Both men came from an era and place where nursing was still the way to feed an infant. IMHO they'd likely seen women nursing babies when they were children so I doubt it would be a big deal. Most mothers cover themselves in public with blanket too. Not a problem until you're infant learns how to grasp and pull.

Your own bias is causing you to think the worst. There's nothing whatsoever to think either pope would act in that manner.

This article was fascinating. This is textbook change management.

Jesuit spies - LOL. The rest of the church finds it difficult to not use Jesuit and spy in the same sentence. As if the curia has not been riddled with conservative spies for centuries.

I find it interesting that recent former popes have encouraged the curia and local bishops to court political influence in Italy. All the while they were demanding Central and South American church leaders not speak out on political issues (save, of course abortion and birth control).
I like this guy. I like people who have the skills to shake up the old order. Jesus did that, you know?

Oh - and all of this is just my informed opinion and everyone is welcome to theirs as well.
