- Has Pope Francis Failed?. The short answer is 'yes'. This op-ed was written by the conservative editor of First Things, and I think the perception is that only conservatives are disappointed in Pope Francis, as they fear his reforming. But that's not true. Liberal Catholics like me are also disappointed in him because he actually has *not* made any real reforms on the issues we care about, like sex abuse, contraception, marriage equality, allowing priests to marry, allowing women to be priests, etc. Some people believe too that the pope wants to make these reforms but that the curia won't let him. Also untrue ... at many times and in many venues, the pope has expressed his antipathy for contraception, gay people marrying, women being priests ... the pope is a dyed in the wool social conservative and that's pretty disappointing.
