"Evvvverrrr-RREeeeEEeee sperrrrem is sacred everreerreeee sperm is great,

I just look at the current changes as Catholicism for the 21st century.

The church I believe picked the previous pope knowing he was a hard liner conservative. They also knew he was quite old and would not sit long. So the Vatican was able to keep the conservative face for a bit of time but knew that progressive changes were needed to be made since church attendance is on the decline along with diminishing donations. (just a theory of mine)

Then they picked a younger more progressive pope.
He has the authority to "make stuff up." Just like King Henry had the authority to anoint himself the head of the Church of England. Yes made stuff up.

Sensing a theme here. They all make stuff up!

I personally am glad these, (imo) positive changes to this ancient institution are being implemented.

The Catholic church and it's policies, be they made up or not, are still a institution that grounds and forms a positive influence in many peoples lives.

I can see why non believers feel the Catholics are making stuff up though, many Catholics are probably thinking the same thing.

Bible-based Protestant Christianity is at least consistent in sticking to what the Bible says. There may be disagreements about what it says on minor points but there isn't any of this making things up and changing doctrines to suit the times.

Yes, yes it's good to know we can count on the Protestants to double down on unwavering made up stuff that seems to perpetuate intolerance, ignorance and pious aggrandizing.

Clarion call
I also think that if it is your lot in life to forgo religion and you are of the opinion that it is all bunch of made up bullshit, this opinion should not become a clarion call to defecate on everyone else 's beliefs.

Atheist have no dog in this fight, or I miss my guess.
