James Lileks States:
Yes, yes, easy for me to say, it's not my church. New age of oppression and intolerance, and all that. Write me when hot-eyed Jesuits walk into a mosque in Qom with ten pounds of Cemtex strapped to their chest. [emphasis added]
This is hilarious!
What did those wanting a "The Nation" pope expect? They didn't like PJPII and he had appointed all but 3 cardinals (of which two voted and one is now Pope Benedict XVI) and PJPII essentially did away with the 2/3rds rule (not entirely).
If you want a church that blesses gay-marriage, endorses abortion, has married priests, and woman priests go to another church. They do exist out there, in fact I recall a recent brouhaha where one church ordained an openly gay bishop.
