Re "Pope Embraces Marxism" (Letters, Dec. 2): Are we now to treat Pope Francis, whom Catholics believe is God's representative on earth, and his message, to a hyperbolic Fox News kind of analysis? The letter writer not only misunderstands the pope's point, but also offends those of us who believe that this pope, finally, speaks for God. Was it Marxist for God to send his son to be a poor shepherd, rather than the historical equivalent of a CEO? The letter was even to a lapsed Catholic such as I.
