As a liberal, I can tell you what my FB friends and I did the day of the election of the Pope. When Francis I was brought to the bannister, were charmed by his demeanor and comments. We liked him immediately. Then listened to the commentators first assessment, then our own research, posting link after link and wondering what kind of Pope Francis would be. Which Francis was emulating? We are thrilled that he is compassionate with the Poor, lives in little apartment, rides bus. This part of him is NOT an act. Then his actions, or LACK OF, with dictatorship. A SERIOUS life/death/moral issue. The Vatican instructs to not pay attention to this! Will he model how to reconcile his own actions? Assume "poverty" will be focus, compassion. Okay...
