A great man for troubled times, may the force be with him and his work.
A very deserved honor!
To FT at 8:29:"If there is anything virtuous, lovely, of good
report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things..." as long as "these
things" are not Catholic, Buddhist, Baptist or Muslim.
@ FT: "Does anyone even care about this award?"Obviously
you cared enough about it to make a comment.
@JoeBlow – “Is this another example of the liberal media's war
on religion?”Very nice… and pithy!But this
Pope will likely make the religious right uncomfortable for years to come. Those
folks much prefer the god of the OT or Revelations – lots of judgment,
smiting, damning of sinners and wrath. This Pope seems much more a
sermon-on-the-mount sort of guy who seems determined to humbly teach Christians
how to be Christians.Good luck Frank, and may the flying spaghetti
monster be with you…
@FT, I don't particularly care, it's just been streaming on the
Internet the past few days. I am LDS, and I love to follow (read
about)this wonderful man in the media! He doesn't mince words, but the
reason things are taken in context is because he actually teaches by
living/demonstrating everything he preaches and is very in touch with serving
the way Christ served--out among the people. He is reminiscent of Mother
Teresa, except of course, he is leading the entire Catholic Church from the
Vatican (which is out of his comfort zone because of how decadent it is). My #1
choice, hands-down! This Pope is going to be someone who will be going down in
history books as one of most Christ-like Popes they've ever had! There is
much to be learned from this compassionate man and his example!
He has denounced the world's "idolatry of money" and the
"global scandal" that nearly 1 billion people today go hungry======== Good choice, based on that alone.BTW -- "JoeBlow Far East USA, SC Is this another example of the
liberal media's war on religion?"7:27 a.m. Dec. 11, 2013Perfect comment, Agreed, Thanks!
Does anyone even care about this award?
Is this another example of the liberal media's war on religion?
