Pope Francis Is ‘Too Liberal’ for Her Holiness, Sarah Palin

The Right Wing

Sarah Palin is at it again with another verbal diatribe – but this time it has been directed at Pope Francis, Raw Storyreported.

Last night in an interview with CNN, the former half-term Alaskan governor revealed her religious concerns over the Pope's liberal ideology.

“He’s had some statements that to me sound kind of liberal, has taken me aback, has kind of surprised me,” Palin said.

The out-spoken Republican then proceeded to take a swing at the media saying that she was suspicious of the way it had portrayed the Pope’s message:

“There again, unless I really dig deep into what his messaging is, and do my own homework, I’m not going to just trust what I hear in the media,” the “born again” Christian said.

Pope Francis has come under criticism by many American Catholics for his particularly open-minded comments about a number of social issues, from homosexuality and abortion to contraception.  In one of his first interviews, the Pontiff scolded the Church for being "too obsessed" with certain social issues.

Such statements caused outrage amongst conservative religious followers here in the United States – some even labeling the pontiff as a “self-styled revolutionary” who wants to change the church fundamentally.

It therefore comes as no surprise that Palin, an avid Tea Party movement supporter, whose members have traditionally been opposed to gay marriage and abortion, would be “taken aback” by the Pope’s liberal standpoint.

But, still, really? He's the Pope!
