This article in today's Washington Post included a few examples of why conservatives are so disappointed in the pontiff. I was particularly amused by this example:
His first encyclical — often considered a guide to the direction a pope intends to take — was a gentle reflection on "God Is Love."How disappointing that a religious leader would talk about God's love. No, we wouldn't want to hear that.
Perhaps an encyclical entitled "God Is a Fire-Breathing Dragon Who Will Torment Queers and Women Who Have Abortions" was more what conservatives were hoping for.
