Pope Francis 'Shocked' By Gay Adoption Bill: Report

Pope Francis 'Shocked' By Gay Adoption Bill: Report

Commented Dec 30, 2013 at 07:58:27 in Religion

“I have been pleasantly surprised by this pope, but then it's such a low bar. Anyone who expected him to really be in favor of equal rights either has a short memory or no knowledge of his past.”

esully63 on Dec 30, 2013 at 10:36:41

“Equal rights? What on earth are you talking about? He is not advocating that the gay community have their rights stripped he is advocating we not judge them. As far as adoption goes it's a no brainer, since homosexuality is a sinful act it is obviously not a proper environment for children to be raised in.”

“Funny, it was FOX the started this with the claim Santa and Jesus are both white on their national show, and and since hen virtually every one of their talking heads have gone off about it.”

Vince Almaraz on Dec 20, 2013 at 20:18:22

“It is too funny. The Left constantly ridicules, demeans and makes fun of Fox, yet seem to care an awful lot about everything they say. I think you guys need FOX. They give you what you want. You want a constant flow of things to be offended and angry about.”

“Do these people not get the irony? They make derogatory statements about gays and blacks and then get all upset when people then make derogatory statements about them? Seriously? Only THEY get to express opinions?”

Jonas Planck on Dec 19, 2013 at 18:57:05

“Yep, pretty much. Double standards require doublethink. The SELF is a completely different thing than the hated OTHER, so a different set of rules apply to each.”

“Do you think they care what you think about them? Do you see him apologizing?”

Trevor Lawrence on Dec 19, 2013 at 16:12:22

“How exactly were his statements, about his experiences from his life derogatory? Did he say the no blacks were ever mistreated? He said they were happy. May be in his experiences, they were happy around him. That is a possibility, not every comment is an indictment of an entire nation.”

“Same here. I would love to remind my family who shared such links of their sins considering half of them had children before they got married and several have alcohol abuse problems. I doubt if Phil made statement telling them they were immoral they would be supporting him right now, but as usual their sins are "different".”

“Ok, the parents made a really poor choice, but the kid was in no actual danger from a little pot. Although I would be concerned about what else might be going on in a house where this happened, if that is it, the kids aren't really in danger. Until you start removing kids from homes where parents smoke or where they give kids a little alcohol to try, this is a ridiculous outcome.”

“You're either lying or, well, you're just lying. Hospitals, by law, are only required to provide emergency care. And it's not free. You do not provide the number one thing most important to the chronically ill, prescriptions for medicine that manages their illnesses before they get to critical stages.”

docsleepy on Dec 9, 2013 at 23:29:47

“Hmmm.... so you dispute my billing statemnts which demonstrate the amount of care for which I was never (and will never) be reimbursed?

Now I will grant you that the poor do not have the best of care; but I can assure you that I have performed CPR on many a patient who will never pay me, and I think that was pretty important care. Do you call me a liar again?”

“Even in the best of economic times we have 3-4% unemployment, why is it that Republicans think its ok to starve people? There has never been and there will never be enough jobs for every able bodied adult in the US, that is a simple reality.”

ChasG on Dec 8, 2013 at 16:32:31

“3-4% unemployment is unsustainably low.  "Full employment" (the level where the vast majority of unemployed find new jobs before their unemployment benefits run out) is now considered to be closer to 4.5% to 5%.  It took an economic bubble to get unemployment barely below 5% during the Bush administration.  When unemployment falls below full employment, we experience increased inflation.  Since 1970 (43 years) we've had only one calendar year when unemployment was below 4%, and 26 years of 6% or higher, and 36 of 43 years with a rate of 5% or higher.  Below 5% has simply not been sustainable. ”

"According to Walmart's website, the average wage for a full-time store worker is $12.83 per hour, which translates into a salary of about $27,000 per year."”

“The poverty line is $11,480 per year and the average Walmart wage is $25,000. Walmart is paying $13,500 more than the poverty line so you are not subsidizing Walmart workers.”

“What is with this idea that teens only work to earn a little pocket money? Is it the 60's or something? Teens need to save up for college as prices have risen so fast that there is no way the vast majority of parents can pay for it themselves. Student loans are out of control and Republicans are pushing the idea that teens should be making a few dollars an hour because they don't have a household to support. Talk about out of touch.”
