More loyal to Rome?

Let me double-check my oath here.... Hmmmmm... yep, says here my oath is to the Constitution of the United States, not to Rome.

Oh, and I think your Caps Lock key is stuck. You may want to remove the Cheetos dust and Red Bull glop from there before too long.

Now then - Francis I may be a Jesuit, but that doesn't mean that he's a traditionalist in any sense of the word. My bishop was damn near spitting blood during his homily yesterday, and many of the folks who go to the Trinitine Rite mass are looking into his background and not seeing much to be happy about.

However, I'll hold my judgement until he's been Pope for more than a week. Still.... I can't say I'm thrilled.

I thought Catholics were like Marines - in that there is no such thing as an ex-Catholic or ex-Marine but rather more properly designated as "former Catholics" or "former Marines".

As a former Catholic, I like the Jesuits because they taught me how to actually think - which is why I am a "former Catholic". Touch of irony there!
I kind of thought our nation was founded to escape the tyranny (et al) and taxes of the English king, England and the Church of England (morphed Catholic lite?).

Hey, Catholics are like any other large group with a somewhat common bond (Jews, Muzzies, cat-owners [like anyone can "own" a cat?], various assorted nationalities and postal workers. Some are decently good, some are atrociously awful, and most are unremarkable.

Relax, I have no need or desire to "convert" anyone into appreciating or respecting a program that I long ago distanced myself from. But I have met a lot of Catholics (both in the military service and civilian life) whose first and primary loyalty is to "country first".

A Jesuit (yup - special ops!) Pope might be interesting; either meaningful reform - or maybe driving Rome (Vatican) into the dirt.

Sorry; I'm just kinda more a hate-the-person (or what they have done, are doing or will do) rather than hate everyone that shares some common bond. Well, except for lying, thieving politicians of every ilk (like damn near all of them)- I hate them all.

THAT THE LORD YOU ARE NOT CATHOLIC!!! BEING AN EX-CATHOLIC OF OVER 30 YEARS, I CAN
TRUTHFULLY TELL YOU THAT CATHOLICISM IS A DEMONIC NON-CHRISTIAN CULT AND THEY DON'T BELONG IN THIS COUNTRY, SINCE IT WAS FOUNDED AS A PROTESTANT NATION TO ESCAPE THE TYRANNY, TREACHERY, AND DEMONIC INSPIRED CULT. VATICAN, POPE, AND THE
JESUITS ARE STILL CURRENTLY IN CONTROL OF THIS COUNTRY AND MOST OF THE OTHERS ABOUT THE GLOBE. I HOPE I WONT' BE EXCISED FROM THIS SITE FOR GIVING YOU THE REAL
TRUTH, SINCE THAT'S WHAT KATU DID TO ME. NOW THIS CURRENT PIECE OF TRASH POPE IS
ANOTHER ONE JUST LIKE PIUS XII, THE NAZI POPE, IN HIS GENOCIDAL BEHAVIOUR IN SOUTH
AMERICA. OH, BROTHER, HOW I HOPE AND PRAY THAT WE COULD DEPORT ALL THE CATHOLICS TO ROME, SINCE THEY ARE MORE LOYAL TO ROME THAN THIS COUNTRY!!!
