All I know is that there's no better cover for a molester than a celibate priest. The fact that he's never seen with women fails to arouse suspicion; they chalk it up to his piety. He interacts with children on a daily basis, and the credulous parents trust him. A mistake as it turns out, given all the reports of sexual abuse occurring within the Catholic Church, going back decades.

That is really going to change things in Mexico. Mexicans are very religious until they leave the front door of the church.

Religion is a strange beast in Mexico as it is mixed up with a load of Indian superstition. Frankie should have condemned the corruption which is the biggest problem in Mexico not drugs. Everyone is so open about it. Any official you have to deal with expects his cut otherwise any application you make will have lead boots and stay at the bottom of the pile.

But that would be the god which routine;y tells different believers different things, not only resulting in Judaism, Christianity and Islam, but in huge numbers of Christian and pseudo-Christian sects and the various warring factions in Islam.

He is.
That's probably one of the reasons he's still so popular in the Deep South.

Is she to be the patron Saint of pointless suffering from holding prayer and faith above evidence based medicine (unless you're a pope obviously)?

Catholic Church: Pope Francis urges greater family understanding

There's a link to the entire document in pdf format for those who like to read lots of weasel words.
