Oh. The breitbart angle raises its ugly head again. Instant disregard.

The first word after "breitbart" is "IGNORE!"

February 14, 2013

That is FABULOUS!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!

You deserve it!!! You BOTH deserve it!!!

FANTASTIC NEWS!!!!!! So glad to hear this - thank you for letting us know!

Feh - gee isn't that big of him.

He stirs up the shitstorm to begin with. Now he's playing pretend peacemaker.

Can you say WORTHLESS???????

February 14, 2013

Yeah, well, you make a great point.

I must tell you, barbtries, I saw this headline on MSNBC that said the next pope is expected to be more conservative.

It's just like politics here. The biggest idiots among the bad guys say the problem is they need to be MORE CONservative. And That. Is. NOT. It!!!!! That is NOT the way we need to go. The frickin' republi-CONS want to go MORE CONservative. And at the same time, the country and the demographics and the enlightenment is all moving the other way.

The Vatican going MORE conservative is NOT the way to regain the confidence of Catholics like me. And there are lots of Catholics like me. A more CONservative church won't do anything but just drive people like me away permanently. I'm already so alienated as a woman, as a mother, as the mother of a son, and also as a progressive. I just despair sometimes.

Me too. That was a hugely courageous stand to take. And she took so much shit for it.

JP2 was untouchable. Oh, Polish pope! Oh he brought down the Soviet Union! Oh he should be canonized. Oh blah-blah-blah.

Um... I don't think so. I'm a lapsed Catholic myself and this whole thing is a mortal sin and a disgrace and an abomination. It makes me ashamed of the religion I was born into and studied and was taught to revere. I just don't want any of it anymore. It's a criminal enterprise. "Suffer the little children." Indeed. And so they did.

Keep digging, kpete.

For all of us, lapsed Catholics or not.

As one of those lapsed Catholics, I want this FULLY exposed to the fresh air and sunlight. We need some serious disinfectant here. This is hideous and disgusting. And my parish priest recently turned to me wondering why the church wasn't packed every Sunday. SHEESH... Willful ignorance and denial run deeper than the GOP, for damn sure.

Stolen or not. OMG!!!!!

GOP Savior turns water into whine!!! VERY glad you posted this, Motown_Johnny!!!

EXCELLENT. Even better!

I found a clip of it on the home page - I KNEW some DUers would prepare it for later viewing enjoyment!

This version is particularly delicious!

You are NOT ready for prime time, marco. Back to the kiddie table for you, son.
