I am very pleased with the new pope, though I note that he has made it clear that women in the priesthood is still out of the question. All the more reason to be a Protestant, in my mind. :D

He's pretty cool. I agree I'm a Protestant and I have certain biases that keep me in the Protestants no matter how I admire Catholics. The Hierarchy is one of them.

Can I be a Catholic atheist? How do I sign up for that?
One of the hallmarks of freedom is that when you recognize someone is being intellectually dishonest or arguing with you in bad faith, you have the option to walk away without being punished, imprisoned or tortured.

there you go. all you have to do is be Santayana. I guess if you give me something for Chrsitmas you are my Santayana. Ooooo sorry!

My Grandmother told me when I ask if Santa was real "If I give you something for Christmas I'm your Santa." Yes, my grandmother was Santa Clause.

As popes go, he's pretty amazing. Female priests are next! Cats marrying dogs! Maybe he'll start small with female altar attendants.
