Has anyone coined the term “Popesplaining” yet? If not, allow me. (If so - well, hey, my server, my rules. Why am I asking for permission, anyway?)
- A politically conservative Roman Catholic justifying the public papal positions that disagree with their political positions and/or established church theology.
- A politically liberal person, typically allergic to anything religious entering the public square, justifying the papal message that coincide with their political views, while failing to recognize his message as a theological one.
(Spoiler alert: I’m not a fan of either one.)
