What? A papal tweet without a furor?!

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | May 01, 2014

The Pope’s Twitter message for today is:

I ask everyone with political responsibility to remember two things: human dignity and the common good.

Thus far I haven’t seen anyone, on the Catholic right or left, claiming that this is a radical departure from traditional Church teaching. But it’s still early in the day.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    I can't see anything wrong with it. Doesn't the Church traditionally uphold human dignity and common good?
