hmm talking about trump? or many on this forum?
too funny this covers most of the religious right of even this forum... nice to hear a Pope being this direct to these haters like the canadian hater

Quote:


The subject of Francis’s homily at the daily Mass was hypocrisy. He criticized the “scandal” of “saying one thing and doing another.”

Many of these hypocrites, Francis implied, according to the Vatican’s text of his homily, are Catholics who act rigorously in their ritual observance but don’t apply the religion’s values to their lives. “A totally double life: ‘I am very Catholic, I always go to Mass, I belong to this association and that one; but my life is not Christian, I don’t pay my workers a just wage, I exploit people, I am dirty in my business, I launder money …’ A double life. And so many Christians are like this, and these people scandalize others.”

He then quoted a sentiment that he said he has heard expressed repeatedly: “But to be a Catholic like that, it’s better to be an atheist.”



He remarked soon after becoming pope that even atheists can go to heaven thanks to the redemption of Jesus. He granted an interview to an atheist journalist, and told the reporter that efforts to convert people to Christianity are “solemn nonsense” and each person “must choose to follow the good and fight evil as he conceives them.


gee is fighting evil like fighting racists? fighting right wingers? or are they one and the same?

OHMYGOD!!

You mean there are people who profess to be religious but who actually MISBEHAVE?, as in slaughter whole races, stone their own daughters to death, rape little boys, eat meat, or fart on Sunday ?

Like 1.5 B Muslims? 1.2 B Catholics? A zillion other biblethumpers of various stripes and colors? 100M U.S. liberals whose mantra is "YOU'RE A RACIST HOMOPHOBE"?

AND THE POPE CRITICIZES THEM?

My GOD ... why hadn't anyone told us this before? Why was this being kept a secret? Where's the media in all this?

fugging idiot!

Talking about un Christian actions - when I was 11 years old I couldn't understand why Jesus caught ( or caused to be caught, killed, and eaten) fish?

We would sing in morning assembly such hymns as 'All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small.' (The lord God made them all etc.) So why were fish an exception?

But when we grow up we quickly realise that life is full of contradictions, and people get annoyed if you point them out! Some, in simplistic reasoning even believe that ALL conservative right wingers wear black hats, and are stupid, and are evil personified.

They frequently screech it so!

Conservatives are not as smart as liberals. Just far more practical.

I just found out that my "liberal for life" brother voted for Trump. We all had heart attacks. He's a very smart guy. Laughing

I grew up in the Westboro Baptist Church. Here's why I left

What's it like to grow up within a group of people who exult in demonizing ... everyone else? Megan Phelps-Roper shares details of life inside America's most controversial church and describes how conversations on Twitter were key to her decision to leave it. In this extraordinary talk, she shares her personal experience of extreme polarization, along with some sharp ways we can learn to successfully engage across ideological lines.
