I'm going to say that this new pope just gives me the willies. His cuteness, for instance, always too cute by half. Wants to play the eccentric, when people find comfort in maintaining little traditions like red shoes...and that was just the beginning. He keeps wanting to pretend that he's a man of the masses, worries security, is unconventional for the sake of it. Then there's the Jesuit "liberation theology" undercurrent.
Why this guy? Was Benedict forced out? I think we are in a world of hurt. When Jon Stewart approves, w are in trouble.
I am not Catholic but I’ve had good words to say about Francis before. I hope I don’t have to take those back.
To this time, I’ve sat back and watched/listened.
I must say, your post reflects how I’ve reacting to him.
Methinks that is the most sensible thing I have ever heard a Catholic say.
Creepily stated, mamzelle. :)
This is now the top story on Drudge and the New York Times:
This is promoting sin and evil. There is no dancing around it.
Completely agree with your thoughts. After told he was chosen by the enclave he made a comment something like “God forgive you.” That stands out now.
