two great things about the new pope

1) he's used to being completely ignored and humiliated by the civil authorities in his country!!!!
2) he seems to somewhat believe that the church should be serving the poor rather than lording it over them

1. being as the church is obscenely wealthy, will he sell the vatican art and use the funds to

do anything to help "poor" people?

4. He also helped the military junta of Argentina.

He's just another pope in the long string of right-wing ass-kissers.

6. He wants to fight poverty -- great! Can't wait for the Church to embrace birth control!

 

Any day now!

7. And if the poor don't CHOOSE birth control, they don't deserve help? If I find myself working on a

community service project, shoulder to shoulder, with someone who meets my personal criteria for being anti-fascist and, yet, whom I know is an advocate for CHOICE, even when that choice is to have a baby that I'd never bring into this world, what should I do?
