I’ve never quite understood why many of my fellow secularists fawn over Pope Francis. There seems to be an unexplainable consensus that this Pope is some sort of uber-liberal who’ll spearhead an era of progressiveness within the Catholic Church.
He is no such thing. His public rhetoric may be more palatable, but the edicts and dogma remain the same. This is simply a new era of savvy public relations, rather than anything of actual substance.
This is evidenced in the Pope’s reported sit-down time with Kim Davis recently.
This week on Taking The Myth, Stephen Knight and A Scotsman Abroad discuss the big topics with guest callers. Topics include: The UK’s latest ‘Islamophobia’ stats, The Independent Newspapers’ misleading article on anti-Muslim hate, the arrest of Kim Davis, the refugee crisis, Muslim flight attendants and our first ever ‘ASLAN Award’.
