"He hasn't actually done much in the way of real policy changes of initiatives, and he certainly is the hope and change pope, but he's at the head of a body, the Vatican, that's very resistant to change," said the CNN commentator. "I've read, for instance, that observers say that you don't change the Vatican, the Vatican changes you."

Judging by the title, I would venture to say this is an attempt at comparing the Holy Father with our current president, which disgusts me. I find it sad and slightly amusing how much the secularists think they have a say in how the Catholic Church is run, and with what it teaches.

Since this pope actually has education, intelligence, and morals, there is hope and change will most probably be for the best.

Since the Obamadork has none of these virtues, there never was any hope, but we are seeing change all right (comparable to watching a rotting carcass).

“I’ve read, for instance, that observers say that you don’t change the Vatican, the Vatican changes you.”

What kind of tripe is that? Well, I’ve read an observer remark “Weebles Wobble but they don’t fall down.”

More paid liars from the MSM following orders and attacking the Catholic Church. None of these people have any virtue or spiritual strength. They just mindlessly attack those who believe in God and live their lives by a moral code.

The “Hope and Change” Obama slogan is insulting when applied to the Holy Father. Is the Pope going continually lie like Obama does? Is he going to bankrupt the Catholic church and create economic and moral ruin like Obama has done?

I am surrprised that even CNN would use the term. The only REAL hope and change COMES from Jesus and having faith in HIM.

“....change policy initiatives...”

It’s called DOGMA son, and it doesn’t change.
