“small minded rules”
I have never thought of sin as “small mind rules”.
I’m a “recovering Methodist”, but is the Pope really considered God’s spokesman on earth?
Beware of Jesuits...the liberal branch of the Catholic Church.
This Papacy is going to be a disaster.
The 50% that voted for the most radical abortion supporter in US Presidential history....those Catholics are emboldened all over the web today, including on Raymond Arroyo’s FB page.
Prepare for more ambiguity, confusion, relativism and scandal.
I'm going to say that this new pope just gives me the willies. His cuteness, for instance, always too cute by half. Wants to play the eccentric, when people find comfort in maintaining little traditions like red shoes...and that was just the beginning. He keeps wanting to pretend that he's a man of the masses, worries security, is unconventional for the sake of it. Then there's the Jesuit "liberation theology" undercurrent.
Why this guy? Was Benedict forced out? I think we are in a world of hurt. When Jon Stewart approves, w are in trouble.
I am not Catholic but I’ve had good words to say about Francis before. I hope I don’t have to take those back.
Jesuits are Catholic? That’s funny. At my Jesuit school they made it very clear they were not a Catholic school, they were Jesuit.

In a broad-ranging interview, Pope Francis has underlined the need for the Church to heal wounds and to warm the hearts of the faithful. “Ministers of the church must be ministers of mercy above all, the Pope insists in the course of a 12,000-word interview. Conducted by Father Antonio Spadaro, the editor of the Italian Jesuit journal La Civilta Cattolica, the interview was translated and published simultaneously by other Jesuit publications, including the American magazine America.
Oh, yea......all paths lead to God or whatever.
See my post # 9. Remember: Do not trust CBS/NBC/ABC/CNN to give an honest report on anything Christian and especially any interview with Pope Francis.
From THE mind? From the greatest mind that has ever or will ever exist?
This seems so at odds with the Pope’s statements before he became the Pope, I think we can only conclude that the Vatican is ensnared by a homosexual lobby, and this Pope has caved to them.
Is Catholicism following in the footsteps of Methodism?
The world would be a better place if people stuck to worshiping God and Jesus, and not Popes.
I don’t need a mere human to redefine the word of God for me.
Really? Jesuit’s are an order of Catholic Priests who usually teach in schools and colleges...and are liberal.
There are some really good Jesuits. But a lot of them don’t or barely consider themselves Catholic.
If you belonged to the world, the world would love its own; but because you do not belong to the world, and I have chosen you out of the world, the world hates you.
