It's like complaining that water is wet. What do they expect?

A little bit disappointed about his stance on adoption by gay partners. I suppose its hard to separate the two however.

they definitely go hand in hand. I don't imagine any pope in my lifetime being pro-gay in any way, shape, or form. Pope John Paul II did accept evolution, so who knows.

If the Pope get's angry can we all now say "lighten up Francis?"

For what is worth: Out of the 13 candidates the Guardian listed as "papabile", Bergoglio was one of the two they listed as "moderate." The other 11 were "conservative."

I still think that there are "many shades of gray" in the opposition. There is opposition, and then there are statements that earn you public criticism by your own (very Catholic) country's President...

Ladies and Gentlemen, good evening," he said before making a reference to his roots in Latin America, which accounts for about 40 percent of the world's Roman Catholics .
Bergoglio often rode the bus to work, cooked his own meals and regularly visited the slums that ring Argentina's capital. He considers social outreach, rather than doctrinal battles, to be the essential business of the church.
He accused fellow church leaders of hypocrisy and forgetting that Jesus Christ bathed lepers and ate with prostitutes.
"Jesus teaches us another way: Go out. Go out and share your testimony, go out and interact with your brothers, go out and share, go out and ask. Become the Word in body as well as spirit," Bergoglio told Argentina's priests last year.
