Pope Francis is breaking with tradition and changing the tone of the papacy, both to the delight and chagrin of the Catholic Church.

While Pope Francis is a social conservative, he rejects the confrontational, caustic approach favored by many right-wing Catholic culture warriors in favor of openness and understanding.
