a lot of the comments seem to be geared towards the homosexuality paragraph, i wasted many hours of my youth in bible studies, and the bible does say its a sin. maybe if gay is your thing you might want to find a religion that agrees with you, instead of denying what your 'holy' bible says. idc what your sexual prefrence or religion is, but it seems moronic to claim you follow the bibles teachings when blatantly doing the opposite.
I don' believe that anyone here, Dave, claims to follow the bible's teachings or even wants to - I'm guessing that's what Think Atheist actually means --
i would assume that. yet this is a thread about the pope, which is religion and of course our ancestors 'mother goose' storybook goes hand in hand.
We sometimes tend to wander a bit off-thread - SteveinCO is especially bad about that --
