Pope Francis is the Catholic Church's Obama - God help us | Fox News

In trying to please the media and the modern world, Francis mistakes their glee for respect. Just like Obama thought he’d won over Putin by promising a reset, Francis thinks by talking vacuously about the poor, he will be respected. And it is vacuous -- the pontiff recently asked why it’s news that the stock market drops but not when an old person dies. When your leader is asking, “Why isn’t the newspaper a laundry list of obituaries?” you know you elected the wrong guy.

What effect is this having? For all we’re being told about how ‘disenfranchised’ Catholics are being brought back by Francis ‘reaching out,’ a recent Pew Research study showed that in America, the number of people who identify as Catholic has actually decreased. Lesson: rubbing the egos of Church-hating left-wingers doesn’t make more Catholics, it just makes the Church less respected.

Francis not only panders to enemies and professional grievance mongers, but also attacks his allies. Just as Obama snubs Britain and Israel, Pope Francis swipes at practicing Catholics.
Wow. What a dick.

That is one angry young man.

Does he really think Pope Francis has had time to make a difference? Does it not matter to him that maybe people think more kindly about the Church with his representation?

I'm just going to go with 'consider the source' that being FOX.

If 42 million Republicans can ignore FoxNews, why can't we?

last stop for sanity before reaching the south
I wouldn't blame Fox. He's just an insignificant kid probably trying to make a name for himself.

It's amazing that this little nothing proselytizing from a keyboard thinks His is the right direction for the Catholic Church rather than the Pope's.

Let the grown ups talk little guy; go and play.
