i was just taking a poll,no-one is happy with him.Who is tired of explaining a Pope.Who will be at the Red Mass in Washington to see who receive's Communion.Besides the usual suspect's who else do you think.
I reject the contention that “conservatives” must all think the same thing about everyone. That’s fascist.
Beep,not in the poll.
He has his way of looking at the world, and that's nice. And if the nonbelievers, and those of other faiths, like it, fine. Great.
But he's where he needs to be on doctrine. Everything else is organization and window dressing.
When saying not to obsess about 3 or 4 topics, I responded, "Yeah, he's concerned with A LOT MORE than JUST those. Not that he's NOT concerned with those, or that's he's relaxing anything."
People will take anything they like out of context and say that their definition of the man defines the man. No, Francis will define himself, and he'll do that more and more every day.
Funny, not too many people seem to be in my face about his abortion speech a day after saying we should obsess over it. Go figure.
Oh, well. I reject polls, too.
Thank you (((Hugs)))
Conservative or not.
I was conservative in the 70’s and 80’s. These days I run more towards the “reactionary” end of the spectrum, i.e. “Rush Limbaugh is a squishy moderate.”
I’m kinda tired of some of the stuff I see flying around between different groups of Christians. Kinda silly given the fact that Christianity is under the gun around the world, including here at home in the US.
Eventually, and I think very soon, Francis will clarify his statements and they will prove completely consistent with Catholic teaching and not a "wonderful, hopeful change."
For the first time in their unthinking lives these same people, who could barely contain their enthusiasm only yesterday, are going to have to use reason to defend their positions, positions they "felt" their way to rather than having arrived at them by reason.
I suspect almost all will go away sad like the wealthy young man who wouldn't sell all his possessions to follow Christ.
*Okay, that's probably not the right term but I can't think of a feint that suckers the opponent into thinking he's got he's got his opposition on the ropes only to have the tables turned on him.
why would it amaze you?? communists, socialists, nazi’s, liberals, progressives- they all have a masters degree in lying...its a requirement since they have no results to fall back on....
Conservative or not?
but I must tell you that it's years since I could use the terms conservative/liberal, or Right/Left, without a conscious sense of irony.
I always list my political principles as "Catholic." If the Pope votes "Catholic" too, that's all I ask.
This is a poll stick with the question.
