Interesting: Pope Francis makes it easier for Catholics to get a divorce

Or an “annulment,” the Catholic term for divorce. Story here, and as Kevin Drum points out, God (in the person of Jesus) never said a word about abortion—indeed, I can’t recall that it is even mentioned in the New Testament—but was quite clear in His opposition to divorce. So the Catholic church fights abortion (to an insane degree: a mother in Ireland died because a medically necessary abortion was refused, and a 11-year rape victim in Paraguay was not allowed to get an abortion) but eases divorce. Jesus must be bemused.
