    Cardinal Raymond Burke, the former St. Louis archbishop and leading voice for conservative Catholics, said the church "is like a ship without a rudder" under Francis.

    I'm surprised it took them this long to go on the record about it.

    That is so Salty, but you could count several more of the recent popes in that....

    Don't most Catholics see bishops as administrators ....I know I did. The station of pope has more influence on pew sitters and that's why the bishops are grousing....they consider Francis a maverick and an upstarted.

    About one year ago the Pope published an encyclical that covered many topics, including the excesses of capitalism.

    It is very long, but if you go to Paragraphs 53-56 you will get a good sampling of it.
