Pope Francis just expertly trolled his critics
The Week, by Elizabeth Stoker Bruenig

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 7/5/2014 1:01:24 PM

When faced with a McCarthy-esque smear campaign, best to pull a communist switcheroo. Since Pope Francis began speaking in public about the Christian view on economic matters, opponents have engaged in what often feels like a McCarthy-era smear campaign, accusing the Pope of things like Marxism, communism, and Leninism. (snip) Rather than making another attempt to roundly decry a set of ideologies no one seriously suspects him of adhering to, Pope Francis turned the criticisms around on the critics: "I can only say that the communists have stolen our flag. The flag of the poor is Christian. Poverty is at the

What has poverty ever done to improve mankind? I wish popes would stick to their field: saving souls.

The Pope ought to expertly troll his job of being head of the Catholic Church. There are many areas that could use his energy and attention. He´s another Obama; all talk, no work.

No, Francis, the flag of "the poor" is, in fact, Red. Such unfortunate allies you have chosen.

And if poverty is indeed at the center of the Gospel, perhaps you could set a good example and donate the vast riches of Vatican City to "the poor"...

Marxism is bad enough. When cloaked in "spiritual purpose" it is even worse, because more seductive. The fax that more Leftists like this Pope than not should be the biggest Red flag of all.

Its an immutable law of nature that money collected by the government to aid the poor never actually alleviates the suffering or the number of the poor. But over the centuries, religious and community programs do. Subsidiarity is the Catholic Churches principle that these social problems should be dealt with at the lowest possible level both for the good of the poor but also for the betterment of the faith of the community. Certainly none of the previous 3 popes has suggested that a national government should take responsibility for the homeless, hungry, needy, or sick.

" rather than Christianity looking suspiciously communist over its concern for the poor, perhaps communism looks suspiciously Christian."

Sorry, I don´t buy this.

"In fact, it would seem rather impossible to practice any legitimate form of Christianity without seeking justice for the poor."

I don´t buy this, either. This so-called "justice for the poor," or social justice, usually refers to "distributing the wealth" by taxing the producers in order to support the non-producers. This has nothing to do with Christ, nor even with Christianity.

Rather the Bible says:

"You shall do no injustice in judgment; you shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor." (Leviticus 19:15 RSV)

#5 ... I was waiting for someone to make that suggestion. Definitely not original though. Judas made a similar suggestion (John 12:5).

For anyone who might be harboring the same idea ... google The Myth of Vatican Wealth–on Helping the Poor written by Jeffrey L. Morrow in March 2013.

The wealth of Harvard University far surpasses that of the Vatican.

It took Lech Walesa to school John Paul II in the economic devastation that is socialism, Marxism, communism. Methinks this pope needs an "economic" education too. No wonder the left thinks he´s so great; that is until he speaks out against abortion, homosexual "marriage" and birth control.

Free markets have done more to eliminate poverty than the Catholic church ever has. If Francis actually believed in justice for the poor he should use the trillions of dollars hoarded by the Catholic church to help the poor. Instead, all he´s doing is calling on governments to confiscate property from productive segments of the economy. This strategy is more likely to create poverty than to reduce it.

The Catholic Church does more for the poor than anyone else - has more useful agencies & so forth. What the Pope may be trying to do is to awaken capitalist society to at least a genuine concern for others. If such a concern were visible, it would snatch the rug out from under capitalism´s critics.

#10 with all do respect that is simply not the case. The Catholic Church is the world´s largest charitable organization. The Catholic Church built western civilization-- it created hospitals, founded the college and university system, preserved countless pieces of art, literature and historic documents from destruction, founded orphanages, compiled the bible and runs the largest education system in the world. Catholic missionaries blanket the earth-- many of the most remote places in the world benefit from the charity of the Catholic Church alone. The Catholic Church went to war during the crusades to protect western culture and preserve freedom. Do you think the American founders just came up with the idea of freedom by themselves? Of course not. They may have been Protestant, but that concept was (and still is) fostered by the Catholic Church.

While not everything the Vatican does is perfect and not every Pope says the right things all of the time, I am thankful to God for the gift if the Church. Without it, life as we know it would not exist. That is an absolute fact.

#14 - You are free to do whatever you wish with your "time, talent and treasure." Those choices will have an impact on where you spend eternity.

And ... FYI:

The saying, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime" is not from the Bible. It is an old Chinese proverb.

"#11 and 12 you confuse taking care of the poor with ending poverty. I suggest you visit the Bible on the difference between giving a fish and teaching someone to fish."

Ironically, I said nothing about taking care of the poor or ending poverty. I said the Catholic Church ´does more for the poor than anyone else" & has useful agencies to help them. Anything beyond that is sheer projection. I just now googled "Catholic Church programs that help the poor help themselves" and there was an endless series of pages. I stopped scrolling to the right at 16 pages full of items fitting that description.

I am not a Catholic by the way - just a citizen who has a some antennae out for helpers in the community. And nevermind the Bible verses that would endorse helping people in need. There are too many of them to list!

Officials say during the pursuit the suspect turned toward the officer with a handgun and began firing shots. The officer was hit in the left arm.

At a large outdoor mass, Cardinal Angelo Amato began the process that will confirm Alvaro del Portillo as a saint. Del Portillo succeeded Opus Dei´s founder, St. Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer, as leader of the organization. Opus Dei, once considered a secretive, right-wing, cult-like group that curried high favor within the church, has been trying to foster a friendlier image in recent years.

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character.

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington.
