Pope Francis and the Pharisees

Robert Mickens
Pope Francis has been known to make off-colour or politically incorrect jokes from time to time. For example, he has provoked sighs and raised eyebrows with stereotypical mother-in-law asides and occasional references to women as strawberries on the cake.
Then there’s his constant harping about modern-day Pharisees, as he frequently labels those Catholic priests and bishops who are being hypocrites.
