    Sounds like a good thing if you ask me.

    That's about as far as I will get involved in the matter of abortion.

    what a fantastic Pope.

    I'm sure the Christian Taliban will freak out by this, but I don't give 2 fu*ks what they think.

    I don't agree with everything he says but he seems to be a very kind man.

    I'm not catholic so it doesn't matter to me really.

    If they can forgive murder, why can't they forgive abortion? Or can they forgive murder? Seems to me they should since Saint Paul was a murderer of Christians before he became an evangelist.

    Who does this pope think he is with all this forgiving stuff. That's not the catholic church I know.

    Empty actually.

    It doesn't mean anything to the actual abortion issue, because all it does it forgive. It still fully supports criminilizing abortion and it only applies to people who are Catholic and seek forgiveness after the fact when they know it was against the rules they where sopposed to follow. So "Yey!!?1 such an asweom3Ness Pope!"

    This doesn't conflict with the banning stance. So a big fat meh.

    Because the chuch deals with moral matters, cheating on your wife is perfectly legal that doesnt changes the fact that its morally wrong.

    Because the Church deals with trying to influence their version of morality into the law. Criminilizing abortion isn't a moral issue, it's a legal issue.

    They want to criminilize abortion.

    Or is that not the topic here?

    I failed to see the part where Francis asks for jail time for abortionists.

    Every sin is equal in the eyes of the lord, so if you can be forgiven for touching yourself in the shower, obviously it follows that abortion is no different.

    God forgives all our sins. Including abortion. We just need to repent.

    Read the damn link, or the part that JDragon quoted.

    Abortion was always forgivable, its just that a bishop had to do it. A bishop is a high-level priest. Now, even a lower level priest can forgive abortion. And I'm not even joking though I wish I was.

    People are saying how liberal and merciful this pope is, but that's just bullshit. The church is losing members and this measure is there to prevent young women/couples already abandoning a dying church.
