New Pope Has Crazy Ideas That Church Should Not Be ‘OBSESSED’ With Gays, ‘Bortions And Slut Pills

Pope Francis, in the first extensive interview of his six-month-old papacy, said that the Roman Catholic church had grown “OBSESSED” with preaching about 1) abortion, 2) gay marriage and 3) contraception, and that he has chosen not to speak of those issues despite recriminations from some critics.

“It is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time […] The dogmatic and moral teachings of the church are not all equivalent. The church’s pastoral ministry cannot be obsessed with the transmission of a disjointed multitude of doctrines to be imposed insistently.

“We have to find a new balance,” the Pope continued, “otherwise even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards, losing the freshness and fragrance of the Gospel.” (freshness and fragance, at last!)

personal thought:

I predict some of ‘Dudes in the red socks’ are going to start asking for a ‘recount’, and soon.
