      Well, that is possible I suppose. I do not know a lot about Donald's religion or even if he really has one. But he said he's Presbyterian, was baptised as one.
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      To the best of my knowledge, Imalive, neither Luther nor Calvin are alive today and issuing statements on church and society like the current pope does.

      Albion, that'd be because Francis is alive today (as far as I know, no news headlines about the sudden death of the pope today).
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      Do you mean that the pope has thousands of things to do in "so little time"?
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      Actually, the pope DOES tweet like President Trump. Perhaps that is why this thread hasn't done much.

      I suspect that the Pope's approval rating would be somewhere close to Trump's which is currently around 37% approval rating. A historic low for all Presidents.
