I have been saying that the Left will turn on Pope Francis. You can already see cracks in liberal unity appearing. The catholic Left is splitting. Just start reading carefully at Fishwrap.
I was sent this cartoon by Matt Bors. I haven’t heard of him before, but his Wiki entry (FWIW) says: “His work has since appeared in The Los Angeles Times, The Nation, Village Voice, The Daily Beast, and on Daily Kos.” I’m not thinking that he leans to the traditional or conservative side of things. Maybe some of you can educate me.
Still, you can see what is starting to happen as the libs wake up to the fact that no matter what Pope Francis does in certain other spheres he is not going to change the Church’s doctrine concerning faith and morals. Their Pope Fluffy, the most wonderfullest Pope eh-vurrrr, is not going to say that it is okay for two-people of the same sex to have sexual relations or marry. He is not going to change the Church’s teaching, as if it were mere “policy”, and ordain women. Not. Going. To. Happen.
And as this realization breaks over them like the dawn, they will turn on him.
So, TIME names Francis Person of the Year. Immediately after, the Pope brings the axe down on any hope of women’s ordination. Then…
