Cal Thomas: Pope Francis Should Be Shamed Into Retirement


Conservative columnist Cal Thomas implies that Catholics should shame Pope Francis into resigning.

Pope Francis recently said climate change and nuclear war are the greatest threats to the world. The greatest threats to the Catholic Church are the sexual abuse of children and the church’s failure to adequately address that abuse and hold those responsible accountable.

Some of Pope Francis’ critics suggest he resign. Though, according to canon law, no pope can be forced out, perhaps he can be sufficiently shamed for his unwillingness to cleanse the church of the filth that has stained it.
