Nico: Viva La Liberacíon

Everybody, duck -- in an interview with a Spanish journal, the freshly-elected "Black Pope" has lauded liberation theology:
The Superior General of the Society of Jesus, Adolfo Nicolas, S.J.... said that liberation theology, which has been under scrutiny in the Vatican in the last several decades, is a "courageous and creative response to an unbearable situation of injustice in Latin America."
"As with any theology," the Spanish-born Father-General added, "it needs years to mature."

"It’s a shame that it has not been given a vote of confidence and that soon its wings will be cut before it learns to fly. It needs more time."

No wonder they called him the Second Coming... of Arrupe.
