    Aren't they? Are you basing that only on what you've read on Foxnews about him being very conservative socially? No doubt there will always be some on the extreme left who can't get past the social conservatism of the Catholic Church...but I think in general..you'll find that most democrats will support this Pope and respect him. He has an excellent track record in fighting poverty...something that the democratic platform holds near and dear.

    Besides..in 2009 he came out clearly in condemnation of economic structures that lead to income inequality and his views on the role of economic structures are almost socialist in nature. He's been quoted as saying "the unjust distribution of goods persists, creating a situation of social sin that cries out to Heaven and limits the possibility of a fuller life for so many of our brothers" ( The Vatican Blog )

    So..my guess is that even as they gnash their teeth over the conservative views of the Catholic Church..those on the left will see this election as something very positive indeed.

    and sir it's overt just what you are.

    The difference is that I don't have the NEED to publically call you out every time.

    An athiest judging Christians by his rejection of Gods laws..? One who rejects Gods laws over to perverted mans laws. Ironic at the bery least.

    Want to talk about the Pope or his challenges?

     



    I am not an atheist.  Just because I don't accept the mythological nonsense that you accept as "law" does not mean that I reject the concept of God.  That is difficult for your limited rational capability to comprehend, but it is still the truth.  And God is still no bigot.  So you are in trouble...

     

     



     So for a higher power that you do NOT believe in you can still say.. "God is still no bigot."

     

    It's apparent to one of us that there is nothing to have a dialogue about. You reject the mythical nonsense yet can judge others and their faith?

     

    Care to share your feeling about the challenges in declining morality through the world that faces this new Pope? How would you go about it?

     




    One doesn't need to believe in the concept of God to glean from the Bible that God is neither a racist nor a bigot.

    Yes..an intellectual person can analyze the mythical nature of the stories passed down over milleniums..can understand that they are metaphor and story telling designed to strengthen belief..and still be able to judge the nature of another's involvement in religious values.

    For example...I don't believe you are a religious person with true religious beliefs. Whether or not you intend them to be..your comments are often construed as ..at worst..racist and bigotted..at best rooted in some kind of profound ignorance. I particularly find the way you throw around the word Messiah in such a derogatory manner very off-putting. I don't know a single person of faith who would engage in this type of behavior.

    I told you that I do believe in a higher power.  And yet you lie and say just the reverse.  You have no concept of what "morality" is.  Your version lacks rationality and compassion both.  It is wrong.

    "Another Old White Man Elected Pope"

     

    Yawn...

    Tell me something we didn't know.

    Oh, he hates the gays and may have been implicated in torture...??

    What a surprise.

     

    As the current, crass meme says, "If you want to hide a German, then hire an Argentinian."

    This notion that Catholics are all right wing is absurd.



    While that is certainly true, it really doesn't appear that way judging by the hierarchy.  Hence, part of why the church is hemorrhaging members.

    Probably true, but come to the Immaculate in Malden, Sunday at 11, joint is jammed.

     

    Oh, and my Knights of Columbus council is at an absolute new sign up hight.

    BTW, tomorrow at 5, said KoC will be puting on THE best boiled dinner (the RED, F the gray) you will EVER find for 10 bucks.  Ever!  The council wisely decided to put the lone mick in charge.  The red corned beef is so beautiful, that we feel guilt cutting into it.  I can get you in for free, and then make you feel guilty, since all proceeds go to Bread of Life, and squeak 20 bucks out of you - :-)

    No, thanks.  I gave up 'tooth fairy-ism' long ago.

    Can I call all of the irishmen 'micks' like you do...?  Sounds like a hoot.  

    As it happens, I'll be serving on the line for my own social club, but thanks anyway for the invite.  My latest homebrewed irish-style cream stout had them swooning the other night.

    Good luck Greg. Small world. I have many fond memories of Immaculate Conception in Malden...

    I am making my first ever corned beef dinner tonight otherwise I may be tempted to come. I wasn't planning to..but was at my favorite meat market this morning and was outgunned by my husband..son and the kid behind the counter. So..I got a small corned beef and then asked.."So..how do I cook this thing" to which the kid behind the counter gave me a printout of the cooking instructions. I started reading them and exclaimed "You mean you boil it..? You don't cook it in the oven"? At that point there were boisterous laughter behind me. I didn't realize the guys behind me were listening in..lol. Everyone had a good laugh. A "blond moment" for me I guess. Corned beef sounds so gross..to my mind the only thing grosser is boiled meat. Nevertheless..I am prepared to try something new tonight.

    Does your KofC do this thing every year?
