One pervasive malady present in daily life is substituting credentials for competence and not understanding the consequences. Being euphemism free, I observe the pope’s speeches and activities according how he functions.
Pope Francis has either not read the New Testament or he is ignoring it. The pope is not alone. Perhaps one in one thousand rank and file Catholics has read the bible. That is not a bad number. Among Christians, especially those who flaunt their faith, only a tiny fraction are familiar with the scriptures.
Jesus was clearly non attached with respect to the secular world, which includes government and world leaders. Jesus encouraged his disciples to be non attached also. Pope Francis. It is Pope Francis’s approach that countries should disregard enforcing laws on an as you go basis instead of repealing the laws. Any wall Trump would build would be an effort to enforce a law that is already on the books. Passing laws and not enforcing them is highly destructive and results a in diminished compliance will laws in general.
Pope Francis is not a Christian but he is a Catholic and head of that church. This is a Catholic issue and if they happy with it being that way, so be it. But, now that Pope Francis is causing problems for the rest of us outside of his church, I feel just fine in reining him in as I would any world leader.
