Culture wars victories, Catholic reform, a glimpse of Jesus -- three things we look for when we look at Pope Francis.

    “Glimpses of Jesus” from Francis? Give us a break !! A glimpse shows a long dead preacher/peasant/carpenter a-mouldering in the ground outside of Jerusalem. Said glimpse at reality vitiates Christianity and Francis’ new wave of error-filled popularity.

    I’m Mormon Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and some things we agree on a lot with the pope, for example when he defends family, marriage between a man and a woman to have children and form a family.
