A Pope for everyone! May 7, 2007Posted by kevlarchick in Religion.
I know most of you are not Catholic and possess a healthy ambivalence towards the 2000 year old religious monolith. Here’s some light reading that may change everything for you. Pope Benedict XVI has published his first encyclical, entitled “God is Love.” Some highlights:
- Interesting discussion of eros and agape – sex is a really, really good thing.
- This quote: “We do not need a State that regulates and controls everything.” Il Papa probably packs.
- Several references to Vita Sancti Martini, which translates roughly to say “martinis are sacred and life-giving.”
