8. Thanks. Even the Pope seems to believe in tolerance not hatred of those who are different.

Pope Francis is much more a heartfelt leader than Pope Benedict was. He still has to be careful because much of the world is in this crazed mode of righteous anger over stupid stuff. God gave us free will. He gave us laws. He gave us forgiveness. We each take our own path and the consequences of our actions. Our example and kindness will go farther than trying to force anyone to be "Godly" in the way any one faith demands.

Romans 3 is on my mind today. The law can not make us holy. We must put our feet on the right path. These days knowing what that path is is the challenge.
