GUEST,Patsy BS: Church joins real world (612* d) RE: BS: Church joins real world 16 Jul 14

The only important part of the real world that the Church has joined is about the issue regarding the terminally ill and the right to end their suffering. This is more to do with what real people are having to deal with in their lives and at least being discussed in a more sensitive way. I am not making an opinion whether it should be or not everyone's experience in that situation. As for agonising over the ordination of female bishops to me personally it is just an ongoing waste of time. In a fair modern world I would have thought it would have changed by now as it did having women in the Fire brigade but then I don't attend church that often so it really makes no difference to me. If I really felt opposed to it as a regular attendee I would change faith convert to Catholicism and that would be that.

Talking of real worlds I note that Pope Frances has given the ok on Exorcisms. At first I did wonder about this having seen the film but I think I can see where he is coming from, if people need this and can only benefit by having this way of treating the mind directly it could prevent people rushing off to the GP for anti-depressants/medication or would this do more damage? I would be interested to hear other opinions about this however I can't imagine many female clergy volunteering for it somehow!
