A bold charge, John Gapper. But liberation theology carries the day in the Church! Don’t dare to suggest this populism is anything but gospel truth, the Jesuits now run the show.
Anyway John … this Pope does inspire a lot more than the two relatively protestant popes John Paul and Benedict who admonished us to toil and sweat and earn our own talents. It’s much easier to believe the current one.
Good thing you address this though, the pontiff’s honeymoon is over.
