    Give him a little time.
    It’s not like Saint Ronnie tore down the Berlin wall his first week in office.

    to paraphrase –
    “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of Bors”
    There is a reason the founders wanted a barrier between gov’t and religion, but at the same time wanted citizens to be able to practice their religion as they wished.
    At least Pope Francis seems to practice the philosophy of “hate the sin, love the sinner.” Which is better than some who compare gays to terrorists and women’s reproductive rights as a capital crime. He is a religious leader with his beliefs and opinions. Would Mr. Bors prefer a Borgia?
    Change is incremental, but human attitude is too often excremental.
    Compassion, respect, and understanding is very important to a civilized society. Whether in tolerating a religious view, or tolerating a behavior against which your religion stands, we must recognize the rights of the individual if the rights of majority is to also be recognized. As long as gov’t is based on what is tangible, practicing a belief in the intangible is no threat, and offers many socially positive practices.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    If you have to call an abortion a woman’s reproductive right, you haven’t really made a point yet. Keep chipping away at that stone. Never mind the flakes. Eventually, you will have a point sufficiently divisive to be used for cleaning pelts, shaping wood or attaching to a stick for use in hunting or defense, until they outlaw it.

    Thanks, I stated to just list the numbers that applied but it got to long. Seems like this guy is the real deal. That should have any politician worry. It is his job to help with the worship of God. Not as Barbra Walters said " we thought obama was the messiah.

    As an ‘Agnostic’, I too don’t follow their beliefs/teachings. But I won’t try to ‘bend’ those believes to fit MY VIEW. I CHOOSE not to be a church member, I expect my choice to be respected, as much as I believe they think those positions are ‘timeless’ , and not subject to current OPINION !

    @BrassOrchid BrassOrchid, I pray pro life, I vote pro choice. However, this isn’t just about abortion unless you believe that the use of birth control pills, IUDs, and other such forms to prevent an unwanted pregnancy count as abortion. From religions that forbid the use of birth control, to religions that ban the use of medical procedures to save the life of a woman who is miscarrying, to businesses who don’t wish to pay for insurance that provides for such services, women are under attack for the simple crime of being able to get pregnant.

    I assure you that if men, like seahorses, found themselves the recipient of the female egg and forced to give birth to the resulting youngling, there would be much more sympathy to what women go through.
    Sadly, we not only fail to protect women sufficiently from predators and deviant relatives,our pharmaceutical companies are making a fortune from the sale of products that increase male libido whether the male is married or not.
    Perhaps you don’t see my point, but those who wish to make it impossible for women themselves to decide when to have children and how many children to have, are also behaving pointlessly. Freedom from the responsibility to care for the helpless is being sought by those who are against food programs and housing subsidies. Why shouldn’t women be free from the responsibility of having children for whom they cannot care.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    You realize 100 years behind the times is pretty good for the Church, right? There are still a lot of Church officials inveighing against “modernism,” by which they mean anything from the Age of Enlightenment on…
    If Francis gets back Vatican II (which was inappropriate eviscerated by JPII), I, for one, will salute him.

    Respectful Troll : Change may be incremental, but it is too slow. We seem to be restricted to one Christian Pope per century: Leo XIII in the 19th, John XXIII in the 20th, and Francis in the 21st.

    Oh, well I guess I missed the memo that defines the use of condoms or the pill as homicide. I did hear that many people consider it a bit of a risky life choice to deliberately displace a fertilized ovum after the fact of conception by causing the uterus to slough it off, but that is another matter than birth control. Asserting that the Faithful equate all forms of abstinence from procreation as a mortal sin is a bit of a stretch, but if that is your Faith, then feel free to practice it.

    Young people are always behind the times. They are unwilling to join the adults in the unchecked slide toward death until they absolutely must, and usually not until they have no choice but to be dragged, kicking and screaming, from their comfortable lives. Just having outgrown the ideas of youth doesn’t mean one has become a wiser or a better person, or society. Usually not, really, if history is any indication. But that’s just factual observation and not modern thinking based on deep thought.
