Aar1012: Get the popcorn... It's a Catholic thread
FirstNationalBastard: Aar1012: Get the popcorn... It's a Catholic threadWill the bottom be cut out of the popcorn box?
JK47: I imagine that several members of the Curia must have an absolute heart attack every time Francis opens his mouth in front of a journalist or microphone.
And Benevolent Misanthrope called it in the last thread:
Honestly - does this surprise anyone? Francis says something vague that sounds nicer than his predecessors, but is really the same old pap. The devout hail him as a great reformer. The Vatican Press Office immediately says, "He didn't say that and even if he had that's not what he meant anyway." And the sheep follow along and keep talking him up.
The Irresponsible Captain: I enjoy the dance of the bureaucracy. The Pope says "Love thy neighbor," and the Vatican bureaucracy comes out the next day saying, "except if they're gay or worship other gods."
The Flexecutioner: The Pope better sleep with one eye opened if he keeps trying to spread some truth. The Catholic Church will have none of that."The Pope was referring to 2% milk. We are confirming that there is no way it is actually 2% but way less. Closer to skim, actually."
Unknown_Poltroon: 1 in 50 of all priests, or the higher ups? I am betting the number in the higher ups is much higher. Otherwise this would have gotten cleaned up.
Intelligent_Donkey: There's such a thing as an Italian atheist?
dustygrimp: "No... no... no... You misheard. He didn't say ped0phile. He said Pete-o-phile! Yeah... everyone here loves Pete. He's the janitor who dances while he wroks. GREAT guy."
uncleacid: Francis has to stop being frank.
Capo Del Bandito: Pope Frankie says they have a problem, maybe does lowball it, but the other high ranking officials immediately go on the defensive and say there is no problem? Or are they just saying he was 'misquoted' with no corrective statement?
MutantMotherMouse: Intelligent_Donkey: There's such a thing as an Italian atheist?High rate of atheism in Italy. Centuries of religious tyranny/extremism will do that for a nation. There's hope for USA yet.
NutWrench: I thought the Pope was infallible.
Derp Du Jour: Why does the man who speaks on the mortal plane with Almighty God's wisdom and authority need to be corrected?
Inflatable Rhetoric: Where is law enforcement?Why doesn't a DA put some of these people in prison?
ciberido: He's not supposed to be infallible, at least not all the time. It's a misconception which tends to spread, either because people find the idea amusing, or because it's a way to discredit the Catholic Church.Which is silly and pointless, as there are enough other ways to discredit it.
Inflatable Rhetoric: Why people continue to give money is a mystery to me. If the money stopped coming in, they would make changes in a few milliseconds.
mongbiohazard: JK47: I imagine that several members of the Curia must have an absolute heart attack every time Francis opens his mouth in front of a journalist or microphone.I may only be in my 40's but I can't think of any pope in living memory who had the Vatican walking back his statements as much as this one. Every time he talks they balk.
Bullseyed: About 2% of the population is gay, so it makes sense.
