Pope Francis and the G.O.P.’s Bad Science - The New Yorker
Fucking goddam Republitards like this in charge of scientific offices: "They have Inhofe, who, beginning in January, will possess the authority to interfere with nearly any scientific initiative that the Obama Administration introduces. You can find the particulars of his position on climate change, and scientific research generally, in his 2012 book, “The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future.” Inhofe frequently invokes Genesis in his battle against science because, well, he is a humble man: “My point is, God’s still up there,’’ he has said. “The arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what He is doing in the climate is, to me, outrageous.”" ...................................... history-wrong-side-of = A new tag for me to collect names (Inhofe & Cruz in this case) of people I will lambaste* when I get wealthy enough to take out ads. *lambaste = Just the opposite of where we hold Einstein, Curie, etc in history.

Pope to marry couples with kids, cohabitating - Yahoo News
"Pope Francis is making good on his insistence that the Catholic Church welcome all faithful — not just those who obey church teaching perfectly. He'll marry 20 couples this weekend, including some who already live together and those with children, technically a sin in the eyes of the church. Sunday's mass wedding in St. Peter's Basilica was timed to coincide with the start of a major two-year study by the Vatican of a host of issues affecting family life, including premarital sex, contraception and divorce. No major changes in church teaching are foreseen, but Francis has made clear that he wants people in "irregular" partnerships to feel fully a part of the church."

5 Things About Popes And Their Names; Like, Why Do They Change Them? : The Two-Way : NPR
One name has been "retired." Others have never been reused. John is the most popular. It's a tradition going back to the year 533 that a new pope chooses a name other than the one he was born with. He's likely sending a message about what type of leader he hopes to be.
