    it doesn't matter whether left or right, expert liars such as politicians are the ones who doublespeak and use apologies to lecture.

    Ay ay ay. The Pope lectured the USA yesterday about self-control. I guess I don't know what he is talking about anymore.

    Perhaps a new papal title is in order, "Slappy Pappy", and they can embroider it in cut precious gemstones in a papal miter, tiara or crown.

    I do not remember Jesus going around slapping people, especially children (in the head, no less) - [(the title says, "Another ridiculous Catholic ritual", though, even I have no idea what this person is doing to these kids (not sexual, I think ...)) - See this Link].

    When Jesus was pressed by the throng, and being pulled in many directions, I do not remember Jesus busting out a quick succession of karate chops - I was pretty sure that was Chuck Norris.

    Maybe we can call him "Nun"-chuck Norris?

    Hey folks, don't be too hard on this guy!!
    Perhaps even the "faithful" will now understand that the pope is just a well known human being, not "THE VOICE OF GOD"! (Too much of a pipe dream??)
    As such he is subject to all the mortal failings of everyone of us; such as not being accosted so unexpectedly by "adoring" bystanders!!

    Dr. Taylor Marshall on YouTube said that it may be that the woman is from China and wanted to talk to the Pope about the situation in China where the Communist Party is appointing the bishops and priests in the RCC churches in China under a deal brokered by former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick. Supposedly, a meeting is trying to be arranged where the Pope receives the lady at the Vatican and they reconcile personally.

    Don't be a jerk. If you were 83 and someone was pulling you off balance, might you react the same way? We know you would probably love to beat the pope to a bloody pulp, but lots of anti-Catholic bigots would.

    He is not a rock star anyway. The whole approach needs to be more dignified.

    Even public figures have a right to some personal space. She grabbed and would not let go, likely she is demanding he pay attention to her. She obviously thinks this man is being close to god, Paul and Barnabas also were thought worthy of godhood by some people in Acts 14.

    It was dropped real fast so she might have been a little crazy. Pope Francis has cut his travel schedule as he is too elderly to keep up now. She almost pulled him down to the ground. He was not well vetted. He may have been unpopular in Argentina due to his lifelong association with the ruling repressive leftist political party. His parents moved to Argentina from Italy so he really is not very Latino. He likes the Peruvian idol Pachamama and his friends are communist dictators.

    The pope holds to liberation theology, which is a marxist concoction that must be renounced.

    Pope Francis even reinstated a couple of commie priests sanctioned by Pope John Paul II, whom Pope Francis disliked. It is thought that Francis gave absolution to Fidel Castro.
