Pope lifts ban on 'left-wing' bishop

Pope lifts ban on 'left-wing' bishop | Upsetment | Scoop.it
Kenneth Weene's insight:

It is about time that the Catholic Church recognizes the Christian value of Liberation Theology. The beatification of Oscar Romero  is long overdue if you want the Church to represent the striving of decent, hard-working, but often poor people throughout the world. Next, perhaps we can have some recognition of the need for birth control. I have no doubt that were Jesus alive today and concerned as he was for people and especially those in need, he would be supporting Planned Parenthood and the use of prevention.

Politics Stalls House Resolution to Honor Pope Francis

Politics Stalls House Resolution to Honor Pope Francis | Upsetment | Scoop.it
An apparently innocuous resolution intended to honor Pope Francis is having trouble making its way through the House of Representatives – reportedly mired in politics because some lawmakers view the pontiff as "too liberal."
Kenneth Weene's insight:

I wonder if Catholics who have voted for Republican candidates in the past will recognize that the GOP has now pretty much said God is wrong. I really do want to know how my friends who are Catholics feel about this one.

Pope Francis Visits 'Cemetery For Abortion Victims' in South Korea

Pope Francis Visits 'Cemetery For Abortion Victims' in South Korea | Upsetment | Scoop.it
It's a strong anti-abortion gesture
Kenneth Weene's insight:

I visited the U.S. military cemeteries in Belgium; they are much bigger, the crosses and stars much more substantial, but the existence of those fields of death do not deter us from making war. This maudlin gesture will not stop a single abortion. What stops abortion? Better sex education, better availability of contraception, clearer support of the sexual rights of women and especially their right to say no, and the best possible role-modeling from the community about how to be sexually responsible adults.

Pope calls for action on sex abuse

Pope calls for action on sex abuse | Upsetment | Scoop.it
Pope Francis calls for "decisive" action against clerical sex abuse in his first public statement on the scandal that has rocked the Catholic Church.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

We shall see how this call is translated into action. It is certainly time for the church to take responsibility for the damage done by priests who have been protected by the hierarchy and perhaps even more importantly to take responsibility for the hierarchy that has protected such behaviors.
