...as the old boss.
From an article in the Los Angeles Times, "Pope Francis Reaffirms Crackdown on U.S. Nuns" (my emphasis):
Pope Francis has backed the Vatican's
doctrinal crackdown on a major group of American nuns, reasserting the
Roman Catholic Church's conservative approach to various social issues
in a move that could cool the warm reception he has received from some
liberal Catholics since taking office last month.
The Vatican said in a statement Monday that Francis had
reaffirmed the doctrinal evaluation and criticism of U.S. nuns made last
year by the Holy See under his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI. The assessment accused the Leadership Conference of Women Religious,
an organization that represents most U.S. female Catholic orders, of
promoting "radical feminist themes" and ignoring the Vatican's hard line
on same-sex marriage and abortion.
At the time, the Vatican dispatched an archbishop to rewrite the
group's statutes and set up reeducation programs to bring nuns back into
line, alleging that leaders of U.S. orders had challenged the church's
teachings on women's ordination and ministry to homosexuals.
Kenneth Briggs, the author of a book about the Vatican's clash with
U.S. nuns, said Francis' backing of the Holy See's unyielding line was
"a major blow" to prospects for more dialogue.
"It seems like the Vatican has put a more appealing salesman in charge of the same old product," Briggs said.
That didn't take long.
