As obvious in the post below, I've been defending him in some areas, BUT I'M TIRED OF THIS POPE !!! I'm Catholic, and I think I'll invest in firearms and knife manufacturers stock. Many of his comments are good Christian principles, but the global warming thing and now this? Obama is not my president. I don't have one right now. I almost feel the same here on this office but recognize his spiritual leadership which Christ said cannot fail in the direst of issues. That does not mean his guidance is clearheaded on these other matters. There have been flawed popes before.
In the same address he spoke of the Nazis hauling the Jews off to camps. Does he not have the faculties to figure out that the Nazis did what they did to people they had disarmed to make their control easier. He asked rhetorically why the trains carrying the Jews weren't stopped by bombing. Well maybe because that would have killed the Jews in the trains. Duh! Perhaps the power of the job has overwhelmed this man, who is after all only a man and, we were told, in many ways a simple man. I am so disappointed with the selection of this pope and hope he retires soon as I believe he has suggested.
