Mystery Posters Rebuking Pope Appear in Rome; Accuse Pope of Attacking Conservative Catholics

Posters accusing Pope Francis of attacking conservative Catholics appeared around Rome today (February 4, 2017) and were quickly covered up by city officials, according to the Reuters website.

The posters -- put up by mystery activists early this morning -- featured a picture of a stern-faced pope and the slogan: "Where's your mercy?"

The text accused Francis of several interventions targeting conservatives, including what the posters called "the beheading of the Knights of Malta."

This was a reference to an ancient Catholic order of knights which is now a worldwide charity and whose former Grand Master handed in his resignation to the pope last week after a two-month, highly public feud with the Vatican.
