Current pope seems alright. There was another pope in the 20th century who was also ok from communist perspective. He got removed though in order to make way for that ultra-reactionary Polish pope, who did a major part in undermining socialism in Poland. I think the Catholic church is still the snake pit it always used to be, except among the different internal orders, factions and sects liberals and Zionists might have gained some influence recently (e.g. the Rothschild heir is actually catholic). In the late medieval era the Evangelic Church used to have a lot of leftists such as Melanchthon, Hus and even actual proto-communists such as Müntzer among it's ranks, but these days it is no better than Rome. It's pretty much a big business with branches in healthcare and charity and engages in privatizing education, too. I'm sure Luther himself would fume about the current state of the Lutheran church, especially about the business part. The EKD is dominated by calvinists, neoliberals and anti-communists and close to the neoliberal Greens (who played an important but often overlooked role in undermining socialism in the DDR). Anglo and burger "protestants" i'd consider even more reactionary than catholics, "protestant" burger sects seem to be composed of far-right lunatics entirely.
