This is a good PR move.
Of course, I think it was always going to be South America or Africa.

In any case, I don't think we will ever see a French Pope again especially considering the last was during the Avignon Papacy.

He said...

"When one does not profess Jesus Christ, one professes the worldliness of the devil."

He also said Gay marriage was an attempt to destroy god's plan.

Another 'proud' chapter in the Catholic church's long, often grim history awaits.

They went the wrong way. Gay-hating, anti-woman far-right kook. It's really hard to believe anyone is a practicing Catholic anymore.

I think there must be some penetration involved in every religion.

Normally we are rewarded with a suitable King.

Except that 12 year reign of the Kraken.

Wow.

The first sentence must gladen the hearts of Buddhists, Muslims, Jews and other religions.

As for the second sentence, same old same old.

Now all the posters on here who profess to be Catholic and gay know where they stand.

The problem is with the Catholic Church's tone. Social issues are almost an obsession with the hierarchy and by constantly involving itself in these debates and coming out with inflammatory, caustic comments about gays and contraception and abortion and the other stuff, it serves to turn more and more people off the church.

Look at the Dalai Lama in comparison. He himself does not support gay marriage or abortion (though he does in certain circumstances), and shares largely the same views as the Church on these issues. The difference is that he very rarely gets involved in these matters, because he is smart enough to realise that people have differing views and knows that involving himself in the culture wars does neither himself or other buddhists any favours.

Hence, he focuses solely on a positive, upbeat message, supporting the poor and speaking out in favour of peace and reconciliation and he is a widely loved and beloved figure as a result. Hindus are much the same. You very rarely see people attacking Buddhists or Hindus for their views on marriage or abortion, despite them being very widely practiced religions in their own right.

Why can't the Church learn some lessons from them?

This is a good point and it raises the question of why people want to change the Catholic Church rather than find a Church that caters to their particular needs/wants.
