10 Quotes That Prove The Pope Is A Liberal

The press has been telling us that Pope Francis, in word and deed, is no less than the total renunciation of Pope Benedict's papacy.

Just this weekend, there have been a flurry of articles praising the Pope for his statements on women and homosexuality and a host of other hot button issues and contrasting him with his doctrinaire and unpastoral predecessor.

Pope Francis' papacy is changing everything about the Church and his comments are a direct affront to traditional Catholics everywhere. The Washington Post put it this way.

"Something unexpected and extraordinary is happening in the Catholic Church. Pope Francis is rescuing the faith from those who hunker down in gilded cathedrals and wield doctrine like a sword. The edifice of fortress Catholicism – in which progressive Catholics, gay Catholics, Catholic women and others who love the church but often feel marginalized by the hierarchy – is starting to crumble."
Now, as much as many of us traditional minded churchgoers have tried to spin it as in continuity with Pope Benedict, I think it is time we face facts. The press is right. The Pope is a liberal and I have the quotes to prove it!

Please read all the quotes at the Register.

I like the bit about "gilded cathedrals." I want to see one of those someday -- do I need to bring dark glasses? Or would dark glasses block my view of albino monks skulking about?

Methinks akg didn't read all the way through, which makes the smarminess all the more endearing.

Well played.
There is a good comment toward the bottom that compares the media with televangelists. The cherry picking of scripture verses or in the case of media, Pope quotes, to prove some completely unrelated point or support an agenda that the quote had no intention of doing. Context and background are very important as comments in isolation can mean anything.
