“Popes are busy people, and unlike the previous two popes who brought a record of serious theological and philosophical writing with them to the Vatican, I don’t think Pope Francis is in their league.”Reagan had John Paul II to work with. Obama has Francis I. Each has a perfect match. Then, they saw the dangers of Communism and its sister philosophies on the left, socialism and progressivism. The current leaders are men with a socialist agenda and willing to throw everything else under the bus to achieve it.
“John Paul II, for example, shared some sympathy with the essence of ‘liberation theology,’ but he understood that in practice liberation theology was a fillip to Marxist totalitarianism, which is why he publicly opposed it. As I’ve pointed out before, Francis is bringing it back.”We see dramatic differences between administrations. I guess the Catholic church is having the same experience. My opinion of the Catholic church was improving. I saw Catholics taking stands and carrying the battle for truth and morality. I now see that being reversed.
Maybe Francis will follow his predecessor and retire early.
