I'm surprised Pope Francis has not ended up dead by now. Remember when Pope John Paul the First, said that his first priority was to investigate the Vatican Bank, they sure got rid of him in a hurry, dead in less then 30 days. Be careful what you eat Pope Francis.

The pope will do well to take notice of Ed Romero's warning. The problem with most religious organizations when dealing with these sort of problems is they generally come with a load of unhelpful baggage in the amount of out of date and ignorance based opinions built into their teaching and advice most of which is best ignored.

When you say "they" are sugesting that this pope is ANATHEMA?:)

26 That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. 27 And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.
28 Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done. 29 Their lives became full of every kind of wickedness, sin, greed, hate, envy, murder, quarreling, deception, malicious behavior, and gossip. 30 They are backstabbers, haters of God, insolent, proud, and boastful. They invent new ways of sinning, and they disobey their parents. 31 They refuse to understand, break their promises, are heartless, and have no mercy. 32 They know Gods justice requires that those who do these things deserve to die, yet they do them anyway. Worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too

This is not Vatican 3, he just made the architect of Vatican 2 a SAINT. Vatican 2 hasn't even been properly implemented yet, THAT'S what Francis is all about.

This is not Vatican 3; he just canonized the architect of Vatican 2, which hasn't even been properly implemented yet. THAT'S what Francis is about.
