POT CALLS KETTLE BLACK: Pope’s New Year Address Deplores Rampant Capitalism
He deplored “hotbeds of tension and conflict caused by growing instances of inequality between rich and poor”.
Those “hotbeds” also grew out of “the prevalence of a selfish and individualistic mindset which also finds expression in an unregulated financial capitalism”, as well as “various forms of terrorism and crime”, he said.
I’m sure all would be well if women would just do as their told, keep their legs shut until married and then die in great numbers due to pregnancy and childbirth.
The world economy would right itself, the lion would sleep with the lamb and all would give their tithe to the Vatican as G-d wills.
I have a difficult time with a religious leader who criticizes any economic situation but does not open his own vast coffers to help people. He can sleep soundly at night knowing his Solid Gold Cross is waiting for him when he awakes.
