Oh Well, The Romance Couldn’t Last Forever

As popes go, Francis is a good egg. But the fact is that he is still a religious person, and therefore believes in some very stupid things.

He’s taken the side of Kim Davis. Here you go:

Speaking to reporters on his flight home, he was asked about Christian ‘martyrs’  including Davis who claim to be ‘persecuted’ for their actions.

He said: “Conscientious objection must enter into every juridical structure because it is a right.

 “I can’t have in mind all cases that can exist about conscientious objection but, yes, I can say that conscientious objection is a right that is a part of every human right.

“And if someone does not allow others to be a conscientious objector, he denies a right.”

Conscientious objectors are civilians who refuse to serve in the military during a time of war, if we want to be picky. Those already serving don’t have access to this. Neither does Kim Davis. And what about the rights of the prospective partners? As far as I know Francis is silent on that.

I like this guy, in general. But as has been rumored, he’s not much more progressive than say, a Pope John Paul. Most, if not all of our recent pontiffs, believe in the dignity of all humans and that we are getting awful greedy in a world where billions starve and the few fart through silk. The pope is right on that the world can be rendered uninhabitable if we don’t watch ourselves. Maybe I won’t go to hell very long for being an atheist. These things are nice to hear. But it doesn’t make Francis one of us. He’s still head of a dysfunctional, antedated institution and he will probably not change Catholicism’s(or Christianity’s for that matter) biggest weaknesses. As a non-believer, I am the ultimate Protestant. There’s a gulf that we will not broach.

Sorry Francis, Kim Davis blows and so does your take on the matter.

About The Head Seminarian

I might be the nicest person you'll ever meet, but if you don't believe me, that is because I hate you. I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I came to remind you of this, not make it worse. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. If you have a bad memory, you will forget this. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
