Cardinal George responds to Pope’s comments

Chicago’s Archbishop is speaking extensively for the first time on a recent interview given by Pope Francis.

The Pope said many in the church put too much focus on social issues like homosexuality, contraception, and abortion.

Cardinal George says he welcomes the Pope’s emphasis on mercy, but also warned that some were misinterpreting it as a message of total acceptance.

George said the Pope is not moving away from long standing church policies, just changing the approach.
