I like this guy FAR more than the previous 2, but tots and prayers aren't what is needed. Sell off a 500lb cross two to pay for some reparations. You only have a massive amount of them

The Catholic Church has over 2000 years of sins for which it needs to atone,. In the short term, this is pretty damned big.

Bring your cheque book or fark right off back to where you came from.

I really hate going through the security screening at that airport. It's like they don't want anyone flying to the US to ever come back.

I dont want to be on this planet anymore: Bring your cheque book or fark right off back to where you came from.


Sadly it seems the Vatican does not put its money where its mouth is. There are churches across 'murica and around the world that have been shut down due to lawsuits in the past 15 years. I don't understand how the Roman Catholic church still exists.

The schools were run by Christian denominations on behalf of the government, most by the Catholic Church.

A church working on the behalf of the government. Yuck.

Fear not, for the US clergy is probably already stamping their feet and gnashing their teeth and cursing his name over the idea that the church apologize for literally anything, ever.

Maybe he can have the surviving perpetrators rounded up and burned at the stake. Then maybe I might take his apology seriously.

For the record, the Roman Catholic Church did not officially begin until July of 1054 C.E. when the Patriarch of Roman separated himself from the other Patriarch of the universal Church. Afterwards, the other Patriarchs oversaw what became know as the Orthodox Church.

No, that sounds like penance. Don't know what specific sin was committed, but I don't want to think about it.

If you inherit sin just by being born, they can too.

As a descendent of a survivor of a First Nation residential school, I'd like to recount for him the number of ways that just this one person I'm familiar with was elaborately farked over. Others can articulate it better, I'm sure, but I'd like to take a crack at it as well. And I even kinda like this pope overall.

Speak, and follow through with action. I won't hold my breath.

Apt. I've been through Pierson a few times and died of old age at least twice. (I got better.)

/  I got through Newark much faster both times.
//  Also Atlanta.

Mostly because they structure like a franchise.  You're never getting that head office money.

I'm very confused.  I have no idea what all these other references to the word Pearson are, but I live a mile from the second oldest airport in the US, Pearson Field.

The Catholic church is just an evolution of the roman Empire.

Only the places of worship remain with power.

The same will happen with the USA and the Evangelist movement

True the eastern Roman Empire exists still too and is causing problems through Putin's belief in it.

Pearson Airport is in Toronto.  It is currently slightly (only slightly) better than the black hole of Calcutta.

To be fair, they are likely already biatching about the pack of ongoing cultural genocide.

The man makes public statements as the pontiff that are far more open and inclusive than previous pontiffs.  It accounts for something better than the prior situations.

Yep.

And to be clear, that doesn't mean he is some great left wing hero, he is just a big step forward.

And whether that is reflecting him or he is a mouthpiece and PR man for others doesn't change anything.

Hamilton's like visiting a large park compared to Pearson, but I've never had any issues at Pearson.  Especially after Terminal 3 went up.

Maybe it's my British heritage and I'm naturally a patient queuer and bureaucracy-tolerant.

Aboriginal genocide playbook: kill, sequester, eliminate leaders, "educate" the kids, remove actual education, flood with alcohol and/or drugs, and then finally, apologize (without doing anything really tangible to better their lives).

Yeah. We just had a 6-hour layover in YUL. It seemed to last longer than the ride back from Porto. There's nowhere really comfortable to sit, no plugs easily available, and food is very limited. Plus, we were exhausted. All in all, it sucked.
