  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

    COMMENTARY: Thankfully there have been few public expressions of this morbid sentiment during the current papacy, in contrast to the situation during the papacies of St. John Paul II and Benedict XVI.


    This year the visit to pontifical graves invited another, more disturbing, question: Who wants Pope Francis to die?

    The Holy Father suggested that there are at least some. Meeting with Jesuits in Slovakia last September, he responded to a question about his health after colon surgery earlier in the summer.

    “Still alive, even though some people wanted me to die,” Pope Francis said.

    Which is an odd and dark thing to say. Are there people who wish him to die? And how would Pope Francis know that?

    I don't remember hearing or reading a direct, 'I want Francis to die', but I have read the more veiled, 'It would not be good for the Church to depose him, that would set a precedent. We just need to wait for him to die.'
    (
    I won't reveal names though).

    I’m sure he’s got his haters. The drunk priest aside, no sane person would wish that. I’ve had this conversation with family members about Trump and his supporters. That kind of thinking is beyond me.
