A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing: the Hypocrisy of Pope Francis

Pope Francis is often heralded in the West as a stridently progressive voice, as far as popes go. Unfortunately, I fear that this characterization of Francis is far too generous and it is the result of the unscrupulous cherry picking of a select few positions he has vocalized to the public. Not only does Francis often take a couple very general crowd-pleasing positions, he also changes those views depending on the audience. For example, he is very much idealized in the US for coming out in support for homosexuals, but when he is speaking to a less progressive audience like, say, the one he addressed in the Philippines earlier this year, he spoke out against efforts to “redefine the very institution of marriage,” an obvious slight against same-sex marriage. By now this reasoning is but a boring platitude, but it is not entirely unconvincing to his audience. After all, claiming to be the Vicar of Christ on Earth does command certain reliability when it comes to gaining public attention, especially amongst a crowd of faithful individuals. [Read more...]
