Although my wife is a catholic and I have the attitude of a Zen Buddhist (all that remains after removing faith and practice from Zen Buddhism), we agreed on one thing: we don't like the new pope much. I am sure he is a nice guy and all but I don't like his view that other religions are deficient. Deficient? In what ways are other religions deficient?
To me, religion is like a cane: you can either lean on it or beat others with it. Vatican's Enforcer of Faith? Well, as long as he doesn't swing his cane at me, he won't have to hear my one hand clapping.
