Best Pope Ever?

My family is Roman Catholic and (used to) attended mass at the Santa Rosa Mission off of Grant and i-10. The Priest never really talked about gay marriage or abortions, but he always preached against alcoholism and infidelity. It's not really safe, but drive around "OP" during the Fariseos and see why these are topics of discussion. My family is mostly comprised of bigots, continue to have more kids they can't afford, and proudly claim they are religious people and believe they are going to heaven. My cousins and family members my age aren't as racist as our elders, but I'm much more hopeful for their kids.

Hopefully Pope Francis' words in today's New York Times interview helps inspire a better crop of open-minded devout catholics for the future. Pope Frankie should take a trip to Washington and perform an exorcism and vanquish the gay hating, anti-women's rights demons and this banal mindset.
