How am I making it up out of thin air? I provided a link and others have said, if he’s being misinterpreted it’s up to him to clarify what he means.

Why is he lobbying the UN for wealth redistribution? Call it whatever you want, but it’s not the Popes business to ask governments to redistribute wealth. When government does it it’s theft, not charity.

I don’t trust Jesuits. They have their own agenda and it doesn’t include me.

“How am I making it up out of thin air?”

Simple: He’s never advocated communism.

“I provided a link and others have said, if he’s being misinterpreted it’s up to him to clarify what he means.”

If you’re misrepresenting him - and you are - it’s up to you to stop doing it. Take some responsibility for your actions. You made a claim. Show me where he ever once advocated communism. And explain this away: http://www.newsy.com/videos/pope-francis-the-marxist-ideology-is-wrong/

“Why is he lobbying the UN for wealth redistribution?”

I don’t think he’s lobbying anyone. I think he is saying those who have can help those who don’t and that governments can organize this through taxation. I don’t think that’s a good idea. To me it smacks of forced “charity” but he is entitled to his view. What I don’t do is make things up that are untrue. I’m leaving that to you.

“Call it whatever you want, but it’s not the Popes business to ask governments to redistribute wealth.”

Sure it is - if that’s what he believes will help the poor. You can disagree with his ideas, but to say he has no business doing it is at the very least hypocritical since anyone could just as easily point out it isn’t your business what the pope does. See how that works?

“When government does it it’s theft, not charity.”

I agree it isn’t charity, although I can’t call all taxation outright theft since we agree to it in some fashion.

“I don’t trust Jesuits.”

I don’t trust people who make things up. Which distrust is based more on reality here?

“They have their own agenda and it doesn’t include me.”

And yet you’re posting about something that you say doesn’t include you?
