Listening to The Pope, at St. Peters.

There is no room for God in our lives.
Let us ask that we may make room for him.

6. Kind of hoping that out of a spirit of tolerance toward

those here who are celebrating the holiday, the Pope and general religion bashing on DU can be curtailed for the day.

Thanks, elleng, for posting the message.

7. Pope: gay marriage threatens the future of mankind

How's that for the Christmas spirit of tolerance?

http://www.democraticunderground.com/121859840

More Christmas tolerance from the fluffy bunnies at the Roman Catholic church:

The Bishop of Shrewsbury plans to use a Christmas sermon to attack equal marriage, with a sprinkling of World War II rhetoric added in for good measure.
...
“We think of the ideologies of the past century, Communism and Nazism, which in living memory threatened to shape and distort the whole future of humanity.

“These inhuman ideologies would each challenge in the name of progress the received Christian understanding of the sanctity of human life and the family. Winston Churchill, Britain’s wartime prime minister, a man without clear, religious belief, saw in this deadly struggle nothing less than the defence of Christian civilisation.

The Bishop will add: ”Few of our political leaders today appear to glimpse the deeper issues when the sanctity of human life and the very identity of marriage, the foundation of the family, are threatened.”

During his interview, Archbishop Nichols said of the gay marriage plans: "There was no announcement in any party manifesto, no Green Paper, no statement in the Queen's Speech. And yet here we are on the verge of primary legislation.

"From a democratic point-of-view, it's a shambles. George Orwell would be proud of that manoeuvre, I think the process is shambolic."

He claims during a "period of listening", those who responded were "7-1 against same-sex marriage".

Archbishop Nichols ignores the British polls, in favour of the responses sent in by his flying monkeys who do what he tells them to.

The ICM poll conducted just before Christmas found 62% of voters now support the proposals, with half this number – 31% – opposed.

From a democratic point-of-view, a free vote in Parliament about introducing a measure that has the positive support of 62% of the public looks very good. Especially when it's a tolerant measure, unlike Nichols, his ridiculous henchman at Shrewsbury, and his bitter boss in Rome.
