Popes and Dopes
Wall Street Journal, by James Taranto

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 3/14/2013 5:17:27 PM

The Roman Catholic Church has a new pope, and The New Yorker´s Jane Kramer brings her readers the astonishing news that "you will not see women in the priesthood anytime soon; or married clergy; or an end to the bans on divorce, abortion, and contraception; or a reprieve for the nuns in trousers who go forth to give food, music, and solace to the poor; or even an acknowledgement that ´unrepentant´ gay and lesbian Catholic men and women might, conceivably, get to heaven."

The Blessed Mother Mary is the most revered woman in the Catholic Church. Pope Francis placed flowers at her statue and prayed to her for help for 30 minutes this morning.

What´s wrong with these people? Leave the Catholic Church alone. It has lasted 2000 years without the input of idiots.

Those exceptions are the NYT standards of moral ideology, not God´s. No church can change the standards set forth by God--not even the church of the NYT.

As a non-Catholic Christian, I am amazed at the press who, as Rush says are amazed the Pope is Catholic. Pope Francis seems a truly remarkable person. His election seems from God. The drive-by´s heads must be exploding.

"Unrepentant gays might go to heaven?" As noted, everyone has to repent. Sheesh.

And the Church doesn´t have anything against being gay. None of us are supposed to have sex outside of marriage--straight or gay.

Oooh-- I was struck by this New Yorker article, too. The whole paragraph struck me as top-to-bottom looney, but the part that baffled me was the "reprieve for the nuns in trousers who go forth to give food, music, and solace to the poor." Whatever does that mean? What kind of reprieve do the nuns in trousers need? A vacation to Disneyland so they can relax after serving the poor? New trousers? Traditional habits instead of trousers? Updated music?

What a surprise and a disappointment to learn that the church differs so greatly from the Bible.

Note to above, Pope Francis prayed kneeling for 10 minutes. He was in the chapel for much longer.

Liberals feel compelled to attack Christianity because they are so far from it. If the Bible is truely God´s Word, as Christians believe, they are on a very dark path. They are forced to reject that premise. Radical Islam, however, they can relate to. They both have the same view of Christians and ultimately America.

On-target ´must reads´ lede for this, Lcom.

That´s part of why there´s such a huge push to legalize ´gay marriage´. But one of the defining characteristics of the secular Left these days is the delusional hubris that human opinion defines reality. So if we can just get the law to say gays have the right to marry members of the same sex, then (voila!) gay commitments are marriage!

Relativism is just plain insane.

One can begin to see now the real goal of leagalization of gay marriage.

If gay marriage is legalized and deemed a "right", then the next step is to force churches to marry gays.

Then the church is forced to accept that sex between legally married gays is no longer a sin.

Gay marriage has deep down never really been about the money.

With leftists, the issue is never the issue.

My favorite tidbit from this article is the story about Chavez, in heaven, speaking to God and telling God what to do.

The Catholic Church has precepts and rubrics by which to abide. If you don´t want to follow, find a church more to your liking. Denigrating those who daily try to carry Christ´s cross and serve others through the Church only diminishes the denigrator.

FYI, the Catholic Church does have married clergy -- Deacons. I know, because I´m married to one. In addition, we have many Episcopal married priests who are now Catholic priests.

With millions upon millions of Catholics world-wide to nurture and guide, the leaders of the Catholic Church rightly will pay little heed to the narrow-minded and self-serving laments of silly feminists and other befuddled commentators. Instead of rejoicing in the choice of a good and humble man for Pope (and in the implications of that choice worldwide), Ms. Kramer, especially, crosses her arms across her chest and stomps her foot at the injustice of it all.

Excellent, insightful article by Mr. Taranto - his remarkable restraint (despite a little sarcasm here and there) in describing those who are so astonishingly hallucinatory (think Charlie Rangel and Nicolas Maduro), is to be admired and commended.

From must reads-Miss Lucianne´s comment:

"Reader´s Simple Catholic Fact: The Church doesn´t have anything
against being gay. None of us are supposed
to have sex outside of marriage--straight or gay. "

Exactly the Mormon stance and reason for Prop 8 activism by members in California.

Mormon church however will not oppose gay union.(Which IMO we all should promote so that marriage isn´t taken down and diminished by being tossed into the equality pot to simmer and stew and produce what new unknown?)

Catholic Church is larger and has a world presence and voice. Somehow, I doubt the gays will park in the Vatican grounds or that it produce the conciliatory stance that Utah is taking. Easier to pick on the little guys, the one minority that is not protected by hate crime laws or pop culture feel goodism.

In any case, Hooray for the New and maybe final Pope? The 112th?

Gays are camped out and campaigning for "equality As Lucianne says they are equal, no sex outside of marriage.

#33,

#1 - every gay man has exactly the same right as a straight man: to find a woman he loves, who is eligible and willing, marry her and start a family.

#2 - every gay woman has exactly the same right as a straight women: to find a man she lives, who is eligible and willing, and marry him and start a family.

If the gentleman from #1 finds the lady from #2 and they marry each other, voila, a gay couple that got married.

Happens all the time. Think Andra Dworkin and John Stoltenberg.

