If ever there was a moment when the Catholic church reflects the business model of the entire Christian religion, it is now.
The Church is about what people think it is about. What ordinary people talk about and their impressions of right and wrong are what the church actually stands for. This may be different from Church documents, but those in the pews pay the bills.
Pope Francis is trying to right a listing ship. People have been talking only about gays and abortion for so long they do not know their church teaches about other things.
The link explains the Catholic Church actually has been preoccupied with social justice for a long time. The previous Popes talked about it, just as Pope Francis is doing.
Pope Benedict had the personality of a judgemental moralist, and the media characterized him as a judgementalist on abortion and gays. Pope Francis, on the other hand, has a different personality and a different picture is being painted of him.
This new picture disturbs many prominent Catholics. They like the picture of a Pope who is bashing gays and abortion but not talking about social justice.
Larry Kudlo, a devout Catholic who has a business commentary show on cable TV, is appalled this Pope brings up any topic that falls under economics. Abortion and gays are the only appropriate topics.
The social justice cat has escaped from the Catholic bag before, only to be put back by those who feel threatened by it.
