Aeneas Sylvius looked upon woman as an alter to God.
They were created by God to give man pleasure. To this end
he devoted his life in the pursuit of eros. Through the cleverness
of his descretion he rose up the hierarchy of the clergy and
was chosen Pope. "We hold to the Vicar the absolute preservation
of the faith." Aeneas decreed; "Therefore, we pray Lord forgive our
youth and let us not condemb the sinner, but the ignorance of sin."
A great out cry rose from the lay people as this Pope allowed

The Popes are not infallible, but should they not have liberty to speak
to their times?
Reflections: One act of compassion is worth a thousand thanks when
things are agreeable to our inclinations.
