Pope Says No Phones in Church. Parishioners Keep Scrolling.

As the words “Hosanna in the highest!” echoed in the cathedral, she never looked up. That is, until she finished buying a pair of black boots off the internet on her iPhone.

“At some point, the priest during the Mass says, ‘Lift up your hearts.’ He does not say, ‘Lift up your cellphones to take pictures,’” Pope Francis said last week during a general audience at St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City, where he urged Catholics to leave their phones home.

But during Sunday Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, it seemed either the pontiff’s message had not yet reached across the Atlantic or the churchgoers were not listening.

Beside a font of holy water, tourists took in the Mass via the screens of their phones, some mounted on selfie sticks. By the entrance, devotees stood praying, but every so often phone-holding hands would pop up above the crowd to snap a picture. One man stood in the back, hunched ...

No problems Jim, I was just using your comment to bounce from.
I know your stance on RC and we're in the same camp on RC.

Dave of Oz, please note I said from a secular viewpoint referring to the Pope, not from a Christian one

Jeremiah Johnson wrote:
... as the world becomes increasingly pluralistic, believers need to be committed to protecting the purity of the gospel, resisting the world’s urging to mix it with error. We need to keep clear in our minds the black and white distinction between truth and error, and not succumb to the influence of an increasingly gray world. Here’s how John MacArthur describes the mindset believers need to foster:

"Christians preach an exclusive Christ in an inclusive age. Because of that, we are often accused of being narrow-minded, even intolerant. Many paths, it is said, lead to the top of the mountain of religious enlightenment. How dare we insist that ours is the only one? In reality, however, there are only two religious paths: the broad way of works salvation leading to destruction, and the narrow way of faith in the only Savior leading to eternal life (Matthew 7:13-14). Religious people are on either one or the other."---John MacArthur

The only time I use my cell phone during Mass on Saturday Vigil Mass is when I check the time. At that Baptist Church I attend on Sunday mornings I use my cell phone to look up the scriptures that Pastor Steve quotes during his sermon.

The Pope needs to call out to his fellow deceiver, Kenneth Copeland, so he can rebuke. The cell phone problem, as Gloria Copeland, has said before she & others have, seen Kenneth, rebuke the weather before, while flying in their Private Jet; lol!

Since the pope is infallible, the very substitute for Christ here on earth, why doesn't he just decree that cell phones no longer exist at Catholic services? Why doesn't he just utter some magic words--hocus pocus alakazam-- and cause them to disappear, the way he and his minions turn the wafers and wine into the actual body and blood of Jesus Christ? Better yet, why doesn't he admit that he is a fraud and a humbug and throw in his hand?

Bulldust Jim, he's a peanut, the Pope, and he's worried they're looking at an online Bible that would expose the RC cult for what it is.

The pope is just being a good leader -- in the secular sense - - in that he's somewhat in front of the movement but not quite. Priests in Italy and Mexico have been using cell phone jammers for years. They are illegal in the United States. PC Magazine had a fairly decent article on the problem a couple years back. http://tinyurl.com/yb2w7sh6 (4 Places That Need Cell Phone Jammers)

If you are going to keep on buying movies like The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl, make sure that someone buys indulgences for you.
