He supposedly isn’t popular with the Vatican Curia
Maybe he can clean up the Lavender Gay Mafia mess within the Church.
I would consider him an outsider. That is what they need.
Just wait until Pope Francis gets his hands on the document that B16 left him on the Curia.
From what I read, B16 left that document for the eyes of the next Hoy Father only.
They certainly need to weed out all these gay priests once and for all. Putting the homosexual clergy out to pasture will go a long, long way to ending future abuse.
Still, as someone who is not a Catholic, I am far more concerned with the economic influence the Pope may have than I am the inner workings of the organization. When I hear that this Pope's claim to fame is "social justice", I worry - a lot. The Catholic church is not terribly friendly to free market, capitalist thinking. Far too many of their clergy, especially the Jesuits (and this Pope is/was a Jesuit), were way far left in their economic views.
