Pope Makes My List

It is no secret that I have little use for organized religion….all of them….and now I can add the Pope to my list that I keep on a roll of toilet paper…..

These so-called pastors need to worry about people’s souls and stay out of their personal lives and decisions.

What got me fired up was something the Pope had to say about people with pets.

Pope Francis isn’t happy with people who forego having children and opt for pets instead. While discussing parenthood at the Vatican, Francis called the idea of being childless “a form of selfishness,” per AFP. “We see that some people do not want to have a child,” said the pontiff. “Sometimes they have one and that’s it, but they have dogs and cats that take the place of children. This may make people laugh but it is a reality.” And in his view, it’s a damaging reality because it amounts to “a denial of fatherhood and motherhood and diminishes us, takes away our humanity.”

It’s not the first time Francis has spoken out on the issue, declaring in 2014 that the idea of couples having a dog or cat instead of a child is “another phenomenon of cultural degradation.” For those who cannot have biological children, Francis encouraged adoption and used the example of Joseph, presented in the Bible as the “foster-father” of Jesus, per Vatican News. “Having a child is always a risk, whether naturally or by adoption,” he said. “But it is more risky not to have them, to negate fatherhood or motherhood, be it real or spiritual.”

Seriously?

He tries to blame pets for the problems the Church is having.

Apparently he worries that fewer children would mean less money flowing into the church coffers.

I do not trust a dude in a funny hat and dress…..I trust my friend MoMo a thousand times more than some priest.

Enjoy your Sunday….Be Well and Be Safe….

  1. I have to totally agree.. the Pope seems way whacked on this one. In fact, because having kids is a natural instinct for the procreation of our species I always perceived that instinct played entirely on our personal selfishness.. we have kids because we NEED to satisfy our own desire to do so… and once we have them we are happy. Seems a selfish impulse to me… but selfish impulses are not always “bad” in humans. The Pope has it reversed.
    But here’s to my greater point… is there not far more threats to humanity he can try to address than the idiocy of pets vs. kids?

  2. There are millions of children starving around the world, and that costumed clown wants people to have even more. That’s not just a religious viewpoint, it is criminally irresponsible. Especially from a priest who is forbidden to have children and chose that path from personal choice.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Like most pastors he thinks he has the right to dictate to the people…..all of them can BITE ME….Pete it is 1300 hrs and the temp here is 34 degrees and windy…..chuq
