    Squeeze a Fruit for the Pope

    ...His Papalness worries about modern-day challenges the church must overcome...may Jesus guide his actions to the most hateful self-absorbed option possible:

    Pope Francis 'worried' about homosexuality in the priesthood
    5 hours ago (BBC)





    Image copyright: REUTERS Pope Francis has said that homosexuality in the clergy is a "serious matter" that "worries" him.
    The comments were made in an interview about religious vocations, given to a Spanish missionary priest as part of an upcoming book.

    The pontiff described homosexuality as "fashionable", and urged clergy to observe their vow of celibacy.
    Italian daily Corriere della Sera ran excerpts of the interviews on its website on Saturday.

    Pope Francis said that the Church had to be "demanding" in choosing candidates for the priesthood.
    "The question of homosexuality is a very serious one," said the pontiff, adding that those responsible for training priests must make sure candidates are "humanly and emotionally mature" before they are ordained.

    "For this reason, the Church urges that persons with this rooted tendency not be accepted into ministry or consecrated life."
    This also applied to women who wanted to become nuns.


    "In our societies, it even seems homosexuality is fashionable. And this mentality, in some way, also influences the life of the Church," he went on to say.
    The head of the Catholic Church stressed there was "no room for this" in the lives of priests and nuns.

    In 2013, Pope Francis reaffirmed the Roman Catholic Church's position that homosexual acts were sinful, but homosexual orientation was not.
    Majestically enthroned amid the vulgar herd

    At least that was a step. No longer an abomination, just don't be led into tempatation to succumb to your desires.

    I think the thread should be retitled to 'Squeeze one off for the Pope'.

    What about lesbian homosexuality, we should have pics to show which acts are allowed and sinful.

    I think the term "homosexual" covers both men and women.
    But I'm all for lesbian pics...

    Those two pics make me want to enter the priesthood.

    And yes, "the priesthood" is a euphamism for the one with the huge funbags

    So, according to the pope, heterosexuals can be trusted to remain celebate, but homosexuals cannot?

    Homosexuality is to blame for sexual abuse, not Catholic church, claims German cardinal
    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/201...church-claims/

    A German cardinal on Friday provoked anger and controversy when he claimed the Catholic church was not responsible for sexual abuse by its clerics, and instead sought to pin the blame on homosexuality.

    “What has happened in the church is no different from what is happening in society as a whole,” Cardinal Walter Brandmüller said. “The real scandal is that the Catholic church hasn’t distinguished itself from the rest of society.”
    Those damn Germans...always stirring up trouble.

    He does have a point though as in if the clergy were allowed some punani then they wouldn't have to turn batty.

    ...nobody turns into anything he/she doesn't have the natural inclination to be: priestly celibacy is merely masochism disguised as piety...
