Kirk and Jim...no offense but do you guys read these threads? When I said the Pope is a "totalitarian scumbag" I was quoting the post directly ahead of mine...thus my use of quotation marks. My point was that one of Prager's apparent followers used that obnoxious and hate filled term...........I was not using it. I have much respect for this Pope
Lucky......allow me to connect the dots concerning Prager's thought pattern (if it can be called that)....(1) The Pope is from Latin America (2) we all know that all Latin Americans are leftists (3) leftism is a religion (4) it's impossible for a person to have two religions (5) therefore the Pope, a leftist Latin American, can't be Catholic. Glad to help you through the maze of Prager logic
Lucky..to answer your question, of course a Jew can weigh in on the Pope's position...the question is why the hell would he want to or why he would even care what the leader of another religion would have to say.
JIm......right.........if Prager really was a happy person, this week's column would have been considerably easier/shorter. It would have been: " I saw that the leader of the Catholic Church has weighed in on climate change. Since I don't agree with his position, I'm glad I'm not a member of that church. Anyway, it's a beautiful day in So Cal and I'm going to enjoy it".
Science..good stuff. And I'll go you one better. To me it seems that one of the reasons that the term "climate change" is used more often is because of buffoons like Prager. I have personally heard HIM say, on his radio show that, because, for example, on a day in Feb, in Iowa, when it is 3 degrees out, it really would be better for those people if, in general, the world was 3-4 degrees warmer.
tbm......but..by that definition, conservatism is NOT a religion?
The Pope is a "totalitarian scumbag"....well done, Mr Prager...after a few weeks of writing about the ten commandments, you're back to your bread and butter....writing columns that whip up anger, hostility and ugliness. Congratulations.
I see that Prager repeats his thick headed contention that leftism is a religion, apparently under the belief that, no matter how absurd a statement is, if you repeat it enough, it becomes true. The truth is that leftism is no more a religion than conservatism is. But Prager sounds particularly dim witted when he ties this into a discussion regarding the POPE. Assuming that a person can only have ONE religion (which seems to be a given), Prager is now painting himself into the corner of claiming that the universally recognized leader of the Roman Catholic church is not really a Catholic. Were there any equally weak minded people on the left during the era of other, more conservative Popes? I sure don't recall anyone claiming that, for example, Pope Benedict wasn't really a catholic...his real religion was conservatism. If anyone from the left did make comments of that nature (which I strongly doubt), I would consider them to be every bit the fool that Prager is.
Anon......great point.......(1) as you say, Prager should wait for it to be published and (2) if, at that point Mr Happiness doesn't agree with it, he should just consider himself fortunate that he is not a member of that faith and not get bent out of shape about it.

"Is there such a thing as a worst sin.....IN FACT (emphasis mine) there is". This would actually seem to be about as far from a "fact" as there is. It is MUCH more accurate to classify this as a belief or even an opinion, but it certainly does not fall into the category of being a "fact".
