It seems like an intense focus on politics ... this is a site mainly about politics, after all ... puts some people into a, “We have no King but Caesar!” mindset, so that they have trouble seeing past politics to Christ and the individuals who make up His body on Earth.

That’s the sense I get from the many posts on the order of, “He should have said (yadda government this, politics that) instead of ‘Jesus offers love and healing to drug addicts, and so does the Church’.”

Sadly.

Myself, I ID myself as a Catholic, Conservative, FReeper...in that order.

I guess if our Church hierarchy in this country (e.g., the ubiquitous Bishop Blaire (D-CA)) would stop meddling in partisan politics and would take the lead of the Holy Father, it would be a lot easier for them to not interpret Francis' messages as political.