Why? Because marriage is the beginning of a family, kids need a father and a mother, and a family is supposed to prioritize children´s needs, not adults´ desires.

It is a travesty to re-define marriage around adults as if it had nothing to do with building a family. Everywhere in the world, and at all times, marriage has been the foundation of the family.

The families built by gay couples, by definition, intentionally deprive a child of either a father or a father.

Mr Varilli, in the context of the radical redefinition of marriage and on behalf of the Obama Administration, has just told the U.S. Supreme Court that a child has no right to have a mother, no need to have a mother, and no interest in having a mother.

Seems to me that Pope Francis is right: this is child abuse.

If unrepentant gays can go to heaven then any unrepentant sinner can go to heaven, then there would have been no need to send a savior, no need for Jesus to die on the cross no need to preach repentance because everybody is going to heaven automatically. We preachers might as well shut up and sit down because we are wasting our time preaching forgiveness.

#33, Most of us do have gay family members and friends that we love and care for. That said, there is no reason to redefine marriage. Marriage was devised (and is a sacrament in the Roman Catholic Church) to protect the well-being of children and their mother and to form a family.

Since two men or two women cannot create a child, marriage is impossible, and unnecessary.

Perhaps the most sensible and admirable Catch-22 I´ve ever run into...
Per the Catholic Church:
- Sex outside of marriage is a sin
- Homosexual marriage is banned

You do the math.

And...
- I have nothing but great sympathy for those with the affliction.
- They are a smaller minority than their loud, shrill voices and considerable political power would indicate today.
- They are way overrepresented in the news media today, even at the most prestigious(?) outlets.
- I do not believe it is genetic, nor is it nurture alone. From what I´ve read it has to do with the chemical hormone(?) mix in the womb during gestation.

#5 couldn´t be more wrong. The Church teaches that homosexual sex is intrinsically immoral. She, the Church, has taught so since her inception. The "Didache" says it as clearly as it could be said. The Church has always taught that sex is a great gift from God which has a dual purpose, and when the procreative side of it is frustrated the people involved are sinning. (Thus the Church teaches that contraception is wrong.) But homosexual sex acts cannot by their nature ever be procreative. As such they are unnatural (not according to our created nature). In short, they are a perversion of a great and good gift from God.

Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., turned down the opportunity to bash the mainstream media on Friday, when interviewed by Fox News host Megyn Kelly. Kelly pointed out, during a part of the interview aired on Friday, that there was an unprecedented volume of negative media coverage surrounding the bridge controversy in New Jersey. "Has this changed your view of the mainstream media?" she asked. "No, I´ve always had the same view," Christie said, pointing out that anyone can be the "flavor of the month" in the media. "But I´ve always said to my folks in the party, we don´t get anywhere complaining about it either,"

Suddenly ObamaCare is a roaring success, happy days are here again and liberals are euphoric, or claim to be. There are more than a few reasons to doubt this new fairy tale, not least the behavior of Senate Democrats running for re-election this year. In the Rose Garden Tuesday, President Obama reported that 7.1 million people had signed up so far, confirming a Monday night White House news leak. "That doesn´t mean all our health-care problems have been solved forever," he conceded with customary modesty. The government appears to have tapped heretofore-unknown reserves of bureaucratic efficiency by releasing numbers timed to

Health Care: The administration is crowing that 7 million people filled out applications for ObamaCare plans — the original enrollment target that once seemed impossible to hit. Don´t pop the champagne bottles just yet. Given the news about surging enrollment and rising poll numbers, maybe Nancy Pelosi was right that Democrats will all benefit in the fall from ObamaCare. Except that once you strip out the hyperbole, little remains to celebrate. • Seven million enrollees? That figure fails to discount those who haven´t paid their premiums. Among the eight states releasing this number, about one in five "enrollees," on average, haven´t paid.

Regulation: The White House has released a Climate Action Plan that includes the targeting of methane emissions from cows and other barnyard animals that threaten the planet through belching and other, er, activities. It´s our lust for cheeseburgers that´s dooming the planet through climate change, the Obama administration said in a Climate Action Plan released Friday that seeks to save us all from ruminant livestock. Having already blamed the Industrial Revolution for what we used to call weather and temperatures that have flat-lined for 15 years, the White House is now targeting American agriculture abundance by slashing methane emissions from cows by

Imagine going to work one day only to be, in effect, fired -- not because of anything you did or didn’t do at your job, but because of something you did in your personal life. Something religious. Or maybe, something political.(snip)That’s exactly what happened to Brendan Eich, a highly-respected tech guru in Silicon Valley and co-founder of Mozilla Corporation, after he was appointed CEO in late March. In less than a week, he was forced out of this position for no reason other than that he had a made a $1000 contribution to the Prop 8 initiative in 2008. His

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement. Last week, Eich attempted to dispel fears on whether he would support equality as the head

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

At a press conference to push legislation to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) criticized industrialists David and Charles Koch, calling them “shadow billionaires” who use their wealth to “rig our political system.” Reid’s sharp comments come on a day when the Wall Street Journal published a commentary written by Charles Koch, in which he described the brothers’ decision to get involved in politics to preserve the individual freedom and free markets that he said are the pillars of the American republic. “These two men are a pair of shadow billionaires spending
