When Pope Francis is clear, he is very clear

Oh, the beauty of it! Whatever the ambiguities of his frequent "off-the-record" remarks and the confusion they have evoked in the media, there is no doubt that the strong suit of Pope Francis may be in his clear preaching concerning the traditional doctrines about Satan. Woe to the enlighten progressives who thought they had consigned such "medieval" doctrines to the dustbins of history! Granted, part of the entertainment value of this sort of preaching by His Holiness is the way it curdles the blood of the "enlightened" drive-by media.
