>>>The capitalization is for emphasis incidentally. It's all the site has.

You could try using facts and evidence? It would make a nice change.

Tom, you're addressing yourself, not anyone else on this forum. Unless there's someone out there who agrees with you, of course, but if they do, they seem to be hiding.

Oh dear, shouting won't get you heard Tom. And it won't make you right either.

I think some of 'Tom's' other comments now deleted were repeating his post and an extra asking for the duplicates to be removed.

Tom/Paul is either a comic genius or completely lacking in self awareness. I'm going for the latter.

Withnail says:
He is squirming like a worm on a hook. He is saying "of course I love gay people it is the Catholic doctrine, it's always been the catholic doctrine". And "of course gay people don't really exist, it is a behaviour that they can be cured from". And "you are the one who hates gays because you are standing up for their rights".

It must be really difficult to hold so many opposing views at the same time.

Henry James says:
Here are the first couple of paragraphs, and the link:
"Four months into his papacy, Francis has called on young Catholics in the trenches to take up spiritual arms to shake up a dusty, doctrinaire church that is losing faithful and relevance. He has said women must have a greater role - not as priests, but a place in the church that recognizes that Mary is more important than any of the apostles. And he has turned the Vatican upside down, quite possibly knocking the wind out of a poisonously homophobic culture by merely uttering the word "gay" and saying: so what?

In between, he has charmed millions of faithful and the mainstream news media, drawing the second-largest crowd ever to a papal Mass. That should provide some insurance as he goes about doing what he was elected to do: reform not just the dysfunctional Vatican bureaucracy but the church itself, using his own persona and personal history as a model."

Maybe there is hope for salvation.
