Help! The SJW Pope Is A Total Cuck! – SOME MORE NEWS

January 23, 2020


(dramatic music)
(logo whooshing) – News? Where we’re going, we don’t need news. Hold on, I’m being told that
we do in fact need news, so here’s some news. The pope is a progressive
SJW libtard snowflake. Did you hear, total cuck
job, that Pope Francis. The papal conclave is
billowing rainbow smoke as all regalia and insignia
have now been changed to ANTIFA logos and Resistance hashtags. Shocking stuff, really. This is all according
to lists on the Internet that are often praising
our progressive pope as well as hilarious people on the Twitter who are the opposite of praising, and then like he slapped
that woman’s hand, and we were all like
yes pope, and you know, we’ll definitely get to the validity of Pope Francis’ wokeness, but first, allow me to explain why the
hell this is even a thing and why you should care with
a news segment we’re calling (sultry music)
Mmmm….. Sexy Pope News. Maybe loosen that collar
’cause it’s gonna get pretty hot in here. So the pope before this
current pope, Pope Benedict, was a super-popey pope, a
conservative even in his youth. Benedict was seen as an
aloof Vatican insider and pretty much business as
usual for an organization that’s business was making huge headlines for a massive child sex abuse scandal. Remember when The Hulk
and Vulture teamed up with Dr. Strange’s girlfriend because they worked for Sabertooth? That’s what we’re talking about here. Also, the guy who made Captain America all big and strong was
there, too, so basically, we have this church that
people were very much not into, wafting secrecy and bureaucracy
and being led by a guy who spent his life doing
Vatican stuff and who held very outdated and traditional
views which I guess is kind of what religion is all about, but then, the dude’s pope
butler went ahead and leaked a bunch of his
correspondence to the media, and as a result, exposed
even more evidence of deep corruption and infighting. Then that pope, who had
only just got all poped out, resigned, which for all
you non-pope-fanatics, or pope-pourris as they like to be called. A pope resigning wasn’t
a thing that had happened for like 600 years,
and many people suspect that it had a lot to do with all the stuff I just told you about. Cue the cool pope, Pope Francis. He’s not like other popes. He was a bouncer, the
first South American pope. MTV made him a special pope playlist, and his drapes were
like all finds of fleek. Fleeking so hard, and all over the place. Fleeking on the walls
and floor and the chairs and man, just real, real
disgusting fleeking. “Time” magazine made him
the 2013 Person of the Year, calling him the people’s pope. For a brief moment in the tens, new pope was a (beep)-damn
smoke show, like stupid popular, so much that he even boosted
tourism to the Vatican. Then in mid-2018, something happened. Specifically, this happened. It turns out that while
our new, cool pope was like down with the youth and junk, very little had been
done behind the scenes to curb the decades-long issue with other religious authorities who were also really down with the
youth, but not in the cool way, but like the bad, the very,
very bad way, really bad. It’s like we briefly forgot
that just because the Vatican elected a friendly face,
that wasn’t nearly enough to fix some extremely deep-rooted problems within the Church, and so once again, the pope’s approval went
plummeting back down to reality, and to cool pope’s credit, he seemed to have gotten the message. Cut to now, and despite a
still-dwindling popularity, not just for the pope, but the
Catholic Church as a whole, P-Fran is continuing to make
waves within the Vatican for actually trying to
restructure the Church. He appointed two handfuls
of new cardinals, many of which from more diverse areas than previous cardinals and
have far more progressive views on things like LGBTQ
issues as well as people who actually understand and
have empathy toward immigration. In fact, he’s created a
whole new office devoted to helping refugees and
really pushed toward the need for compassion toward migrants. He’s also helping to push for
the first black American saint which is pretty swell. He also named the first African-American as archbishop of Washington, which is considered the
highest post in the U.S. That archbishop, Wilton Gregory, has spoken out specifically against Trump and also publicly
encouraged the acceptance of transgender Catholics, and that’s not nearly the
first pro-LGBTQ priest the pope has signal-boosted. Cool pope isn’t cool with
people who are uncool to LGBTQ folks, and that’s cool of him. Cool pope has also given more
lenient views on abortion. He’s spoken out against
violence aimed at women and just made history for putting a woman in a top-level position, and
probably the most important, he’s actually talking about
climate change as a threat. These are all pretty good
