The Libtards are grasping at Pope Francis’s adamant promotion of “Social Justice”, which is the religious cousin of Liberalism.
That being said, his stand on abortion and same-sex marriage is FAR from Liberal. The proof will be in the proverbial pudding over the coming weeks and months...
There are a couple strains of "social justice" within contemporary Catholicism and within the Christianity as a whole.
Certainly, there is the branch of liberation theology that is more a dark shadow of outright communism than it is a cousin of mere liberalism. Then, there are movements akin to "Distributism," which is quite well aligned with traditional Christian emphasis on charity (freely given, not compelled) and places much value on the rights to private property. Many on the right see "distributism" and fail to differentiate it from "redistributionism."
From what I've seen and read so far, Pope Francis is no fan of heavy handed statism, and for the time being, I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt that his economic views are consistent with that.
