Douthat on Francis

In an interview about his new book, the New York Times’ Ross Douthat answers a wide range of questions about the current papacy, observing: “If conservatives are wrong, we are wrong in, I think, an extremely understandable and reasonable way, and Pope Francis might take the edge off present controversies a bit if he extended a touch more understanding, even a touch more mercy, toward those of us who are doubtful that a Church that taught ‘A’ yesterday can reasonably and consistently teach what looks more like ‘B’ tomorrow.
