Gay Regional Message Board
I'd accept their apology if it were sincere. That would mean endorsing LGBTQ marriage, LGBTQ priests, LGBTQ civil rights, hosting LGBTQ programming, perhaps actually housing some LGBTQ groups, probably the ordination of women, and abandoning the party line of "sex is only for procreation." It's hand to forgive someone while he's still punching you in the nose.
With popes JP 2 and Benedict, they were a major part of the problem. I think it fairly clear that Francis is probably personally on the side of the angels, but it's unclear whether he will have the capacity to do something about it in so vast, ancient, and byzantine an oganisation as the RCC. Perhaps over the long run, he can appoint more enlightened bishops, publish more progressive encyclicals, encourage reforms, etc.
The RCC is dying on the vine in western Europe, North and South America, and elsewhere. The pedophilia scandal is only the most recent revelation of the RCC's secrecy and their smugly superior attitude that they knew best and the people should always adapt to their will. Because of their:
(1) failure to protect children from sexual predators;
(2) insisting on banning birth control on a planet bursting at the seams with excess population;
(3) attempting to subvert women into inferior roles and especially not ordaining women as priests;
(4) not allowing clergy to marry (or have true significant others), isolating their leadership from one of the most important institutions in the world and promoting sexual hypocrisy;
(5) teaching poverty and abstinence, yet practicing institutional gluttony and ostentatiousness;
...and the list goes on and on and on....
they will continue to shrivel and be viewed as irrelevant.
I would note where the RCC IS growing, most notably Africa, the church hierarchy intentionally looks the other way as priests marry (sometimes multiple wives) and father children.
It's said the pope wields enormous power until he tries to use it. IMHO, Francis is the best thing that's happened to the RCC since Vatican II, but it's still unclear what he may accomplish.
I still have some western boots I had in HS. I own at least one t-shirt from 20 years ago that I can comfortably still wear.
I have other vintage shirts from HS, college, and graduate school that are too small for me currently, but I will presumably be able to wear again as my soon-to-be gastric bypass works its magic on me. I also have leather shorts and chaps that I'm looking forward to being able to fit into and wear.
You don't realize how poorly fat persons' clothes fit and how well skinny peoples' clothes fit until you go up and down the weight chart; because of this, some designer clothes don't go higher in the waist than 34 or 36....
Generally, if you are still the same weight you were when you graduated from HS, congratulations! If you're still the same weight AND still have the same waist size, SUPER congratulations!
Teens, if you're at all overweight, the time to lose that weight is NOW. It will only get harder as you age. Carrying around excess fat has a long, long list of detrimental effects on your health and self-confidence.
I was 140 kilograms in highschool, I'm only 93 now. I say I've done well.
Soooooooo I was wondering: am I the only one around here who likes soccer?
I'll watch it, but I prefer rugby and hockey.
I hate soccer :p With a passion! lol :D
Oh, no! I really like it. Couldn't believe Chile beat Argentina, and am even more stunned that Iceland overcame England.
That is so true. :D Still I prefer other sports where politics don't really go into the game. :D
