Subject: RE: BS: Catholic religion response to 'today'
I don't think you can separate the Pope's "conservative" views from his embracing of an authoritarian regime. They are "status quo" as was the Argentine regime at the time of his sojourn there.

Dictators flourish under authoritarian views whether they are Catholic or not.

Again, you can't paint all Catholics with the same brush, as well as devotees of other religions.

But the basic problem with religion is that it causes war.
