Will Pope Francis change the Church for the better? The acid test:

Does he release the 300+ page "secret" report detailing corruption, blackmail, and the existence of a "Velvet Mafia" at the Vatican?

If he does, and releases it with little or no redaction, then this signals that Francis is serious about cleaning up the Church.

If he doesn't, or issues a heavily redacted version, then he is signaling business as usual in Rome.

The most dangerous word in the world in all languages


"Why" is the principle tool to find truth.

The truth brings enlightenment to some and madness to others.

"Why" is the word first used when we became aware enough to have a sense of self.

"Why" is the weapon to pierce lies, for although the truth may set you free, recognizing a lie for what it is will keep you out of bondage in the first place.

One "why" always leads to another.

"Why" challenges power and the status quo.

Why do you deny me the right to love who I wish?

Why do you deny me the right to adopt children?

Why do you deny me the right to marry?

Why do you deny me control of my own body?

Why do I make more money than a woman for the same job?

Why does my skin color affect how the police treat me?

The person who wields "why" seeks truth, but invites peril.
