    Sounding more and more like a politician and less and less like a pope, Pope Francis threw out this one for his American critics who view him as just a bit too political. According to Fox News:



    Pope Francis told a reporter on Wednesday it was an "honor" to be the subject of attacks from American religious conservatives and their Catholic allies.



    The pope was speaking with French journalist Nicholas Seneze, the author of "How America Wants to Change Popes," when he responded to his American critics while heading to Mozambique for a three-day tour of sub-Saharan Africa.



    His stances on climate change, immigration, homosexuality and theology have garnered heavy criticism from politicians and conservative Catholics and commentators. Some critics have demanded his resignation.
    “It’s an honor that the Americans attack me,” the pontiff told Seneze.



    Interesting that he characterized his critics as "the Americans" instead of 'the conservatives.' After all, the U.S. Church (and nearly all U.S. religious denominations) actually do have plenty of leftists -- they're actually dominated by them.



    Which goes to show just how coldly he views the USA with all its famous freedoms, calling to mind that like the late Venezuelan socialist dictator Hugo Chavez, he's never spent appreciable time in the U.S. He knows nothing of democracy, other than the Peronist balcony-descamisados kind practiced in Argentina with its famous Argentine economic consequences. The U.S. practice of freely speaking one's mind and questioning authority that's failing unsettles him. He gets mad. If he's the good guy, then someone who criticizes him is the devil, which of course is why it's an 'honor.' The U.S. and all its freedom is a bad place, see, but he'd nevertheless like all the world's illegal migrants he claims to champion to somehow be here.

    I don't blame him, I find it an honor to be put down by your conservatives and he never says he hates America or Americans. How dare you try and put words in his mouth.

    I left Catholicism at age 12, though I continued in their schools.

    So I've been through Pius XII, John XXIII. Paul VI, John Paul I and II, and Benedict the Footnote. All pretty fair guys, actually.

    Gotta say, I don't care much for Francis.

    Let us pray that Pope Francis remembers what true freedom is and that Jesus Christ is the source. Let us pray that Pope Francis be guided in his role as shepherd to the flock -the whole flock.

    Meanwhile, it is important to remember that not all Popes become saints. That's the way it goes.

    Shrug. Pius did what he had to do to protect the church. It was his job in a rough era.

    I also grew up Catholic, but stopped practicing years ago due to the hypocrisy, then the pedophile scandals. However, I never was disappointed about what a previous Pope said until Francis. He may not say he's a Communist, but all that he says confirms he is. He also seems to be Anti American, but due to all the money Americans GIVE to the Catholic Church, I doubt he will come out and say that.
