Pope Francis’ Political Critics Are Missing Something Fundamental

As this Bloomberg author says, it’s not a political message, it’s a people message.

“But despite all the commentary to the contrary, to see Francis’s visit here through a political prism is to miss not only that he’s going to challenge people across the spectrum. It’s also to miss that he wants to knock down the walls of all kinds that separate people, including the walls between parties that both the Republicans and Democrats have an interest in keeping in place.”
