    The Catholic Church, as with other Christian institutions, will become irrelevant unless they distance themselves from the Democrat Party and the Liberals. These Christian institutions were originally sucked in by the Liberal facade of helping the poor, etc., etc. and the the Church failed to adapt as the Liberals became the party of "What's Happening Now!", be it love of homosexuality, ridicule of traditional families and fathers, love of Muslims, all of the Liberal Democrat programs that attract the unusual among us. The "Helping the poor" routine for government, of course, is to steal from those who don't vote Democrat and reward those who do vote Democrat.

    The Catholic Church will have to loudly and affirmatively renounce the Democrat Party, Muslims, homosexuality, pop culture, Hollywood, large Socialist government and all of the things the Democrats are using to destroy America or the Church truly will become irrelevant.

    Christians will not lose their faith, they will simply go elsewhere for a stronger affirmation of their faith and a stronger condemnation of the evil represented by the Democrat Party.

    Liberals...wut?


    Liberals are not at the root of all your demons...regardless what Rush and Sean tell you. You may want to sniff the air outside the RW bubble every now and then to see what's really happening in the place the rest of us call reality.

    Are you able to understand that your "reality" is not a reality that others want for themselves, their families or their children? Look at the Poll chart above, dripping with sarcasm, hatred and ridicule of the faith of complete strangers that the OP will never meet. Is that ugliness the reality you cherish?

    Re: Do you REALLY care about the next Pope?

    I care in the sense the Catholic church needs to be cleaned up and modernized concerning marriage of priests and allowing women to be ordained.

    I was born Catholic and believe in the Saints and Heaven and Jesus .
    I don't think it is the Official Church of God it alludes to.

    I'm ticked that pedophile priests are not in jail by the truckload.
    i mean the new Pope should address that issue...

    pay off the abused and allow the pedophiles to hide under the robes of the Popes.
    Cause that is what it seems right now.

    Wars of religion, how sweet,
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Interesting.

    You'd think there's nothing else in the world that's of any importance.

    Cardinals head to conclave to elect pope for troubled Church - Yahoo! News



    Why the hell is this such a HUGE news item?

    Outside of Vatican City, who really cares?

    Do you?
    Does a pope really effect your daily life?
    Do you honestly have a personal stake in who the pope is?
    Does your day change at all depending on what the pope says or does?

    Is this "next pope" phenomena really that big of a deal?
    I was interested to learn how the process works, but that's about it. I guess the next pope is supposed to be the last one, so that'll be interesting.

    Cherishing something is not relevant to accepting reality. Lot's of things in reality are things I definitely do not cherish. Cancer, for example, is not something to cherish. But, knowing about cancer is a good reason not to smoke cigarettes.

    Seeing the Catholic Church as overly Liberal, blaming everything that is wrong with it on the Left, instead of addressing the fact that it's ultra-conservative constructs regarding human sexuality, like celibacy for male priests, and their insistence of keeping females away from positions of power, is not helpful. Leaving a bunch of sexually dysfunctional men in charge of the institution while shouting aloud about Liberal conspiracies is like letting a baby's head sink under because you're attention is focused on maintaining the temperature of the bath water.

    If you could care less, then you must care a bit, in order to care less than that. Just sayin'

    The BBC was winding us up with a scrolling announcement, "The new pontiff has been elected, and his name is...... to be announced shortly.


    Pope Francis the First is among us.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.
