Let me summarize the speech the Pope made to Congress in a few simple words: it … was … awesome. One thing that caught me was the Pope’s stance on the death penalty. It is truly medieval to put people to death at all, and the Pope said it was bad or ungodly by way of his speech. Here I am with two weird guys, weird men I know pretty well. My boyfriend is sitting here with us, weird as always. But regarding the Pope’s speech, it’s truly amazing that Papa Francisco, a.k.a. Pope Francis, stands by the conviction that life begins with conception and ends with NATURAL death. The Pope said stuff about climate change, but yet I don’t know if Congress will act appropriately as the Pope has spoken. He can meet with President Obama, but Mitch Mcconnel, the butt wuppin senator leader from Kentucky of all places, will roll back women’s right to choose whether to carry the spinning image of their rapists. He wants to shut down the government and make it known that we cannot play with life itself. Well, true. I like this stance on life beginning and ending naturally, but things happen. Things go wrong. You can’t count on one thing to end all life, all things end in their due time. However, the Pope’s thoughts are clear. What was he saying about marriage and the family? Yes, relationships are called into question, but the Holy Father did not include disability marriage penalties. He should include a way for us to end the marital penalty for disabled people to marry and such. His Holiness should have in any case stated that all of us, including the disabled, should dream big, have families, and think of a bright and prosperous life. But no, he didn’t.
