Like other disenfranchised Catholics, I hope and believe Pope Francis will open the window and let some fresh air in. If his bishops and cardinals close it behind him, his oft quoted words, "Who am I to judge?" will ring hollow. The Catholic Church has been judging people for centuries, deciding who gets to go to heaven and who gets to go to hell. My wife, a convert to Catholicism came out of the confessional crying because the priest told her she was going to hell and taking me with her. Too bad she has to go to hell now because if she had remained Protestant, she could still be going to heaven. My dad was right when he said there aren't many Catholics in heaven because we have too many rules we can break.
