Quoted: Randall Balmer on Pope Francis’ Visit to the U.S.


Quote of the day logo
“According to a recent survey, Francis enjoys a 63 percent approval rating, a figure that would be the envy of most politicians. The question is, how will Francis expend that capital this week? Will he press issues that some see as political, or will he frame them as moral issues?” writes Dartmouth’s Randall Balmer in an opinion piece on the website The Conversation.

Balmer is the John Phillips Professor in Religion.
