Let’s be honest here. The reason so-called conservative Catholics are defending the Pope is the same reason that Colin Powell defends Obama. It is tribal. Powell defends Obama because he is black, period. It has nothing to do with him loving his policies. It is same with the Pope. It doesn’t matter what he says, he is the Pope period. His so-called conservative defenders will do mental gymnastics because they cannot free themselves from a tribal mentality. I’m Episcopalian, I admit my religious leaders are full of **** right up to the Archbishop of Canterbury. The default position is that they are wrong on everything, it does not pain me to say so. So if the Pope states something stupid about economics, admit it, don’t go into full spin mode.
You will not get hit by lightning if you admit that he is ignorant of economics and the free market.
owtherwise its social something....but hardly ministry...unless they are claiming they are ministering communism....
unless reputable traditional Catholic groups say otherwise, I am beginning to think this Pope is a prop of the left......seems he’s making up sound bites for the left.....
we don't ever have to worry about the rich ever having to share one single penny....
what?....now we can’t even hoard food?
> calling on governments to implement “effective policies” to guarantee people’s fundamental rights, including access to capital, services, educational resources, healthcare and technology.
Want access to capital? Get a job, and pay your bills on time.
Note, his topic is from a couple months ago.
There is no CEO in the world living in as grand a resildence as the Pope.
There is no CEO in the world treated with the reverence and respect of his employee that the Pope receives.
