I can like him yet still be critical of him though he has said some really nice things he hasn't really done anything.
Don't be silly, he HAS done something! For one thing he's annoyed the hell out of Sarah Palin.

Also considering the new direction he has sent over a billion Catholics in I would say calling that nothing is kind of silly.
It seems to me that this Pope is a puppet who does not have the power of the previous ones.
But no, he wants to appear more Robin Hood-like. More socialist-like! He wants to appear like he's different...a new hope, a new pope with a new direction! Only problem is the direction...Socialism!
You guys are really working some overtime these days - aren't you?
Pope Francis is TIME Magazine's Person of the Year for doing nothing at all
Well it seems the Pope has taken one positive step and has released Cardinal Raymond Burke, former Archbishop of St. Louis in the United States.
Burke has been very vocal against abortion rights and same-sex marriage and Pope Francis has decided this message does not fit into his Vatican office.
According to TPM:
"He has also been publicly critical of Francis's changes in the direction of the church. Burke retains his position as the head of the Vatican high court, the Apostolic Signatura.
This is the type of meaningful action the secular world is looking for and hopefully more of the same will come from this Pope. Though retaining his high court status means those keeping a watchful and skeptical eye will continue to do so.

WOW I didn't know we judge relevance of information based on its circulation.
Next thing you will tell me is that truthfulness of media is based on ratings.
