I go to church to save my soul,” Varney said.

He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice,

Micah 6:8

“Why do you call Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?" Luke 6:46

All the pope has to do is get out the S word. If he starts calling people sinners, get your popcorn cause the free marketeers are gonna go bananas.

Benedict started all of this with his hat trick ... curving the ball around the heads of anti-Semitic UK still affixed on the Falklands rubbish... ditto for Argentina.

Benedict defrocked the Scottish cardinal who would have led a contingent inside Vatican against an Argentine pope vote.

With that cleared up, it was goal-issimo for Benedict and Bergoglio became Francis.

Germany continued to threaten the world with their Greek "crisis" ... for the pipeline in Syria.

Russia even wants the pipeline in Syria given Putin's move.

Merkel is going to get her pipeline from Qatar to Europe.

Francis did not alter traditional teaching as much as connect personal responsibility with individual behavior under conventions and institutions, implying that "everyone does it" is a childish excuse. Previously, the teaching had been more in terms of abstractions, allowing most people to shrug it off as "just the way it is and who am I to buck the tide."
