My impression is that Pope Francis didn’t articulate well by using the phrase “small minded things”.
I’m guessing he meant to say The Church can only evangelize by being loving and welcoming first.
If you are always in condemnation mode - people will tune you out.
This does not mean - as the MSM- would have us believe- that he has any intention of changing one iota of the teaching.
The Pope is still Catholic - oh the horror!

Kind of disappointed that the Pope let himself be so unclear. He’s a Jesuit, they’re supposed to be the smartest.

IMHO, Francis is playing the media. This isn’t the first time he’s said something provocative that gets the global media scrambling, misquoting, hearing what they want to hear, and then having their balloon popped when everybody is paying attention.

Every new pope that does not already have a reputation as a conservative is hailed as the new liberator of homosexuals and abortionists, etc., as essentially a mainline Protestant or Unitarian. The Press et al are hoping they can overwhelm the new pope with Approval so that he becomes what they acclaim him for. Doesn’t work.
