R.A.Danny: Abortion is never not going to be a sin in the Catholic church. Francis never said it shouldn't be. The wailing and gnashing of teeth over it are supposed to be taken down a notch though.
Eddie Adams from Torrance: Good.Anything that hastens the Catholic Church's slide into complete irrelevance is fine with me.
xkillyourfacex: Liberals really want the pope to be something he is not.He opposes homosexuality. He opposes abortion.Don't fool yourselves.
FormlessOne: stan unusual: FormlessOne: R.A.Danny: Abortion is never not going to be a sin in the Catholic church. Francis never said it shouldn't be. The wailing and gnashing of teeth over it are supposed to be taken down a notch though.Good luck with that. This isn't about religion - it's about power. The CatholicsBishopsin the United States are firmly welded to the Republican right, and they know, full well, that religious & political power march hand in hand.Out past the altar rail, the politics are far less uniform.Really? Looked like a fairly uniform crowd in that room - they're even dressed the same. I don't care how far the flock wanders from the altar - if the asshole behind it is preaching hate, and the flock still shows up, how much more am I supposed to respect the flock compared to the shepherd?
praxis44241: So the church is now run like a governmet now, where the legislative power can c*ck block the executive office?At what point did these bishops get the right to veto the Pope?
Dougie AXP: and if that were to happen I would gladly return to the Roman Catholic side again. The reason I left is because I got tired of the rhetoric focusing on people lives and behavior rather than focusing on social justice and truly helping the poor. It was easier to affect change by myself and the bonus was I got to sleep in on Sundays
Snarfangel: Isitoveryet: xkillyourfacex: Liberals really want the pope to be something he is not.He opposes homosexuality. He opposes abortion.Don't fool yourselves.and he's entitled to his opinion, as is everyone, and when you publicly announce that opinion, prepare for the public backlash./I have nothing but respect for the current Pope, more so than i have had for any religious leader, ever.More than...Jesus?
Isitoveryet: meat0918: Isitoveryet: in America this world, if the Religious message doesn't jive with local political message, there's going to be a problem, m'kay?Hell, if it weren't for the American versions of Religion, people would be asking the question, "what's a Republican".FTFYdarn it meat, i'm trying to bash American religions and their hate filled message, not the worlds hate filled messages!
Lando Lincoln: "The question of abortion will remain as very important," said Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, Texas, after the vote at the national assembly in New Orleans. "There are pillars to the house and it is one of the pillars."Yeah, Jesus really railed on and on and on about abortion. That guy never farking shut up about it.
Dragonflew: American Bishops Keep Focus On Abortion And GaysWhat about the kiddy-diddling? Won't someone think of the children?
Lionel Mandrake: Hey, when you've been ignoring Jesus for so long, ignoring the pope is easy.
