I don't explain a Pope. I don't need to explain a Pope. People who know nothing about the Pope try to explain him to me like five blind guys explaining an elephant.

He has his way of looking at the world, and that's nice. And if the nonbelievers, and those of other faiths, like it, fine. Great.

But he's where he needs to be on doctrine. Everything else is organization and window dressing.

When saying not to obsess about 3 or 4 topics, I responded, "Yeah, he's concerned with A LOT MORE than JUST those. Not that he's NOT concerned with those, or that's he's relaxing anything."

People will take anything they like out of context and say that their definition of the man defines the man. No, Francis will define himself, and he'll do that more and more every day.

Funny, not too many people seem to be in my face about his abortion speech a day after saying we should obsess over it. Go figure.
