  •  Opposition to contraception is the single nuttiest (8+ / 0-)

    position of the Catholic Church. No pope has ever issued an official (ex cathedra) statement on contraception calling it incompatible with being a Catholic, the reason being that even devout Catholic women use contraceptives, and even the Church allows Catholics to employ Dr. Rube Goldberg's rhythm  or ovulation method. This from a Church whose theology teaches that intent is the sine qua non of sin. It is really incumbent on the current pope to cut this ridiculous Gordian knot of internal inconsistency and just admit that the Church has been just flat wrong on this subject for - well - ever. You might call such a brave initiative "bullshittus interruptus"

    Voting is the means by which the public is distracted from the realities of power and its exercise.
