RE: Unfettered capitalism is NOT a free market. And the Pope NEVER made a statement against free markets.

_________________________________________________________________________________________

How do you understand this statement?

“We can no longer trust in the unseen forces and the invisible hand of the market. Growth in justice requires more than economic growth, while presupposing such growth: it requires decisions, programmes, mechanisms and processes specifically geared to a better distribution of income, the creation of sources of employment and an integral promotion of the poor which goes beyond a simple welfare mentality. I am far from proposing an irresponsible populism, but the economy can no longer turn to remedies that are a new poison, such as attempting to increase profits by reducing the work force and thereby adding to the ranks of the excluded.”

Many have an issue. They feel they have to defend the Pope, even when he says something they think is wrong (note this is not about faith or morals, so they are under no obligation to find it infallible).

The most convenient take is to call it a bad translation, and run with it.
