  •  Robertson's church is notoriously anti-Catholic (5+ / 0-)

    Robertson is an "elder" in the Church of Christ denomination. It is notoriously anti-Catholic. Where's Bill Donahue on this one?

    •  Robertson's church is more rigid (3+ / 0-)

      that is the historic pattern of the Catholic Church on a number of issues - in a sense Francis it looking back at the likes of Leo XIII and John XXIII

        teaching.  Church teachings on wealth and poverty (and war and peace) are just as clear as its teachings on abortion and contraception.  

        Sadly, during the last 2 papacies, the pelvic positions came to the forefront while the economic and geopolitical positions fell to the background.  Francis, thankfully, has consciously chosen to change emphases.   The shoe is now on the other foot for the self-described Defenders of the Faith who came to prominence in recent decades.

        Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?
