Any one else tired of the over coverage of the new Pope by the media?  Apparently there is no other serious news to spend more than a brief mention.

I’m not tired of it because I’m not even paying attention to it in the first place. Except for the damage they do on way too many levels ( Missives such as: Sex is a sin, should NEVER be enjoyed no matter how good it is, and contraception is a sin no matter how grotesquely and dangerously over populated the world is) I could care less what the Catholic Church has to say on much of anything.

I don’t know how to post a link to it, but I loved the photo going around with his holy poopiness in all of his regalia captioned thusly:

The pope, wearing a fabulous vintage chiffon-lined gold Dior gown over a silk Vera Wang empire waist tulle cocktail dress, accessorized with a 3 foot beaded peaked House of Whoville hat, and the ruby slippers Judy Garland wore in The Wizard of Oz, is on his way to tell us it’s wrong to be gay.

A reason to be interested in it could be that the Catholic church still is a power. What the pope says and does might (yes, might… I am not sure) have some influence on millions of Catholics. So even that I think the Catholic church is a silly irrational institution, I rather see a pope that cares more about people than about theology (at least compared to his predecessor).

Who cares more about people? Francis? Why? Because he picked the name of the humble Francis of Assisi? From what I have read, the new pope said some very nasty stuff against women and gays; I guess that counts as “carrying” about other people.

Most importantly, though, Francis opposed Liberation theology, so I don’t see how that makes him the saint of the poor.

Yes! I saw that picture and blurb, but it was actually a picture of Benedict.  Francis hadn’t yet been crowned or whatever it is they do to Popes after they’re divinely selected.


If I can find it I’ll send it.

Here’s the text.  The photo won’t paste.  If anyone wants it, let me know and I’ll send it by email.

Yes, I know it was ol’ Bennie, but it captured the whole ‘holey poopiness’ so very perfectly.

A reason to be interested in it could be that the Catholic church still is a power. What the pope says and does might (yes, might… I am not sure) have some influence on millions of Catholics. So even that I think the Catholic church is a silly irrational institution, I rather see a pope that cares more about people than about theology (at least compared to his predecessor).

Its not that I am not interested, but the ceromonies are being over reported to the exclusion of many other important events.  ie. New gov’t bieng formed in Isreal Kenya’s new Pres.  Sudan and S Sudan new agreement on oil.  Mexico’s reform of telecommunications and television regulations. etc.  Greenlands elections and how itm could affect the supplu of rare earths, etc.

Also I noticed, at least here locally that all the priests being interviewed are Americans either of Polish, Irish or Italian descent in spite of the many local priests foriegn born and none of those I have seen being interviewed have any Spainish speaking cultural background.

A caller on a radio talk show I listen to had a good answer to this exact question: the TV coverage is in response to Fox/Righties constantly accusing the mainstream media of being secular, liberal, godless, etc.

Good luck in finding one.  Francis is not it, I will guarantee it. He will soon make a pronouncement that proves he cares a whole lot more for theology Han any person.

Well, since it’s actually the big Sky Daddy himself who is picking the Popes, he obviously has biases. Did anyone really think otherwise?
