It just gets worse and worse with this anti-pope.
Here he is with his BFF, Jew Rabbi Abraham Skorka.
The glowing write-up from the Forward reads, in part:
After eight months as head of the world’s 1 billion Roman Catholics (not to mention 10 million Twitter followers), the new pontiff — the first from outside Europe — has made improving relations with the Jewish world a key goal. It wouldn’t be tough to improve on the tone set by his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, who refused all access to the Holocaust archives and fast-tracked sainthood for the controversial Pope Pius XII, who many accuse of staying silent in the face of Hitler’s slaughter.
Francis has wasted no opportunity to denounce anti-Semitism, and plans to visit Israel next year.[…]
It’s a truism to say that Francis has the power to affect how more human beings view the Jewish people than any one else on earth. It’s reason enough to take him at his word — and hold him to it.
