Rush Limbaugh was right.
In November 2013 Rush Limbaugh blasted Pope Francis for his anti-capitalist economic statements. Rush Limbaugh admitted being “befuddled” by the harsh words about “unfettered capitalism” released by Pope Francis.
“If it weren’t for capitalism I don’t know where the Catholic Church would be?” The Pope has gone beyond Catholicism here… This is just pure Marxism coming out of the mouth of the Pope.”
Rush was right.
Two weeks ago atheist Michael Moore had a private audience with the Argentine pope.
Moore says Pope Francis told him capitalism was a sin.
If true, this is quite a switch from Pope John Paul II who spoke out against Communism and understood Capitalism is the most potent antidote to poverty.
The Daily Mail reported:
Pope Francis apparently told US filmmaker Michael Moore that capitalism is a sin and that the ‘poor must always come first’ when they met recently in the Vatican City.
Michael Moore, 64, told Late Night with Seth Meyers that he met the Pope two weeks ago and he made the comments when Moore asked him about income inequality.
‘I went to the weekly audience, and then he asked to speak to me privately. It was an amazing moment, and I asked him if I could ask him a question,’ Moore said.
‘And he said, “Yes,”‘ Moore said, recounting his visit with the pope last month.
‘And I said, “Do you believe that an economic system that benefits the few, the wealthy at the expense of the many is a sin?”
‘He said to me, “Si” in Italian. And I said, “So you believe capitalism, the capitalism we have now is a sin?” He goes, “Yes, it is.” He said, “The poor must always come first.”‘
The Bowling for Columbine documentary maker described Pope Francis as a humorous figure and claimed that the Argentinian-born Pontiff asked if Moore would pray for him.
Amen. Neither Michael Moore’s nor the Pope’s economics did this. pic.twitter.com/yV0JNJ0xmM
