This troublesome priest

The Argentinian pope seems to be unaware of the Commandment that calls for not bearing false witness;
Pope Francis called Thursday for a bold cultural revolution to correct what he described as a "structurally perverse" economic system where the rich exploit the poor, turning Earth into an "immense pile of filth."
'Exploit[ation]' is a Marxian idea, not a Christian one, but it is the richer, capitalistic countries that keep their environments clean, not the poorest ones. As one might expect a South American to be aware. And how did that cultural revolution work out in Mao's China when it was tried?

Also, clicking on the link above to the 'structurally perverse' economic system, gets one to this gem of left-wing idolatry (another Commandment violated);
Pope Francis added his voice Wednesday to the feminist anthem of equal pay for equal work, saying it's "pure scandal" that women earn less than men for doing the same job.
Francis also lambasted the attitude of those who blame the crisis in families on women getting out of the house to work. He said such attitudes are a form of "machismo" that shows how men "want to dominate women."
So, the Pope favors children left to their own devices in the streets of Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro?

Someone needs to examine his conscience before sanctimoniously lecturing 'the world'.

  1. The Pope is so correct. Let me apply his thought to medicine.

    Doctors should attend the sick without pay. Under capitalism, doctors feed on the misery of the sick, demanding pay to help them. This turns a hospital into an immense pile of filth.

    Follow the Cuban model. Pay doctors the same as cab drivers. Pay them enough to live, but not to exploit misery. God will decide in the end which miseries will be placed upon the people.
