    @ 2 Chicureo

    I know, but thankyou anyway! :o)

    From Cardinal Vincent Nichols, no less:

    “The Roman Catholic Church is bigoted, misogynistic [ElaineB will appreciate that], controlling, judgmental, outdated and pharisaical – in the view of some its own most devoted members, according to an unprecedented official snapshot of opinion in the pews revealed by Britain’s most senior Catholic cleric.”

    At least he is in the present and not stuck in the middle ages.

    ”“Thank God for the secular world which has blown in to the murky corridors of the Vatican.”

    I bet that went down well.

    Two completely insane ideologies coming together.
    Surely no good will come of this?

    Pope Francisco met with Raul and Fidel. He met with Cristina. Then he goes to the U.S. and meets with Obama.
    Winds of change are blowing.
    The ground shakes and the old order crumbles.
    And that is good.

    Yes, very good,
    the old outdated attitudes of Argentina belong to history.
