It isn’t every day (or for that matter, every century) that you see a pope take on the hierarchy of his church. As one of the millions of “practicing, but shouldn’t be” Catholics, I am cheering him on.
You see, as a Catholic who divorced and remarried, I am condemned to hell. Why, you non-Catholics ask? Well, the church says that remarrying without having the first marriage annulled is a sin; and if you die with sin on your soul, you are headed south (or whatever direction hell is).
