"Pope Francis washed and kissed the feet of a dozen inmates at a juvenile detention center"

Will wash someone's feet, but won't protect someone from getting AIDS. Makes sense

He washed the feet of everyday people - not priests as it is tradition. He also washed the feet of a couple of young women. Females were never part of this.

So it is something. Yeah, a lot of work needs to be done, and washing and kissing the feet of youths sounds creepy to some. A step forward and then a step back, perhaps?

I didn't really mean that the Pope is pedophile. I was just addressing how some may see this.

If anyone sees that as anything below a very symbolic religious gesture then they're the ones with the screwed up minds. Just my opinion.

this church is always going to have a pope

and as that goes, this man seems to be about the best person I have seen in that position that I can recall


bottom line, if nothing else, just the example he sets puts him way above the others.

That's OK, I have nothing against you having an opinion. But I'd like it if you were a little more clear in your posts.

The fact that kissing juvenile feet can be seen as creepy is the fault of the catholic church and no one else. Nobody is implying that it's sexual, but in light of not so distant events, you better believe the comments are going to fly (as they should)

It's a much bigger deal that women were involved.

I thought it was pretty clear that the washing of feet is a symbol of the Christian religion. The idea that it is anything less than that is people trying to see controversy involving children where there is none. In fact, he probably washed the feet of children because of what all happened, where in are you confused with my post?

As in earlier in this thread, I hope you're not taking my post to have been written out of anger. I simply was stating that I find the idea that anyone would sexual this or take it as some sort of negative to be fairly ridiculous. At that point, it just seems like one is picking on every member of the Catholic church simply because they can.

As an organization, the Catholic Church certainly has a lot of issues to deal with. I don't think anyone is seriously saying that this man has a young foot fetish, but of course the innuendo is going to come up. That said, there's a difference between criticizing the organization itself and criticizing practicing Catholics. I wouldn't take it personally (not that I think you are)

In short, all I'm saying is you can't blame people for having these thoughts

I just think there's a limit to when they're really legitimate feelings, that's all. But I think I've made my opinion clear on this on .
