Well, for what this is worth, congratulations, Your Holiness.

But was the necklace man from south Africa too soon to make the cover? And what happened to tray-boy-eeee? I know he died the previous year but the trial was this year and the “lack” of just-us for the innocent choir boy should have at least had him in the running.

(Under my plan(scheme), the price of EVERYTHING will necessarily skyrocket! Period.)
And so Francis signals great change while giving the same answers to the uncomfortable questions. On the question of female priests: We need to work harder to develop a profound theology of the woman. Which means: no. No to abortion, because an individual life begins at conception. No to gay marriage, because the male-female bond is established by God. The teaching of the church
is clear, he has said, and I am a son of the church, butand here he adds his prayer for himselfit is not necessary to talk about those issues all the time.
If that prayer should be answered, if somehow by his own vivid example Francis could bring the church into a new relationship with its critics and dissidentsagreeing to disagree about issues that divide them while cooperating in the urgent mission of spreading mercyhe might unleash untold good. Argue less, accomplish more could be a healing motto for our times. We have a glut of problems to tackle. Francis says by example, Stop bickering and roll up your sleeves. Dont let the perfect be the enemy of the goodan important thing for the world to hear, especially from a man who holds an office deemed infallible.
He's being praised because the folks at Time believe he's diluting fundamental moral principles.
I can't wait for Ann Barnhardt’s response about this.
No disrespect meant to his Holiness, but when I read who the other finalists were, I’m reminded of the Rodney Dangerfield line that “he didn’t want to belong to ANY club that would let him join..”

In post 50 on the “Do Catholics pray to statues?,” I posted this:
“The religion forum of FR pushes a Marxist, Liberation Theology, socialist, Jesuit Pope, his Marxism totally in opposition to the political conservatism of FR”
The RF is in overdrive now, Time magazine coming out the next day with their Marxist man of the year, no telling how many FR Marxist threads pushing this Pope we are going to have to endure now.
FR is supposed to be a conservative site? Go figure.
