    Yeah, I’ll believe it when it happens. Meanwhile, he’s against gay marriage and gay adoption and he kept silent throughout Argentina’s dictatorship.

    Sounds like same old same old to me.

    Argentina’s Peronist dictatorship is ongoing.

    We’ll see. I like the fact that he is a Jesuit, at least, and giving St. Francis a shout-out says a lot. Even as a Cardinal in Buenos Aires, he lived in an apartment, not the usual palace, took public transit, cooked his own meals, and took regular visits to the slums.
    Today he apparently went to his hotel — to pick up his bags. Himself.
    I disagree with his views on a number of things, but his commitment to walking the walk on poverty and fighting it. One quote I like: In 2009, he criticized his government’s “immoral, illegitimate and unjust” economic system, saying, “Rather than preventing that, it seems they have opted for making inequalities even greater. Human rights are not only violated by terrorism, repression or assassination, but also by unfair economic structures that creates huge inequalities.”

    Just another Imperial Pretender mocking the throne of the people and the government that this organization both overthrew and outgrew in the 5th Century so it could run its own empire beyond the borders of the old Roman state, with people it thought it could control, both Roman and Barbarian alike, until they lost control of most of them in 16th Century with the Reformation, and lost all secular control by the 19th Century, only to be the symbolic facade that they are today.

    The law of supply and demand: Tolerance: there’s a demand but darn little supply. At least here, today. :-(

    One can believe “just about every piece of B.S. any conservative ever spits out” without being a member of any church or follower of any religion. Believing BS is non-denominational, and seems more and more universal all the time. I don’t believe this is enough to punch your ticket to hell, but I don’t see where someone being a conservative is proof they are Catholic. Let’s be honest: most Catholics are not willing to trust birth control to Vatican Roulette, yet they are still Catholics.

    Diddn’t that dictatorship end in the 80s? Was he a Cardinal then? I may be wrong but seems like the news was fishing to me.

    Hey I agree with coraryan, also I believe in Jesus.
    Remember your idea of God ask to kill for him, mine died for me.

    Jack: say “Sheik Yerbooti” aloud.
    Maybe twice.
    Then try not to laugh.

    Whatever one feels about the Roman Catholic Church, the immediate future certainly looks like it will be entertaining.
    Boy, I wish I was a whole bunch of flies on a lot of walls inside there at the moment.
    And some people are surely squirming. The comfortable ride is going to get rather bumpy.
