GOP Disses Pope Francis | National Catholic Reporter

GOP Disses Pope Francis | National Catholic Reporter by MSW.  MGB: Sadly, not a surprise.  One request, though, do not associate DC with Congress.  Washington? Sure, but the local government is what DC is and any dysfunction it does have has nothing to do with Congress (except for the fact that Congress meddles in its affairs rather shamefully.  Luckily, congressional dysfunction prevents them from doing much damage right now.  As for Francis sounding like Obama, not so much since Obama has been the protector of Capitalism and Francis has made no such noises.  If only Obama were more like Francis.
