U.S.: Conservative Catholics not convinced by Bergoglio's approach - Vatican Insider

This is a strange story. The source article speaks about 'traditionalist' and 'conservative' Catholics being upset with Pope Francis but fails to provide any evidence to support the claim. The only named reference is a Robert Royal from a conservative Washington think-tank. One person being annoyed hardly qualifies as being representative of an entire wing of the Church!

Yet, that original article from the Washington Post is popping up all over the internet as 'evidence' of a 'split' caused by the Pope's style of address despite failing to offer anything beyond the opinion of its authors to justify its conclusions. (sigh) Such is life in this internet age... and proof positive that it is important for Church members to speak truth in the face of such nonsense.

  1. It's more than just one article. And I suspect there will be more if this Pope continues his current approach.

    On the other hand I had a friend, a Protestant, the other day say "I like this pope". I debated whether or not telling her he's still against women's ordination and recently excommunicated a priest in part because he advocated that.
