I agree that he's basically continuing the same message that he preached as a cardinal. But as Pope, I'm guessing he's a bit more conscious of the perception United States conservatives may have of his message. Doesn't mean he's going to change the message, just means he's aware that it has more far-reaching effects than it ever did.
I had to word my emails carefully so as to avoid giving offense to the conservative member/s of that group. I'm pretty pleased with the totality of Francis' message though, and agree that he's an unprecedented breath of fresh air.
Interesting that one of your parents was/is LDS. That always makes religion a hot-button topic.
Will continue to post here if/as new messages/emails trickle in.
