...or solutions that work for the common good. The Pope stressed "dialogue" between adversaries to arrive at mutual understanding and humane answers to the problems facing all of us. He said nothing to compromise his belief in Catholic Doctrine. The Church 's position on issues such as gay marriage, abortion and women priests remains the same. But Pope Francis emphasizes those instances in which we do agree. I can 't say whether or not anything changed because of His Holiness ' eloquent words. Pope Francis is a man of great charisma. He is a champion of human dignity, he is a voice for social responsibility, Pope Francis is a protector of Mother Earth, he advocates for dialogue among men not armed conflict. Pope Francis will not isolate himself in the Vatican but will continue to lead the humane fight for human dignity, social responsibility and mutual cooperation.

- Pope Francis: Humanist or Conservative. There 's a lot of debate over the controversial Pope Francis regarding him being too lenient towards the Catholic people and what should and shouldn 't be classified as a sin- who shouldn 't need worry about being damned or blessed.

- “A wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of the good government, and this is necessary to close the circlue of our facilities”- Thomas Jefferson.

- Pope Admiring Belinda in The Rape of the Lock The main character of Pope's "The Rape of the Lock" could be considered both hailed and damned by the overseer, but the complexities and sometimes contradictions of Belinda spark a more unbiased view.

- September 11: Awakening the Spirit of America Late in September I found myself talking to Quaker kids: solid citizens all, more hard-working, serious, and responsible than 13-to-16-year-olds ought to be. But pacifists, mostly, and to a person they were worried, even scared. Bush had not yet delivered his "either with us or against us" speech, I think, but the message was abroad: school friends and others had given the teens to understand pretty clearly that criticism of the U.S. amounted to support for the terrorists....

- Alexander Pope's An Essay On Man Alexander Pope's An Essay On Man is generally accepted as a wonderfully harmonious mass of couplets that gather a variety of philosophical doctrines in an eclectic and (because of its philosophic nature) antithetic muddle. No critic denies that Pope's Essay On Man is among the most beautifully written and best of his works, but few also deny that Pope's Essay On Man is an incoherent conglomeration of "incongruous scraps" ("A Letter..." 88) of philosophical axioms....
