    I am not saying Jesus is not compassionate towards sinners, never said that actually, what I AM saying is that he did not ignore their sin as many people here at DP try to assert incorrectly. He said to go and sin no more.

    He did not have to list every sin, and the notion that Jesus had to list every sin is quite frankly idiotic. He didn't list Child Porn either or Rape, does that make those sins ok?
    funny coming from a very conservative person. they are usually the ones that tell us that if something isn't specifically listed out in the constitution 200 years ago then it is unconstitutional today. and as for the notion being idiotic... Jesus was rather plain spoken and generally did a good job of not mincing words... which is what pissed people off at him back then... so no, not that idiotic.

    Flaming will not be tolerated and i have reported the comment. And I have addressed with you, and others, on this forum the difference between the sacrificial/dietary laws and moral laws.

    sure. if you dont much care about what Jesus said. seems to me that if you are a follower of Christ then that red ink is by FAR the most important words in the bible. in my experience, most Christians couldn't tell you much of anything Christ was trying to teach people. they are only concerned with his birth and death sans a couple miracles here and there. when it comes to modern Christians engaging in political conversations, one tends to find Jesus thrown under the bus simply because they much prefer the fire and brimstone is the old testament because it allows them to feel holy while they throw those hefty rocks at everyone from their glass houses/chrystal cathedrals.

    Did I say I don't care about what Jesus said? No, that is your spin of what I said, not reality. What I said was, His words are not the only words in the Bible. His job was not to list each specific sin, He didn't mention rape afterall, did He mention incest? No, but I think you would agree those are wrong too....

    I'd appreciate your providing a little evidence to support your claim that this Pope "consistently defends pedophile behaviors." Then maybe you can explain what the "Nun revolution"--whatever that is--has to do with pedophilia. Godwin points for bringing up the Inquisition, though.

    Francis continues to distance himself from Benedict. Thoughts?
    How has he damaged himself from Pope Benedict? The Roman Catholic Church has never condemned homosexuals, only homosexual practice.

    As for who he is to judge, hopefully the new Pope will realize he is the ultimate judge within his organization of those priests who molested altar boys, and he'll take less of a detached agnostic stance on judging the hell and Catholic Church association out of them!
    You don't trust Trump? Well, there's only one way to leverage him to do what's economically right for us all: Powerful American Political Alliance. Got courage?! .. and a mere $5.00?
