    So tiresome to hear those with toy tin horns sound off their one off key solitary sour note over and over again. What the heck does this have to do with Obama? This is actually a very good editorial social commentary, but your comment PAJ/Ima is just plain stupid.

    As the Italian lady in St Peter’s Square is reputed to have yelled a the Pope many years ago during a birth-control controversy: “Hey! You no play’a da game, you you8 no make’a da rules!”

    Funny. But the pope doesn’t make the rules.

    I guess this toon is in reference for the pope not being “pro-choice”. The pro-choice argument is simple; life begins when the government says it does, and to the pope there is a higher power than government.

    Like the pope said, the back door is closed.

    No, it’s not about pro-choice. It’s that the pope said “gay men can be priests, who am I to judge?” with one hand but says “no women in the clergy, and I am the one to judge!” with the other. And PAJ — you’re an idiot. You’re doing no favors to the conservative cause by making conservatives look so stupid. Go away.

    Whoa! What a disinformational load of crapola!
    .
    The Pope said that the church has spoken on women being priests, “No.”

    BUT,,,

    there are other places in the church where women will take a more preeminent role.
    .
    And who do you people think you are? When was the last time YOU voted for a woman anything? Women are a far minority in US politics. We haven’t had a major party put a woman up for Prex (heart beat from the prex, and ironically she was a “Hail Mary”that we all “passed” on) SO where do you get off?
    .
    What? Tammy Fay Baker counts as a woman is a position of authority in your fundie ideology? How are women regarded in the “Promise Keepers?” How about amongst you Mormons?
    .
    Nuns in the Catholic church deserve a whole lot more respect and input into the church. My bet is that this Pope gives them a whole new channel for their good works. They will (God willing and the crick don’t rise)have more power and influence in this church by the end of Francis’s time than what a "priesthood would have given them.
    .
    Nuns will feel more appreciated by this Pope then at any time in their history.

    Reason nailed it.
    Don’t you people read or at least filter the news broadcasts. I was filtering the news last night when I heard that “women will still not be allowed to be priests”.

    Thanks for your long drawn out opinion on nothing Ima.

    This cartoon hits the nail on the head! (No pun intended, ladies). Why is the pope backing off from the gays, but still disenfranchising women as equals to serve in the church? As a Catholic, we revere Mary, Jesus’ mother. There are also writings of Mary Magdalen being loved by Jesus as an equal to his apostles, or maybe even highest among them because they become jealous when He tells Mary things He doesn’t share with the guys. So, why not give them full equality and allow them to become priests and deacons?
