    I'm making a very narrow point about that one quote. It is shall we say "apocryphal" to the point of being useless.

    I have no problem expecting the worst from any pope, unless and until they actually prove otherwise.

    There is a vast burden of undeniable guilt any pope inherits, from the people (themself always included, so far) who built that guilt by governing the guilty Church from the top. Tacit complicity that could be revoked by even just ordering one concrete change contrary to the orthodoxy that relegates women as foremost among the animals, secondary to men who are the only humans god really cares about.
