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

Valley Independent: Don't go too far in honoring Clemente

Roberto Clemente gave us plenty of fond memories, but don't count us among the supporters of a new push to have his number 21 retired throughout Major League Baseball.

The Pennsylvania House of Representatives, which should have more pressing matters to attend to, [These pinheads obviously do not know Totalitarian Pennsylvania very well. - F.G.] passed a resolution this week asking baseball to honor Clemente in this fashion for his unique achievements as both an athlete and a humanitarian.

We recognize the enormous off-the-field contributions of Clemente, who lost his life in a 1972 plane crash while trying to deliver relief supplies to earthquake victims in Nicaragua. But the unique honor presented to Jackie Robinson should remain his alone.

I'll bet Mr. Robinson [a life-long Republican, by the way, who would be none too pleased at the way the professional racialists bandy about his honored name] would be among the first to support retiring Roberto's number. Had he been alive, he would probably refused the honor himself. You see, kiddies, Mr. Robinson [and Mr. Clemente, for that matter] was a real mensch.

Robinson's legendary No. 42 was retired for every Major League team April 15, 1997, the 50th anniversary of his debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers. His place in baseball history -- and American history -- remains unrivaled.

Robinson broke the color line at a time when baseball stood alone as America's most important sport. He was attacked, insulted and humiliated -- often by his own teammates. But his strength and resolve in the face of such opposition opened doors for minorities in other sports, and other walks of life.

Clemente's greatness is recognized throughout baseball, especially among Latin players. Sammy Sosa is among many who wear number 21 in his honor. That should be tribute enough. Let Jackie Robinson's honor stand alone.

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.
