    I did some checking up on this.

    Yes, there are some meetings with liberal factions. Some.

    But there are many many more meetings with conservative factions. And many large liberal factions that are left out completely.

    Now, how much of that is the Pope? How much of it is conservative factions within the Vatican manipulating his schedule? We can't know that for sure. But what we do know is that his ear is getting bent primarily by conservative factions; and that will almost assuredly lead to conservative-leaning policy.

    This is a common conservative tactic: if you can't control the election, surround the elected with whisperers, isolate them, don't let them hear the people.
