248. My wife is right here
And she thinks as much of you as I do. I hope I one day get the chance to tell you in very clear language just what I think of you and your hateful words.

Your reading comprehension seems to be on a par with your compassionate Catholocism.

The new pope is most certainly a neoconservative. You've done nothing to dissuade anyone of that notion, and you cannot. He's a vile man, and he's aided and abetted the "bad guys" his entire life, from Adolph Hitler to George W Bush. So go right ahead and defend this miserable, vile, hateful human being, with your miserable, vile, hateful obsequiousness.

Oh, and, why are you here? At this progressive website, I mean? Shouldn't you be out boiling heretics alive, or somesuch?
