Once there was a boy so meek and modest, he was awarded a Most Humble badge. The next day, it was taken away because he wore it. Here endeth the lesson.
How do you practice humility from the most exalted throne on earth? Rarely has a new player on the world stage captured so much attention so quicklyyoung and old, faithful and cynicalas has Pope Francis. In his nine months in office, he has placed himself at the very center of the central conversations of our time: about wealth and poverty, fairness and justice, transparency, modernity, globalization, the role of women, the nature of marriage, the temptations of power.

Frankly I thought they were going to go with Ed Snowden.
Few have had a bigger impact on the news cycle.
I’m lovin’ it ping!!
He made the list.
My choice would have been Ted Cruz.
But the Pope is a newsmaker, that’s for sure.
Why am I not surprised? A Pope who downplays morality and repentance, who makes silly statements like ‘Just say no to war!’ and who attacks free markets and argues for one world government to impose economic equality...yep, he sounds like someone Time would approve of!
You know not what you speak of.
Ted Cruz is my choice for Prez. I sure hope he makes it to the general election.
Now you've done it. How dare you? Do you really think Time Magazine would actually pick someone because they mirror and promote leftist views? And for those who might not know...../s
That’s just because they still think Pope Francis is pro-abortion and pro-gay marriage.
“Ted Cruz is my choice for Prez. I sure hope he makes it to the general election.”
Ted Cruz was born in Canada. Therefore, he is not a natural born U.S. citizen. Therefore, he is not eligible for the Presidency. We need to find someone else. Cruz will make an excellent cabinet appointment though.
Yes. A liberal “friend” of mine was going on recently about how wonderfully tolerant the Pope is etc. I had to leave the room.
“who makes silly statements like Just say no to war”.
You mean like every other Pope who has ever lived?
And when has Francis ever “downplayed morality and repentance”? Inquiring minds want to know.
“Ted Cruz was born in Canada”
“Obama was born in ________” well not in the United States.
Oh no, not a Pope who says no to war, I bet it makes you long for the day when Popes not only supported war, but waged it.
Next thing you know he will denounce capital punishment
Time for Hitler to find out he did not get Person of the Year!!!
There have been threads too numerous to count on the subject of natural born citizenship, and whether Obama is one, etc.
Cruz had an American citizen mother, so he was born an American citizen.
As with any other issue, if Cruz runs, someone would have to file a lawsuit to try to block him. Many seem to think that if a court ever ruled, it would be to rule that Cruz is eligible to run for President.
I understand what you are saying, but, there doesn’t seem to be any clear legal consensus on what natural born citizen really means. During the primary season last time, some even questioned Rick Santorum’s eligibility, because his father was not an American citizen at the time of Rick’s birth.
It’s clear that an Arnold Schwarzenegger is not a natural born citizen, but not at all clear in the case of a Ted Cruz.
I was hoping they would. If they cared about newsworthiness, they would’ve. But they care far more about celebrating and popularizing the biggest boon to leftism on the world stage to appear since Obama, the new, extremely liberal Pope.
I tried to stay optimistic about the pope, but I came to the point when I had to admit he's a complete disaster -- especially after Benedict, who was such a good pope.
At this point all I can do is try to glean amusement from the contortions some put themselves through in order to justify his ramblings and correct all these "misinterpretations." That, and start looking up PiusX chapels in my area.
