Pope Francis is the ‘Obama of the Catholic Church’: he praises the foes and is hostile to the believers.
«Pope Francis certainly has a way of stirring things up, as we can see again from today’s report on his lengthy interview with the Jesuit magazine America. That magazine, by the way, has for over 30 years been the intellectual flagship of the leftist dissident movement within the Catholic Church, especially on issues related to Church teachings on sexual morality.
I appreciate Francis’s strong encouragement for clergy and other Church leaders to get out of their parishes, head offices and NGO social agency and other institutional mentalities. He insists on a high priority being placed on personally evangelizing a world greatly in need of encountering the love of Jesus Christ.
I am however puzzled by his comment that “We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods.” Exactly who in Church institutions is actually doing that?»
