Seriously, IS the Pope Catholic? We look at several eyebrow-raising comments about atheists, homosexuals and women made by still-new-at-the job Pope Francis. Does he really intend to steer the church in a fresh direction, or is he just employing soothing rhetoric? After all, he's only excommunicated ONE person since he came into power: an Australian priest who advocates ordaining women (gasp) into the priesthood.

Plus:

Is "sexual jihad" a real thing? Or is it just an urban legend?

And...listener feedback!
