Pope Francis drops the mic and walks away. :laugh:
According to the National Catholic Reporter
and all Wiki says is that he graduated with a chemical technicians diploma.
So, should we start a new thread called "poor Francis"?
More like poor crabby since he started this thread with wrong info. His usual tactic.
I think Crabby doesn't fact check his stuff before he posts it. We know that he frequently posts things without reading the articles.
I'd say that RD2 and Crabby have the same modus operandi--Post something provocative without checking for accuracy.
Salty, you are right, but only up to a point. Guess you should have read a bit more.
I am sure the other posters will apologize for their caustic mistaken posts. Kind of returns to bite them in the posterior. Those kind of nasty replies do nothing but encourage me to post others and see how ignorant they really are seeing as how they cannot discussion anything rationally. [Not you Salty ... but a few other friends.]
and yet here is an article saying he doesn't have a masters degree.
You are citing a refuted post. Refuted by catholic operated news source.
"Numerous press reports are saying that*Pope Francis has a master's degree in chemistry, including one that incorrectly cites me as a source. Sorry, it is not true."
"Bergoglio did receive a secular education aimed at employment in a technical field," Liebscher said. "However, he did not receive a university degree in chemistry."
Does field training define someone as a scientist? If so, we have a ton of scientists in the world. Most wouldn't call themselves that.
*quotes are from the first link Salty posted. Which is 3 days old.
I'll take the word of Forbes ... a magazine with a very a good reputation. Also others report the same.
From the official biography on the Vatican website:
He was born in Buenos Aires on 17 December 1936, the son of Italian immigrants. His father Mario was an accountant employed by the railways and his mother Regina Sivori was a committed wife dedicated to raising their five children. He graduated as a chemical technician and then chose the path of the priesthood, entering the Diocesan Seminary of Villa Devoto. On 11 March 1958 he entered the novitiate of the Society of Jesus. He completed his studies of the humanities in Chile and returned to Argentina in 1963 to graduate with a degree in philosophy from the Colegio de San José in San Miguel. From 1964 to 1965 he taught literature and psychology at Immaculate Conception College in Santa Fé and in 1966 he taught the same subject at the Colegio del Salvatore in Buenos Aires. From 1967-70 he studied theology and obtained a degree from the Colegio of San José.
Read it and weep.
Honestly, fact checking is pretty easy. Try it sometime.
Did the Pope actually respond to Santorum by saying he was a scientist as indicated in the op?
Naah. I thought it was intended to be a satirical piece based upon reports that he had received a Masters in Chemistry.
Isn't Santorum a Catholic? He better lay off Pope Francis before he finds himself on some Italian family's menu.
Pope Francis preaches Liberation Theology--that is, communism. Pope John Paul II said that Liberation Theology came from the communist party.
An article with no sources listed.
The Vatican says he is a technician. Nothing about Master's degree in chemistry.
*never mind. In the light already posted this.
