Pope Opens Mouth; Inserts Foot

Pope Opens Mouth; Inserts Foot
So many people, including secularists praise Pope Francis for being "reasonable" and in touch with the times.

And then we get this:

http://news.yahoo.com/pope-says-cannot-i...45221.html

Quote:But the 78-year-old pontiff also said "each religion has its dignity" and "there are limits".

"You cannot provoke, you cannot insult other people's faith, you cannot mock it," the pontiff said.

"Freedom of speech is a right and a duty that must be displayed without offending."

This from the leader of the organization who bandied about words such as blasphemer, heretic, spawn of Satan and who knows what else over the centuries. Guess what jackass, we'll continue to insult your worldwide criminal enterprise any time we wish.

I don't think this latest Papal utterance is going to help him on the PR front.

Why are the religious so afraid of mockery and verbal insults? Can't their god do something about it? I'm guessing they don't like it because it is working to make them look like fools.

And let's not forget the fact that he officially revived exorcisms as an important practice of the Church, for 'fighting demons'.

They just can't stand it when people laugh at them.

In that, they are all alike.

Maybe if they got rid of the stupid hats?

They were good Christian soldiers after all.

Is this anything but an exploitation of a recent tragedy for some cheap points against church critics? That makes it particularly despicable.

Oh Francis. You fumbled the ball. You can't have free speech without insulting somebody. Especially extremists, who tend to go off at the drop of a hat.

Good video to watch, if you want to know how common the Jesus story really is.

In other news, the Vicar of Christ points at the hemlines of rape victims and proclaims, "The bitches were asking for it."

Yeah, his words are saying "don't mock," but all I'm hearing is "don't criticize."

If you can't handle mockery of your beliefs, it just means you're insecure about them.

Also, I wonder if Francis thinks people should afford a lack of religious beliefs the same right?

Min, the hats are symbols of connection.
If you look up Dagon the fish god, you will see where the pope got his headgear from.

I wear a knit hat in winter (it's cold here) and sometimes a baseball type in Summer.
Does that put me in with you guys?
