Pope Francis: Loves women, at war with GOP

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (MarketWatch) — Pope Francis is showing more and more signs of being a real game changer, aggressive, fast-moving.
He’s giving women a bigger voice in an aging papal hierarchy where old men have ruled for centuries. No more. Remember, even before Francis’s manifesto was posted last Thanksgiving, a New York Times headline read, “Conservative U.S. Catholics feel left out of pope’s embrace.”


‘Not to share one’s wealth with the poor is to steal from them.’
Pope Francis
There’s a new leader running the Catholic Church, a radical reformer moving fast, hinting at the liberalization of outdated rules on women’s rights. And, yes, this is bound to have a huge, though indirect, impact on women’s rights in America and women in all areas. 

Yes, the Pope is giving women new power. And he’s doing it at a time when conservative American politicians are not only actively trying to put women back in their place with health care and reproductive rights, but also disenfranchising everyone who doesn’t fit the elite image of their threatened old-men rulership. So you know they must wish they could impeach this radical progressive leader. Are furious. Trapped. Can’t do anything — popes have dictatorial powers from on high. 

The new pope is changing the rules of the game, not just for his 1.2 billion faithful in the Catholic Church but across politics worldwide. And it will have a ripple effect on American and global economics. Because he is a radical reformer, clearly hell-bent on charging ahead. New rules. New resentments for conservatives.
