I'm still not sure who it was, but some lady was on Jake Tapper the other day complaining that the Pope might be drinking too much 'compassionate-Jesus' Kool-Aid.
Whoever she was, I suspect she won't be too pleased when she gets wind of his latest commie-liberal move:
Ruh-Roh! (Hasn't anyone told the Pope that Jesus' father will haz a sad if we don't go all "Drill, baby, drill!" and exploit all the gifts he's given us?)
See the evidence below.

To be fair, His Holiness doesn't look all that excited about holding up those shirts. It looks more like he's just doing whatever he can to get those people to leave him alone. That said, I don't think they would've gotten within ten feet of the Vatican walls under the previous Pope, so there's that.
7:20 AM PT: Apologies to Katey Sagal!
8:24 AM PT: Seems like someone has some regrets:
"Just to clarify my comment to Jake Tapper about Pope Francis, it was not my intention to be critical of Pope Francis. I was reminding viewers that we need to do our own homework on news subjects, and I hadn't done mine yet on the Pope's recent comments as reported by the media. Knowing full well how often the media mischaracterizes a person’s comments (especially a religious leader’s), I don’t trust them to get it right when it comes to reporting on the Vatican. I do, however, trust my many Catholic friends and family, including some excellent Catholic writers, who have since assured me that Pope Francis is as sincere and faithful a shepherd of his church as his two predecessors whom I admired. I apologize for not being clearer in my response, thus opening the door to critical media that does what it does best in ginning up controversy.

Nice try, but:
"he's had some statements that to me sounded kind of liberal, has taken me aback, has kind of surprised me",,,
that's you talking, not the 'media.'
