Pope Redux

It is hard not to say something after issuing praise for the pope for mentioning Dorothy Day during his U.S. visit.

I Wrote:

Pope Francis’s mention of Dorothy Day offers insight about who he is and what the Catholic Church is and whence it has come. 

After hearing about the pope’s secret meeting at the Vatican Embassy in Washington, it seems to me clearly there is a difference between conscientious objection and ignorant prejudice.

That difference goes to the center of the divide in American politics.
