    No, she acts like a know it all and then I tried to correct her and she got smug again so I put her in her place.

    Who doesn't like St. Francis? He was a gentle saint who preached to animals.

    A lot of protestants like the Prayer of St. Francis: "Lord, make my an instrument of thy peace....".


    I would not expect the Catholic Church to pick a pope that isn't conservative on social issues.


    I heard some really good things about the new pope, from his time as Bishop in Argentina-humble kinds of things. He lived in a regular apartment rather than the traditional Archbishop's palace in Buenos Aires, he rode the bus instead of riding in a limo, and cooked his own meals. I think that the kind of person who chooses to forgo all the opulent trappings of his position, however beautiful and traditional they may be, is the kind of person who average people can relate to because they will know that he understands them.

    I'm sure Jesus would have done the same. Carry on.

    The Italian Pope who wasn't.........
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

As for priests being able to marry, I take it you're not Catholic. There is a commitment in becoming a priest. Only in liberal land do the goalposts need to be reset in order to fit their worldview. And, finally, since you decided to be even more stupid with your last line, considering that there was no such thing as the Catholic Church before or during Christ's life, your statement is moot.


    Nice to know you put me in my place. It's sooooo manly.

    And yes, it was a joke. You need to learn how to read one. I actually ripped it off of a conservative friend of mine online.

    The whole idea about Jesus coming down was 1) To be saved/redeemed and 2) To no longer live by legalism.

    This idea that a priest suddely can't get married anymore is more legalism, not less.

    Has it ever occured to you that some things might have been made up by man and not God? God doesn't want us to rebell, but he doesn't want us to be mindless either.

    And yes, I am Catholic. First, I converted back to Christianity after years of absence (not excusing my behavior, but people like you didn't help lead me back, and you probably won't help lead others back either). Then, I realized that the church wasn't supposed to be split, so I joined the RCC. I also liked that the RCC seemed to value thinking more than the other denominations I had been in the past. Nice to be proven wrong about that at times.

    How does having an opinion make me anti-religion?

    Do you agree with everything your denomination says?

    Bridget...your misconseptions and twisted ideology that religion should bend and adapt itself to YOUR liberal worldview are well known.

    You never say things as an opinion anyway.

    You have an annoying habit of stating thigs as fact and getting pissy when we don't agree with you.
