RE: Papal Hypocrisy?
It seems we're back to the old supernaturalistic vs. humanistic argument. You take great pride in your humanism. I choose another belief.
Don't be mistaken, both are simply choices one makes. Both are, in the end, matters of faith.
Your, obviously, great education, even on biblical matters, is thoroughly humanistic, and so you reach humanistic conclusions.
Yes, Christianity is a bloody religion. Its not the way I would have set it up, but it is what is.
Jesus made many allusions to His coming death, from the earliest part of His ministry; its not true that its simply a later pauline interpretation.
We are all free moral agents. You are free to choose your own beliefs.
