    Pope Propels John Paul II and John XXIII to Sainthood

    Pope Propels John Paul II and John XXIII to Sainthood

    VATICAN CITY — Showing more of his sprightly personality and his priorities, Pope Francis sped two of his predecessors toward sainthood on Friday: John Paul II, who guided the Roman Catholic Church during the end of the cold war, and John XXIII, who assembled the liberalizing Second Vatican Council in the 1960s.

    Are you ****ing kidding me? Who does he think he's fooling here?

    What a joke. I can only imagine the look on the countless sexual abuse victims faces when they read that headline.

    It certainly seems a bit self serving for popes to perpetuate the idea that popes should be sainted.

    It's wrong on many levels. That's certainly one of them.

    I can imagine the look of joy on the faces of countless people in countries controlled by tyrannical regimes that knew that John Paul II cared about them and championed their cause for freedom from oppression.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.
