My reading of Pope Francis is that his vision of the world is one of a cosmic battle, with the devil as the great adversary. He speaks of the Devil often.
In addition, the Pope refers often to his aversion to the advent of self-proclaimed families without "the masculinity and femininity of a father and a mother."
He is inflexible in calling abortion an "abominable crime."
What to make of this? Simple. The holy Father is correctly reading the winds of the Catholic Church.
