There is something quietly hilarious to me…

…about the self-appointed combox paladins of Real Catholics Against Bad Pope Francis suddenly developing a horror of “ambiguous language” while standing guard over a religious tradition that includes the Book of Revelation and all the parables and sayings of Jesus. [Read more…]

Tom Hoopes Gets Francis

A perceptive take. This whole pontificate can only be understood in light of the words “He has preached good news to the poor.” If you don’t get that and really look at the world from the perspective, you will not get him and you may very well wind up fighting him–and losing. [Read more…]
