    Re: Do you REALLY care about the next Pope?

    It's sad that the Catholic Church, a religious body that does unparalleled work for the poor and needly, still can't let go of outdated traditions and prejudices.

    The last time I attended mass, the priest hit on both abortion and gay marriage in the homily. "Hate the sin, not the sinner." They can't even say that with a straight face any more since most people know homosexuality is not a "lifestyle choice", it's how god made them.

    This is not a matter of established scientific fact. Yet.

    Did you at some point decide what gender you were going to be attracted to or was the attraction just there?

    Shhhhh, you're just going to confuse people by making them think.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Well, it's hard to see why anyone would "choose" a preference that results in ostracism, discrimination and physical violence. Just sayin . . .

    Not sure why you would ask me this question in response to my stating that scientific fact has not been established. It has not. Would you like to respond to what I actually said, or would you prefer to kid yourself that your question is some sort of test?

    I care about my next poop far more than some stuffy old retard wearing ridiculously gaudy clothing and living like a king because the worlds population is delusional.

    There are psychological reasons that obfuscate a person's choice from everyone including them.

    Interesting that you commented on the wardrobe because I read Noonan's column today, and she wrote about his sartorial simplicity--just the white cassock.

    What is wrong with pants and a t-shirt? They all dress like it is the 1200's. Time to get with the times...
