Pope Says He Doesn’t Fear Possible Schism With U.S. Conservatives

He handles nay-sayers neatly.

“The criticisms aren’t just from Americans, they are a little bit [?] everywhere,” even in the Vatican, the pope said on Tuesday, adding that he welcomes such feedback as long as it is straightforward.

News to many. He usually ignores critics.

“At least those who criticize have the honesty to say it.

Would be good if he would name one.

“I like that. I don’t like it when the criticisms are under the table and they smile and show their teeth and then there is a knife in the back,” he said.’

He likes public criticism? Wow. Holy father!
