Pope Francis

The Catholic Church has always been good on the issues of poverty and inequality, at least in terms of rhetoric. Pope Francis has recently made some strong statements that continue that tradition, arguing against greed and indifference. This pope does exude a greater leftist air, I suppose, and the right-wing has not been content to simply ignore these recent statements. Even Rush Limbaugh has come out to defend the forces of capitalism: "It's sad because this pope makes it very clear he doesn't know what he's talking about when it comes to capitalism and socialism and so forth.... This is just pure Marxism coming out of the mouth of the Pope."
