Pope Francis Demands a Scripture Rewrite

Let's hope not.

From Christopher Manion:

In Nairobi, the pope calls for “eliminating carbon use” on a continent where tens of millions of  poor families burn wood to heat their homes and cook their food.
(He somehow failed to note that Jesus cooked fish for his apostles over burning coals).
Meanwhile, U.S. bishops join their colleagues to demand a binding global agreement on global warming, while  the pope’s feckless Peronist sidekick insists that opponents of such an agreement are evil Tea Party members who make their living selling oil.
Not to be outdone, New York’s Cardinal Dolan, faced with the most antiCatholic administration in living memory, pleads with Obama: “Mr. President, we want to be with you, we want to be strong” – in fact, he insists, America’s bishops long to be Obama’s “cheerleaders!”
Is it any wonder that thirty million Catholics have left the church?
And why would the successors of the apostles want to be “Cheerleaders for Caesar”?

Read the rest here.

I would only add to this by suggesting that one of the reasons 30 million Catholics have left the Church is because of the banalities of the New Mass.

Who wants to get up on a Sunday morning, go to Church and then listen to bad music, inane translations of the original Latin language, dicey theology and then to top it off, like rancid butter poured over stale toast, having a throng of people rush at you and intimidating you into shaking their wet hands?

Here goes Pope Yakity-yak again.
He does like to hear himself talk. Unfortunately, he does not listen....even to himself.
I have lived through 6 Popes. I will live through this one too.

In my opinion these observations do not touch the real core of the problem which was brought with modernity. Modernity came in reality whether we welcomed it or not.
