    those acts, to be sure.  Judge his papacy on his acts as pope.  The early information on JPII suggested to many that he might be somewhat progressive  ( some of the "traditionalists" still thougt h was a leftie.)  He turned out to be anything but.

    •  Umm, no. (6+ / 0-)

      The "early information" on JPII was that he was a charismatic (not in the glossolalia sense) hardline conservative, and that's exactly how he turned out.

      Unless you mean the media hype, which is what we're getting with Bergoglio.  I'll judge him on his record, thank you very much.
