Archbishop Chaput’s Right-Wing Funk / National Catholic Reporter

Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia put into words the anxiety many right-wing Catholics must be feeling at the extraordinary popularity Pope Francis has been enjoying. In an interview with John L. Allen Jr., Chaput, speaking on behalf of his conservative followers, said that members of the right wing of the Catholic church ‘generally have not been really happy about his election.’ The pope, Chaput stated, will ‘have to care for them, too.'” Commentary by Charles Reid in National Catholic Reporter

    Churches are supposed to be neutral, or so I thought. The CC is far from neutral, in the Catholic book, liberal means big time sinner!

    Chaput wants the pope to take care of right wing Catholics. I wonder if he would have expressed the same concern for left wing Catholics under the previous two popes. I don’t recall them being overly concerned about liberal Catholics, other than calling them to repent and return to the true (conservative) Church.
