Rick Santorum

What Rick Santorum could learn from Pope Francis

 | 

It's been more than a year now since the white smoke rose and Francis left the fancy cape behind, paid his own hotel bill and became the new pontiff of the poor, preaching simplicity of lifestyle.  

Most commentators have very positive comments on his shift of emphasis and welcoming style. While I agree with that, I'm still waiting for a concrete move that pushes the church toward greater gender equality, i.e., new leadership roles for women.
