Why do I have the feeling that American Dioceses will try to revolt and form a splinter group and separate themselves from the Bishop of Rome.

Are we really at a point where people have to give a pope praise for not being a dork?

Considering that Catholics in the US are complaining he's too socialist and liberal? Yes.

* added

Considering the fact that there are 78.2 million[1] Catholics in the US I would be very surprised if you COULDN'T find some Catholics who thought Francis (Benedict XVI, John Paul I/II ... Peter) is/was too socialist/liberal/conservative/capitalist/communist/democratic/republican...insert random character trait...

Francis is popular in the non catholic media ATM, Francis bashing is going to be good controversy and the fact that the catholics don't want to 'move with the times' plays into a lot of established stereotypes. Stick a bit of America bashing in there and this is guaranteed to get some play.

However the percentage of Catholics that actually go off an create a new church or join a different one because they don't like the Pope is and has been quite low... otherwise there wouldn't be over a billion of us left.

I remember hearing in a recent statement that he said he "Isn't marxist, but isn't offended at the title" or something along those lines.

I honestly haven't heard anything but praise for the guy, however.

He said he isn't a marxist, but because he has quite a few good friends that are marxist he isn't offended by that label.

I'm not catholic, nor even Christian, but I like Francis, a lot.
I also liked JP2 - Benedict, I didn't really hear so much from, but what I heard he wasn't a pope I would like to see at the helm - Francis seems to focus more on the "christian message" (boiling it down "God is good") rather than the old testamental message that too many vocal christians keep spouting.
(Having been taught in both sunday school and secularly about christianity and religion, I don't get teh old testamental christians, they seem to have not understood, at all, what Jesus (supposedly*) did by dying on the cross.



* Only adding supposedly because he only did it if you believe so, if you don't then he obviously didn't.

So, you agree with Rush?... :lol:

The New Testament, followed to it's truest values, would make today's bleeding heart liberal side look like the Tea Party.

But really, if you look at his statements, they might smell of what we think is Marixism, but it's not, because the mechanisms to achieve it would be very very different.

Agreed.

Caring for the poor and condemning greed does not a Marxist make.
