Thanks to the liberal press trying to make Francis into something he's not. He's playing them like Assad/Putin and Iran played Obama.

Time is a liberal rag which hopes some of the less conservative views expressed by the Pope(such as disdain for capitalism) move Catholics to Time's socialist views. It ain't going to happen.

The selection of Pope Francis (albeit not a bad one) takes the pressure off Time magazine to select Putin, currently the acknowledged world leader, and further embarrass our weak President.

How can this be? Russ Limberger said he is a bad guy! Seriously...do politics have to every discussion? I am not a Catholic but believe this man has his heart in the right place and is a breath of fresh air and wants good for people. TIME picks someone having impact...he has impact.

We get it, the pope isn't going to make any major changes to their long held beliefs. It's still a breath of fresh air that he's focusing his priorities on the real issues.

"The selection of Pope Francis (albeit not a bad one) takes the pressure off Time magazine to select Putin, currently the acknowledged world leader, and further embarrass our weak President."--------Putin is currently the acknowledged world leader? Says who?

Check out this moving video which captures the moment when the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist first learn of the new pope. Absolutely beautiful! http://allhands-ondeck.blogspot.com/2013/03/dominican-sisters-celebrate-new-pope.html
