I am 100% an atheist. I do not believe in God or Heaven or Hell. But I still highly admire and respect this great man. He's the best Pope the world has had in a very long time. Just like we can't blame Obama for not fixing the country overnight after his predecessor almost ruined us and so many people are working against him and trying to undermine him, the EXACT same thing can be said of Pope Francis I. Give him a chance, give him the benefit of the doubt. He has more than earned it.
It was my great, great honor to meet His Holiness Pope Francis. I am a huge fan - he is not only a wonderful leader for the Catholic Church, he is a fantastic steward for all of God's creatures. His environmental work inspires me and I look forward to working together for a clean energy future.
