Jeb Bush better be careful about criticizing Pope Francis - the Pope is popular!

Will "Jeb!" attend the Papal Mass with Pope Francis, in Philadelphia, on September 27th?

Governor Jeb Bush (a.k.a. "Jeb!) speaks reverently about attending Roman Catholic Mass, while also speaking Spanish on the late night Jimmy Fallon show (a majority of Hispanics are Roman Catholic). Then, "Jeb!" criticizes the popular Pope Francis, about his position on climate change! These are obviously confusing political messages. 

What "Jeb!" doesn't "get" is the popularity of Pope Francis, especially when his beloved Holiness is compared to the past unpopular Bush family's international policies.

Perhaps, highlighting the issue of being Roman Catholic might work for "Jeb!", but he simply can't go around criticizing Pope Francis while, at the same time, publicly practicing his faith. One of the two philosophies must go underground. 

"Jeb!" either buries his skepticism about climate change or he puts his Roman Catholic faith underground. It's simply unethical for him to continue to carry both banners.

Pope Francis warns of destruction of Earth's ecosystem....

Explosive intervention by Pope Francis set to transform climate change debate.  The Guardian reports that Pope Francis will publish his Papal letter in five languages.

Jeb Bush attends Mass

The most anticipated papal letter for decades (perhaps since Pope Paul VI)  will be published in five languages on Thursday. 

His letter will call for an end to the ‘tyrannical’ exploitation of nature by mankind. 

Could Pope Francis lead a challenge in the battle against global warming?  Obviously, the Pope, who also happens to have a background in chemistry, is putting climate on his short list. 

Therefore, this means Pope Francis will advocate for this science with the world's Roman Catholic's. 

Consequently, "Jeb!" will become as unpopular as his father and his brother, if he intends to join the international community as an elected president, who doesn't believe in climate change. 

Even more graphic, "Jeb!" will be embarrassed when the Pope, who is his faith's religious leader, stands up against him to speak publicly about climate change. 

By the way, will "Jeb!" attend the September 27th, Festival of Families and Papal Mass, when Pope Francis visits Philadelphia, this fall?

"Jeb!" must realize the enormous world wide popularity of Pope Francis. 

Jimmy Fallon's night television show, featuring a skit with "Jeb!" won't help Bush to become a better Roman Catholic.  

On the other hand, joining in an agreement with the popular Pope Francis and his position on climate change, will improve his prospects for becoming a popular presidential candidate.
