wrs1864: marius2: I'm an evil baby-eating atheist, but even I kinda like this guy.I feel about him the same way I feel about Obama. I might not like everything he does (or doesn't do), but I'm much happier with him than the alternatives. There is still a really long list of things about the catholic church that I really don't like (and promoting the belief in "god" is way way down that list.)
iheartscotch: Magorn: I love the fact that he was right next door, working late into the night while the concert was happening. The Church really did accidentially elect High Sparrow as pope, didn't they?Pretty much. Where Benedict XVI was ultra-conservative, ultra-oldshool with his prada shoes, Francis would prefer to live in a one room shack and give the money he didn't need to the poor./ Francis is liberal, but in the same way that Reagan would be considered liberal when compaired to RON PAUL

KidKorporate: I'll give this guy kudos for consistently doing the right thing as of the time of this post.However, it didn't take a rocket scientist or a prophet to see that the civilized world was ready to collectively run the Catholic Church out of town with torches and pitchforks and something BIG had to change.
Magorn: Tim$ter: I'm not Catholic, I'm not really even very religious, but I am really digging this new pope. Keep on, your Pope-ness. Keep on.Those of us who have had prior experience with Jesuits as teachers or parish priests had high hopes something like this would be the case, but speaking only for myself, I'm pleasantly suprsied at how far it's gone so far. (now here's hoping the farker who predicted "if a Jesuit becomes pope predophile priests won't be covered up any more but hung hanged from lampposts in Vatican City" turns out to be right too)
WTP 2: time to say it..THIS GUY DOES NOT GIVE IN TO PEER PRESSUREok back to regular business
