 Not your headline, salyavin, The Guardian's, calling Pope Francis a loser. wrt 
your Subject line, I like that it highlights empathy. But the lack is in many 
of the bishops, not in the Pope. I think he's a ray of light in the Catholic 
Church. We'll see if the ray brings along other rays (-:

Oh good. But he did lose the vote so that makes him a loser in this case, and 
being stuck in a hideous organisation like the Catholic church doesn't help him 
in the slightest as far as I'm concerned (all that guilt and blood drinking). 

 If he wants to fight their bigotry he should leave and campaign for equality 
from the outside. But being a pope he's probably unlikely to do that, so slow 
change from within is a better bet. Bring on the rays, the dawn starts with 
just one if I remember correctly. But it must be weird living philosophically 
so far back in the middle ages all the time, I can't imagine it. They've got so 
much catching up to do, I suppose we should be thankful that they are even 
talking about joining the 21st century.

 BTW the green figure in the bottom right of the cartoon is a troll. The UK is 
thinking about quadrupling the jail term for "offensive internet trolling" 
making it up to 2 years! 

 Another fine bit of public relations driven law making that's destined to be 
abused by whoever is in power.

   Thanks, salyavin, good article. But I think the headline is pretty dumb. If 
one reads the Pope Francis' quote, it's obvious he's a winner. What the 
situation says to me is that wherever light is strongest, in this case Pope 
Francis, there too will the dark be strongest, in this case the bishops.
