      I'm not a Catholic, therefore the Pope should have no bearing on my life.

      the man who said this:

      In 2009 Bergoglio made headlines when he criticised the government of Ernesto Kirchner, husband of current Argentine president Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, claiming it was "immoral, illegitimate and unjust" to allow inequality in the country to grow. "Rather than preventing that, it seems they have opted for making inequalities even greater," he said. "Human rights are not only violated by terrorism, repression or assassination, but also by unfair economic structures that creates huge inequalities," he said at the time.
      is now the spiritual leader of paul ryan.

      surely that is worth watching unfold as a voice as powerful as a pope's is now set counter to the direction that so many wan t to take this country in....

    •  Keeping the Immigrants Down (0+ / 0-)

      For a South American this Pope is extremely White. His life has been dedicated to keeping South Americans down, not empowering them. Now he's got as much power to do that as he could dream of, with a global reach of lieutenants.

      This pope is the status quo taking firmer control of (US) immigrants at their source.
