I'm not a Catholic, but . . . . .

(Via Washington Post):
(Via Keystone Funnies)
“Some people continue to defend trickle-down theories which assume that economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness in the world,” Francis wrote in the papal statement. “This opinion, which has never been confirmed by the facts, expresses a crude and naive trust in the goodness of those wielding economic power and in the sacra­lized workings of the prevailing economic system.” 
“Meanwhile,” he added, “the excluded are still waiting.”
I like this Pope! He seems to take the teachings of his Messiah much more seriously than many of the so-called Catholics in this country. And anyone who gets accused of being a Marxist by pieces of waste like Rush Limbaugh is okay in my book.

It remains to be seen if the flock, who considered the pronouncements of other, more conservative  Popes "infallible", is listening.
