2013-02-12T174032Z_01_ROM120_RTRIDSP_3_POPE-RESIGNATIONfirst Pope from Latin America and the first pope to be named Francis. I’ve heard that people are happy because they think he’ll bring more people back to the church. Jeff on the other hand thinks he’s ultra conservative and comes from the Jesuits who have been known as the Vatican’s intelligence agency for years, right up there with the CIA and Mossad. That doesn’t mean they’re bad or are going to go around and spy on everyone it does probably mean that there will be very little information coming out of the Vatican that hasn’t been very carefully scrutinized. Pope Francis also will, in Jeff’s opinion, take the church back words in terms of women having a place in the church. He also recently made what could be considered an extremely harsh statement regarding Homosexuals. Pope Benedict had already sent messages that the mass should be performed in Latin again as opposed native languages. Jeff says that’s to put the mystery and fantasy back in the mass. That may work for some really old people but in most schools and universities Latin has become a forgotten language and is not even offered any more. Well time will tell what kind of Pope he’ll be but at 76 I don’t think there’s a lot of time left. Feel free to respond in the comment section at the end of this post in the mean time CIAO.
