The New Pope

New PopeWe all want to be hopeful about a new pope, but just because the guy likes to wear old shoes and cook his own food, that does not make him a progressive. He is flatly, publicly, actively, and historically against:

liberation theology
gay marriage,
contraception & abortion,
the ordination of women,
and if he doesn’t address sexual abuse by clergy in the first 60 days, then the only thing that will be new in this version of the ship is the arrangement of the deck chairs.

For more, just Google the pope & Mary E. Hunt, Marian Ronan, or Susan Thistlethwaite, or look at: http://religionandpolitics.org/2013/03/18/theology-has-consequences-what-policies-will-pope-francis-champion/
