The Political Pope: How Pope Francis Is Delighting the Liberal Left and Abandoning Conservatives

The untold story of the left's efforts to politicize the Vatican and the battle to stop it-before the Catholic Church as we know it is destroyed. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Geneva} Pope Francis is the most liberal pope in the history of the Catholic Church. He is not only championing the causes of the global Left, but also undermining centuries-old Catholic teaching and practice. In the words of the late radical Tom Hayden, his election was "more miraculous, if you will, than the rise of Barack Obama in 2008." But to Catholics in the pews, his pontificate is a source of alienation. It is a pontificate, at times, beyond parody: Francis is the first pope to approve of adultery, flirt with proposals to bless gay marriages and cohabitation, tell atheists not to convert, tell Catholics to not breed "like rabbits," praise the Koran, support a secularized Europe, and celebrate Martin Luther. At a time of widespread moral relativism, Pope Francis is not defending the Church's teachings but diluting them. At a time of Christian persecution, he is not strengthening Catholic identity but weakening it. Where other popes sought to save souls, he prefers to "save the planet" and play politics, from habitual capitalism-bashing to his support for open borders and pacifism. In THE POLITICAL POPE, George Neumayr gives readers what the media won't: a bracing look at the liberal revolution that Pope Francis is advancing in the Church. To the radical academic Cornel West, "Pope Francis is a gift from heaven." To many conservative Catholics, he is the worst pope in centuries.

The Francis Feud: Why and How Conservative Catholics Squabble about Pope Francis

“Make a mess!” Pope Francis urged Catholics. But has he ended up making one himself? This has been the most controversial pontificate in memory. Catholics are taking sides, for and against the pope and each other. Some Catholics like everything Pope Francis says and does. Others think he’s tearing the Church apart. Some say he’s a breath of fresh air. Others say he’s sowing confusion in the ranks.In recent months three best-selling books have appeared criticizing Francis. Are their criticisms warranted, or do they go too far? How are faithful Catholics to understand this pontificate, and what limits, if any, should there be on criticizing a reigning pope?Popular author and apologist Karl Keating examines the claims and counter-claims made by prominent Catholics who have a high opinion of the papacy but—many of them—not a high opinion of its current occupant.
