I found the first comment funny because of the 'poor you' response, and laughed because Skojec complained of this apparent burden - e.g. to point out everything that is wrong with this papacy. He seems like a nice guy with a good sense of humor, so I wonder if he was joking? To be sure, Skojec doesn't have to write about the stuff he finds wrong with the pope. Although Ferrara claims they have no choice but to do so? Really?
On another post at the Remnant, there's a screen shot of Ferrara apparently laughing with Michael Matt in their video discussion, and if the text is any indication - they appear to be making fun of Pope Francis. I suppose they may have been compelled to do it? No choice in the matter?
Today, and in days to come, many will be commenting on what the Holy Father said to the press on his way back to Rome: "A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not of building bridges, is not a Christian." - Pope Francis gave that answer when asked about Trump, adding, “We must see if he said things in that way and in this I give the benefit of the doubt.”
Nothing wrong with that - the Pope also offers Trump the benefit of the doubt.
In the ensuing discussions which will inevitably take place, please keep in mind how not a few of the Pope's critics accuse him of not even being Catholic - and this from people who claim to be more Catholic than the Pope. I suspect they will condemn the Pope for having answered the question about Trump the way he did.
Happy indeed is the man
who follows not the counsel of the wicked;nor lingers in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the company of scorners ... -Psalm 1
