Well said, Mrs. D. It’s hillarious how the media left keeps doing this selective editing, and we keep lapping up their drivel.
I’m one of many Catholic FReepers who is grateful for Pope Francis and his approach to evangelization in the modern world. He ticks off the left and the right in pretty equal measure, which is fine by me. And yes, he believes in social justice, to the same level that has been taught since the Sermon on the Mount - which includes both love for the unborn AND love for the lowest among us. Why the two can’t go hand in hand I’ll never know.
II'm with you. Hoosier. Mother Teresa seemed to be able o combine all the important stuff in one obstinate (but humble) package.
If you're intimating that those of us from the liturgical and socially conservative right who aren't particularly infatuated with the new pope don't profess both love for the unborn and love for the poor, you're wrong.
