    Rome: A First ! Pope Washes Women's Feet

    Cannot resist posting this one to illustrate how anti-female Catholicism has been ;
    Feet of women, horrors !!
    Will Pope Francis be less sexist?



    In a first, pope washes women’s feet - The Times of India

    ______________


    ROME: In his most [COLOR=#0000FF !important]significant break[/COLOR] with tradition yet, Pope Francis washed and kissed [COLOR=#0000FF !important]the feet[/COLOR] of two young women at a juvenile detention centre a surprising departure from church rules that restrict the Holy Thursday ritual to men.

    No pope has ever washed the feet of a woman before, and Francis' gesture sparked a debate among some conservatives and liturgical purists, who lamented he had set a "questionable example". Liberals welcomed the move as a sign of greater inclusiveness in the church.

    Speaking to [COLOR=#0000FF !important]the young offenders[/COLOR], including Muslims and Orthodox Christians, Francis said that Jesus washed the feet of his disciples on the eve of his crucifixion in a gesture of love and service. "This is a symbol, it is a sign. Washing your feet means I am at your service," Francis told the group, aged 14 to 21, at the Casal del Marmo detention facility in Rome. "Help one another. This is what Jesus teaches us," the pope said. "This is what I do. And I do it with my heart. I do this with my heart it because it is my duty. As a priest and bishop, I must be at your service" .

    In a video released by the Vatican, the 76-year-old Pope Francis was shown kneeling on the stone floor as he poured water from a silver chalice over the feet of a dozen youths: black, white, male, female, even feet with tattoos. Then, after drying each one with a cotton towel, he bent over and kissed it.

    Previous popes carried out the Holy Thursday rite in Rome's [COLOR=#0000FF !important]grand St John Lateran basilica[/COLOR], choosing 12 priests to represent the 12 apostles whose feet Christ washed during the Last Supper before his crucifixion. [COLOR=#0000FF !important]That Francis[/COLOR] would include womenwas remarkable, however , given that current liturgical rules exclude women.

    ^ Until birth control is allowed, I'm afraid I have to agree, this religion is outdated and now actually a danger to civilization - overpopulation is the one problem that can be solved, that will solve a lot of other problems.

    The sanctimonious posturing is laughable.

    On his first day they made this thing about how he got in a minibus instead of getting in the Mercedes or something.

    It is just pious pantomime.

    Here we have one of the richest and most powerful men in the world with the ability to effect fundamental change to make a better world and the papal press poodles are reporting on the relative significance of these stage-managed side-shows.

    Relative signifigance? or insignifigance?

    I think actually it is signifigant, viewing women, and addressing them as other than unclean creatures used only for breeding is important in the over- all scheme of things.

    He washed her feet so the maid wouldn't have to mop the kitchen floor again.

    Passage from the book of Beazalbob69-19. And the Lord addressed the Israelites and spoke unto them "Cover thy skins with markings as this is the way of the Lord". And so it was that Tat's came to be.

    Overpopulation?

    The European birth rate is so low it cannot recover and will lead to the eventually extinction of the Europeans. Europeans were sold a bill of goods with that overpopulation propaganda. Because of that the Muslims are going to out-breed them right into Sharia law without a single shot fired.

    Maybe he can who knows , maybe the Islamic Clerics could be dragged out of the stone age too,cos I have never heard of a modern day Catholic Country were Blasphemy is punishable by death, and were they have public beheading's and stonings of women and Catholics sell their kids to be groomed as suicide bombers for "the cause" ,were women and kids are actively encouraged to be human shields like Hamas do ,or were the horrific practice of genital mutilation on young girls is common place , or were Catholic women have to wear a black bell tent with only a gauze to see through , and no I ain't a catholic, but a devout atheist ,just stating a few facts for the head up their arse Muslim appeasement brigade to digest

    Immigrants do change a country, and agree, in EU it won't be pretty if it isn't curbed.

    But I'm speaking of the e drain on planet resources when the population doubles in less than a century mostly in Asia

    But Eu consume quite a bit, all westerners do, USA Catholics too and now the hordes of Asia are chomping to consume madly. So it's time to curtail the population, before it is too late, and the Pope should lead the reform of birth control.
    No way though as it is so dependent on re populating itself.

    Thank you for this excellent sample of brain damage. Be assured that the mongrel nation will be mexicanised long before Europe becomes Muslim.

    You're wrong. He's making politics by breaking with traditions and customs.

    Pope's foot-wash a final straw for traditionalists
