Pope Francis thanked Genoa Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, the outgoing president of the Italian Bishops’ Conference, for his ten years of service notably “for the patience he has had with me.” He added: “It is not easy to work with this Pope.” Francis spoke at the opening of the general assembly of the Italian Bishops in Rome. Talking to the bishops he encouraged them to speak without fear, “I am ready to hear opinions that are unpleasant to me.”

In realty Francis has a long history of punishing or eliminating those who contradict or criticise him.

  1. “I am ready to hear opinions that are unpleasant to me.” (some Argentinian guy)

    “Let a thousand flowers bloom.” (Mao Tse Tung)

    • Actually Mao’s no.2 man, Chou en Lai, said that and exactly as “Let a hundred flowers bloom, let a hundred schools of thought contend” during a supposed liberalizing period in Red China’s history, allowing opposition to Mao’s policies to express and thus identify themselves. This was followed by the era of the repressive Cultural Revolution, during which Mao’s Red Guards uprooted any such blooming flowers.
