In all due respect the 85 year old pope is an intelligent person. The problem is that the world and its people have changed. We have moved ahead out of the dark ages. The church has not, and condemns modern day christians for being too progressive.<quoted text>What does the Pope know, are you sure he can even cipher ?
Today there are several wedges that divide catholics. We have over 100 and counting women who have been ordained priests. We have the abuse scandals, the vatican money laundering scandals, the bishop liars, and coverup artists, we have catholic priests NOW in several countries that have formed unions or associations because they believe they have been mistreated, we have 2 investigations by the church on 47,000 nuns in america, we have catholics/priests who want optional celebacy, we have catholics who want women ordained........etc.
A church truly divided, and I have posted about EVERYONE of these topics on here and catholics hate me for it, and the end result is CATHOLICS don't want to ever blame each other, NO! they want to blame it ALL ON ME!
ITS ALL MY FAULT!(laughing!)
