Has Pope Francis Ingested Too Much Incense? ‘Rugby Is NOT Violent’?

This pope has made quite a few ‘interesting’, actually incongruous, statements about gays, abortion, God etc. I even, in this post, got a good, Catholic priest, with a doctorate from Rome in Sacred Theology, to explain how his words don’t change the Catholic doctrine. Yesterday’s remarks about asking God ‘WHY’ blew my socks away. And then there was the Gold Pins on the Pallium incident.

But today’s statement that Rugby is NOT A VIOLENT sport really takes the cake!

What is the Pope SMOKING?

I used to play Rugby — albeit just in school in Mill Hill, London, U.K. I like Rugby. If Rugby isn’t violent then the Pope isn’t Catholic!

In hindsight I now realize that we were a barbaric bunch at Mill Hill! We went out to maim and injure. But, it was a two-way street. Much later on, when I was in my 30s and had platinum private health insurance in the U.K., called BUPA, because I was a high-flying corporate executive, a doctor had both my hands X-rayed. He calls me in and says: ‘How did you do it. Every one of your knuckles has been broken at sometime in your life … some of them multiple times’. I also had a broken, unmended, bone in my right hand — which was also a Rugby injury, that I refused to have treated.

Well, don’t take my word on Rugby and violence. Kind of funny that just this year a book came out called “Rugby Violence”!

I have been worried about this pope from Day 1. Now I am getting really worried, but for different reasons.

I found this beyond intriguing.

Catholics have always told me that you can’t in any way or form ‘tie’ God to any disasters — natural or man-made.

They would say stuff like ‘God doesn’t micro-manage‘ and the inevitable ‘Free Will‘ — though how Free Will has anything to do with a natural disaster defeats me.

I applaud this pope for this.

Right On.

WHY?

WHY?

Let me know.

This pope really is a revelation.

Now lets not forget the one of the pope’s official titles is that he is Christ’s Vicar On Earth.

‘Vicar’ means representative.

So if anybody can get an answer to this WHY it has to be the pope.

This is so great.

WHY haven’t we had a pope like this before?
