The vulgar, dumb version? Not Patriotism.

Francis: Women are the most beautiful things that God created. The Church is woman. Church is a feminine word [in Italian]. One cannot do theology without this femininity. You are right that we don’t talk about this enough. I agree that there must be more work on the theology of women. I have said that we are working in this sense.A biological realist might say that a normal heterosexual man would naturally find beautiful women to be beautiful; that's just how normal heterosexual men are by nature. But if we are talking about "moral" beauty or "spiritual" beauty, this would be crossing the line into white knight pedestalizing territory.
