Most American Christians aren't Roman Catholic and thus look askance at the television screen being filled with the pope and the Vatican on Christmas and Easter, the industry chieftains, their acolytes and the sundry unschooled presuming cavalierly that “one size fits all.”
This current 2015 early autumn papal screen monopoly will probably serve to augment such annoyance, helping Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's polls favorability crest in the 20s and 30s last a little bit longer.
Like him or not, Trump is closer to why America is successful than those crowding the screen happily with the pontiff to praise dirigiste leveling, humility and submission .
