Shut Up, They Explained

In a striking rebuke to Pope Francis, an editorial posted on the web site of the Archdiocese of Mexico City argues that the Pontiff was misinformed when he criticized the Mexican hierarchy.
During his February visit to Mexico, Pope Francis urged the country's bishops not to identify themselves with the wealthy and powerful but to serve the poor. "We do not need princes," the Pontiff said.

Mexico City  has an intelligent disagreement

 In its online response, the Mexico City archdiocese responded: "The Mexican bishops have been accompanying the suffering, downtrodden people, devoting their lives to others and not living like 'princes.'" The editorial suggests that Pope Francis had based his criticism on inaccurate reports about the state of the Church in Mexico. "Who gave the Pope bad advice?" the online essay asks.

HA! He was just misinformed, like Rick in "Casablanca".
