Pope Francis: Governments Should Redistribute Wealth To The Poor

Conservative media is yelling "stop the printing presses," because the Pope did it again. In a speech that will surely freak out the Glenn Beck's and Fox Newers, Pope Francis called for not only income equality, but for world governments to "redistribute" their wealth to the poors.

Bill O'Reilly will not like this:

Pope Francis called Friday for governments to redistribute wealth to the poor in a new spirit of generosity to help curb the "economy of exclusion" that is taking hold today.

Francis made the appeal during a speech to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the heads of major U.N. agencies who are meeting in Rome this week.

Latin America's first pope has frequently lashed out at the injustices of capitalism and the global economic system that excludes so much of humanity.

On Friday, Francis called for the United Nations to promote a "worldwide ethical mobilization" of solidarity with the poor in a new spirit of generosity.

He said a more equal form of economic progress can be had through "the legitimate redistribution of economic benefits by the state, as well as indispensable cooperation between the private sector and civil society."

Conservatives always try to portray Obama's economic plan as one that turns Americans into moochers while taking your hard earned money, which is ludicrous, but here comes the Pope advocating for " worldwide ethical mobilization" of solidarity with the poors. I mean, their heads will be exploding.
