After the release of ‘Evangelii Gaudium,’ political pundits and others are calling the Pope a socialist and claiming he is against capitalism. Others are claiming that since he is South American, he is somehow tainted with liberation theology. I really do not understand where they get these ideas from. As usual, reactionaries find any minor detail to escalate in order to bring in an audience.
Rush is obviously not good at reading comprehension. He filters things through his narrow view on life. The Pope is for what is just as Christ taught, not what is “American.” Any economic system that puts wealth above people does not work and is unjust. This is the Pope’s message.
