There is a VERY strong conservative contingent in the Catholic Church that is not at all happy with this Pope. They are easy enough to spot, for the most part, since they are vocal about who deserves rights and who gets to be top dog. They’re not. It’s pandering and a naked admission of taking a stance against human rights. The translation is that they want you to have no rights except.
I’m a born catholic, but not practicing, don’t know the last time I was in church that wasn’t a funeral. Just wanted to add that this abomination of catholicism you describe is not THE catholicism, but very specifically catholicism in the US. Here in Switzerland where I grew up and live again, there are areas that are very conservative when it comes to what’s right and wrong.
