Can You Believe The Pope Really Said This?!?

I refer to this as the good ol' days.

Dateline, July 22, 2013. (Seems like forever ago, no?)

On a trip TO Brazil for World Youth Day, the Pope said this.

"It's true I don't give interviews. I don't know why. I just can't. It's tiresome," he said. "But I enjoy your company."

Yes, he actually said that.

Of course, the return trip started the current media roller coaster we are on now.



  1. Perhaps he's come to find he enjoys the limelight.

  2. Not sure why every one is so shocked. The 'evil Rad Trads' knew this within a few hours of his election.

    "The Horror!

    Of all the unthinkable candidates, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is perhaps the worst. Not because he openly professes doctrines against the faith and morals, but because, judging from his work as Archbishop of Buenos Aires, faith and moral seem to have been irrelevant to him."

    "Famous for his inconsistency (at times, for the unintelligibility of his addresses and homilies), accustomed to the use of coarse, demagogical, and ambiguous expressions, it cannot be said that his magisterium is heterodox, but rather non-existent for how confusing it is."

    "He has not missed any occasion for holding acts in which he lent his Cathedral to Protestants, Muslims, Jews, and even to partisan groups in the name of an impossible and unnecessary interreligious dialogue. He is famous for his meetings with protestants in the Luna Park arena where, together with preacher of the Pontifical House, Raniero Cantalamessa, he was "blessed" by Protestant ministers, in a common act of worship in which he, in practice, accepted the validity of the "powers" of the TV-pastors."

    "This election is incomprehensible: he is not a polyglot, he has no Curial experience, he does not shine for his sanctity, he is loose in doctrine and liturgy, he has not fought against abortion and only very weakly against homosexual "marriage" [approved with practically no opposition from the episcopate], he has no manners to honor the Pontifical Throne. He has never fought for anything else than to remain in positions of power."

  3. Pretty much like the comment in the preamble to his Big Interview that he dislikes making "off the cuff" remarks. Uh huh. And B'rer Rabbit didn't want to be thrown in the brier patch, either.
