    In defense of the Church and to clear up some things,

    1. That's not really a new doctrine.
    2. Catholics don't believe that all non-Catholics go to hell.
    3. The Orthodox Churches, of which holds the beliefs of the Catholic Church but do not answer to the authority of the Holy See, is a church in schism.
    4. People sin.
    5. I think it's awesome that they brought back the Latin masses. (which is not really much in subject, but...)

    If they bring back the Latin Mass, I might consider going back. I absolutely loved the Latin Mass. It was mystical and spiritual.

    For the past 30 years, I've been listening to this Mass on Sunday mornings in my home.

    I agree with you, I think that translating the Latin Mass into English is what created fundamentalists in the English speaking world. I like things that are beautiful like that because they have a more subjective meaning and it's easier not to take things literally, as opposed to when you can actually understand the words, thereby making it easier to take things literally.

    While I disagree with what the Pope said, I don't think it's doctrinally correct at all, I do like that this guy seems to be a real "sh#t or get off the pot" kind of leader. Of course there's a huge problem that can come from this or any other stilted teaching. One thing I hope is that a more boldness in faith attitude will abound from the top down.

    That's all Jesus really wanted was for his Father's children to be faithful. Jesus was constantly getting on his crew for misinterpreting and misunderstanding but he was patient in correcting them. He knew people would make mistakes and grow.

    Wasn't it James and John who were squabbling about who would get to sit next to Jesus when he was on his thrown in heaven - right before Jesus was to be crucified? But instead of getting like "Umm, helloooo, I'm right here!" and casting them out for thinking of themselves, he worked with them and allowed them to learn what God's desires were.

    There's a lot of uncertainty. There's a lot to be disappointed by. It may start out rocky enough but I'm hopeful that this new Pope will instill a belief that God's children can move mountains and are overconquerers instead of whimpering about how bad things have gotten.

    Of course I could be wrong and we could be facing The Empire Strikes Back: The Inquisition II but I think a lot of things will be corrected down the line but still favorable results will triumph for the faithful.

    They're just pissed because they aren't tithing me. The less Roman Catholics there are, the less money we give to support their habit of expensive churches and field trips with little boys.

    yeah, the new pope is totally wrecking catholicism and ecumenicism as he wipes his butt with everything good about vatican ii (vatican ii, i hold, is probably one of the most important things that has happened in recent history). screw that guy.

    How can the Pope be doctrinally incorrect? I thought by definition of Catholic doctrine that the Pope is always doctrinally correct.

    This is one of my pet hates. By giving money to them people are supporting them and in a way saying that's their behaviour is o.k. People can say they do alot of good but there exists other charities that do the good with a whole lot less bad.

    If Oxfam built a giant multi million dollar complex with peoples donations there would be massive uproar, but you build a church and it's O.K?

    The 2 billion dollars they've paid out in compo is peoples money that they've donated. It would have been better for all parties involved to just get the priests a hooker, or heaven forbid allow them to marry.
