The Pope has been fired
February 13, 2013
The Pope has been fired. And being blamed for the ultra-conservative bend in the Church. But this started a long time ago. I remember John XXIII. He galvanized many young Catholics and the Church making it seem that there was room in the Church to fight the modern evils, poverty, colonialism, runaway industrialism (both Communist and Capitalist). But ever since those heady days in the 60s the Church has retreated behind a curtain of silence.
My days as an idealistic Roman Catholic are over. The Church has become, for so many, brick and mortar. Its just another building on the boulevard.
