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...

Insults, Shakespeare syle.

From the Shakespeare's Insults calendar:

Why, this is an arran counterfeit
rascal! I remember him
now-a bawd, a cutpurse.
(The Life of King Henry the Fifth 3.6.60-61)

Gower, a captain, of Pistol, a commoner who has joined Henry's forces.

A pox o' your throat, you
bawling, blasphemous, incharitable
(The Tempest 1.1.38-39)

Sebastian, Prince of Naples, to the boatswain, who is convinced their ship is going down in a storm and they will all die.

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.

Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
