“Under Pope Francis, the church has abandoned many of its bedrock positions on issues like divorce and homosexuality in favor of a "why not?" attitude. Francis has scolded people for being rich, sided with illegal immigrants, and suggested the church should be a refuge for the poor”–John Moody, Fox News VP

Indeed, and he's providing us with a few pleasant surprises by being actually Christian in his scolding. Too bad he's not bucking all of the Church's less sensible traditions and viewpoints.

He's old... plus, gender is important, there's a lot of energy tied to it. I'm not sure that I could grow up in the 30s and 40s, and develop the mental flexibility to have better understanding.

(NB: Not excusing him or saying it's *okay*. Merely noting that "yeah, that's a flaw, but I see that flaw too close to myself to condemn *him* rather than the flaw. Um. And "condemn" is a pretty strong term too, maybe not the right term for this context.)
