Some years ago, I posted this post, in which I mused on this strange phenomenon that is Pope Francis. Given the events of the last week, I see no reason to take that back. It appears being a Catholic faithful to actual Church teaching is entirely up for grabs. Nice if you do, if you don't, eh. But standing in the way of particular political and socio-economic narratives and policies regarding issues like economic injustice, global warming, immigration reform and racial justice will get the hammer dropped on you every time. Therefore I was right. There is no need to change Church teaching if you've made fealty to Church teaching part of the optional rules for being Catholic.
