"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


this is why i'm not catholic

So, according to the pope, apparently people are killing each other in the Congo and elsewhere because of abortion and same-sex marriage. You know, along with all those other reasons.

Unfortunately, TIA, I can find far too many Baptist ministers to say just as absurd things.

In the SBC Convention in Dallas of '85, the year the fundamentalists began to really take over, I got to speak with a Catholic priest whose entire job was to report on various Baptist meetings around the world--not just the SBC, but all kinds of Baptists. I asked him what he made of the mess. His reply, "For centuries, Baptists have held up the priesthood of the believer and individual conscience and criticized Catholics for our heirarchy and the pope. Well, it's easier to ignore one pope than all the wannabe popes the SBC now has." He had a point.
