#785 Time's Person of the Year (The Pope)

I bravely resist the urge to reference episode 4 of Star Wars as we discuss A New Pope and his radical thinking about how not being a total dick is more Christ-like than, say, Michael Douglas' character in the movie Wall Street.

    glad to hear this just wasn’t a bashing religion episode (as many of our Progressive friends seem to be into these days). good segments on what we should be doing, religious or not.
