The Francis Era
How Long Until the Media Turns Against Pope Francis?

    We hardly need “Salon” to tell us whether Pope Francis is good or not. Many people are delighted that he is asking the world to 1) See Jesus, and 2) Act on a concern for the poor. THAT IS ENOUGH. Full stop.

    He is quite right that the Church need not be talking about gay marriage and abortion all the time. There are other issues and this Pope is neither a bum nor a buffoon, regardless of his media critics, and regardless of the legacy of Catholic Church dogma..

    Full disclosure: I am not a Catholic.

    More evidence that social liberals have extremely low reading comprehension.

      Especially true if reading is reasoning.

    Anyone who looks to mainstream reporters for praise of his or anyone else’s religion is looking for love in all the wrong places. Media likes religion as long as it preaches liberation theology, takes up arms against tyrants, and gets itself martyred. Once that kind of battle is won, media has no use for religion and doesn’t care who knows it.

    Among western liberals, the religious are the only group that it is acceptable to discriminate against.

    Well….as they say in Joisey: “Iz da Pope Catlik?” Inevitable, I suppose, that the media will discover that Francis is not Che Guevara after all. Nice bit of technical analysis watching Salon as a leading indicator of who may fall out of favor next.
