The Political Page, T+54 -- March 14, 2017

Fraud? I was thinking about this yesterday, but failed to post it. Just too much to post. Now, over at The Week: why conservative Catholics think Pope Francis is a fraud. His recent "decisions" regarding married priests was the tipping point for me. His "decision" was internally inconsistent. It made no sense. Current unmarried priests cannot get married. Married men who want to be priests are welcomed. Regardless of where one stands on the issue, there seems to be "no sense."

His words on "populism" -- a direct attack on President Trump, of course, but again, the Pope seems to have forgotten who the #1 populist was. Googling bears it out.

Holy communion among the faithful who have divorced? Situational ethics. Again, whether it is good, bad, or indifferent, the mainstream, conservative Catholics see it as situational ethics.

Presidential approval slipping: down to 46% from 53% some weeks ago. Apparently Americans liked to see a President in charge, a commander-in-chief. Now he appears to have become part of the establishment, not holding feet of Congress to the fire.

UK: to trigger Brexit today?
