Is the current Pope a post-Catholic?

From the Spectator regarding an article about Pope John Paul II :

‘Correction of the day’ goes to the Times for an apology which brings new meaning to the age-old question ‘is the Pope Catholic?’

Buried on the paper’s letters page is a gem of an apology concerning an article they ran about Karol Wojtyla, the first non-Italian Pope since the Dutch Pope Adrian VI, who served from 1522 to 1523.

The current Pope is also a non-Italian and may have moved beyond Catholicism. His brand of populist religion might make him the first example of a post-Catholic – or should it be a post-modern Catholic?
