Francis. Typical modern-day Jesuit. Lots of 'sound bites,' little substance and even less knowledge and understanding of sin and it's devastation on the soul. As Russia's Putin once remarked, referring to Francis,"He is not a man of God."
It appears that our Pope is reprimanding countries like the US for the death penalty, where the death penalty is being less and less used, while cozying up to places like China and parts of the Middle East, where the death penalty is regularly invoked, but without reprimand.
