    The point is that sometimes words and gestures matter, especially when the circumstances are ripe for change.

    So what did the pope actually do that actually matters? Croatia just amended its constitution today, after 22% of its population (90% Catholic) voted to bar gays from marrying. The Catholic Church (based just across the Adriatic) backed that bigoted theocracy move, just as it did Proposition 8 in California.

    I also note that this pope hasn't turned over any baby raper priests to their local police.

    Nothing has changed. The words are just superficial PR, vanity - just as the picture of the old pope defined him more than his actions.

    Faith is a hell of a drug.

      but if you are looking for an economic populist, he's your guy.

      Much like the many individuals at this site, we don't all agree on EVERYTHING but we can come together on issues we all share.
