Pope Francis Re-Stakes Out the Parameters of the Teachings of Jesus of Nazareth – “Where there is no Work, there is no Dignity”


Pope Francis has called for a global economic system that puts people and not "an idol called money" at its heart, drawing on the hardship of his immigrant family as he sympathised with unemployed workers in a part of Italy that has suffered greatly from the recession.

Addressing about 20,000 people in the Sardinian capital of Cagliari, the Argentinian pontiff said that his parents had "lost everything" after they emigrated from Italy and that he understood the suffering that came from joblessness.

"Where there is no work, there is no dignity," he said, in ad-libbed remarks after listening to three locals, including an unemployed worker who spoke of how joblessness "weakens the spirit". But the problem went far beyond the Italian island, said Francis, who has called for wholesale reform of the financial system.

"This is not just a problem of Sardinia; it is not just a problem of Italy or of some countries in Europe," he said. "It is the consequence of a global choice, an economic system which leads to this tragedy; an economic system which has at its centre an idol called money."

The 76-year-old said that God had wanted men and women to be at the heart of the world. "But now, in this ethics-less system, there is an idol at the centre and the world has become the idolater of this 'money-god'," he added.


Spin Doctors of the RC Church – K-Lo Quotes Bobbie Barron Quoting King George of Chicago

Tea Party Spin Doctress K-Lo Cites Cardinal George's Spin Doctor Bobbie Barron – “the wealthy need the poor to stay out of spiritual poverty” – What the Hell Does That Mean???

The Poor should stay poor or jeopardize the salvation (or wealth) of the Rich???


Spin Doctor Bill Donohue (Bill-Doh) Hovering Above Pope Francis – What the Pope Really Really meant

Like his female counterpart K-Lo at National Review, Bill-Doh is there to tell his readers what the Pope really really meant in his most recently published interview appearing in a Jesuit magazine.

Bill-Doh disputes the New York Times spin on the pope’s words.

From someone who has read the entire magazine interview, I suggest that Bill-Doh do the same before he disputes the NYT spin in favor of his own.

This imitation of “journalism” style of Kathryn Jean Lopez (K-Lo) (an “Anglo” and not Hispanic despite the last name) over at the National Review Press Release Dumping Ground online “magazine” site, is quite a step up for Bill.  Keep Up the good work Bill whatever that is.

“The pope also said the Church should be a “home to all” and not a “small chapel.” He did not mean by these words, as the Times alert said, that these remarks were a criticism of focusing on “doctrine, orthodoxy and a limited agenda of moral teachings.” In the previous paragraph, he speaks about “the sanctity of the militant church.” In the same paragraph where he mentions “small chapel,” he cites the “negative behavior” of priests and nuns, saying their conduct is that of an “unfruitful bachelor” and a “spinster.” He did not say what the Times attributed to him.” 
“The pope wants us to reject abortion, and to help women who have had one to find peace with God. He wants us to reject gay marriage, but not gays because they are gay. Kudos to Pope Francis.”
