Francis is, according to kooks and reactionaries, just the worst. I thought the End was beginning at the Assisi conference in 1987. Or when refugee Jews prayed in the Vatican when Pius XII sheltered them. Or when the pope failed to heed the Reformers. Or when this or that or the other Chicken Little declared the Beginning of the End. The world came to an end when Jesus overcame it by his passion and resurrection. Everything else is mop up.