things to do, and yes, I know that some of you
are probably screaming at your screen, hearing me
totally suck-off the pope, which I’m far too old for, and about what should
be considered sub-par levels of acceptance and
decency, and we’ll get to that, but in terms of the Catholic Church, it’s a pretty big deal,
especially since he’s not just piling on new changes but going back and trying to amend old
problems at their actual root. At the end of 2019, he announced the resignation
of Cardinal Angelo Sodano, the then dean of cardinals,
which is like, I dunno, if the pope was the Shredder of cardinals, then the dean is like the Bee-Bop and-or Rocksteady of cardinals. Anyway, the pope announced
Sodano’s resignation which may or may not have
something to do with the fact that it was discovered
that the dean had blocked several investigations
into a priest accused of sexually abusing scores
of victims, so yeah, good idea to get rid of that guy, but an even better idea
is what the pope did next which was to actually look at the position of the Bee-Bop of cardinals, or the pope is Krang, and
the dean is Shredder? Is God Krang, and then
heaven is Dimension X, and Jesus and the angels
are like the Neutrinos? I don’t know, I’m not a theology scholar. Anyway, the pope looked
at the dean of cardinals and actually made changes
to the position itself, even adding a term limit
to what traditionally was a lifetime appointment. Maybe we should tighten term limits for the other things, too. Maybe it’s a good idea
we should talk about for something else unrelated to this, but he’s not stopping there. Cool pope is continuing to
weed out members of the Church who covered up abuse cases and seemingly trying to shed light on the
issue and even exploring the idea that certain priests
don’t need to be celibate, and while that last thing is only related to a shortage of priests in
certain areas of the world, it might set a good
precedent down the line because while it would be
easy to think that celibacy is what’s leading to
these sex abuse scandals, that probably isn’t the
case and more likely it’s that the protected
and child-adjacent job is specifically attracting
pedophiles, but even still, celibacy can’t possibly
help the insularity that breeds these predators,
especially since priests weren’t even originally
required to be celibate and only made the switch
in the 12th century, and we’ve been talking
about changing the rule for a while now, and I don’t know. Maybe priests shouldn’t be celibate, but that’s not what this video is about. We’re talking about cool pope and all the progressive changes
he’s made in the Church, boosting liberal ideas like
maybe being nice to gay people and having women in power and being kind toward immigrants and perhaps
listening to the majority of scientists when they say
that the planet is in trouble. Super extremist stuff, you
know, and so naturally, a lot of religious conservatives aren’t too happy about that, including many higher-ups in the Church, and we might as well make
some kind of graphic for this (dramatic music)
called Church Fight 2020! Aw heck, it’s full-blown
church war up in here! In one corner, we got the cool pope, Mr. I pray there are no schisms
but don’t give a single drop of (beep) if there is putting
on his deal with it shades and hoverboarding away
with his big pope balls, knocking over mailboxes. In the other corner,
Cardinal Raymond Burke, a man who has been described
as the enemy of the pope putting on his (beep) the pope
shades, whatever those are. Dracula glasses, I guess. Now Burke, aptly named
after the worst character in the “Alien” franchise,
is see as a traditionalist and conservative within the Church. What that means is that
he not only believes that women should be
nowhere near the priesthood, but that men have become marginalized by radical feminism of the 1960s. He’s still mad about
the 60s and even blames the sex abuse scandals in
the Church on it somehow. When Louise Lears, a nun
that was extremely beloved in her community and helped
create The Center for Survivors of Torture and
War Trauma in St. Louis, attended the ordination
of two women priests from the Roman Catholic
Womanpriests movement, Burke (beep)-ing kicked
her out of the Church for attending the
ceremony like some kind of Harry Potter villain. Back in the early 2000s,
Burke publicly said he would refuse to give
Communion to any politician that was pro-choice. In 2014, he gave an
interview where he said that families should absolutely exclude LGBT relatives from Christmas, you know, like how the Bible
teaches that hate is good, and we should push our
family away and function off of disgust and spite and all of that. Naturally, he doesn’t much
like immigrants either, which is a biggie we’ll get to. This guy is so (beep)-ing
archaic that he even thinks people who remarry are going to hell. That’s what we’re dealing with here. Dude’s crustier than mummy jizz. Like Cardinal Burke is
