    It could be a lot worse. How’s the crocheting?

    • Katrina Fernandez

      I’m crocheting a noose.

        Please post the pattern. XL for the big girls, please.

    Is it truly a bad thing that over a million people tuned in last night to watch two Catholics talk about our Holy Father?

  • Lisa Graas

    That analogy doesn’t really work for me.

    The Pope…Metallica…nope, nothing to complain about.

    • Gordis85

      I’ll take Papa Francis but leave Metallica out. ^^

  • ATDP

    Is it not evident that so many, including those who conducted the interview, see in Pope Francis an icon of their long-awaited sea change? I find Fr. Martin to be as slippery as they come.

    • Illinidiva

      Martin is a priest in good standing. I enjoyed his book especially My Life with the Saints.

      As for this, is it really that upsetting? Dolan was on the Colbert Report a few weeks back.

      • ATDP

        That seems like settling for a lowest common denominator.
        And being on the Colbert Report isn’t the problem here.

        • Illinidiva

          It is where most people get their news.

          • ATDP

            Really? That’s sad, then. It’s a comedy act.
