Plenty of  liberals were thrilled Thursday to hear what they could only assume was Pope Francis’ message to the Republican Party. In an interview with Jesuit magazine La Civilta Cattolica, the Pope said the Church “could fall like a house of cards” if it were to “insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods.” He further warned of divisiveness were the Church “to talk about these issues all the time.”

With more than a million Catholics to think of, it’s unlikely Pope Francis was speaking with the GOP in mind, but you wouldn’t know that from Twitter. Check out these converts.

Rebranding? It does sound a lot like Republicans talking about their “big tent.” A lot like it.

“This church with which we should be thinking is the home of all, not a small chapel that can hold only a small group of selected people,” the Pope said. “We must not reduce the bosom of the universal church to a nest protecting our mediocrity.” He also reaffirmed that the “most important thing is the first proclamation: Jesus Christ has saved you.” How many of these new “converts” will accept that teaching?
