  •  It's a breath of fresh air for many of us ex-Cs (3+ / 0-)

    We left the Church precisely for some of the reasons that Francis has outlined - we felt that the emphasis on denouncing homosexuality (while covering up pedophilia within the system) and abortion (while ignoring the plight of women and mothers suffering around the world), and ignoring the poor while courting the favor of the wealthy, was exactly the opposite of what Jesus taught.

    I don't think I'll ever go back to the Church, but it's almost a relief to know that not everyone within the hierarchy was a giant hypocrite scumbag.
