TIGHT ASS TUESDAY: Pope Promotes Mercy, Krazies Tighten Noose
Monday Pope Francis extended to all priests the faculty to absolve penitents from the sin of abortion as well as all censures and interdicts related to that act. Previously this was reserved to diocesan bishops.
Almost immediately upon its promulgation the Saint Tight-ass Brigade issued its clarifications. Why the concept of mercy needs to be clarified is beyond me. Anyway.
It it a good thing.
The Pope wants priests to be able to make compassionate decisions and help people heal without involving canoeists and chancery flunkies.
