You know what, you go to hell Francis. Everything this "pope" does is so political correct it's ludicrous. Might just as well be a big PR firm saying this stuff .. oh wait.

They were there. They were just pandering to a crowd that was growing smaller and smaller. Old Catholics are dying off. Diocese are merging or closing up shop all over the place. Seminaries are empty. The younger generation was running from the church. So they bring out Francis, he circlejerks all over the place, and now the youngin's are back in the pews, forking over dollars to the collection plate.

This pope is all talk. They probably had him in a glass case that said "Break in case of Public Relations Emergency". Meanwhile, Ratzinger (who now lives in a cozy mansion) gets left off the hook for financial scandals, which everyone just forgot about when Francis came to town. Oh, and the pedophilia, let's not forget that! But wait, we have, because Francis said "Save the whales, war is bad".

Making your name "fatpeoplesuck" is not... extremely Christian. I mean, you seem to be deliberately hurting people's feelings.

Being glutinous is also not very christian.

This Pope does not decide who is Christian. Only who is Catholic. So FAIL in that regard.

Its amazing this Pope is like a Communist - if you read his proclamations without context one might wonder if some were Lenin quotes.

Ah yes, but only Catholics are real Christians, so it's all internally consistent at least ...

You should read up about some bloke named Jesus, he's like a communist extremist. He gave away loads of stuff, helped the poor but didnt charge them any fees, and was against the rich and money changers. There's also other bits in the book about thou shalt not kill and other pussy PC stuff like that. It's enough to make you sick.

Eh... I don't think he would have advocated forced redistribution of people's property but rather charity.

Is this the fucking 1960's? How is communism still a bad word? Yes he's gone against the financial establishment but with good reason, dick cheney started a huge and expensive war and ended up working with the same people that profited off of it.

That's the thing about Christianity. Anybody can define it however they want because it's based in esoteric interpretations of ancient texts that have been transcribed thousands of times and often disagree with themselves.

That being said, it is pretty obvious that the God of the bible isn't anti-violence.

God is pretty pro-violence for the majority of the Bible in whatever state you read it. But Jesus was very much anti-violence, and his supposed values carry a lot more traction these days than previous prophets.

Just to be clear...there are things he decrees as Pope, and then there are comments he makes as just his personal beliefs. This is the later.

Translation: Anything the Pope says that makes Christians happy and doesnt challenge them is the word of God, and anything the Pope says that makes Christians uncomfortable is "just like his opinion, man". Ok. Got it.
