I posted on the original thread of my curiosity as to the context of the quote, or even if it was the whole quote. We finally have a new bishop (who seems to be pretty good so far) after ours was transferred to Joliet, Illinois. Bishop Conlon is a commie and we’re glad to be rid of him, so I’m a bit frustrated when it appears that the Pope is making these comments. I’d love to know more about this comment and conversation if anybody has anything to add!
Post number 7 explains it, “wild capitalism”. There is another term for it, “crony capitalism”.
This Pope Francis is an economic leftist. Period. Conservative Catholics, here and elsewhere, keep trying to make excuses for his comments - but they aren't fooling anyone. This Pope has a lot of good qualities, but he is a disaster when it comes to economic/fiscal issues. Pope Frances isn't an outright communist or anything that radical (he seems to have distanced himself from liberation theology), but he's a big government, social welfare state supporting liberal. His economic views are fairly typical of South American Jesuits - and that's not a good thing.
