Pope Francis fails the litmus test of the Left
The subhead for wild diatribe against Pope Francis on the Salon site gives you a pretty accurate indication of what to expect:
Don't buy his populist rhetoric. The new pope is every bit the sexist homophobe as his predecessors
Anna March is an angry, angry woman. She has just discovered that although the Pope enjoys great popularity, he disagrees with her on a number of subjects that she considers vitally important, such as contraception and abortion and homosexuality and family planning and birth control and condoms and contraception and the Pill and gender and gay marriage and birth control and… did I mention contraception?
And isn’t it terrible that Catholics are so obsessed with issues of sexuality?

Today you know a man by the intensity of hate he "enjoys" from the right (i.e. wrong) quarters. Borrowing a theme the pope also touched on recently, most people see that if they are denounced by the Mafia, for example, it is a badge of honor. The more virulent the rhetoric, in fact, the bigger and shinier the badge.
