“It is a mortal sin to vote Democrat … immediately after death the souls of those who die in a state of mortal sin descend into hell.”
"We Christians have much to apologize for; and those apologies need not be confined to just one area. Ask forgiveness, and not just say we're sorry."
This is a big deal and could signal the Pope’s thinking that perhaps it is time for women to become priests.

The latest indication that Republicans will enjoin the Catholic bishops' and religious right's war against the Constitution, was disgraced former speaker of the house Tom Delay who said unapologetically that, "gays undermine his religious liberty."
