Christianity more than no, no, no

"Christianity, Catholicism, isn't a collection of prohibitions," the 79-year-old Pope said. "It's a positive option ... We've heard so much about what is not allowed that now it's time to say: we have a positive idea to offer ..."

Of course, there is a pretty long list of prohibitions in Scripture. We shouldn't deny it. What we should suggest is that there is much more to our faith but that, even so, even the "nos" lead to abundant life.
