He won't be popular with the Diocesans, they all horde money. The Franciscans probably love him, though.

Mugato:  Isn't there something in the Bible about a rich man and a camel and the eye of a needle? Why do they have all that shiat in the first place?  There's also a line about how you should pray by yourself in private and not make a big spectacle about it.

I'm not just picking on the Catholics, most religious people are hypocritical. Except maybe the Amish but all I know about them is what I saw from "Witness" and "Kingpin".



Sure.  I agree.  I'm not a big fan of the red prada shoes that past Popes have worn or any outward luxuries.  But, I know a number of priests and I don't know any rich priests.  Some of them belong to orders which have a vow of poverty which is pretty serious.

The ones whose order doesn't have such a vow, I know they sometimes own a car, which seems to be the biggest luxury.  The cars are either donations from the parish and/or they tend to buy some cheap car or a nicer car second hand.

I know one priest mentioned they do have decent travel perks because missions exist around the world.  Other than that, I don't know what even remotely approaches the lifestyle of say... successful televangelists.

FlashHarry: you know, i'm an atheist, but i'm really liking this pope. his focus on the poor and on setting a good example really harkens back to the mission of living a more christ-like existence.


My thoughts, too, but I gotta give him some time.  Well cared for members of the Holy See possibly maybe while there's a chance they would agree with Francis in principle, they aint giving up none of their fancy, smancy trappings.

Also, I'd like to see some real balls broken with the whole farking children for hundreds of years thing, instead of just nice words about god.

dj_bigbird: I'll believe him when he liquidates the Vatican Bank and all of the assets of the Vatican.

/and opens the Vatican library to the public


The library is open to certain people from the public. Here are their admission guidelines:

http://www.vatlib.it/home.php?pag=ufficio_ammissioni

A lot of the Vatican library consists of one-of-kind very old, very fragile manuscripts. There's a little wear and tear every time something is looked at. Opening it to the public at large would vastly accelerate the destruction of irreplaceable works, especially since now they only tend to admit people who know how to handle the materials properly and can appreciate their value, in many cases that value being "priceless".

You want your average tourist from Alabama handling 600-year-old books after sweating a few gallons hiking around the Vatican just because he wants to look at the pretty pictures?

The Catholic Church has traditionally been against the death penalty and pro-social justice in modern times, which also tends to favor Democrats.  There was a time when being a Catholic made one virtually unelectable as President until JFK finally broke down that barrier, and many Catholics who were alive then are staunch "Kennedy Democrats" (like my mother).  People seriously claimed that a Catholic President would be under complete control of the Vatican and would be a puppet of the Pope.

Sweet. I thought it might be evangelical. It seems like a lot of farkwads (no offense to non-farkwad Republicans and non-farkwad evangelicals) gravitate toward the evangelical side because there are so many more options for picking a church/faith that allows you to be a complete hypocritical self-righteous farkwad. Now I'm curious about Democrats. After saying that about Republicans I bet I'm going to have to eat my words because the majority of Democrats are also evangelical. :)

brandent: Hdj_bigbird: I'll believe him when he liquidates the Vatican Bank and all of the assets of the Vatican.

He just might.  He's made statements to that effect and has recently started an investigation at the bank and appointed someone like him to get on the inside.  It's harder than it looks I bet though.  Other things he's done:

Washed feet of women.  That's a pretty big deal actually.
Said have married priests was only a matter of "policy" change.
Fired the entire bureaucracy.  Well not really but I believe what happens is they all voluntarily resign with every Pope and then are reappointed.  I don't believe he has reinstated them yet.

This is lightning level speeds of change for that institution.


Married priests is just a policy change. It was started in medieval times, when the eldest male was (a the sole heir of family property and b) had to become a priest, so all that property went to the Church. Before that, priests were allowed to marry.
For fun, Francis should fill the vacancies with fellow Jesuits. There would be major changes fairly quickly.

The guy has not used the popemobile since his election and has shunned the luxury of the papal apartments to live with other priests in a modest flat. When asked to switch his 5 years old shoes with the papal Prada shoes he replied: "why? these ones have served me well so far"

p.s. he also launched an inquest on the alleged illicit affairs of the vatican bank and a couple of high ranking priests have been arrested for money laundering

I understand what you are saying, but that is really irrelevant. Even with all of the charitable giving we live orders of magnitude beyond 90% of the rest of the world. Even in our own backyard we have people dying of treatable diseases and going to bed hungry. It's OK to say good things are happening, but it is also OK to say much more remains to be done.

Let me also clarify - I am not Catholic. I don't know how to label myself so I won't go beyond Christian. I see many professional preachers today driving swanky cars, living in mansions and doing very little to help others compared to the wealth they posses. I also see many Christians following Supply Side Jesus and the Republican party instead of the Biblical Jesus. We need to ask ourselves hard questions about whether we worship God or Mammon.

Just FTR, Catholics don't "find Jesus" - that's an evangelical thing. One of the key differences between Catholicism and Evangelical Christianity is in fact the insistence by evangelicals on having a "personal relationship with Jesus," which runs counter to Catholics needing to attend Mass communally and having the priest as intercessor. Catholics also commonly refer to "Christ," rather than "Jesus." And Tuesday night Bible studies is definitely not a done thing for adults; in fact, any formal religious study by adults is generally done only by those converting. Kids are rather the recipients of Catholic religious indoctrination, through after-school or weekend classes if they don't attend parochial schools, because a certain amount of education is required before one can receive the sacraments of Holy Communion and Confirmation.

The bible study might be non-denominational (I'm not entirely sure), but he is 100% Catholic.

He kinda pissed me off over the weekend as we were at a house-warming party where one of my friends got really drunk (as he usually does) and my other friend texted us saying we need to watch him and make sure he's ok. The reborn one actually said (and I'm typing this word for word from my texts)
"I know."
"He needs to go to church."
"The only way he will stop drinking is if God changes him"

I can't even have a conversation with the guy anymore without it being turned into some way to get me (or others) to go to church.

The only problem I have with Catholics of any stripe are a certain set of old ladies we call the Fish Fry Mafia.

CSB:

It's one thing to refuse to let someone use the relatively abandoned cafeteria for the closed catholic school in your parish. It's another thing entirely to make vague threatening statements like "You'd better not store anything in the refrigerator. We can't guarantee nothing will happen to it. In fact, if you leave anything there, we're sure that it will be ruined."

As I always say, there are more and better reasons to dislike people on a personal basis than there are in the aggregate.

I couldn't care less about proselytizing, which is no different than any other door do door peddler.  It's where they're trying to push medical and social issues that annoys me.


As a Catholic, it annoys me as well. It violates the Church doctrine of free will and Christ's admonition to "hate the sin, love the sinner." And we don't proselytize.*

quansem: /the sleeper has awakened...


Dune is one of the few movies where I can hear a line of dialogue, or see a still/clip of a scene and recite the dialogue from that point onward. (See also: Star Wars) I'm sad that the CE Blu-Ray is of such crappy quality, but what are ya gonna do?

When I get at-bats in softball, I do the "It is by will alone I set my mind in motion..." ramble; it confuses the hell out of catchers and has earned a run on an error.
