Gonz: hobberwickey: Seriously, I'm not a Catholic, but I'm quickly becoming a huge Pope Francis fan. If he doesn't get himself killed I think he might to a whole lot of good in the world./How did he become pope?Yeah, I'm another non-Catholic who's on the Frankie bandwagon. Part of me wonders if the College of Cardinals collectively woke up a day or two after the conclave and said "Holy shiat! We just elected a Jesuit who's apparently serious about being a Jesuit! Can... can we have a do-over?"The guy's not going to fix everything that's wrong with the church. He's only one man, and he's only got one lifetime. But he has the potential to do a world of good.

mjones73: MrSteve007: xanadian: Isn't Pope Francis still living in that apartment or whatever the hell it's called? Or did he finally move into the papal digs?Pope Francis is staying in the communal residence, with the rest of the staff. This is his apartment:[msnbcmedia.msn.com image 600x401]And this is his personal office:[news.bbcimg.co.uk image 464x261]He'll still use the grandiose Papal residence for meeting dignitaries, but he said he'd much rather live with the people he serves, eat in the cafeteria and be able to cook for himself in the kitchen./looks like he *is* practicing what he preaches.I'd have to agree with you, he's been going against the grain on a lot of things since being elected and I love it cause he's pissing off traditionalist Catholics in the church...
Isitoveryet: Carn: God's money? Is that like monopoly money?maybe more like monopsony?
MrSteve007: Here's the BBC article about his living quarters: "Pope Francis shuns grand apartment for two rooms"
PsyLord: I hope he didn't piss off too many people. Better go check on the armor plating of his pope-mobile.
J. Frank Parnell: FTA: blasting the "cult of money" that he says is tyrannizing the poor and turning humans into expendable consumer goods.It's different when the catholic church does it, because they're selling seats in heaven.He can talk about crap like this all he wants, but as long as the catholic church is the most opulent and decadent institution on earth it's just hypocrisy.
