01) Pope Changes Church’s Teaching On Capital Punishment


“Pope Francis has changed church teaching about the death penalty, saying in a new policy published Thursday that it is always “inadmissible” because it “attacks” the inherent dignity of all humans.

The Vatican said Francis had approved a change to the Catechism of the Catholic Church — the compilation of official Catholic Church teaching. Previously, the catechism said the church didn’t exclude recourse to capital punishment “if this is the only possible way of effectively defending human lives against the unjust aggressor.”

      When I “was a Baptist”…I always kind of envied Catholics, for their architecture and art…It was exotic, in comparison to the boring, mundane Baptist church…

      …Plus…they always seemed to take their religious rules, way less serious…

      I never really wanted to convert to Catholicism, however…

      …It just…I don’t know…

      …Theism, in general, lost it’s shine.

      I couldn’t bring myself to trade one, for another.

      …It just didn’t make any sense to me, to do that.

      …But, I like a lot about the current Pope.
