    Thoughts on the election?

    The Catholic Church finds itself at a difficult time, whilst Pope Benedict set the way for change, Pope Francis still has a lot of work to do to bring the Catholic Church back to its reputable standing.

    Thank you SO much for contributing to the discussion. Although I did ask for thoughts, this generally requires the participant to move the discussion onwards. I.E: if you don't have anything to add, keep your mouth shut.

    No need to get hostile, pal. You asked a question, you got my answer. But please do try and make me keep my mouth shut in an open discussion thread.

    That's enough of that.
    You don't get to pick and choose which responses you want to your thread.

    Without the "I."
    Just Pope Francis. He is a monk.

    Seriously? This is huge even if you have no interest in religion at all. They've just elected a new leader for a 5th of the world's population.

    Yes instead of child molesting it's back to good old gay bashing :ROFLMAO:

    Couldn't care less. In fact it's hilarious to me that people do care.

    I doubt he understands himself as a leader. That's a good move, hopefully the one this church needs.

    Seriously. It's just my opinion and feeling on the matter. I'm not saying everyone else should feel the same way. Just stating how I feel about it. That is all.

    What I have to say about the clergy, church and religion in general should be left unsaid.

    However.... I wonder what's going to happen to the first person who says, "Lighten up Francis!". :D

    He is against same-sex marriage. No wonder, given his religion.
    But not against homosexuality itself.

    You clearly have some feelings on the matter or why would you post? That's like Brogan going into random support threads and posting randomly that he can't help :p

    So long as he does it shirtless, I'm good with that :whistle:

    yes, my feelings are that I don't care. I don't know how else I can make that any more clear :p

    Well just to add my sincere thanks for your opinion then :)

    I'm sorry? Without the "I"? He is the first, and has been announced as Pope Francis I.
    I think that the Catholic Church does need to be radically modernized, with Pope Benedict XVI lifting the ban on condoms perhaps Pope Francis I will rectify the Church's stance on homosexuality.
