The Papacy needs to have lavish and regal trappings, based on the dignity of the position.
The point was that the new guy seemingly hasn't gotten that particular memo. It doesn't seem like just an act, either. Or if it is, it's one he's been consistent with for years?
Extending benefit of the doubt...I'll try to take as much possible at face value, as most should have extended towards Mr. Ratzinger. Doing so seemed to work well enough in regards to the Pope Emeritus as he's now titled by some. Until or unless something else arises which overwhelms and overturns, then the new guy get's the same courtesy. Mere challenges or complications don't equal overturning or refutation...but more like reflection of the human condition. Such is life, no?
