Is the Pope Catholic?

At this point, it's hard to tell:

Pope Francis wants concrete action to combat the “emergency” of plastics littering seas and oceans. Francis made the appeal in a message Saturday to galvanize Christians and others to work to save what he hails as the “marvelous,” God-given gift of the “great waters and all they contain.” He said efforts to fight plastics litter must be waged “as if everything depended on us.”

The pope also denounced as “unacceptable” the privatization of water resources at the expense of the “human right to have access to this good.” Environmental protection is a priority of his papacy.

Francis urged politicians to apply “farsighted responsibility” and generosity in dealing with climate change, as well migration policies including about those who “risk their lives at sea in search of a better future.”

Nice job of working "refugees" and "migrants" into the remarks as well. Seriously, given the enormous crisis of faith the Catholic laity is currently experiencing, is this really what's on the Pope's mind?

Come back, Benedict, your Church needs you.

Ask yourself, for the situations that the Pope brings up... what do you think Jesus would do?

I speculate it would be similar to what the Pope is saying.

Remember, God isn't an American. Neither is Jesus. They aren't capitalists either.

Many Christians seem to forget the teachings of greed, and how to treat those in need.

No, he's not Catholic. There has been discussion as to whether or not he's the anti-Christ with good reason.

Stopping pollution and child rape are not mutually exclusive.
That said this pope is a scumbag. I knew it once I saw the media glorifying him after he was promoted. That prompted me to do a little research. His closet is full of skeletons.
