"Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, the retired archbishop of Washington, said the new pope must first of all be able to communicate the Church's message, especially to the young.

"You don't necessarily need a rock star, but you need someone who can talk to young people," said McCarrick, 82, who has passed the age ceiling of 80 and cannot vote this time."

It would be great to have a cool Pope like John Paul. (Or Father Guido Sarducci)

Seriously though, someone who does for the Catholics what the Dali Lama is doing for Buddhism.


Here's a message from God for the new Pope:


1. Popes, Cardinals, Bishops & Priests need to do what Jesus would do.

2. It's okay for women to be Popes, Cardinals, Bishops & Priests.

3. All pedophiles get excommunicated and go to prison where they can truly contemplate the word of God.

4. Popes, Cardinals, Bishops & Priests can marry and raise families. (They've done it before and the world did not end.)

5. Gay people can be Popes, Cardinals, Bishops & Priests. But if they are pedophiles they get excommunicated and go to prison.

6. Dump the Old Testament. We only hung onto to it market Christianity to the Jews. If they haven't joined up by now, they never will.

7. Re edit the New Testament, cut all the marketing bullshit out of it, bring back any testament that was from anyone who hung out with Jesus.


I've got more but by now, no one is listening.

Some Catholic scholars speaking on the resignation on KQED (including one of my thesis advisers by-the-way). No brilliant breakthroughs in thought, but gives one a bit more insight to how committed Catholics look at the issue IMHO.

She won't believe you.

Molesters look to Catholic employers because hiring is less stringent than at public schools. My college track coach (I went to a Catholic college) was molesting our top runner since she was thirteen. He went from Catholic school to Catholic school coaching girls teams. I testified against the bastard who was found guilty in a civil case. Last year he was coaching kids in Indiana. Because of a google search by some parent that turned up the court case from so many years ago, the guy was fired.

Of course she'll believe it. She knows ALL the charges are true. Doesn't change her perspective about defending the catholic church because that defense has nothing to do with pedophilia nor 'histronics' about pedophilia.

I don't expect you'll explain the real reason for this long term impassioned defense of the catholic church, now will you jennie?

But if Ivan the Terrible-Chipper turns out to be a Catholic Priest...I may go round the Merry-go-round a few times for Wes' sake :-)

The only reason I think the Moron church is (marginally) better than the catholic church... if you can't get your eternal truths right the first time, just tweak them as you go... revelation is a wonderful thang


http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/55930173-78/church-lds-changes-mormon.html.csp

"The Bible and the Book of Mormon teach that monogamy is Godís standard for marriage unless He declares otherwise (see 2 Samuel 12:7Ė8 and Jacob 2:27, 30). Following a revelation to Joseph Smith, the practice of plural marriage was instituted among Church members in the early 1840s (see section 132). From the 1860s to the 1880s, the United States government passed laws to make this religious practice illegal. These laws were eventually upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. After receiving revelation, President Wilford Woodruff issued the following Manifesto, which was accepted by the Church as authoritative and binding on October 6, 1890. This led to the end of the practice of plural marriage in the Church. "

Religious organizations can be like discriminatory country clubs...If you belong to a specific church then one has the potential to be rewarded with employment and monetary gain much like a god old boys club..When religions move in and monopolize a community , non-members suddenly become descriminated against....Rumor has it that the Mormon Church is infiltrating the eastern sierra via Mammoth Mountain and other public agencies....If true , i find this repulsive and perverse...What does the free market have to do with spiritualism and or religion....?

Seamstress,
Get a load of this course.

The last three sessions look interesting. David Kennedy worth the price of admission alone.

All I remember about Vatican II is that it ushering in the God-awful guitar mass.
