GOP writes Pope's agenda: Pope ignores GOP

Or at least I hope he does. The pack of nasty old hypocrites is at it again. Their basic message is this. The Pope should tell them what they want to hear about moral issues (aka about sex). The Pope should not tell them what they do not want to hear about worldly issues that they think are not about morals (aka not about sex). In the latter group are things like ministering to the needy, healing the sick, preserving and protecting our planetary dominion. Those are not moral issues and hence outside the purview of the Pope. Hence our own AZ Congressman Paul Gosar boycotting the Pope's address to Congress.

... The far-right congressman said it’d be fine if the religious leader addressed moral issues Gosar cares about, but since Francis is likely to reference moral issues the pope cares about, the Arizona Republican isn’t interested.

"When the Pope chooses to act and talk like a leftist politician, then he can expect to be treated like one," the congressman wrote.

Gosar is a small man not big enough in intellect to listen to a big man who happens to be the leader of his church. I guess Gosar suffers from an infectious disease called moral myopia.
