message 2: by Naomi V (new)

Naomi V (naomi_v) | 432 comments The pope has been making many comments lately that progressives can agree with, including (or maybe especially) this one about capitalism and the widening gap between rich and poor. That's all well and good, but these positive things must become doctrine; otherwise they're just words that make people feel better. And he still says that abortion is a sin and that women can't be priests, so not everything this pope believes is that forward-thinking.
