    Good item on our ABC news site

    http://www.abc.net.au/religion/articles/2015/09/25/4319374.htm

    “Without departing from this long tradition of Catholic social teaching, Pope Francis has made economic injustice and concerns with environmental degradation a point of signal emphasis, calling on faithful and non-Catholics alike to connect the tenets of their faith to the decisions they make about consumption, waste and, ultimately, how those decisions translate into political choices.

    Francis’s call has unhinged conservatives who have grown accustomed to assuming that the Pope was just a Republican in a white robe. It has most deeply revealed that Catholic and social conservative support was desirable so long as those Catholics believed that the only real relevant political issue that should be considered when voting was whether a politician was pro-life.”

    Some folks were tweeting about Shepard One changed from AirItalia to American airlines — see aircraft in arrival at NYC. (Sorry I don’t know how to paste pics). Trivia: AirItalia is his transportation to other countries HOWEVER his return flight is always always the host counties airlines. Im wondering when he leaves will it be on a USAirforce custom jet which h State department uses, smaller but similiar to Airfotce TWO which dignitaries use.

    You’ll have to verify via Google but I’m 99% certain that the custom with all countries. The pope hitches a ride home via host countries.

      Okay, I know I really need that nap.
      I looked at this picture and read the names of the people walking back to the WH and I thought to myself “where’s the Chinese President?”, this group looks like the Mafia with PBO as the Don and they’re walking back from the assignment…then it dawned on me that the Chinese Prez must be residing at Blair House.

      The imagination is a powerful thing ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    we all know how vile today’s gop is.

    but I was hoping that just this once, these hate-mongers and loud-mouths would constrain themselves and not attack the Pope so viciously for proclaiming what are principle teachings (doctrine) of the religion he leads.

    a number of people may disagree with some of the conservative stands … but for heaven’s sake the Pope is a visitor in this nation and what he says is something he has alluded to in the past;

    well, I was hoping for too much ….given the extremism of this gop;

    I wonder what the conservative catholic clergy, that has been so vocal in their support for the gop, feel now – whose side are they on?

    Uckey! I won’t share a glass with anyone — not even the Pope! And, the article says he did the same thing at PBO’s first inauguration… nasty…

    I know John Boehner invited the Pope to speak to the Congress, but PBO is a master at timing. My thoughts are he helped plan the Pope’s environmental topic and aligned with the Chinese President coming to announce his help right after the GOP’s rejection for climate change legislation. I chuckle at Donald’s rant that our President is not tough enough against China. Just goes to show being respectful is more powerful than might.
