1. Hey, he can't be expected to change everything overnight, pal!

 

Or, really, he can't be expected to change ... period. So, ya know, stop putting pressure on BestPopeEver!

3. Best Pope Ever is a low bar.

It's still possible for him to be the best Pope yet, and still be horribly regressive on a number of topics.

Somehow being the best of the worst seems less than impressive.

10. An odd statement from the head of an organization ruled by male celebates.

Does that mean the leadership is incomplete?

you don't want to be going and using factual comments to point out obvious inconsistencies....you might be considered some sort of anti-religious bigot or something....

12. Of course not

 

They've got all those nuns on busses that they can only ignore at their peril to assume the separate but equal female leadership roles in the RCC.

Oh...wait..

13. But this doesn't apply to priests, cardinals, popes etc?

 

What, they're already whole/complete?
They choose to go against the natural order of things?

And they wonder why we mock their ignorance, bigotry and stupidity.

14. Horrors! The Pope spoke against sexism, against ideas about the inferiority of women, against

the subjugation of women, against machismo!

And Horror of Horrors! The Pope thinks marriage is a good thing!

15. I am so glad that somebody stepped up to defend homophobic and misogynistic bullshit.

 

It would have been so disappointing otherwise.


This image, he said, should inspire all believers to make a commitment to defend the “vital and energizing” vocation of marriage and to protect the sacred union that God willed for men and women.


You do understand that he is re-affirming the RCC's opposition to LGBT equality, specifically to the legalization of same sex marriage. That is not a question. That is a statement of fact.

The question is why are you defending this?

As far as the subjugation of women is concerned, any institution that opposes access to birth control is an institution that is promoting the subjugation of women. But you do understand that too. So again, why are you defending this misogynistic crap?

16. The Pope thinks marriage between a man and woman

 

and ONLY between a man and woman is a good thing!

Do you feel like you need to take a hot shower after defending that homophobic bigot?

sexism, and the subjugation of women while pretending to do the opposite. Sounds like the Republican candidates to me.

19. It is interesting to see how people interpert it

like how some see it as a support of women, and miss that he's saying, in effect, that gay marrige is causing men to beat their wives.

Yet sin introduces discord into their relationship, lack of trust and suspicion. We see throughout history the fruit of this sin, especially towards women – oppression, violence and exploitation.


Sin introduces all that into god's creation of the covenant between men and women.

When the stable and fruitful covenant between a man and a woman is devalued by society, it is a loss for everyone, especially the young.


Breakdown in marriage hurts kids, so gay marriage is bad for kids.

I'm taking this in context with everything he has said about marriage, which has nothing to do with divorce or the like, and everything to do with gay marriage being against god's will.

It's plain as day to anyone.

20. It's almost as if some see only what they want to see.

To acknowledge the truth of the matter is just too uncomfortable.

24. What do you see, is the real question

One you always refuse to answer, are you beliefs so fragile that you can't stand any questioning of them that you must viciously attack anyone who makes you think?