such a piece of (beep) that not only was he
pals with Steve Bannon, but then openly dumped
him when Bannon implied that there was a gay
culture within the Church. Steve Bannon wasn’t
right-leaning enough for Burke, and so just a year into his popeness, cool pope went and demoted Cardinal Burke, who believes he was ousted
to quote weaken the Church’s teaching and practice, and
Burke wasn’t the only person snubbed by cool pope who
then boosted the careers of more pro-LGBTQ and
pro-immigration Church officials, and wouldn’t you know it, a lot of those snubbed
individuals were American and were very supportive of leaders that happened to be pretty fashey. Cardinal Burke, for
example, became totes BFFs with former Italian Prime Minister and nationalist Matteo
Salvini, who did a whole lot of (beep)-y things when
it came to immigrants. Oh, and here’s a big shocker. He’s also a supporter of
Donald Trump because why not. Another supporter of Salvini
and unsupporter of cool pope is Cardinal Gerhardt
Ludwig Muller who was fired back in 2017 after he
criticized the pope’s firing of three priests from the Congregation for the
Doctrine of the Faith, the section of the Church that presides over the sex abuse allegations, presumably because they were
doing a bad job at that, but in fairness, keeping
track of all the Church’s sex abuse allegations is a
depressingly difficult job. Anywho, Muller, who made
his support of Salvini, a politician who invoked
Mussolini on several occasions, extremely transparent when
he just flat-out said, and it’s a quote, “There
are countries that want to “de-Christianize Italy
and Europe while Salvini “has gone back to the patron
saints of the European Union, “to its Christian roots.” So in other words, folks like
Cardinal Burke and Muller are attracted to Trump and
Salvini because they believe their anti-immigration stance
will preserve their Christian, you know, white nations, wonderful. This is despite the fact that
neither Salvini nor Trump are particularly religious, and in fact, seem to have a hilariously thin grasp on the teachings of the Bible
and fail whenever they attempt to pander to people of faith. Do we have an amazing clip? – You mentioned the Bible. You’ve been talking about
how it’s your favorite book, and you said I think last night in Iowa, some people are surprised
that you say that. I’m wondering what one or
two of your most favorite Bible verses are and why. – I wouldn’t want to get
into it because to me, that’s very personal. You know, when I talk about
the Bible, it’s very personal, so I don’t want to get into verses, I don’t want to get into.
– There’s no verse that’s– – No, I–
– There’s no verse that means a lot to you that
you think about or cite? – The Bible means a lot to me, but I don’t wanna get into specifics. – Mmm, there it is. At this point, you might
have noticed exactly the kind of rift we’re looking at here. On one side, we have people
who have looked at the Bible and thought well maybe,
we should follow the stuff about kindness and love
and junk as opposed to the thousands of years of
human-constructed dogma within a clearly-corrupted Church, and on the other side, we have
a bunch of old, white guys in positions of power
claiming to want to protect the institution itself, you know, the one that put them in power, and in order to do that,
they’ve decided to support cartoonishly-corrupt politicians
that have spent a lifetime doing literally the opposite
of what the Bible teaches. The level of denial it would
take to ignore all the things we could list about Trump
is so great that we don’t even really have to list ’em, do we? Like, do we? This isn’t new, it’s not
nearly the first time the religious far-right
has ignored all the religious shortcomings of a candidate in order to get what they want. They famously supported Ronald Reagan, a twice-married Hollywood
elite, who never went to church over Jimmy Carter, a man who continues to teach Sunday school despite being, I’m pretty sure, dead. It’s like to get the things they want, the religious right sold
their essence and allegiance to powerful figures
representing the opposite of their religion to get
something they wanted, which luckily totally isn’t a thing there’s a religious allegory for, and therefore, could
be good or bad, right? This dynamic has always been around, but tends to be really noticeable when someone like Trump shows up, like putting dye in a
swimming pool to find a leak. Trump is so obviously corrupt
that his support at least gives us a clear view of
who the opportunists are, and we’re not just seeing this ideological rift in the
Vatican, but America, too. Sometimes as a literal rift
such as the recent news that the United Methodist
Church is planning to split in half over LGBTQ rights, one side performing gay marriage, and the other side continuing to ban it. It’s like A-B testing
for faith as they learn which Church attracts more people, and that’s of course the
