Welcome to Costco, the Pope Loves You

Bishop of Rome Francis likes to talk about love--how much he loves everyone, how little the Catholics of the past loved anyone, and how emphasis on rules constitutes a failure to feel the love.

In his homily on Sept. 9, 2014, for example, he spoke about love in these terms: “Love does not consider whether someone has an ugly face or a beautiful face: it loves! And Jesus does the same: He loves and chooses with love. He chooses all. Christ chooses all, regardless of how we look or our status in life and a key characteristic of everyone called by him is that they are sinners. Jesus has chosen sinners. He chooses sinners.”

That's nice. No objections here,  but I wonder if, after a while, this Sola Amor gospel doesn't begin to wear just a wee bit thin. Lately I feel like we're all being bludgeoned to death with a Hallmark card. Reminds me of a scene out of a crazy old movie about a Godless future in which Costco has taken over much of the city, morality indicates mental illness, and 'I love you' has become devoid of  any meaning whatsoever.

Pay particular attention to the facial expression on the man entering the Costco and looking at the "greeter" in confused disbelief.  In the film, this guy is new to the future and just can’t quite believe how stupid it all is. That’s pretty much my expression most of the time lately, especially since the Synod on the Family got revved up:
