Can you smell the papal bull? It’s okay for us to hide our pederasts, but please respect our medieval dogma on women’s rights. The Catholic Church would be better served if the pope put a sock in it.

The Pope needs to be reminded that religious groups need to steer away from politics to maintain their tax exempt status.

With all due respect to the Vatican….stay out of the business of the USA. Our laws provide for a secular democracy, not a theocracy ! Your “backward” ideas on women’s rights are rejected by the majority of Americans.

It is time the church stays out of politics and let the women of the world make their own mind on what they do with their body and life

So,it is perfectly fine for Obama to issue thousands of waivers on Obamacare to unions and campaign-contributing big corporations,but not to the Catholic Church? Hypocrite.

@KimKL,

Sure seems that way, guess they bought their waivers with those big contributions. Didn’t Obama say something in the 08 elections about us clinging to our religon and guns?

We need to remind the Vatican of rampant child abuse on the part of priests and cover-ups by Bishops, Cardinals and the Pope.

Remember the old saying, “Don’t throw stones if you live in glass houses.” The Pope should recognize that “Bibi” backed the wrong horse. He too will pay the price.

KimKL, the situations are not at all related, so either you are purposely misrepresenting those “waivers” or you are seriously uninformed. I’m going with the former. Hypocrite.

They also have substantial difference on child protection. Freedom and justice? The pope should be ashamed to use the words.

Ignorant liberals, the catholic church has the largest women membership of any religion in history. The joke is on the idiot minions like yourself who have decided to turn your back on morality in favor of doing whatever you want. If you don’t believe in god, fine. But the 90% who do, should not be mandated by the government to compromise our beliefs. Being an idiot liberal is going out of style quick.
