Captain Queeg Pope Francis is getting testy:
VATICAN CITY – Pope Francis has demanded obedience from Vatican ambassadors and reminded them of their duties before him, God and the faithful after years of scandal have tarnished the reputation of the Holy See’s diplomatic corps.
Francis told envoys they may have reservations about papal policy but they don’t represent themselves and can’t “criticize the pope behind his back, have blogs or join groups hostile to him.”
Go here to read the rest. PopeWatch doubts that many Vatican ambassadors have blogs. Perhaps the Pope just tossed in blogs because of the strong criticism receives from blogs. Doubtless Pope Francis does not read the blogs, but many of the men around him probably do, and advise him of the attacks on him.
