Beware of The BLOG...it creeps, it leaps, it glides & slides all over the place.
Capitalism with a conscience (taking into account how your actions affect others and being generous to the less fortunate to help them get ont heir own feet) can be found throughout the Scripture as far as i can see, although it is never called that.
The Pope should just stop talking
Missymimi: Your acertation is wise, but unfortunately, many people don't see it that way.
Jan: Yes, and I'll tell him in Spanish... Cállate la boca!
The Pontiff is a dyed in the wool Marxist. I don't think that anything the bishops say will change his point of view. The suffering people of Venezuela, and those suffering as a result of Islamic depredations seem to be moot to him.
LL: I know. I can spot the commies a mile away from their rhetroic. Believe me, I have experience.
As a practicing Catholic and a true conservative in the Reagan mold - I always find it a little suspicious of the attacks against the Holy See. This AT piece seems to be in the category, with the false assertion that Pope Francis is a closet Maduro colluder or something because "he hasn't spoken out." Not only is this a false assertion, it is a ridiculous excuse to attack this pope and the Church in general. There is a lot of Catholic bias out there, but Jesus did promise we would have to pick up our cross to follow Him. As for Pope Francis, I believe him to be an excellent witness to Christ, and an excellent witness of how to serve the poor authentically. That doesn't mean that I don't cringe when he veers of the reservation and says something about global warming, I'm willing to give him a little leeway on those little things. Rather silly to blame the pope for Venezuela. This piece seems a little more balanced on the matter. At the end of the day, friends can disagree and still be friends.
DaBlade: I didn't intend to belittle your faith with this post. I'm a lapsed Catholic myself, but when I criticize the Pope it's not because I want to see him or Catholicism fail. Pope Francis has been very vocal on many issues including climate change, open borders, abolition of life time imprisonment, gun control, world government, redistribution of wealth, divorce, etc., but as the first Latin American Pope, he can't bring himself to speak out against the atrocities the communists are causing in Venezuela? I don't question his witness towards Christ and the poor, but I do believe he is a believer in modern liberation theology. I hate to bring the Russians into this discussion, but I do believe it was an attempt by the KGB to infiltrate and demoralize the Catholic church. A good book by George Neumayr, "The Political Pope," can detail this position thoroughly. As you said, we can disagree and still be friends.
