    I hate Snooki’s tweet: “He’s adorable”, what does that has to do with being the Pope? I bet she doesn’t even know what being a Pope means…

    Malena Says:

    He’s against gay marriage and was implicated with crimes against human rights when my country was under the worst dictatorship ever, I’m not enjoying this at all

    Malena Says:

    It is not, he’s an awful human being. I’m from Argentina, he was implicated in crimes against human rights and he called to make a God’s War against gays.

    @rae: I’m ashamed too. I just wish I could live anywhere else but here. goverment, corrupt workers, sh**** people. I think this is the only thing I can be proud of Argentina, besides Messi.

    jaz Says:

    @Malena: so? that’s an opinion. Want to be in favor of homosexuality? Don’t go to church, you should know that. (Aparte, de donde sacaste lo de la dictadura?? No digas boludeces si no sabes bien como es la historia. Averigua si estuvo a favor y cuales son sus opiniones y despues hablamos)

    @jaz: @jaz: saben que es lo peor? que para el exterior, argentina es el mejor pais del mundo, si me dejara llevar por las noticias que leo de argentina, estaria mejor alla que en los angeles, pero por suerte tengo familia alla, que me dicen que nada es lo que parece. messi, bergoglio, ahora francisco I y maxima, proxima reina de holanda, son las unicas razones para sentirse orgullosa de ser argentina.

    Purple Rain Says:

    From the prestigious paper, the Guardian:

    To the judicious and fair-minded outsider it has been clear for years that the upper reaches of the Argentine church contained many “lost sheep in the wilderness”, men who had communed and supported the unspeakably brutal Western-supported military dictatorship which seized power in that country in 1976 and battened on it for years. Not only did the generals slaughter thousands unjustly, often dropping them out of aeroplanes over the River Plate and selling off their orphan children to the highest bidder, they also murdered at least two bishops and many priests. Yet even the execution of other men of the cloth did nothing to shake the support of senior clerics, including representatives of the Holy See, for the criminality of their leader General Jorge Rafael Videla and his minions.

    ed Says:

    The Catholic church is a business full of corruption. I’m not against being embracing spirituality but why in modern times do we continue to put these men (yes, all men) on a pedestal? I look at the Vatican with all its excesses, scandal and hate and see poor people who continue to praise and glorify the institution, I just don’t get it. I guess people need their idols.