cynical view which is that the various Churches,
facing a decline of followers, are making the business decision to stay relevant with the times. On the other hand,
perhaps they just realized that they’re in no position
to talk down about sexuality ever since the word priest became synonymous with molestation. I don’t know, whatever the
case, it’s not bad, right? It’s not bad for Christianity
today to actually say hey, maybe Trump isn’t good, you think, and if you’re religious and watching this and not sure what to do,
maybe you could check in with your own church or place of worship and see where they stand
on people like Trump and human rights and climate change, and maybe there’s some
way to judge the morality of what they say like with a book or something, and you can read that book and
really do some soul-searching and ask yourself what the
purpose of a church should be and if your church is
serving that purpose. And you know, if you’re a religious person that doesn’t go to church, that’s cool, but maybe we should
start supporting churches that are doing the right
thing with these issues because here’s the bummer. Despite all the changes being made, the Vatican and Catholic Church
aren’t gaining influence, and instead, conservative
evangelists are gaining sway, not just in America, but in
other places in the world, and with them comes support for
Trump and other nationalists and anti-LGBTQ movements
and all that terrible stuff, and here’s the real bummer. The bummer bun of the butt sandwich and the secret point to this entire video. Heck, let’s do a graphic card for it. (dramatic music)
The Butt Sandwich! The B-sans is this. Everything I said about
the Vatican and cool pope being drowned out by their
by the religious right while trying its best
to become progressive, the reason why that’s happening,
why folks like you and me don’t really care and why
the left isn’t suddenly backing the Church is
because when you dig into it, the pope isn’t actually
progressive at all, nor are his efforts that great. Cool pope isn’t actually
liberal or radical, he’s centrist at best. He’s still pro-life and anti-gay marriage, and when he talked about how violence against women was bad, he specifically used
that to decry pornography and sexual liberation as well. He’s not actually a cool pope, and to most progressives or
even centrists would come off as extremely conservative on many issues. The Church didn’t swing to the left. It’s just becoming less far-right, and the anger from
conservatives and praise from progressives for
that marginal change shows just how messed up we
really are on what should actually be considered the center, most likely thanks to, I don’t know, like fascism or something
maybe, I don’t know. He isn’t even doing nearly
enough about the sex abuse stuff and has failed to condemn
some of the accused. Those far-right cardinals I talked about like that Burke guy? Well it’s true, he demoted a lot of them. It’s not like they aren’t
still hanging around in positions of power. So that’s why they still
aren’t making waves because had they actually swung far left, that would be something
of note, but in reality, are just dangling closer to the
center like all-too-familiar milquetoast we’ve come to expect from Democratic figureheads now. Joe, why are you here, Joe? What are you doing? So no, cool pope isn’t nearly cool enough to make a difference. He’s progressive enough to be pushed away by conservatives,
but not progressive enough to influence or attract the
left, and so ultimately, these things don’t
really matter that much, and maybe didn’t need a whole
video about him, I’m sorry. That isn’t to say we
shouldn’t praise the Church and maybe even keep pushing
them to the actual center, and maybe one day, we
could even have a pope that actively fights back
against fascist ideas and for LGBTQ rights and
meaningfully combating climate change and therefore
actually matters in the world. We should praise the marginal changes, not just in this religion, but
any of them that take steps towards accepting LGBTQ
people and immigrants and speaks out about climate change because it’s technically
better than nothing, but when doing so, always remember that they are not necessarily
on our side, either. Much like when, in 2007’s TMNT film, the turtles team up with the Foot to fight the otherworldly monsters
released by Max Winters in order to end his immortality. They still part ways fully aware of the schism between them,
them being the Church, and I guess, are we, we’re the
turtles, we’re the turtles. I haven’t thought about
the turtles in all of this. Someone’s gotta be the turtles. Maybe comparing the Catholic
Church to Ninja Turtles isn’t a good analogy. No, that can’t be it, that can’t be it No, you’re right Cody, you
rude but cool news dude. Gimme a break! That’s from the turtles, right? I don’t know, can we roll the credits? I’ve been done for so long.

