How would you rate Pope Francis?


People, and reporters, can't seem to stop talking about Pope Francis.

Today he sent a personal message to Muslims to mark the end of Ramadan. He tweets.  When asked about gay priests he said, ““If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” He's made financial changes to the papacy that reflect his modest lifestyle.

His papacy is still young. He was elected in March.

What do you think of him so far?

Mormons believe that “God is no respecter of persons” (Acts 10:34). He loves all of his children, regardless of when or where they were born. We also believe that baptism, and the covenants we make at baptism, are stepping stones on the path to salvation and exaltation.
