“Is the Pope Catholic?”

That rhetorical quietus—argument-closer—may no longer have the certitude of a resounding “Yes”.

When we look at the events and sermons in which Francis has participated or enunciated, the usual “Yes” seems to lack the force it once had.

By scanning through the disturbing posts here, readers can decide for themselves, but my answer has become a weak  “May be” or “We shall have to wait and see”.
