That is NOT a 'chopper'.

Abe Vigoda's Ghost: DrBenway: Can we just move on now to the Pope Francis/Jennifer Lawrence fan fiction and get it over with?


Don't worry. As soon as he starts making strong anti-abortion speeches, the love for him will fade fast amongst the Fark liberals.


He made an anti-abortion speech. I think my exact comment was 'sigh. Just keep it out of my legislation...'

Dude's Catholic. That's not changing. He's a  good Catholic. That's a nice surprise.

what would be cool is if he sold the popemobile and just tooled around on the Harley.

/ rides it up the steps of St. Peters, whips off the sunglasses, blesses the crowd...

Capo Del Bandito: Elegy: Capo Del Bandito: robohobo: But he won't.

You mean like the how he spoke out this weekend about how he finds abortion horrid and the like? How he attributes it to a 'culture of waste'.

You cynics are silly folk, making judgements based on feelings instead of logic.

Rorschach pope?

Sometimes a pope is just a pope.

/but in this case I think you're right.

It seems quite probable that this guy who lived and worked in shiatty poor areas of a developed country saw that poor people suffer and it's *possible* that it had an effect on him. It doesn't hurt that he's a Jesuit, and if the naysayers knew anything about that particular group they'd probably be a bit more understanding on why it's not that shocking to see a Jesuit Pope be different and mean it.

So you have a Jesuit guy who worked and lived among the poor, possibly had a bit of an impact on his world view and now he's focusing on 'Take care of the poor dammit!".

I'd say it'd be more believable as a PR move if it were another European and didn't say things that are slightly different from the last Pope as well as some action insofar as dealing with current problems as they arise in the church.

But with Frankie I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt for now simply because it is a possibility.


Yeah. Given the little that I know about his life as a cardinal (and his life as a pope appears to be a continuation of that), he seems pretty sincere in his beliefs.

No, more than that: he seems willing to follow his beliefs through to their logical conclusions when putting them into practice, even if they conflict with Catholic doctrine and tradition. I suppose that shouldn't be surprising in a Jesuit pope.

Anyway, it's pretty refreshing to see some "practice what you preach."

Man i'm not even Catholic and i'm kind liking this guy.... every darn thing I read about him is exactly what I expect from a Pope.

Then I remember what the church was like 500 years ago with the death and the punishment and the screaming and witchhunting and so on and so on....

He's a cool guy though.

And America will ALWAYS bee known as the land of killing the natives and raping the land and manifest destiny, we will NEVER get past that.

Good logic you got there carbon sack.

Nice deflection with an attempt to change the subject. No one is arguing that God exists. No one in this thread has claimed that. We're talking about verifiable things like if this is a PR stunt or if Francis is a true believer. Your inability to provide proof just means you're a cynic and the kinda person who lives to be the 'know it all'.
