No one asked Sometimes we like New Pope Frank. Like, when he gets all Truffula tree-huggy and wants to save the Swomee Swans, or whatever , because God said, "Here is a earth-shaped planet, keep it pretty." And those times when New Pope is like, "Jesus said rich people are THE SUCK, so don't be such dicks, rich people." That's cool too and seems pretty Jesus-y.
Come on New Pope Frank you bein all Chessey and not Jesusy,I really have a problem with women what had a bortion having to say sorry and pretty please to a fellow what has little boys hiding inside his robe.What next you going to let Bristol regrow her maiden head iffin she says sorry bout all the fucking outside of marriage to all the nuns what hair burned little convent girls faces
Wait a minute. In the craziWorld of the Jesus fan-fic believers, why would abortion be any different from murdering a person who has been born. I distinctly remember one of the fan-fic pieces saying that even a murderer... even a mass-murderer... can be absolved if they are contrite! So why wouldn't that simply ALWAYS have been true for abortion????????? EVEN ORIGINAL SIN can be absolved in confession... in theory ANY sin at all should be absolved if you are contrite and resolve to never sin again (so womens post-menopause can fer shur make that claim with no qualms!!)
Did abortion get re-labeled as some new 'indestructible' kind of sin? I missed that, probably when I was slapping the priest's hands away from moving under my altar boy robes....
... because ESIS!
2016 has been officially labeled 'Anno Del Gancio di Cappotto'....
(Sounds sooooo much less war-on-womeny in Italian...no? Si.)
It's actually kind of sad, these people live a life and form a worldview from everyone elses perspective, except their own.
"Or molest or rape someone"WWJDWhat Would Josh Do?
As a ceremonial act, that has meaning to some women, great. Most of the world's Catholics live in places where the Church is still a big part of the social structure, and confession -- being a private act -- just gives them a sense of being re-integrated within the community. As it is, this only really affects those women living in communities where the local bishop is a hard-ass who wants to control their lives. As far as I can tell, local priests in areas with more lenient bishops already offer confession for this particular "sin". Anyway, if the woman isn't a believing Catholic, or doesn't give a shit what the community thinks (or she thinks the community thinks), it's nobody's business anyway.
Josh isn't Catholic. Different rules. Very different rules for him because he's the spoiled oldest son of famous people.
Will Josh be coming out of the closet now? Better check on his brothers...
Also, too: suicide.
Yeah that 'special reserved sins' part is where I am shaking my head.
Exactly. To use church language for a bit, it's a huge pastoral move. He's not changing his own opinion, but he is trying to open the door to reconciliation.
They were like "she doesn't count."
Hokie Smokes! Are we sure Frank isn't an undercover Planned Parenthood operative? If they can get the ladies to plan this right they can get at least two bortions per slut in the next year. That's a lot of fetal coin, and you still get to see Jeebus when you die. It's a win-win-win.
