Why Pope Francis’ message is
welcomed by many conservatives

Daily Caller, by Matt Lewis

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 11/28/2013 11:35:41 PM

The other day, Pope Francis delivered what has been described as a stinging critique of unfettered capitalism and “unbridled consumerism.” As I mentioned on Morning Joe Wednesday, free markets and capitalism are responsible for more wealth and prosperity — for more people — than any other economic system ever devised by man. We should continue to point that out, but this doesn’t mean Pope Francis’ concerns aren’t valid. Just as conservatives must make the moral case for free markets, we must also concede that we live in a fallen world full of greed and sin. It is not inconsistent to

Must read. Certainly a must read for those who on occasion go the church on Sunday instead of talk shows and brunch.

I strongly urge all concerned to read what Francis wrote. Matt Lewis shows no evidence of having done so. Francis does not mention "capitalism" at all. Francis does attack free markets, trickle down economics, and any socioeconomic order that permits inequality. He explicitly calls for state action and for a "vigorous change of approach on the part of political leaders" to address this "crisis."

That Francis is ignorant of Reaganomics is annoying. That he is entirely economically illiterate is disturbing. But to advocate state-sponsored expropriation after the crimes of the last century is truly appalling.

Oh no. The last thing we need are voices on the Right defending and excusing the clear pro-Marxism (reactionary prejudice, actually) of Pope Francis, the Left´s latest and greatest spokesman for economic "fairness" and "equality". The economic illiteracy of Francis is, to judge by his condemnation of free markets, to the Left of even Obama - so would Matt Lewis try to justify any pro-socialist Obama statement like he does here?

An insightful 20th century writer said that the slavery of collectivism can be imposed by brute force or by mysticism, and that the two often work together toward the same unfortunate end. Enlisting the world´s Catholics to march to the drum of Marx, Che and Obama ("compassion" in real-world politics) would not be an act of mercy from this pontiff, it would be a crime.

Pope Francis is living proof that papal infallibility doesn´t extend to economics. His intentions may be pure (and I believe they are), but his observations and assertions about free market system are puerile.

One does not need divine revelation to plainly see that socialist systems have not only not served the needs of the poor, but in fact have dragged the majority of the people into poverty and misery, with only the elite governing class having privileged levels of comfort. History is littered with failed socialist systems. And the Pope was surrounded by failed socialist systems in South America.

The Pope´s desire to minister to the needs of the poor should not be clouded by flawed condemnation of the only system that actually gives them an opportunity to materially improve their lives.

The last pope who understood economics was Pope Leo XIII with Rerum Novarum in 1891. All the rest, including this pope are clueless.

If the Pope were to return to the New Testament, Matthew 25, he would read the Parable of the Talents wherein the Kingdom of Heaven is like a man embarking on a long journey and gives his possessions to his servants.

Go read it yourself and decide if the Good Pope understands Christ.

The point is that each of us should go and make the most of what has been given to us. For those who don´t, theirs shall be taken and give to those who have.

Be very suspicious of that interview, because the author of the controversial Pope Francis interview said he wrote the Pope’s answers ‘with my own words.’

I meant to add that the man who interviewed the Pope is a socialist who admitted he never took notes and he didn´t record the interview. He relied totally upon memory.

In a meeting with the journalists of the Foreign Press Association of Rome, Scalfari maintained that all his interviews have been conducted without a recording device, nor taking notes while the person is speaking.
“I try to understand the person I am interviewing, and after that, I write his answers with my own words,” Scalfari explained.

I believe this pope´s intentions are *not* pure. He judges those whose charitable spending patterns and priorities differ from his own.

And he excuses the *avarice* and *envy* of the dishonest poor who desire to have (by force) what they had not earned.

Note well, I did not refer to hard-working, honest and humble poor, since they respect the God-given right Jesus said the rich man had to spend his own money *his* way. See the following passage:

Matthew 20:15: "Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?"

And (from the Apostle Paul): Romans 14:4: "Who art thou that judgest another man´s servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth."

Free-market capitalism is only part of what´s needed. Supporting elements are a functional justice system, the Rule of Law and sanctity of contract. Without these supports, capitalism cannot have a salutary effect beyond flea markets and microbusinesses.

Lotsa posters yapping about ´free market capitalism´ badly need a dose of reality. Much of our economy is infested w/´crony capitalism´ eg. the Insurance Companies carrying Obama´s water, Autos and Banks who desperately grabbed taxpayer funded bailouts under Bush, Food Companies who ´run´ the DOA´s Food Stamp program etc. Pope Francis speaks from the wisdom of Rarum Novarum (Leo XIII/1891)which defined the rights and mutual responsibilities of both Capital and Labor. For the willfully uninformed, that Encyclical forcefully condemned both survival of the fittest Capitalism as well as collectivist Marxism. Pope Francis speaks from that tradition.

Eloquently put, #2. #13 also makes some good points. What I find in most advocating the "Social Gospel" is a lack of emphasis on 2 Thess. 3:10. It was a problem in the first century and it sure hasn´t improved.

Unaware of the witch hunt carried out by McCarthy’s rainbow-brandishing gay great-grandsons in Silicon Valley, a middle-aged man came forward and cried out in Italian, “Is it just me, or is the gay lobby imposing a dictatorship on us with their so-called scientific experts?” The science to which he referred wasn’t JavaScript, but rather psychology and pediatrics.

The people at Mozilla may yet live to regret their decision in cooperating with the forcing out of Brendan Eich. Apparently the internet giant has been getting a lot of negative reaction to its jettisoning of Eich for his contribution in support of California’s Proposition 8 back in 2008. Whether or not this will actually end up hurting Mozilla, one wonders whether Mozilla even anticipated the possibility. The folks at Mozilla travel in a world in which PC thought dominates, and if you don’t believe me, take Nate Silver’s word for it (and after the 2012 election, I’m inclined to

But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
