The Pope Is A Liberal

August 6, 2013

A great read came my way this morning.  I love to follow the workings of the Vatican, even though I am not Catholic.  This story has to be read all the way through to get the smile I did.  The article comes from the highly respected National Catholic Register.

Pope Francis’ papacy is changing everything about the Church and his comments  are a direct affront to traditional Catholics everywhere. The Washington  Post put it this way.

    “Something unexpected and extraordinary is happening in  the Catholic Church. Pope Francis is rescuing the faith from those who hunker  down in gilded cathedrals and wield doctrine like a sword. The edifice of  fortress Catholicism – in which progressive Catholics, gay Catholics, Catholic  women and others who love the church but often feel marginalized by the  hierarchy – is starting to crumble.”

Now, as much as many of us traditional minded churchgoers have tried to spin  it as in continuity with Pope Benedict, I think it is time we face facts. The  press is right. The Pope is a liberal and I have the quotes to prove it!
