Between married couples, that is.

Excerpts from his 260-age ‘Joy of Love’ text reveal Francis’ belief that the pursuit of sexual pleasures helps life become ‘good and happy’ and should be considered a ‘gift from god…

‘A healthy sexual desire, albeit closely joined to a pursuit of pleasure, always involves a sense of wonder, and for that very reason can humanise the impulses,’ he said.

‘In no way, then, can we consider the erotic dimension of love simply as a permissible evil or a burden to be tolerated for the good of the family. Rather, it must be seen as gift from God that enriches the relationship of the spouses.

‘As a passion sublimated by a love respectful of the dignity of the other, it becomes a pure, unadulterated affirmation revealing the marvels of which the human heart is capable.

‘In this way, even momentarily, we can feel that life has turned out good and happy.’

    Wow. I love this Pope’s humanity, honesty and inclusiveness.

      Not related, but thought you would like this article about Hillary … https://consortiumnews.com/2016/04/08/is-hillary-clinton-qualified/

        Thanks for the link. It’s amazing how her supporters refuse to recognize her significant misjudgments, lack of integrity and blatant lying.

          Besides that one war story, what lying?

          Are you listening to Fox News again?

              It’s truly unfortunate that many cant see it that Hillary is a pathological liar. Both her and Bill are corrupt and have continued to mesmerize many believing that both are working for them. The two are worse than the republicans because they really are true DINO in my book.

          • jybarz

            Fox News?
            So you think I watch that rubbish?
            You don’t have to be smart to see Clinton is a bloody liar and corrupt.
            And if you can’t see that, then you’re not too smart!

          • jybarz

            I posted this video before and you obviously did not have the courage to watch it because it might actually open your mind about the true Hillary.

    great news …….except if you are Santorum, looking for a way to make sex exclusively for procreation…….but what would help make couples enjoy sex together more would be when the Pope comes out and says birth control is the responsible thing to do. Remove that and let them go!

  • Mike

    This guy is like a shock-jock Pope…I never thought I’d be around to hear a Pope speak honestly about many of the issues this Pope has tackled…nothing short of shocking…

  • William

    I KNEW it!

      He. He.

      What’s the cost if not paid in six months?

      • William

        I’m sure whatever it is, it’s very severe.

    People often misunderstand the conservative Christian position on sex.

    Recreational sex is fine.

    As long as it is between straight, married couples. Nobody else.

    Well, except that vast majority of conservative young people who repent right before marriage and teach chastity to their kids.
