It seems Pope Francis needs to brush up on his Tertullian!

It has been reported (in The ChristLast Media, I must note) that the current Pope does not like the phrase "lead us not into temptation...

"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

From the Shakespeare's Insults calendar:

I think you are all mated* or
stark mad.
(The Comedy of Errors 5.1.282)

The Duke of Ephesus to a group of people for whom a case of mistaken identity has caused mass confusion.

Snakes, in my heart-blood
warmed, that sting my heart!
(The Tragedy of King Richard the Second 3.2.131)

King Richard the Second,of his treasonous followers.

Milk-livered man,
That bear'st a cheek for blows, a
head for wrongs...
(King Lear 4.2.50-51)

Goneril, of her father, Lear.

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
