The Far Middle Podcast #10: THE POPE

Pope Francis is the focus of the 10th episode of The Far Middle. Nick asserts that the Catholic Church has fundamentally evolved under Pope Francis’ leadership. Nick explains that his excitement and pride of being a Catholic when Pope Francis was elected in 2013 has since done a complete 180. “Today, I’ve got a much darker view of Pope Francis because we’ve had over seven years of a record…the actions that you see are quite troubling,” says Nick. “Pope Francis has not been leading and paying attention to the stuff that matters and to the stuff that is subject-matter relevant to the Pope; he’s instead shifted his attention and dragged the Church into arenas and areas and subjects where no expertise exists and that do not have to do with faith, morals, or ethics tied to the Catholic faith.”
