I'm not a fan of the Catholic Church as an institution. I have a number of bones to pick with it right down to its core mythology. That said, I have a great deal of respect, and even admiration, for the incumbent Pope. To me, Papa Francesco is the real deal. So I shall dispense with the snarky tone I usually adopt for these screeds.

Which is all the more reason I admire the Pope's attempt to divert the emphasis from people's sex lives to their plights, so often miserable. I have the feeling the attempt is not going to bear much fruit for a long time, if ever--it's akin to trying to turn a battle ship on a dime--but you've just got to love him for trying.
