Pope Francis Is Not Amused

A contribution to this equitable development will also be made both by international activity aimed at the integral human development of all the world’s peoples and by the legitimate redistribution of economic benefits by the State, as well as indispensable cooperation between the private sector and civil society.

Pope Francis to UN delegation, March 9, 2014

 

 

 

Prager University explains why our present system of taxation and fairness are not on speaking terms. My bride has described a possible sequel to this video:

SEQUEL (Suggested by Don’s wife Cathy):  Harry sells his house and moves out of the cul-de-sac, leaving Tom & Dick to fend for themselves (& argue with the much-less-“brotherly” new neighbor) in regard to any future neighborhood improvements — and the cul-de-sac is renamed “Detroit.”

  1. Lock in on the legitimate qualifier to “redistribution of economic benefits,” embrace the Reagan model, in which a rising tide lifts all boats, and declare victory over the social justice warriors.

  2. Harping on it constantly but if one reads “Jesuits” by Malachi Martin one may easily understand Pope Francis. It is Modernism, Relativism and Inculturation as propounded by radical Jesuits for many years. The Marxist tone of the Papal statement above to the UN assumes a socialized New World Order. Intellectually I think the pope is not exactly astute. Economically he is a provincial naif wedded to absurd Marxist philosophy from 150 years ago. No wonder Argentina and Vene zuela are economic basket cases. But they can always blame the US.

  3. The Roman Pontiff, speaking to the United Nations, a pro-abortion and anti-Catholic body if there ever was one, was pleading for “the legitimate redistribution of economic benefits by the State…..”

    I wish I could have seen St. John Paul II and Pope Benedict in person. I would not cross the street to look at the current Roman Pontiff. I would travel to the next state to avoid him.

    I hope the Roman Pontiff, when he visits Poland on World Youth Day, extols the benefits of socialism. That I want to see.

  4. Even if this was equitable it leaves out the corruption factor. When it comes to money corruption always follows. Even the Vatican ( Vatican Bank) is not immune to it. As a traditional Catholic, who goes to confession and receives the Blessed Sacrament at Mass, I wish, I wish the Church hierarchy would once point this out and shame (judge) the people who are breaking the 7th and 10th commandments by their corruption.

  5. “A contribution to this equitable development will also be made both by international activity aimed at the integral human development of all the world’s peoples and by the legitimate redistribution of economic benefits by the State, as well as indispensable cooperation between the private sector and civil society.”
    .
    Does “indispensable cooperation” mean extorted? or how would Pope Francis go about getting such “indispensable cooperation” when Francis has crushed the hearts of truly charitable, conservative Catholics in the Friars and Sister of the Immaculate, and Cardinals Burke and Pell?

  6. It is hard to stay “disinterested” in money. As a conservative I hope to keep money and it’s power in a healthy perspective. Liberals have the same problem…exalting money unable to not give too much attention to money- a claiming freedom from it but obsessed by it and it’s perceived power.
