Pope Francis

I am told by my Catholic relatives that this pontiff is not liked very much by some of the more "conservative" members of the church.

If Pope Francis keeps writing the kinds of things he's been writing about the global financial system and capitalism, keeps calling the fat cat RC bishops/cardinals out for spending millions of euros on their palaces, I wonder how long it will be until he comes down with some mysterious ailment that ends his papacy a la John Paul I or just has some kind of accident in that Ford Focus he drives around in.

This was a pretty strong critique he launched at the markets and the free marketeers.

The cynic in me says that sort of thing will not be allowed to stand for long - they'll either convince him to moderate his tone or we'll be looking for white smoke in the sky again real soon.

  1. I'm afraid that I have to agree with you on the Pope's possible fate. But I'm still glad he said what he said about wealth and poverty.

  2. Sort of what I was thinking could of/did happen to Kennedy if he pulled out of Vietnam and cut into the military-industrial complex.