  1. Or, you know, he could use the massive, MASSIVE amount of money the Vatican has, in so many forms. Gold, real estate, art, etc. etc.
    For, oh I don't know, solve half of the poverty problem on the planet.
    Oh wait, he doesn't. Well, now I feel bad but he seems like a hypocrite.

  2. The Pope and the Deep State!…!…!…….!!!. The previous pope, Benedict 16th, ex member of Hitler youth, wanted to jerk the church rightwards and was prepared to shed a significant number of 'lukewarm' adherents in the process. He preferred the idea, of a much smaller, dedicated, traditional church, rather than a wishy-washy, 'everyone's welcome.' approach. One of his first moves was to try to 'deal' with, 'rampant homosexuality' in seminaries and the Curio, only to discover that almost everyone he worked with, or who served him were gay and that his 'papal writ', was meaningless, if all around you, disagree with you, so he quit. This pope has the same problem from the opposite direction , but the result is the same, a paralysis, when a, perceived-as-unstoppable' force, meets, the-almost-unmoveable force. That's what the 'deep state' is; the inertia of a million minds, who are used to things 'the old way'. If Trump fans, hadn't stolen the term, you can be sure that Bernie fans would have been screaming it, within weeks of him assuming office.

  6. Anyone notice how Trump checks every single deadly sin? Lust, Greed, Wrath, Gluttony, Pride, Envy, Sloth. They all fit perfectly.

    Also: I have written to my priest about my concerns with the church, maybe others can do that too. Make them see that we care.

    I also don't really like some of the left's and rights attempts to make it look like all Christians support Trump or that the two are somehow linked. It alienates religious left-leaning people and for people unsure about their place on the political spectrum but firm in their belief it may mean feeling like you should vote right because apparently everyone else in your faith does so they must have a point? Either way, hope we can all be better our own ways

  7. From now on, Use the X-Men for religious comparisons/analogy. It just fits so well and TNMT does NOT! Seriously, TNMT is such a heavily flawed comparison you must have written it thus on purpose.

  8. I know nothing about the Catholics but like. It is nice to know this pope is trying to do anything at all even if he's like. Still a conservative blech. And I was not aware of the Amount of Fascism

  9. It's always nice with a political video when you can anticipate the questions that the presenter is going to ask of himself. I was way ahead of "So is Krang God then?"

  10. One thing regarding the appointments and removals made to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith:

    the power/responsibilities held by this congregation of the Roman Curia are immeasurably immense and numerous, so changes made to more effectively combat sex abuse will bring up questions about the broader doctrinal positions of those being removed.

  11. Then there is what he did in latin America… Definitely not a cool pope. Lets talk about the Dali Lama, now there is a cool displaced religious leader.

  12. Conservatards* there, fixed your insult. Because, ya know, the word conservatives actually have a T in it. They can’t do anything right 😂

  13. The pope is supposed to be single . With no sex .
    That's why the sex scandal . I'm glad they got caught . Anyway why are they single ? Why are the women ( nuns ) single ? This not what the Bible teaches . God actually says " it is not good for man to be alone " . And geyness is wrong . Why is the church such Hippocratic ? You-all are screwed .

  14. The women should be married , not to Christ . He's dead . No , to a living warm man . And surving the congregants to gether .

  15. When the representative of a view that is historically meant to be extreme isn't extreme enough, we need to balance some shit out.

  16. Thanks for the information I've learned a lot from you and I truly hate how ignorant everyone around me is thanks cody, I guess, people sure are dumb, and blind, and stuff

    Love the content keep it going and fuck religious ideologies deeply embedded in racism and bigotry

  17. I guess the pope is doing some good things but I still think the Catholic Church as a whole is a pretty harmful to a lot of people a lot of the ideas from the Catholic Church are pretty harmful and organized religion is also pretty lame people should believe what they want but a lot of religions still have problems accepting people because a angle spoke to them or a book from 2000 years ago written by a god who might not exist or care says so if a religion was really about love why do they seems to hate so many

  18. Letting priests marry won't stop the pedophiles. Kiddie fiddlers gotta fiddle. I say let them marry, but do a better job at finding out who the pedophiles are and turn them in to the police.

  19. Now that's interesting. Like the US political view, the church has right of center and farther right.
    This is emerging as a global truth in my studies.
    If you exclude the authoritarian left what remains? Small pockets of lefties here and there. Mainly in Europe, South America and academia.
    Hmmm. He later makes a comparison to the Democrats. We think in similar ways.

