Pope Francis’ non-response this weekend [regarding the Viganò letter] is especially frustrating, considering his penchant for sloppily expressed public positions that routinely lead to misleading and poorly informed news cycles. When it comes to climate change, immigration reform, priestly celibacy, same-sex marriage, weapons manufacturers, etc., Francis is often willing to rush in, as critics might put it, without too much circumspection.
In fact, in the very same press conference this weekend where he refused to comment on the Vigano letter, Francis was quick to answer a question about what parents should do should they learn their child is gay.
