I like this guy despite my mixed feelings on religion.

Despite all the issues the Catholic Church has caused in the social field, I feel it's safe to say:

Best. Pope. Evar.

I think things are difficult enough as it is without these emotional people rocking the boat.

That's it, I'm converting.

He hugged baby and doesn't look evil, nor has anything to do with nazis.

Seems to me that everyone is projecting their hate for the last guy.

/Just another old man.
 
2013-04-02 01:02:39 PM
That is cool and I do like this new Pope. I can't expect him to heal the Catholic Church overnight, but so far, so good.

You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God.

Papacy is off to good start. Let's hope he goes on strong.
 
2013-04-02 01:04:51 PM
ooooooooh! A politician kisses a baby and it's big news....

Wait, this politician is all popey so everybody cries...

The last pope or two took the heat for pedobear shenanigans. Pope reboot.
 
2013-04-02 01:07:09 PM
Catholics are always kissing young boys.

Has he sent Bernard Law back to the US for questioning about the Boston pedophile situation?

This about sums it up for me. There is something that seems genuine about this guy. I hope the private psersona matches the public one.

So a catholic official is caught on film touching and putting his mouth on little boys. Business as usual I guess.
 
2013-04-02 01:09:24 PM
Hmm, a Catholic official hugging and kissing a young boy?

Yup, sounds about right.
 
2013-04-02 01:10:42 PM
Sorry, but isn't washing feet and caring for the infirmed stuff that a Catholic priest is supposed to do? What is so amazing here?
 
2013-04-02 01:11:06 PM
he knows the catholic church has suffered in the past decade or so from all the scandals.  getting closer to the people and really showing his love and care (not making a joke here) is a great way for him to rebuild people's confidence in the pope.  i'm an atheist but i can respect this guy for trying to lose all the fancy trappings of his office and actually trying to be one with the people.  i hope he's truly being sincere about it.

"Parents: Speechless after Pope hugged disabled son"

Associated Press needs to have their colons checked.

Well to be fair, he may have collaborated with Argentine death squads in the 70s...

Seems to me that everyone is projecting their hate for the last guy.

Every comment until the liters showed up was positive. How is that projecting hate?

enderthexenocide: i hope he's truly being sincere about it.


*Snert*
His job is to protect the physical assets of the largest organised crime family on the planet.
If he had to kiss babies, he will.
All politicians kiss babies to get the big money.

R.A.Danny: I like this guy despite my mixed feelings on religion.


This.

I'm thrilled that there's a Pope who feels that it's his duty to be of both the people and Christ and how they aren't mutually exclusive categories. I'm still an atheist, but I can say as a recovering Catholic that Francis has been giving me the warm fuzzies since taking over.
 
2013-04-02 01:16:38 PM
Has anyone made reference to the fact that a Catholic Priest made contact with a child?

On a side note, I'm updating my list of an individual's actions to project on the group as a whole, so far I have cops and priests.  Can anyone help me add more to my Fark hate list?  It's getting hard to keep track of all the groups I'm supposed to hate.

/I know, Welcome to Fark.

You're supposed to hate Jennifer Lawrence.  She's a whole category by herself.

I'd also be curious to see if the Vatican shifts positions concerning the coverups/pederasts while he's there. We can only wait and see. Until then it's nice to see the top dog concerning himself with the poor and committing to his vows of humility.
 
2013-04-02 01:20:14 PM
Did he leave two small puncture wounds in the kid's neck? And what did go one when he met Uncle Fester?

he was just copping a feel...
 
2013-04-02 01:21:10 PM
Wow he treated someone like a fellow human.

HotWingConspiracy: Wow he treated someone like a fellow human.


Lower the world's standards of compassion enough, and it's like an Easter miracle.
 
2013-04-02 01:23:05 PM
And why is it news/surprise that a religious leader shows some compassion?

I guess it is a sign of how far the Catholic Church has fallen in the eyes of some people that every little piece like this needs to have a big deal made of it.

Call me when a confirmed miraculous healing happens.
 
2013-04-02 01:24:33 PM
So you're all cheering this guy for merely acting like a human being should act? Call me when he does something that actually matters.

I'm not sure you want to phrase it like that...
 
2013-04-02 01:25:00 PM
Did it occur to anyone that this is the reason the church elected this guy is because they finally realized that the church needs an image make-over?

Of course this pope is genuine, but it also means he's nothing more than a figure head or puppet of the real power of the church. Something tells me this is going to be the most publicly seen and publicly active pope in history.

Smoke and mirrors, while the pope is out making the world go "aaawwww, this is a really good pope!" the bishops are jostling the pedophiles around and hushing up any scandals, tying up loose ends, and finding new ways to keep the cogs in the machine running...

Well you could do a lot worse like join the Hitler Youth or something.
 
2013-04-02 01:26:25 PM
Anyone falling for this Vatican "charm offensive" is a gullible fool. It's already made you forget about the thousands of molested kids and his involvement with death squads, hasn't it?

joonyer: You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God.


THIS. The way people act about the Pope is akin to worshiping the butler because he happens to open the door.
 
2013-04-02 01:27:41 PM
I hope he washed his hands after...wouldn't want the new pope already catching a serious disease like Cerebral Palsy. Quite irresponsible of his handlers...
 
2013-04-02 01:27:45 PM
I know that kid!

Seriously, I often have Easter dinner at his parent's house.  This year, they decided to hang out with the pope instead of non-catholic me, though.
 
2013-04-02 01:28:13 PM
So, did he catch cerebral palsy from the kid, or what?
