    I totally enjoy Betty Clermont's diaries on the new pope too. I really wish more readers on Daily Kos would visit her essays on Francis as the major media seems to think he's some kind of fresh air, when he is really nothing more than human lipstick being applied to a piggish institution.

    I am thinking that the romance between Protestant and Catholic dominionists may stop at the border, as Francis is currently in Brazil trying to woo former catholics who went over to the protestant evangelical side back into the fold.  In fact, since US evangelicals have put a lot of stock and cash into planting churches in latin america, it could be that the bad feelings from the pope's little Brazilian jaunt may cool off the hand holding here.

      apt.  You may be right about cooperation stopping at the borders, w/re Latin America, however, it seems to me that both sides (catholics and dominionists/radical reich) agree and work together on their political/power/money side and perhaps give each other space to follow their other interests separately.
