POPE Francis sermon, Rome, 9/25, speaking of someone who turns blind eye to poverty etc.:

“This is a sin,” he said. Also: “Be disturbed” when you see poverty etc.

This sermonizing is not a sin, but neither is it a message of mercy to the benighted who turn blind eye and are not disturbed at poverty etc.

Nor is it a stirring call to service in the spirit of Francis’ order’s founder. Rather, it is a hard-nosed, even bullying tactic out of sync with his smiling, friendly exterior.

 He says this kind of thing a lot.
