First time I've encountered the notion of "binary groups", but welcome the idea. I suppose there have to be "either/or" categories as well as "both/and" ones. Clearly life (and the Gospel) resist any such reductions or distillations. I wonder if it is the western culture in general, or the cultural media (lazy?) that depends on competing ideologies for it's fuel. I also wonder if Francis' nuance and willingness to appear paradoxical will wear out our religious observers, and they will determine it's just too much work to understand a pope who won't sit still for his customary labeling.
