Losing Patience With the New Pope

kimbrell, they should give up their beliefs and adopt mine if I can convince them that mine are more valid. Five hundred years ago a majority of people believed the earth to be flat. Would you fault me if I tried back then to convince them it was round? I believe that religion, on balance, does more harm than good. I know a majority of folks in this country disagree with me about that, but that doesn't mean I should just shut up and go away. I'm not telling anyone what to believe. I'm trying to give them a reason to reexamine their beliefs.
Many millions of Catholics around the world were joyous with the naming of a new pope -- a holy man from the Third World no less. Even in choosing his name, Pope Francis is emphasizing a devotion to the poor, and humility in his clothing and manners.

The liberal media should be lapping this up. There was an accurate recounting of the global rejoicing, especially in Argentina. There were hopeful words about his pastoral modesty. But as the day came for the pope to be installed, the natural secular liberal nastiness toward the oldest Christian faith bubbled up in demands for "tolerance"...
