Pope Francis a bully? Surely not…

Re: “From a distance, all pulpit bullies look the same”, Have Your Say, February 7.



Once again “A Bangkok Atheist” has gone on an anti-Catholic tirade, comparing Pope Francis to President Donald Trump of the United States. So, I think the writer should change his name to an “Anti-Catholic from Bangkok”.   

Further, I ask that the editors use more discretion when headlining a letter, as even though I am sure that it was not intended, the title of the letter makes it seem as if Pope Francis is a bully!   

Pope Francis is hardly a bully, as all observers have been impressed by how faithfully he has kept his vows of poverty and chastity during his pontificate. No pope in the long history of the Catholic Church has more closely followed the example of St Francis of Assisi than has this Argentinian.
