Pope Slams Capitalism, Inequality Between Rich And Poor In New Years Message

Source: Huffington Post

Earlier in his homily, the leader of the world's 1.2 billion Roman Catholics decried "hotbeds of tension and conflict caused by growing instances of inequality between rich and poor".

He also denounced "the prevalence of a selfish and individualistic mindset which also finds expression in an unregulated capitalism, various forms of terrorism and criminality".

...

In his full message for the peace day, the pope called for a new economic model and ethical regulations for markets, saying the global financial crisis was proof that capitalism does not protect society's weakest members.

Youbetcha. We be stealing other people's names and trying to discredit them. Especially someone we know is a Catholic and a capitalist.

Le Dumbo is again posing as someone else and says there is nothing wrong with that. Dumbo is a socialist through and through, but he is a bigger asshole than anything.

More hypocrisy from the terminally Slewpid. Defending the religious leader who wants to eliminate birth control for everyone.
Maybe "dojo" is some kind of asylum code for the common area or the TV room.

The Pope, A religous leader I certainly respect, Is still a man who has opinons and a bias, similar to all of us. When he preaches or make a ruling on the Dogma of the Catholic Church, I believe him and his rulings, however, his comment on society and it good or bad points are his comments and not necessarily the opinions or beliefs of the 1.2 billion catholics he shepards

That is a distinction a lot of people miss. The difference between his mandates to his followers regarding dogma, and whatever opinions he chooses to make public.

"Render to Caesar what is Caesar's" was a statement to pay your taxes, even to an occupying country. THe same applies now - render unto the US Government what is the US government's.

the pope should address all the LIBERALS that voted for ABORTION and GAY MARRIAGE, you can not be a Christian and vote for a liberal - just ask you preist on Sunday what the church thinks about ABORTION and GAY MARRIAGE, not that is a discussion to focus on ( VALUES ) liberals have none.

Actually it is not. It was a declaration to let the governments of man deal with earthly maters and let the Church deal with spiritual matters. If you had knowledge of the bible you would know that this was an attempt to trick Jesus in a catch 22 where he either defied Rome (and would be killed) or he supported Rome and could be discredited. The issue brought up was if it was religiously allowed to pay tribute to the living god Caesar as he demanded.

Your elected representatives determine how your tax money is spent, not a dictator.

The US people, through their elected officials, have made it clear what we want.
