Kudos to +Conley

Bishop James Conley took to the pages of National Review Online to defend Pope Francis in the face of attacks from Rush Limbaugh and others. I think +Conley hits the nail on the head when he writes:

Last week, one conservative commentator called Pope Francis’s message “pure Marxism.” He said the pope is “dramatically, embarrassingly, puzzlingly wrong,” and suggested that Pope Francis is ignorant of basic economics and has no business even raising the subject. Why? To ensure that the Holy Father’s message, like Saint Francis’s, won’t be taken seriously. Eight hundred years after his namesake, Pope Francis is reduced to a cartoonish socialist to quiet consciences rankled by exhortation.
