are on many other issues. Just out of their cotton pickin' minds. We all know that.

Once the ban on contraception goes, then humans are (officially) permitted to do what they do most of the time anyway, which is to have sex for pleasure's sake...and if that is so...well it opens up dialogue on other issues as well.

OMG, the natural law people in the Church are going to have a field day with the Pope's remarks.

"Look, the man's part is made to fit into the lady's part, and that's natural and you get a baby. If it's natural, then that's the way God meant it."

(All the sudden God supports the natural.)

Yes, but if you say that, then you must admit that a teen young fellers hand and the length of his arm is made to reach his penis and go to yanking on it like crazy. Same thing thing with a young lady, but she makes different movements with her hand(s). I won't say what happens next, except it's a great sin.

Now isn't that natural? I mean the parts fit perfect, don't they? You can make up anything you want to with the natural rights and the "God made it to fit" type arguments. It just depends on one's imagination as to how far you can take it and how ridculous you can get, and most philosophers have always considered it weak theology and weak philosophy.

My hat is off to the Pope.

I just had four conservative Catholic friends call me in a furor to let me know about this article. They had the nerve to be mad at me for something the Pope said. I'm the token liberal Catholic in the group. One of my conservative friends took his rifle out and shot every crow off his power lines that had been bothering him with their squawking all morning long. I reminded him that this added to the overall violence in the world this day. He said nothing.

Anyway, they all say they are converting to the St. Pius X Society and will attend only the Tridentine Latin Mass from now on. There's a little Church down the highway from here that keeps the Latin ways, but they are not possessed by St. Pius X.

I'll probably attend a few of the Latin Masses with them because I think they're pretty but I don't understand what their saying or whether they could be trying to pull the wool over my eyes.

The Pope is moving the Church forward by fits and bounds.
