Great article. The Pope obviously believes in the spiritual message of Christ, but many of his emphasis lies in the social. This is not contrary to Christian doctrine, but something if divorced from spiritual doctrine becomes useless. I do not feel the Pope is pushing a social agenda void of spiritual life of Christ and morality that Christ teaches, but he definitely needs to emphasize it more. Regardless if he believes it, when one emphasizes only social issues then the other message can be loss and this is critical for him not to forget.
Issues surrounding morality and the stopping of abortion should be more central or at least proportionately represented by the pontiff in his speeches
