    One of the best Oliphants of the year, and thus one of the best editorial cartoons of the year! A truly inspired idea, beautifully executed. It ought to be hung up on the walls of every televangelist’s mansion!

    What?! I may not be a Christian but I know that Jesus never wanted to be a Pharasee or seen as some other sort of deified entity who was head or part of an organize church like the Catholic one.

    Great just great!
    Even the trolls, and computer program posts can’t knock it.

    Isn’t it sad that the extremists are all in a panic because the Pope is telling us to live like Christ? They are calling him a ‘Marxist’ instead of a Christian. And that is all you need to know about them.

    Sorry, you were too late. A troll came knocking just ahead of you.

    There is a ‘good’ pope today?
    Is that a “good” fruit on that old tree?

    “Jesus never wanted to be…part of an organized church like the Catholic one…” (Or the Hebrew one full of Pharasees). And, HE said: “Call no man Father, except your Father in Heaven”.

    The family did go to Egypt while Herod was mass murdering 2 year olds and babies.

    He made peter head of the church. This I what evolved. Warts and all. If all you see are warts you’ll never hear the message. And everyone left behind had warts.

    Yeah, that Francis dude is great, and this is a staunch atheist writing who lost “his” pope prematurely due to old age…

    -

    (On election of Benedict there was a huge headline in our leading tabloid, “Bild”, reading “WIR SIND PAPST!” (we are pope), never read anything more stupid in my whole life!)

    … Jesus is the Messiah… the Pope is a follower of the Messiah… A nice compliment to Pope Francis, but just a theological oxymoron…

    I find it odd that Joseph, if that’s him, had a halo over his head when he and Mary frist arrived. Now Joseph has no halo but Mary still has her’s. I wonder why?

    Oliphant has found some one new to idolize. For now. Liberals love the Church’s economics because it has a distributive philosophy—give to the poor while keeping a nice bit for yourself. But the Church also believes that we have souls, leading to certain inevitable positions upon things like abortion and euthanasia. And to liberals, being pro-life is akin to being pro-slavery. This doesn’t seem to bother American Catholics however since all the prominent ones not actually in the priesthood seem to be fervent advocates of abortion. (Just to be sure I make everyone mad, I support abortion myself, but I’m not a Catholic.)

    Of course we do. He said he came to save the world.

    “…peter head of the church…”
    300 years after all the Apostles were dead, there was no ‘head of the church’. The Roman Emperor met with 15% of the Bishops in the empire. There was a vote. The losers were Excommunicated, Exiled from the empire, and anyone that possessed their writings were Executed. The Priesthood ceased to act in the name of Christ.
