Francis’ oppressive tolerance and totalitarian love for humanity – and the way it delivers roundhouse kick after roundhouse kick to the hypocrisy of American “Christians” is endlessly entertaining to me. I daresay, if he had been the Pope when George Bush concocted a pretext to bomb the shit out of Iraq simply because he had a hard on to bomb Iraq – this Pope might have had a few words to say about it.

VATICAN CITY – Pope Francis said in the first peace message of his pontificate that huge salaries and bonuses are symptoms of an economy based on greed and inequality and called again for nations to narrow the wealth gap.
In his message for the Roman Catholic Church’s World Day of Peace, marked around the world on January 1, he also called for sharing of wealth and for nations to shrink the gap between rich and poor, more of whom are getting only “crumbs.”
“The grave financial and economic crises of the present time … have pushed man to seek satisfaction, happiness and security in consumption and earnings out of all proportion to the principles of a sound economy,” he said.
