George Neumayr thinks Pope Francis is all too real, and he doesn’t like it. He writes in Spectator:
While some of the media’s claims about Francis are excessive, at least one is dismayingly real…: that Francis is more liberal than his predecessors. Indeed, not a week passes without some new papal statement or action to puzzle conservatives and embolden liberals.
You have to understand that Neumayr has an axe to grind. As a critic of Pope Francis, he is out to emphasize the discontinuity between Benedict XVI and Francis, to the disparagement of the latter. And the way these things work, what is bad news for Neumayr is good news for many people – including, no doubt, some Pray Tell readers.
