  •  And along comes another wolf (0+ / 0-)

    who really puts on the sheep's clothing... right down to the "no red shoes" look!

    The pundits can pundit and the bloggers can blog and the worshippers can get on their knees and cry "change is coming"!  BUT, the new pope decries capitalism and the church still runs its bank totally on capitalism. The vatican still sells trinkets made in China by the millions. And who knows what the bank invests in, but I'd be willing to bet it ain't adverse to a few oil companies, even ones who (gasp!) spoil the environment that Francis is so concerned with.

    And then we have poverty. The new pope has a new line of the issue of poverty and social justice.  Since women's health and the ability to plan your family size is key to the issues of poverty, social justice and economic justice, I expect the vatican to reverse itself any day now on birth control and abortion- right?   Oh, and I'm sure that Catholic Social Services will let gays start adopting kids next week.

    So there's the view from this pundit.  Am I the only one applying some good old reasonable skepticism to this whole Catholic church PR scam?
