    Funny, I haven’t noticed a lot of love for everyone from Christ followers.

    I am new to RNS. I cannot recall reading the newsletter when the catholic pope is not the central newsmaker. Is RNS a catholic organization that must report what is going on with the pope?

  • Kevin Eckstrom

    Stan: Thanks for your comment. No, we are not a Catholic organization, and in fact we are not affiliated with or controlled by any religious group. That said, Pope Francis has been a huge newsmaker since his election and he keeps giving us things to write about. Thanks,
