I'm just going to rant a bit.
Can someone explain to me (aside from the obvious, as I see it anyway) why the Holy Father would lead us down the road of "de-emphasis of hot button social issues"? These last two weeks have left me baffled as to why, truly why a man, elected Pope, can say and evidently turn the face of the church so far away from its theological traditions. I know why, in my heart and soul I know why, but like I said, I'm just going to rant.
I'd rant more but I've got to get back to work.
