Excellent article. I'm surprised it hasn't received more comments; but then again, it's brutally honest and points out the elephant (pink at that) in the Vatican.

How's this for a humanist:

"Our objective is not proselytism, but listening to the needs, the desires, the disappointments, the desperation, the hope. We must bring hope back to the young, help the old, open to the future, spread love. Poor among the poor. We must include the excluded and preach peace.

Francis, Bishop of Rome

The pope can give the thumbs up all day long, but he refuses to bless public audiences with the Sign of the Cross for fear of offending non-believers.
