The Pope seems to have selective amnesia when it comes to the Church and its horrendous history of human rights disasters against people of color. This happens at a time when Catholicism is becoming an increasingly southern religion and an increasingly...

A very interesting commentary! I'm not a Catholic, but I do expect the head of the Church to have a more enlightened consciousness.

Thanks, barb p!

I am a Catholic and I found this very interesting...This pope is very very arrogant...I couldn't stand him before he was pope and don't like him anymore since he became the pope...he is just an arrogant little man

Does anybody remember the visions these 2 girls in Fatima (?) had? They even met with Pope John Paul. Im not Catholic either but JP was a good Pope. Anyway, he's the only one they told this last vision to, it was supposed to be about the end of the world. It is said that they told him that there would be 2 more Popes after him before this happens, the first would only be there for a couple of years, and the 2nd would be a really bad one. I'm not saying it's true. Just wondering if anyone has heard about it. I saw it on a PBS program years ago. With the Anti-Christ in the White House, a killer asteriod making it's first pass within the orbit of the moon next year, and those who say one of the Mayan calanders predict the end of the world on Dec 21 2012, (The keepers of the calanders say it's the end of the statis quo, not the world) It does make you wonder what's really going on.

According to ancient Hindu cosmology, we are currently in the apocalyptic Kali Yuga, the age of darkness.

Whatever the case, these times do look pretty dark, indeed...

"In Latin America, liberation theology remains influential. This school of theology, which focuses on social justice and political activism for the poor, challenges people in high places, and views Jesus as liberator of the oppressed, is rejected by the Vatican. In fact, Pope Benedict has devoted his career to eradicating liberation theology and its supporters, which he rejects as Marxist-inspired, and "a threat to the faith of the church."

I'm sorry to have to tell you John Jones, that the 'liberation theologians' were shunned by the late Pope John Paul, during his trip to S. America, and the Vatican recalled the 'ring-leader' to Rome, and put him under virtual house-arrest, forbidding his return to his parish.

I just miss Pope John Paul, Ive had a strange feeling about Pope Benedict. Light just doesn't feel all around him like it felt with John Paul.

Noted! I was raised Catholic. My family are devout Catholics. I am not! If you are not Catholic you cannot receive communion in the Catholic church. I wouldn't want to answer for turning people away from the Lord's table. Now that is arrogance!
