The direction of the Church

Is it a problem when the Pope appoints someone you don't like to a position of influence?

No, it's a problem when he appoints someone I don't like.

Often, "things [are/were] better in the Church" means "things [are/were] better aligned with my preferences," and even that is a subjective judgment based on a very limited set of empirical data.
