Did this guy not say gays were evil and such his second day as pope?

I like what he is saying, but I want to know the specifics as to what his perspective is of what it means to be "good".

The pope is a respectable guy

I've been kinda proud to be Catholic since he was elected

That moment when the catholic church realises its losing control of the people, and quickly pushes a new guy to power, telling him to do and say things that will fool people into thinking that Catholicism is anything other than pointless ********.

The spokesperson for the vatican says it's not true, if you're an atheist you go to hell. So I think this was all on the pope.

Potentially. Or the spokesperson is saying that to make the pope look good.
Or any number of things. You've got to keep in mind that vatican and the catholic leaders are some of the most manipulative and despicable humans to ever walk the face of the earth.

I stand corrected, potentially some of them are okay human beings.
I say nothing for the actual catholics, the masses, the people.
They are simply manipulated, catholic because of their parents etc.
It isn't their fault.

Either that or he's actually involved into the shenanigans of the Bank of Vatican money-laundering.
He's too good to be real, in my opinion. From the minute I saw him, he seemed like a marketing product to me.
But if he is actually legit... I'm guessing time will tell.

I feel that Francis saying nice things about the atheists, is like Obama saying nice things about the Republicans.... sure it sounds good right now, but both are going to get hit in the balls as a reward since they both are angry little edgy ***** who have defined themselves as being opposed to whatever it is you believe.

I'm not an astronaut, i'm no fisher.... but I don't go around saying "HEY I DON'T FISH".

Same concept.

The only angry atheists are the minority of them that occasionally come on the internet looking for religious discussion. Other than that, most atheists only get ticked at religion when ridiculous ideologies and fallacies are being brought up by the religious, like morality and creation myths.

Atheists not only tolerate the "angry atheists" they pretty much give them prominent positions. It's very near feminism in it's faux condemnation of the stupid and angry....

Just to make an example of the latter, they say "we don't believe that men are all rapists", yet they invite radical feminists to speak at their events and read Dworkin in their classes.

Atheists, also do the same with their angry bitter celebrities.... it sends a conflicting message and you have to excuse me if I call ********. And I have to mention once again that people without an agenda, usually don't define themselves but what they DON'T do.

Does this mean to imply that before all atheists were regarded as scum, simply for not believing the same thing?

I'm Catholic. I'm for gay marriage, I'm pro choice, I have plenty of agnostic and atheist friends, I go to church a few times a month, I never shove my beliefs down people's throats....

It's amazing how we use stereotypes. I honestly don't know many Catholics who fit the "stereotypical " mold.

This should be for every religion. No one has the authority to judge if someone is going to hell or not. that is up to God. The Catholic church doesn't say that any person with different religious views isn't going to be saved either.

I doubt that is what he means by good. He may not like those (though if I remember correctly, he doesn't care about homosexuals, but I could be wrong,) but I doubt he would condemn people for them.

What's the point of faith if the religion itself adjusts to the new - era of "followers"

In other words: isn't it a bit hypocritical to follow the religions "changes" as in:
One day, something's wrong - unnatural, the very other something's totally good - right

"Sigh" - English ain't my main language but please bare with me (I'm actually trying to start a discussion here since im quite curious about other people's perspective on religion/faith itself)

Apart from that i've never been a part of any religion-religious group
I kinda believe that everyone should have their own inner-belief etc



~ What about you ?

[Apologies if this's a serious question, on a site that receives "questions" with negativity - i'm just well curious]

Everyone should have their own understanding and take on faith, even if some common ideas are shared. It is hearing of differences that help us to learn more about not only other people but also ourselves.

It's less about changing the faith and more about not being a huge asshole to people who don't share that faith.

I agree with your point, however the Catholic Church tends to say that it hasn't really changed over the years only made implicit doctrine Explicit. This concept that atheists can go to heaven was explicitly defined in the 60's in Lumen Gentium and probably has its roots in Aquinian Theology.

I would say it doesn't make much difference changing things now when everything has been rewritten through so many languages and changed to political will over the last 2000 years, what you're reading is far far from the original or what was intended.
