Urethra Franklin said:His death has been turned into another media circus. To mourn somebody you don't actually know, whether it be princess Di, Elvis, the pope or the Queen mother, is really quite an unbvelieveably self indulgent thing to do - and smacks of insincerity.
One hopes for a successor who'll ordain women, accept gay marriage and preach that condoms save lives - but sadly that's unlikely.
First, I’ll go look into why we have two threads under the same title, sorry about that.
Second, I agree that this as well as too many things become a media circus. Seems these days the media gets a hold of something and they’re like a dog with a cheap chew toy.
Lastly, I seriously doubt the church is going to wake up to any of the things you suggest anytime soon. The church has a long history of disregarding logic and facts. Many went to their deaths telling them the earth wasn’t flat and wasn’t the center of the universe. Just as many are dying now due to the church's refusal to view things logically.
