I can admit Catholic roots, though I can also assert I've had no particular loyalties either. This is true, though my assertion would not mean much around here.
Nevertheless, I have my suspicions about Francis and the bow-down-and-out of the conservative Benedict, but I have no knowledge to even begin to assert claims from any authoritative position. Apparently, the doves of Francis who released them got murdered by crows in live time. That could be real or plotted to send a message, no idea. My IQ honestly makes me question things like most others. Curse or benefit? I am not really sure.
Yanno.... it's just kinda weird that a pope starts rambling about climate change and giving the thumbs-up to homosexuality, which unlike pedophilia, is distinctly noted in the bible as a no-go.
Just pointing it out as an observer.
