Sunday thoughts #35: Pope Francis says Fundamentalism is an illness

From the Francis:

In ideologies there is not Jesus: in his tenderness, his love, his meekness. And ideologies are rigid, always. Of every sign: rigid. Pope Francis radical cartoonAnd when a Christian becomes a disciple of the ideology, he has lost the faith: he is no longer a disciple of Jesus, he is a disciple of this attitude of thought. The knowledge of Jesus is transformed into an ideological and moralistic knowledge, because these close the door with many requirements. The faith becomes ideology and ideology frightens, ideology chases away the people and distances the people.  It is a serious illness, this of ideological Christians. It is an illness, but it is not new, eh?

I am curious about everyone and everything, know a lot about some things, a little about others, nothing about still others. I've got roughly half my life to go, and I want it to count, and be damn fun, too. I want to leave the world better than I found it, and grow and change myself in the process.
