Pope Francis: A Shift in Tone, But Not in Doctrine September 11, 2015
As we prepare for Pope Francis' visit to the United States on September 22nd, we explore some of his statements and decisions that have shifted the Church's tone on gay marriage, divorce, and abortion. But will this lead to changes in official doctrine? And our favorite religion pollster paints a portrait of the 50 million Catholics who make up Francis' American flock.
