    Pope Francis will give all priests discretion during the Roman Catholic Church's upcoming Holy Year to formally forgive women who have had abortions, in the Argentine pontiff's latest move towards a more open and inclusive church.

    In Church teaching, abortion is such a grave sin that those who procure or perform it incur an automatic excommunication. Usually only designated clergy and missionaries can formally forgive abortions.

    But from Dec. 8 to Nov. 26, during an extraordinary Holy Year or "Jubilee" on the theme of mercy announced by Pope Francis in March, all priests will be able to do so, he said in a letter published on Tuesday by the Vatican.

    In the letter, Francis described the "existential and moral ordeal" faced by women who have terminated pregnancies and said he had "met so many women who bear in their heart the scar of this agonizing and painful decision."

    I'm not sure why this is news, as long as you repent, any sin is forgiven--

    ***edit****

    I guess I'm not as up on the Canon Law as I used to be

    The pope is trying to bring people back to the church and recruit young people. Any alternative to islam is a good thing in this world.

    I grew up Catholic and they have a lot of hangups. Therefore, I guess I still do to. Some of that shit fucks you up for life.

    The priest at our old church was a total flamer. Nice guy, but it was hard to keep a straight face sometimes during some of his theatrics. It's always so hard holding back the laughter in church! :D
