... of the Used, Abused, and Utterly Screwed Up.

A Secular Franciscan looks at the world... with a more jaundiced eye than ever... and lots of ellipses for you to fill in the missing text...

Alas, he has a point.


The Problem with Pope Francis…

It's not a problem with Pope Francis, as he takes pains to point out. The problem lies in those who interpret his words and behaviour. Fr. Dwight is fairly traditional in his Catholic theology (though this is a bit of a generality and not quite fair to the man), and in this case I believe that he's quite correct in thinking that all a lot of folks will focus on is the social gospel in his statements and ignore anything of the rest of the Gospel. His fourth paragraph sets it out quite well...
