    Love the way the “religious right” is attacking the Pope with all their “Christian charity”. Limbaugh’s livid, great.

    Duh. Scrooge, read the economic statistics since the Reagan ‘Revolution,’ you won’t need the Pope to tell you. Trickle down econ hasn’t done, and will NOT do, what it claims. Even RepublCons have stopped saying so. Listen to the Glen Gold Fox Rush Standard ‘News.’ Those folks aren’t talking Laffer Curves any more. It’s me me me now, mine mine mine, like Smaug in his lair drooling fire over a hoard of gilt teacups. Pathetic.

    So what’s a rabid right-wing (for the New York Times) Roman Catholic going to do?

    If memory serves Jesus said give to Caesar what is Caesar’s. So the rich keep their money and dont get into heaven while the poor will be allowed in per the word of Jesus

    “…[S]ome people continue to defend trickle-down theories which assume that economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness in the world. This opinion, which has never been confirmed by the facts, expresses a crude and naïve trust in the goodness of those wielding economic power and in the sacralized workings of the prevailing economic system. Meanwhile, the excluded are still waiting.”
    —Pope Francis

    Of course a lot of the Republicans would still rather believe St. Ronnie’s hogwash then actually accept the truth!

    @masterskrain

    And “the truth” as you know it masterskrain is…?

    “Trickle-Down” economics DON’T work!
    The Rich get richer, and the poor get screwed!
    The gap between the rich and the poor is now at it’s highest point since Oct. 1929, and we ALL know what happened then…

    The “eye of the needle” comment refers to a narrow city gate which would-be city entrants had to pass through. The gate was so confining that weapons could not be wielded while passing through it, so bad apples would have no chance to work any ill. The gate was called “the eye of the needle,” and a camel was far, far too large to pass through it.

    There is practically no institution on the planet with more financial resources than the Catholic Church. And yet, they continue to beg on the streets and apply political and social pressure to get even more. They should be ashamed.

    “The gap between the rich and the poor is now at it’s highest point since Oct. 1929,”

    Uh, no it’s not, by practically any unit of measure. Saying it’s so doesn’t make it true.

    In the full exhortation, the Pope attributes a godless greed for profit at the expense of other people as the particular kind of free market that fails. He also spoke of corrupt governments, so they’re not off the hook either. http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/francesco/apost_exhortations/documents/papa-francesco_esortazione-ap_20131124_evangelii-gaudium_en.html

    Smartest thing Poppy Bush ever said, calling Trickle-Down “Voodoo Economics”.
