San Franciso Catholics want Pope Francis to be less Catholic

by | 18th, April 2015

Is there any chance that the Pope can be  atad less, you know, Catholic?

In an unprecedented move, more than 100 Catholic leaders in San Francisco have called on Pope Francis to remove the city’s archbishop over his “intolerant” views on abortion and gay marriage.

Several heads of Catholic schools, church volunteers and former board members of Catholic charities have sent an open letter to the local paper addressed to the Holy See, asking that it replace Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone with someone who shares their progressive ideas.

The open letter stated that the Archdiocese of San Francisco is threatened by Cordileone’s “single-issue agenda and cannot survive, let alone thrive and grow under his supervision” and that San Francisco deserves a leader focused on service and diversity.

If only there were other religions tmore tolerant on abortion…
