I’ve been a devout Catholic my entire life. But I’m no fan whatsoever of the current Pope, who has never passed up a liberal photo opportunity.

So I concur wholeheartedly with today’s read from Robert Laurie,  a Michigan-based columnist. Here’s our customary brief excerpt:

Like many lifelong Catholics, I recently hit the boiling point with regards to our current Pontiff. Pope Francis never misses an opportunity to, in the harshest of terms, condemn capitalism, the demonstrable successes of western nations, and the virtues of individual liberty. At the same time, he has a nasty habit of praising some of the planet’s worst systems and nations.

In the span of a few decades, we went from a Pope who teamed with Reagan to defeat the Soviet Union, to a Pope who embraces the classist financial rhetoric of our old enemies. This, of course, has made him a darling of the normally religion-averse left who’ve abandoned decades of Catholic mockery in order to portray Francis as a font of economic, environmental, and geo-political wisdom.
