But we all knew that already. I guess this post is for progressive Christian lurkers.

Like the popes before him, he only cites separation of religion and government when it suits his agenda.



I must disagree with Hannah Cranston on a couple of points. First, I have had no hopes dashed over this pope. I treat everything good he says as a pleasant surprise, and always with a salt shaker nearby. And second, Christianity has too much baggage for me to find Baby Pope cute.

John is right. Kim Davis has the right to conscientious objection. She does not have the right to impose her conscientious objection on other people, nor, I might add, the moral right to collect her paycheck while conscientiously objecting to her job. (I am reminded of a certain webmaster who once conscientiously objected to killing Vietnamese people in Vietnam, yet did not attempt to take advantage of the GI Bill or collect veterans benefits.)