  20. I mean, porn should be criticized for its exploitation and co-opting of women's sexuality to fuel capitalism, as a means to barter consent as it turns sex into a transaction, and as a means for pedophiles, groomers, abusers to influence if not shape young girls and vulnerable women's sexuality as being empowered by its submission to men and tolerance for pain. (this is not criticizing women in porn, or women who like porn, or women who have worked in prostitution this about how "sex work" is exploited by patriarchy and capitalism.) but no amount of women directors and producers in porn is gonna fix the existing problems of sex trafficking's connection to porn. can it be fixed? can porn and prostitution be fixed? idk, but I'd rather people argue with me about ways for fixing porn so it doesn't exploit and abuse women more often than it empowers them. communism.

  21. I wish the Pope would have a press conference with the Archbishop of Canterbury and the leaders of the Orthodox churches and officially declare that American evangelicals are not Christians and must stop using the name.

  22. Total non sequitur here. But the idea of you railing against the greeting card industry calling them 'Big Greetings' just popped into my head and had me giggling for 20 minutes.

  23. i hope the polls are right about baxter stockman having no chance of getting the nomination, because that "1000ml of mutagen for every citizen" thing sounds like such technocratic bs. i mean, it's barely enough to make a living… mutant, and it replaces your welfare mutagen!!!

  24. Thanks to everyone in the Some More News crew <3

    I really appreciate all the work you do and I hope you take care of yourselves the best you can in the midst of it all. You are bearing a huge load that I appreciate not having to carry even a tenth (tith if you will) of yet still learn all of this very important news. I had recently gone on a date with someone who was trans and a former protestant of a pretty wealthy family, and I remember them looking me dead in the eye and saying Do you understand how much of our foreign policy on the middle east is controlled by wealthy protestants who bought real estate in Jerusalem after reading Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins' "Left Behind" series . That fictional book series about a biblical apocalypses had a huge cultural reaction the effects of which are still rippling out today. There are a lot of religious people honed in on the end of days and want to be sitting at the pinnacle of holy land at the time of revelations. I feel like Trump probably wants to be there too, not because he understands but because people who make him feel good about himself have a thing so he should also have that thing. I'm not saying the current US president owns property in Arab and Israeli homelands because I'm not going to research in to this, but this isn't a news article. Jumping down this rabbit hole would require me to spend a whole lot of time doing frustrating and sometimes probably soul crushing research.

    I appreciate the Some More News crew so much for all that you do. This show is super helpful in helping me understand the 24 hour news cycle without submerging myself in it. Just getting the BBC world news major headlines of what's happening on that scale of magnitude is a lot and I wouldn't learn about things like QAnon or how Bill Maher tapped out of being waterboarded within a minute after talking so much shit. I am able to interpret so much more of what's going on in the world because of the work you do.

    So thank you, thank you, and god bless you all.
    As my old choir teacher would say You're doing the lord's work.

  25. 10:22 To be fair: Luke 14 : 26 says ""If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters–yes, even their own life–such a person cannot be my disciple."

  26. I asked my pastor of a conservative Baptist church in Florida(in his early 70s at the time, it was 2004) if it was a sin to be gay.

    His answer –

    It doesn't matter. The apple was eaten, sin entered into the world, and now we are all sinners. It's ko up to the church to decide what is or isn't a sin. Who you decide to love and how you to decide to love is between you and them and God.

    When I pointed out what the Bible had to say on it –

    The Bible isn't our cudgel to condemn others. As pastor, it is my job to teach out of the Bible, not to teach the Bible. As a Christian, that's on you.

    Then Sunday School began.

  27. Religious people are fucking stupid. Edit – They are not stupid because they are religious. They are religious because they are stupid.

