When he chose to name himself after St. Franciscus, one of the most open minded figures in the history of the Catholic church, I wondered how far he is willing to stand out. This is one of many examples, that shows that it is pretty far. source: http://www.cnn.com/2015/04/12/europe/pope-francis-turkey-armenia-genocide-reference/
It's sad that a Pope that's willing to speak his mind, and to speak more freely about the truths of what's happening in the world is considered a radical one. The Catholic diocese needs a reform overall.
@orenshani7 He has, by far, been one of the most radical popes ever... His speech condemning the corruption of the Catholic church, to me, was one of the greatest things I have ever seen. A leader that is willing to admit just how wrong his own faction is..
@Goyo Which is sadly why he announced he's thought of retiring. The people in the Church must be so against him, but as a Catholic myself I can say I am proud of our Pope. In terms of the word used, the killings under the Ottoman Empire were nothing short of a genocide. Any historian can back that statement.
