From the “Well, Duh” files

Pope-Francis

The public’s love affair with Pope Francis continues. Just today he uttered the, quite possibly, the most obvious sentence I have ever heard and believers are all aflutter. Here’s the quote; “Inconsistency on the part of pastors and the faithful between what they say and what they do, between word and manner of life, is undermining the Church’s credibility. Those who listen to us and observe us must be able to see in our actions what they hear from our lips, and so give glory to God!”

The Catholic Church has been pulling the old, ‘Do as I say, not as I do’ routine for so long now that many people no longer take them seriously. He may be winning back some hearts and minds with statements like the above, but for how long? The proof, as they say, is in the pudding. My guess is that the pudding will be about as real as the invisible man they worship.

  1. At least he is honest. How can you be consistent when the guy you purport to be talking to doesn’t seem to care. He left Ratzi retire in bad health instead of making him younger. I mean he was his spokesman, you’d hope god would treat him differently!

  2. There is nothing more honest than admitting defeat. Surrender to the inevitable is the most honest thing to do. Admitting that the church does not do what it preaches is admission of guilt and therefore, defeat, in light of past performances.
