The position of the 266th Pope of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis, is under serious threat. Pressure is mounting from the world’s media for his resignation following his comments in response to the Christian terrorist attack in Colorado on Saturday.
While the Sovereign of Vatican City did condemn the violence, many commentators were expecting the Pope would get on his knees and apologise on behalf of all Christians for the actions of a man in the United States.
He is particularly feeling the heat from Australia’s Resources Minister Josh Frydenberg, who has accused the Pope of a “graphic failure” of leadership following the Planned Parenthood attack.
Frydenberg’s influence inside the Vatican is said to be second only to God’s.
