    With how Pope Frankie was running his mouth about the horrors of greed, the powers that be will use this as a way to kill him.

    Catholic Church doesn't like waves made. John Paul #1 was killed. He didn't just "die" of a heart problem, he didn't just "leave" his heart medicine that was only meant for his bedside half a Universe away.

    The only cool thing about being Catholic is the fact that we're seen as this very evil and borderline satanic organization shrouded in mystery and deceit. The muse is lost when we start acting like HONK 4 JESUS soup kitchen volunteers.

    I'm not Catholic anymore btw, but I can still feel the blessed wine in my bloodstream.

    So the Emperor quit, and then a legit good guy got elected into office? That's pretty awesome.

    Why is it such big news that the pope is actually helping people?I guess that says a lot about where catholicism(?) is at right now...

    This new pope is certainly a lot more humanistic than the last one, but he's still a conservative Christian when you get right down to it. I looked into his views on several pretty standard issues and wasn't happy to see that he still supports the majority of the Church's positions. As a former Catholic, and now proud atheist, I was really hoping for a pope I could really root for.

    ^He's the Pope, what do you expect?

    This guy seems like the most positive and forward thing to happen to the Catholic church in a LONG time, and I love it. Keep on keepin' on, Popey.

    Anyone who helps anybody in need is alright in my book.

    Yeah, well my honest feeling is he is probably a lot less conservative than he officially lets on at this point. But there are a lot of conservative Christians who are already not huge fans of his, so I doubt he wants to draw a lot of attention to his differences. My guess is he will have a very positive effect on the Church, will bring a lot more people into Catholicism, and bring back a lot who got fed up with some of the really conservative stuff. But he's sure as heck not going to shoot himself in the foot on day 1. He's pope until he dies, so I think he's going to slowly work on it. This is all me speculating, but I honestly feel that he is a much nice, more inclusive pope than we've ever had (that I am aware of).

    Pope Francis still condemns homosexual acts.

    Media loves him.

    Lets be honest, I have never met a true blue christian who didn't disapprove of homosexuality on some level. I hear the common phrase 'it's not my place to judge' or 'live and let live', but those are basic admissions to not approving of the behavior otherwise why not just say I'm cool with it (right?). I suppose at least they aren't out joining the witch hunt, but still...

    Anyhow, my point is he does seem to be more forward thinking than his predecessor. Given the large number of believers who don't completely approve it is hardly shocking that he doesn't (on paper at least). An inch is an inch. It's certainly better than the status quo or regressing.
