So Maybe I Must Re-Think My Catholicism

I've had a funny feeling deep in my gut ever since John Paul II died and this new pope was installed. See, right now I can't even recall his name. Being half Jewish by birth probably has something to do with it. The new pope's German heritage and the fact that he served with Hitler's Youth in his younger days probably has more to do with it. But I just read this article on what is going on in Cameroon to ready the country for his visit and now I know I must do some deep, deep soul searching. It's just the final straw, so to speak. I'll be watching and reading about how his holiness reacts to such deplorable treatment. Maybe I should do a complete post on why I disagree with our new pope? Much research must be done first.

  1. That's awful. I don't want to offend so won't share my thoughts on religion but I think sometimes it is a matter of separating faith and belief from the ways that organised religions operate and fund themselves. Anyway, thanks for highlighting the story. People need to know.
