Can you think of anyone when Pope is calling right-wing, fundamentalist Christianity an "illness." Does the name "Pat" Robertson ring a bell?
If there is one thing that differentiate the new Pop from his predecessors is the way he preaches his message.His focus is fighting for economic equality. Pope Francis has shifted the focus of the Catholic Church to issues facing the poor and the sick, and away from anti-gay and anti-abortion that have dominated the Catholic religion
Like many other thing, Pope Francis does not seem to be impressed about Christian fundamentalism.
In a recent statement he actually called right-wing Christian fundamentalism a sickness. He further stated "Such ideological extremism is dangerous, not only to Christianity, but to the world"
