I like it. To be quite honest, the thought of an Irish Mic from the US scared me. What especially concerned me was all the nattering naybobs from the US who they interviewed who were visiting the Vatican who were bleating on with their stupidities about women priests and other nonsense. Though I do have to agree with the lefties about celibate priests ... in the first world, it has created a club of falsetto-voiced men who live in a closet. Not so sure about that in the second and third worlds, though.
The essence of what is Catholicism lies outside of the US. The Argentinian is going to have a better grasp of this than some doofus from the west.
Personally, while I don't know about Francis specifically (beyond a brief headline that he's pretty conservative), I do think that they were wise NOT to go for an American. Numerically Catholicism has a stronghold in South America and is growing in Africa. It looked to me like picking an American would be an attempt to pick up numbers here, and that sort of thing seldom works out well.

Certainly was moved by mention of his concern for the poor, and asking the crowd to bless him. I don't think he faces easy issues in the church, either practically or spiritually.

I am sure that yours is throbbing joyfully in the knowledge that your religious needs are met by a cabal of gay pedophiles. Francis certainly looks light in his loafers.
No lighter than your closeted boy in the Oval Office...

I was thinking that the Cardinal from Manilla would be the new leader.

Francis has a history of living an austere lifestyle as bishop, that is an excellent example that needs to be seen by those in power.

Oh, c'mon Karl. It's your own personal code for black people.
No it isn't, people who are not black have been described as Third Worlders.

"Invasion from the Horn of Africa" is the only code I have to refer to blacks, in this case black Somali Muslims.

That's irrelevant.
Listening to the news media drool over the selection, one would think that God's rules are subject to majority vote. I even heard Fox RADIO coverage talking about women priests, the Church's position on gays and other such pop-culture nonsense.
If people don't like the Church's positions on those matters, there are plenty of liberal options to choose from in the Protestant world.
The Church doesn't need to change what it believes in. It does, however, need to do a better job of teaching WHY the old ways work, and putting them into a common sense format that relates to people's lives so that EVERYBODY can understand the traditions.
You know, as I watched all those mostly old, mostly white guys in elaborate red robes lined up to go into their conference (beautiful sight though it was), it was pretty hard not to think about the women outside. Always outside. And thinking about some very real concerns being brought to the church by some of those women (recalling that many have also taken vows of faithfulness to the church), I really have to doubt whether those men are truly best positioned to hear and lead all that God has for them to hear and lead.

But nary a peep about Islam and its treatment of women...

Huh?

Karl routinely uses the term third worlder in relationship to American blacks, most of whom have been in this first world country for generations.

I do not recall that you have either. What is your point?
Your Johnson has apparently taken all the oxygen from your brain, and that's why you can't remember that I'm the biggest critic of Islam on here.

Awwww, did it hurt it's widdle ego?

Look, you wanna have a serious conversation about Islam and women, that would be wonderful. Start by inviting some Muslim women into the conversation.

On the other hand, if all you want to do is bash some folks you want to feel superior to, well, pick on someone who is in the room to be able to fight back.

I frankly see no indication that you, or most of the people who post here give two figs about Muslim women--except to call them names and maybe to accuse them of contributing to a demographic shift that scares the pants off of you.

Most blacks are in a Third World mindset. Their living standards would be third world without massive transfers.

The term isn't limited to blacks, I use it to describe a variety of groups.

Why do you deny the right of a people to preserve themselves?

Why do you hate nations?

Why do you want the West destroyed?

I certainly have not.

The Catholic bashing here is epic, yet you cry about the poor put upon Muzzies who treat women like chattel.
Your dhimmitude reaches new lows every day.

I intend to present my ideas, and I think that people will agree unless they are self hating leftists like yourself.

Compared to TPM, or AR-15 General Discussion, it's tame.

At least Islam can be criticized on here, far too many sites protect the ROP.

I do not get how progressives who charge the right with a war on women because we want to save unborn women and men, are defenders of the Muslims that actually rape women in the streets of Cairo.

Ever seen a D pol rip Morsi live on the floor of Congress?

Clueless. Columbus, very large Catholic population. I'd suspect there are quite a few here. Most probably aren't as belligerent or downright insulting as some others here.

I'm Catholic.
