Pope Francis: Too Much Bleeding Heart Socialism, Not Enough Fire and Brimstone

What’s up with the new Pope?  Pope Francis doesn’t hate homosexuals, and on top of that he actually talks about economic inequality.

He recently tweeted:  “My thoughts turn to all who are unemployed, often as a result of a self-centered mindset bent on profit at any cost.”

Commie!  Why does he hate America?!?!?!?

A University of New Haven professor of marketing and international business said:

“Like many people, he thinks capitalism won't survive unless it decreases income disparity.  I think it's fair to say he's arguing for a more European version of capitalism going forward, especially after the Great Recession, so there's more of a safety net for people when they need it.”

According to an online entrepreneur who connects small-business owners with financing:

“His comments are of high importance to me.  The kind of issues he's talking about are too often ignored by religious and business leaders.”

A College of the Holy Cross professor of religious studies said:

“Being a Jesuit priest and having spent so much time in Argentina as bishop and cardinal had a great effect on him.  He's seen a lot of poverty close up and raised the issue in Argentina before becoming pope.”

However, if you still believe in an angry god who hates sinners and poor people, you haven’t been forgotten.  Bill Donohue, president (and only member) of the Catholic League, continues to speak out on behalf of the dwindling subspecies Biblehumpus Americus:

“Personally, I’m much more market friendly, as was John Paul II.”

And we can always count on Rick “Abortion Cooties” Santorum for our daily fire and brimstone fix.

I think the Pope should tell American Priest to stop denying Communion to Politicians who support abortion and start denying it to the Conservative ones who vote against the poor, civil rights and capital punishment. Three issues the Catholic Church keeps insisting they feel strongly about!

The fact somebody high in the Catholic hierarchy used the term "market friendly" just shows how of touch they are with what Jesus taught.

Anonymous: I hope New Christians will be different; or it could be "Meet the New Christian, same as the Old Christian."

Erik: If the Catholic Church stays involved in politics, it certainly would be appropriate for them to excommunicate the warmongers, racists and the moneylenders that Jesus drove from the temple.

Jim: True, "Jesus" and "market friendly" is sort of an oxymoron.