  28. pope francis has said some very negative things about trans people. his ‘groovy acceptance’ is extremely limited…

  29. guys, you got everything wrong on the pope on paedophilia and homosexuality.
    He didn't change things, he faked changes.
    See this for his homophobia

    As for the dude's attitude on paedos, not only his commission was a farce (according to the victims who left it or were kicked out)
    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/01/world/europe/vatican-abuse-panel-marie-collins.html
    But he himself protected a convicted paedophile priest defrocked by ratzinger first by reinstating him but assigning him to "reserved life" as a ""punishment"" for the sex abuses, then when police prosecuted the guy hid the documents.
    The name is Mauro Inzoli, an italian priest that pulled serious money from a couple of foundations.
    In this case sources are in italian (my mother tongue), you can maybe google translate this:

  30. Religion is so f*’ed up!
    The old so called holy books of Abrahamic religions are just full of contradictions… lol

  31. A billion people. I am gay and am grateful for Francis for that reason. If gay people are conservatively 2% of all people then 20 million people are now less likely to commit suicide- multiplied 20 million mothers being less likely to reject those children. Everytime "centrist" Pope Frankie includes us in the Circle or empowers those who do likewise all of those people gain incremental Life, or Hope, or Love- I don't think we have a word in English for healing the dissonance our homophobic cultures inflict on LGBTQ people. I know that the Power of the office is something the vast majority of us have no innate conception of. Metaphorically it is like mass- heavy things become dangerous when they move too fast or deviate too far and the RC is already shuddering.(There are priests in Italy breaking into churches to destroy "demonic" (made by indigenous ppl) art. Schism is closer than Americans perceive.

  32. He's a total cuck. He yanks his limp dick and whimpers as real men bugger children in front of him and laugh at him. Totally cucked man.

  33. There are so many versions of and so much lore around it that there's virtually no subject that can't be addressed with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles analogy.
    Questionable, though: using the book as reference for morality. For the same reason. Too many cooks. It's easy to support any position using a source that disagrees with itself.

  34. Oh yeah, doesn't that Burke guy constantly post stuff on 4Chan under the name 'RedPillTruthBomz'? I mean, it really sounds like him.

  35. See Chris Hedges on why the evangelical right like Trump: because they're exactly the same as him: spray-tanned, fake-haired con men who prey on the poor and ignorant and whose views are unambiguous heresies as far as actual Christianity goes. Not that I want to defend actual Christianity, but it's still better than the wealth doctrine.

  36. While this is important information, there are equality as honorific crimes against humanity committed by the catholic church in third world countries. Laws banning condoms, sex education and proper health care (even for the already infected) brought forth by the church have caused thousands of Aids deaths around the world, especially on the Philippines. They cause poverty and prevent women's liberation by prohibiting execs to birth control. The divert money from charities to build churches and convert people in need instead of spending it on the causes they advertised. And if someone wants to do something different they are promptly excommunicated.

  37. The easiest way to determine if someone is a worthless, garbage person, is if they use words like 'cuck' and 'SJW' in a completely non-ironic/non-satirical fashion.

  38. I don't really have too much to add to this, just want to say I really enjoyed this video, and I'm looking forward to more episodes in 2020.

  39. I can’t speak to all of the United Methodist Church, but the one that I’ve interacted with is legitimately pretty progressive, and was fine with losing a fair amount of its congregants when they decided to start openly supporting gay marriage.

  40. Celibacy is not the reason for the abuse scandal(s). The issue is the Bishops (and other hierarchy, up to and including St John Paul II and Pope Benedict) transferring abusers around to cover it up. There are very specific areas where the abuse was rampant and others where it was basically non-existent.

  41. Basically, the progressives of today are most like the Jesus followers back then. Whereas the "Evangelicals" today are most like those corrupt, power hungry conservatives who crucified Jesus back then.

  42. Cody, I appreciate you yelling Butt Sandwich while I was in the restroom trying to listen to the last of this show…

  43. To be fair last year he gave the instruction to turn all pedophilia cases to secular (real) law so that's something actually significant.

  44. Jeez everything you talk about always circles back to trump. Also it’s really funny when non religious people attempt to say our morals don’t line up if we support the person they don’t like. Tbh this is why cracked is falling apart because instead of trying to also make people laugh they would rather beat they’re agenda into peoples heads.

  45. Hi Cody. Could you do something for me? When you mean "Christian," can you say "Christian" rather than "religious?" There are a lot of religions in the US that are not Christianity, and when you use "religious" to mean "Christian" you're erasing those religions and upholding the Christian supremacy that causes so many of the attitudes you decry in this video. Food for thought. Cheers o/

  46. Pope Francis considered 'The People's Pope'? I guess I smell what the Pope is cookin. Okay, maybe not. Cardinal Burke says "people who remarry are going to hell", okay does that mean Trump too?
    Of course not. lol
