The guy who wrote this opinion piece is called Ben Lowry, he is the editor of the Lundyletter.
In the darkened mind of Ben Lowry, the Pope is, “a person of note???”
The Lord Jesus Christ dealt with people like Lowry in Luke 16:15, that and those, which the world thinks of as “noteworthy” are abominations in the sight of God!
Luke 16:15 And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.
