“Don’t help people who molest kids” seems like a simple enough proposition, right?
The Catholic Church’s rebrand keeps chugging along.
As one might imagine, the Vatican hasn’t reported any success stories.
Pope Francis’s “cool dad” papacy is, again, all talk and no action on social issues.
The Catholic Church’s doctrine hasn’t changed, and it’s still bonkers.
The same people throwing a hissy fit over condom art used every trick in the book to pay child abuse victims less.
The installation is meant as a commentary on Pope Benedict’s opposition to condom use to fight the AIDS epidemic.
Judging by the reactions of conservatives, the Pope was serious about forging a kinder & gentler papacy after all.
The Bible, apparently, now comes with an asterisk. (*Subject to political whim.)
A new Vatican document says gays have “gifts,” and civil unions and cohabitation have “positive aspects.”
Sarkozy, currently on his 3rd marriage, is part of a larger lurch to the far-right by France’s conservatives.
Because this apparently came as a surprise to absolutely no one.
I’m not ready to name Francis an honorary “amicus Theodora” just yet, but I am becoming increasingly Pope-curious.
