Organized religion is the biggest power and money grab ever invented by man..

If it were up to me, the bible would be:

1.  Don't be a dick
2.  Quietly help those who are unable to help themselves
3.  Be thankful for what, and who you have in your life.

Oh goody! Does this mean we get to go on a new Crusade to take back the holy land?

Old Christianity: Jesus washes feet of homeless men

New Christianity: Pope washes feet of little girls.
(Cause you know, washing the feet of dirty men is gay and stuff)

"If someone is washing the feet of any females ... he is in violation of the Holy Thursday rubrics," Peters wrote in a 2006 article that he reposted earlier this month on his blog.

Look, just say, "girls have cooties" ok?

FTA:  Francis has little or no interest in one of the key priorities of Benedict's papacy: reviving the pre-Vatican II traditions of the Catholic Church. ...Virtually everything he has done since being elected pope, every gesture, every decision, has rankled traditionalists in one way or another.

Good.

The bible (New Testament) pretty much says all that.

"If someone is washing the feet of any females ... he is in violation of the Holy Thursday rubrics," Peters wrote in a 2006 article that he reposted earlier this month on his blog.
In the face of the pope doing that very thing, Peters and many conservative and traditionalist commentators have found themselves trying to put the best face on a situation they clearly don't like yet can't do much about lest they be openly voicing dissent with the pope.
By Thursday evening, Peters was saying that Francis had merely "disregarded" the law - not violated it.

Why is it so difficult for people to wash their own feet?  Are you really that inflexible?!

There is great power in symbolism. This symbolism equates women as equals. Insert Ghandi quote here.

I'll join the dirty papists if they'll let me be an inquisitor.

To put a finer point on it:  the Gospels pretty much say that.  The rest of it is either "control of the masses" kind of dreck or a religious take on historical events.

Francis' decision to disregard church law and wash the feet of two girls - a Serbian Muslim and an Italian Catholic - during a Holy Thursday ritual has become something of the final straw, evidence that Francis has little or no interest in one of the key priorities of Benedict's papacy: reviving the pre-Vatican II traditions of the Catholic Church.

Thank God! Does this mean we'll stop doing stupid BS like reword the Catholic liturgy to make it even sound less sense than it did before?
 
2013-03-30 03:34:31 PM
When do the heretic burnings begin again? That was when traditional meant something.

Good.


If he keeps this up we are all in for some good times....good times indeed.

Besides, those traditionalists were all form and no substance. The day after his election I happened to walk by the local chapter of Opus Dei and they had a big sign outside their store that read "Congratulations Pope Francis" and they had tacked that sign right above the sign that said "SALE. EVERYTHING 20% OFF." It seems so prophetic now.

Yesterday, during Good Friday prayers he sent greetings and reached out in friendship by offering well-wishes to "our Muslims brothers and sisters". Christian indeed!

THIS, we could all use a good inquisition.
 
2013-03-30 03:38:36 PM
Well, enjoy this Pope while you can. Between the Curia and Opus Dei, he'd be better off cooking his own meals. Just saying.

And to think: it was the traditionalist, Benedict-appointed, cardinals that elected, quite possibly, another John Paul II, or, at the very least, another Paul VI. Maybe some of those cardinals were trying to send their brethren a message about not living in the 15th century.

If the Pope does it, it can't be wrong.

No no no, religion and currancy have only been around since have been homo sapiens, the Military Industrial complex has been at it since we was homo habilis.

The Catholic Pope is not conservative enough for American protestants whose religion was started by protesting the Catholic church's conservative stance.

I'm quite sure that acting like that is NOT tolerated by these traditionalists.  They have a very long, proud heritage of being obsessed with Divine Law above all else, and ensuring that they hold everyone, even God Himself, to the absolute literal wording of the law.

It's fair to see that this tradition is much older than Christianity, the modern ultraconservative Catholics are just the newest version of this school of thought.

/Not Catholic

A little bit of that money actually goes to feed the hungry, clothe the cold, build shelter for the homeless, provide educations, medical care, all sorts of kookie things.

-- and way to think the remarks of a few people in an article is good representation of a group that is over 1 billion strong, sillymitter.

Maybe in electing Pope Francis, the Cardinals were trying to tell traditionalists to. . .lighten up.
