Jorge Mario Bergoglio background and information,
Pope Francis, the former Cardinal Bergoglio of Argentina: He is 76, and is considered a straight-shooter who calls things as he sees them, and a follower of the church’s most conservative wing. He is a former archbishop of Buenos Aires.
He has clashed with the government of President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner over his opposition to gay marriage and free distribution of contraceptives.
Besides being the first non-European pope in the modern era, the first South American pope and the third straight non-Italian pope, he also is the first Pope Francis.
Yeah, I... I know, man...
I hope he does not quit like the last guy. I mean if the holy spirit goes to the trouble of picking you to represent Jesus the son god on this planet, then the least he could do is see it through until he dies and becomes immortal.
I was watching some of it on TV just now and thinking to myself that I am really from another planet. I don’t get it at all.
What I find interesting is that the Vatican now has two Popes. Even though the first Pope Nazi resigned, he is still alive and he was apparently chosen by God. The second one has also been chosen by God .. The only way a Pope can be unchosen is to die so, how do the people know who to be loyal to ...
They do what they are told by cult leaders because there are no gods giving orders.
Thats true but perception is reality ... the people really and truly believe that Gaawd speaks through the chosen ones ...*shakes head*
So as I said - People do what they are told by cult leaders.
Chosen by God? No. You really should take the time to learn about people before making claims about them. The man was chosen by the college of cardinals to do a job. Not much different than the board of directors of a company choosing a CEO. A CEO can choose to resign without dying, so can a pope.
All we Catholics believe is that God cares enough about us silly humans to actually help us, at least if we're willing to genuinely try.
Which god, Robert?
There can be only one. -Highlander
First off, why is one invisible sky faery necessarily and more likely than many?
Secondly, assuming their is only one - which one is it? The question I asked in the first place 'Professor'?
