All Right Then

[Content Note: Hostility to agency; homophobia.]

The Pope says that the Roman Catholic church has become "obsessed" with abortion, same-sex marriage, and contraception. Well observed, Padre! We finally agree on something!

But lest you think he's calling for the Church to can it with the misogynist and homophobic crap, ha ha no. It is merely a matter of quantity: "It is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time." Just remind people SOMETIMES that they are going to hell if they try to control their own reproduction or do it with someone of the same sex!

Said the Pope: "We have to find a new balance, 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."

I'm not even touching that.
