Pope Francis on a roll with stupid remarks

Lately, the pope's really been on a roll, extinguishing people's expectations that he might be reasonable and modern. Ha. He said contraceptives are evil, gays are a threat to "traditional" marriage, and now he's said this:
“Women have much to tell us in today’s society,” the Pope said, drawing applause from the crowd at the University of Santo Tomas in Manila. “Sometimes we’re too macho, and we don’t leave enough room for women.”

Pope Francis also said that women should be included because they’re able to “see things with different eyes” than men.

“Women are able to ask questions that men can’t understand,” he said.
You mean, questions like "why can't we be priests and cardinals and popes?"

Same old church, same old restrictions on liberty, sex and enjoyment. Did you know you're not allowed to have fun during sex? This is a real Catholic teaching. Bizarre. And of course, they see gay marriages as being all about teh sex. Love ain't got nuthin' to do with it.

Pope Francis is just another sad, silly man in a dress. Move on, nothing to see here. (Nothing new, anyway.)

PS: I have nothing against men in dresses, of course. Go for it, if that's your thing. But religious men in dresses who go around launching verbal missiles at gay men...that, I have a problem with.
