Only if you work for the Roman Curia...

...or are a liberal secular politician. Or are a conservative secular politician. This may well be the most interesting papacy of my lifetime.

We will see. I hope that Pope Francis gets his fellow Jesuits back in line. The Jesuits of recent years have gained a reputation for being wild progressives. In fact, many of them go so far as to reject Catholic teachings in practice on many of the modern social issues (contraception, marriage, ordination, abortion, and "social justice.") Also, if I remember correctly, the Jesuits were heavily engaged in Liberation Theology until the CDF tried to suppress this Marxist rooted heresy during the papacy of John Paul II. Helping the poor is good, spreading a form of Marxism is not.

Hopefully, Pope Francis can get them back on the rails, so that they can do more good in the world than they otherwise could.
