HE’S THE POPE...It’s his job to look out for the poor. Yikes, people.
According to the article the Pope is taking to task Rich people for not doing enough for the poor.
The pope not only has his own bank he has his own country (how many rich people can make that claim?)
If i were to have an audience with the pope concerning this matter I would read to him a slightly altered quote from the bible "Let him with all the riches cast the first coin."
Hypocrisy is not to be tolerated, even if it is the Pope engaging in it! The pope has hundreds of billions let him lead by example and put a large dent in the papal coffers. Otherwise he should move on to other matters.
“HES THE POPE...Its his job to look out for the poor. Yikes, people.”
Not the way he words it. And I find his constant show of solidarity for the poor as if no one else exists that needs spiritual attending to, ostentatious, in a peculiar way. This not living in the Pope’s apartment is baloney. He’s the Pope, not some commoner in a Pope’s disguise. If you are going to be a Pope, act like one. He’s too much a Jesuit, and the conclave should have known better than to hire one. There was a reason he was the first and only Jesuit picked, and hopefully the only Jesuit who will be a Pope after this one’s gone.
Plus, in order to hammer home his man of the people role, he intentionally puts himself in harm’s way mingling with the masses and not using the protection of the enclosed Pope mobile. One day someone, like a whacko Muslim (such as attacked Pope Paul the to be Great) is going to use this Pope for target practice also. He should smarten up and not consider himself invincible, unless he sees himself as a potential martyr, and is intentionally tempting fate.
I just can’t cotton up to this Pope. He wreaks of that Commie social justice philosophy that permeated Latin American countries in general, and infiltrated the Latin American Catholic Church as well. This is also why, before they elected this Pope, I argued that any Pope elected should be from a Western culture, either European or from Canada or the U.S. Not from third world countries on third world continents with a different attitude and view of what Catholicism is. The fact that a PC Pope has been elected is deeply disappointing.
