In response to UserName9's comment:
Pope Francis said the Catholic Church must shake off an "obsession" with teachings on abortion, contraception and homosexuality and become more merciful or risk the collapse of its entire moral edifice "like a house of cards".
In a recent interview, Francis said the Church had "locked itself up in small things, in small-minded rules" and should not be so prone to condemn.
It looks like Pope Francis is reincarnating the long lost 'Christian' part of the church that has been locked in the Vatican basement for far too long.
Ideological right-wingers who have banked on religious spite to fuel their politics should be frightened by this pope. Once you remove the ideology of hate and division from modern religion, almost everyone becomes a Democrat.
The GOP is going to find itself in even deeper trouble with this thoughtful and humane Pope.
You are misrepresenting what he said, just like most of the press coverage has. You slyly, like a serpent, slip in the word "teachings", which was not part of what he said in word or in implication.
then, you use this misrepresentation to launch into another one of your hate filled screeds.
What he said is fairly uncontroversial, that Christian love is being crowded out by focus on social issues. what he says is focus on love first, dogma later. That's a sound approach, IMHO.
Due respect skeeter, but I do not see a "hate filled screeed" in this post from User99, even after several readings.
Please, where do you see what I do not?
Why don't you re-read the paragraph that includes this:
"once you remove the ideology of hate from modern religion"
oh, I get it. You think everything in that paragraph is true And not just hate-spewing against Christians.
all is clear now.
