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

Guantanamo plea deal prisoner said to have a cat

A former Maryland resident who is detained at Guantanamo Bay seems to have acquired a cat at the isolated prison on a U.S. base in Cuba, a fellow prisoner says in a letter released Friday.

Majid Khan has not been seen in public since he pleaded guilty in February to aiding al-Qaida in a deal that requires him to testify against others at Guantanamo. Details of his confinement are shrouded in secrecy as he is one of about a dozen men the Pentagon calls "high-value detainees," who are kept apart from others.

The letter from prisoner Rahim al-Afghani has one intriguing bit of information and little else: "Majid Khan has a cat," he writes to his lawyer, Carlos Warner, a federal public defender in Cleveland, Ohio.

Warner, who released the letter after it had undergone a required government security review, said he suspects Khan may have gotten a pet as a reward for agreeing to cooperate. He can't disclose anything else the prisoner has said about this or any other subject because al-Afghani is also a high-value detainee and everything he says, even to his lawyer, is considered classified.

"I can't confirm or deny whether he wants an adorable kitten," Warner said in a phone interview.

Khan's lawyer, Wells Dixon, declined comment and a Pentagon spokesman, Army Lt. Col. Joseph Todd Breasseale, said he is prohibited from discussing any details about Khan's confinement.

Prisoners are not allowed to have pets but Breasseale said there are stray cats, as well as banana rats and iguanas, that roam the base and prisoners have been known to feed them, though prison officials discourage the practice. "It's possible he's befriended one," the spokesman said.

Due to time constraints, we now move to further action...
Al-Afghani's lawyer, meanwhile, complained that the chief prosecutor for the Guantanamo tribunal, Gen. Mark Martins, has been unwilling to hold discussions with attorneys for other prisoners unless their clients agree to cooperate with the government.

In his case, that might seem unlikely considering a second letter he released which references a famous side-switcher, Lebron James, the NBA superstar known for ditching the Cleveland Cavaliers for the championship-winning Miami Heat.
"Lebron James is very bad man," the prisoner wrote. "He should apologize to the city of Cleveland."

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.
