No. However, I'm fairly well versed in the faith having taken classes and read “Father Smith Instructs Jackson” when I was about 12 as they wouldn't let my mom sing in the choir unless she took instruction, and so she took me along with her.

I love aspects of The Church, and would hope for the spirit of true irenicism to abound in Pope Francis. Though I'm afraid he is playing fast and loose in an ultimately failed attempt to strike a concordance between fealty to Jesus and plain “in your face” sin. There is no such thing and the Pope must be either tremendously naive or motivated by something more sinister in having the nerve to try to pass this off on The Church. There seems no third possibility.
