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

Insults, Shakespeare style.

From the Shakespeare's Insults calendar:

Thy bones are marrowless, thy
blood is cold.
Thou hast no speculation* in
those eyes,
Which thou dost glare with.
(Macbeth 3.4.94-96)

*speculation - intelligence, power of rational observation

Macbeth to the ghost of Banquo, whom he murdered

He's a rank weed...
And we must root him out.
(The Life of King Henry the Eighth 5.1.52-53)

Gardiner, of Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury

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.
