Your Pope is in on the joke too, guys

24 Jan

The Pope tried out some new stand-up material this weekend and yelled at (mostly American) priests for failing to provideĀ better pre-marriage counseling, since so many Catholic marriages end in “annulment.”

On Saturday, Benedict said priests had an important pastoral job to discern whether would-be spouses are prepared and able to enter into a valid marriage.

If we stop to consider exactly how much experience a priest has with this topic, maybe this is really what the Pope means when he says that homosexuals are threatening traditional marriage.
