Best Pope story yet?
Pope Francis has been sneaking out of the Vatican at night to serve the homeless.
The Pope for people who don’t like popes strikes again.
HE WAS ALSO A BOUNCER AT A NIGHTCLUB
Pope Francis has also shed the trappings of wealth that generally accompany his position (golden cape, ornate throne) in favor of white threads and a simple wooden chair. He’s also the first Pope to wash a woman’s feet, insisting that it’s what Jesus Christ would have done. Even if you’re not religious you can appreciate that this is a genuinely good man, and a wonderful leader of the Catholic Church.
I’m not Christian but I’ll never pass up an opportunity to reblog something about Pope Francis. I think he’s completely awesome. he actually does the things the pope SHOULD be doing, not wearing fucking golden sheets and sitting on a golden fucking throne. the man actually tries to live like Christ and that’s pretty amazing to me, since 99% of the Christians I’ve ever met don’t. four for you Pope Francis, you go Pope Francis.
HE WAS A BOUNCER WHAT
Yes, he certainly was.
I think my favorite thing about Pope Francis is how the Conservatives are responding to him right now.
WHAT! The liberals like him? He’s popular? He’s doing wildly different things than we’re used to? He’s saying things that shock the faithful? He’s calling out religious people on their behavior? Clearly, he’s a no-good liberal puppet who doesn’t care about doctrine or following his own religion’s teachings and must be stopped.
Sounds a bit familiar?
Problem is, Catholics (and by and large, Christians in general) have gotten awfully complacent in the lives they live. The biggest talking points right now (opposing gay marriage and abortion) are positions that require very little sacrifice from believers. I mean, certainly if you happen to be gay or have an unwanted pregnancy, then opposing gay marriage or abortion requires sacrifice, but that’s not most of the Christians focusing on those issues. And the issues that do require personal sacrifice? You hardly ever hear about those. The issues that require giving up the privilege that many, many followers possess (white privilege, male privilege, economic privilege, etc.) so often just get pushed under the rug.
Francis is making waves right now because he’s actually calling for the kind of changes and the kind of focus that DOES require personal sacrifice. And that makes people uncomfortable. But that’s also what Christ called for. That’s also what Christ did. He asked people to lead radically different lives as Christians and… quite frankly, most Christians nowadays don’t manage to do that. And it’s not that these Christians are bad people. Often, they’re very good people. But if you actually look at the sacrifices that Jesus asked his followers to make, then you know that being a good person isn’t all he was asking for. I mean, that’s a great start, but there’s more. Pope Francis is making that apparent once again, and I think it’s honestly just really freaking people out.
