Paul Kengor, of Grove City (Pa.) College, delivers quite a case of pope portrayed as Nancy Pelosi Catholic and being taken as poster boy for gay marriage and the like (including the Mike Madigan debacle on the floor of the Illinois house!) and concludes with advice for Francis:
Thus, I say with all due respect, deference, and sincerity that this pope needs to be really careful about what he’s saying. If he doesn’t, this boil will continue to fester. Unless he clarifies things better, and more strongly affirms and articulates Church teachings, this situation will get worse, spreading major errors throughout the Church, the country, the culture, and the world.
A case of withstanding Peter to his face, if mildly compared to Paul’s action.
