Rush Limbaugh is Wrong, Karen Finney of MSNBC is Nuts: Pope Francis and Capitalism Comments

Do you get it Karen Finney and E.J. Dionne? It is not "progressive" to try to resolve problems by eliminating a human life! The lie of your brand of political progressivism has been exposed, rejected and dismissed by the Pope whom you think you can use to bolster your political agenda!  Also disturbing were words spoken by Rush Limbaugh. His contention, offered on the EIB Network, that some of ...

    I read a few articles about what Pope Francis said about Capitalism. These articles were posted in Catholic Online and other Catholic News websites. The Pope bashes Capitalism as the 'Evil' that has created high unemployment among Europe's youth. No one argues that 'Materialism' is evil because it puts Money and 'Things' ahead of God and humanity. Capitalism is the fruit of Human Freedom that comes from God. Capitalism is the Free Exchange of goods and services between two or more people. Capitalism is NOT theft and cheating. Theft and cheating is just that - Theft and cheating.

    I heard what Rush Limbaugh said about Pope Francis' words about the evils of Capitalism. Rush did a good job in his response to the Pope trying not to offend his Catholic audience. He simply defended Capitalism and its moral and human value. I agreed with him 100%. I disagreed with Pope Francis laying blame for high unemployment among Europe's youth on Capitalism. The records are bright and stark. It is Socialism/Communism that is the bane of western society and the whole world not Capitalism.

    Our Church is under attack again by Marxists/Communists and they are succeeding. I find it interesting why he has not challenged this. Pope John Paul II and Benedict XVI have addressed and challenged the social/political forces behind the Culture of Death and moral degradation. I'll wait for Pope Francis's response to the Death Culture.

    I am reading Pope Francis's exhortation. The following quote struck me that you have seemed to overlook.

    "In today’s world of instant communication and occasionally biased media coverage, the message we preach runs a greater risk of being distorted or reduced to some of its secondary aspects. In this way certain issues which are part of the Church’s moral teaching
    are taken out of the context which gives them their meaning. The biggest problem is when the message we preach then seems identified with those secondary aspects which, important as they are, do not in and of themselves convey the heart of Christ’s message. We need to be realistic and not assume that our audience understands he full background to what we are saying, or is capable of relating what we say to the very heart of the Gospel which gives it meaning, beauty and attractiveness

    First of all your constant attack on the American political left certainly shows your bias and turns me off in terms of whatever you are trying to say. It also seems to me that your message is one of the secondary issues which is getting in the way of "conveying Christ's message." You are right about the morality of Life the constant one issue harping is getting in the way of hearing Christ's message of love. Furthermore, concern for the poor of the world is also a life issue. Not having enough to eat or shelter is a life issue. Not having adequate health care is a life issue. Where is the emphasis for this from the Pro-life group. I believe Pope Francis is trying to get us back to love of neighbor in whatever state the neighbor is in. Deacon, I suggest you go back and read and pray again.

    Whatever you think about Mr. golden "EIB" microphone; he is a moral man. He is a sinner as are we less tan holy types like yourself. He is a friend to Christians and conservatives; if you have nt noticed Catholic are under fire DAILY. WE are being killed and driven out of the middle east as the world, and our Bishops sit on their hands! Africa is another killing zone...Cut Limbaugh some slack.....better yet go back to prayer.

    Your'e doing a lot of spin if you ask me. The Pope's words must not be taken out of context. He very clearly and unequivocally promoted Marxism in his words, and it's beyond reprehensible and disappointing.

    You're not fooling anyone, especially when you refer to liberals as "leftists."

    This being said, I am pleased that the church is going to pay more attention to the social inequities that exist in societies (especially within the United States) by asking the extremely wealthy to do their fair share, rather than picking on the poor, the gay, etc.

    BTW - Jesus WAS a "leftist" and he DID knock down the tables of the money changers.
