The Two Vicars

One, the elected supreme pontiff, selected by a Conclave of Cardinals, after a lifelong process of evaluation and climbing through the Ranks of the Catholic Church until he reaches the position of Vicar of Christ.

The other, the Vicar of Putney, west London.

How come the second gets things so exactly right, while the first gets things so spectacularly wrong, against both the Historical Record, Science and even Scripture itself?

FYI. The quoted links (...long-standing policy... & ...Transitioning Our Shelters...) are broken.

From the article being discussed:

So where does this religious obsession with making babies come from?

I think it comes from natural selection. Religions that weren't pro-natal didn't survive.

Err, given you didn’t explain why you thought Pope Benedict was wrong and the pretend priest from Putney was right I take it you’re just indulging in some kind of wishful thinking.
