Any former/current Catholics here? I have long stopped practicing, but was raised in the Church and went to 13 years of Catholic school.
This New Pope who is SUPPOSEDLY a Jesuit is an insult to every Jesuit I've ever known. He's not active in social justice causes and instead (like our old Popey Eggs Benedict) likes to tout the benefits of "spirituality" and "personal scholarship." (Also he's: anti gay, anti woman, anti abortion, anti gay adoption...)
The Church is really digging it's own grave picking these old dudes who like to lock themselves up in a room to read and not get out into the community and get their hands dirty.
