    So, "Is the Pope Catholic?" is now a legitimate question ???

    Why is that a question? He's undeniably Franciscan. Seems to live far closer to Jesus' teachings than his predecessors.

    He chose the name Francis, but he is a Jesuit, not a Franciscan.

    Right, I should've been more clear. I didn't mean it in the Jesuit/Franciscan Catholic sense. I meant it in that he seems to follow Franciscan principles of living humbly and working with the poor. I'm not a Catholic and don't pay attention much to their different orders. As an outsider to the church, he seems very Franciscan to me.

    He was great as the dad in "Arrested Development."
