I'm really starting to like this Pope, because he's rocking the boat. I might not be onboard with everything he states but the very fact that he
doesn't seem content in towing the line the Catholic church has been unwinding for centuries makes me appreciate him more. I'd almost describe him
as "the first radical Pope".
That being said, I can't say I disagree with him on this one in principal. As far as I am concerned there IS a massive global wealth disparity
that is wreaking increasing havoc on the societal fabric of both developed and underdeveloped nations. And to be fair from what I read in the article
he was merely asking the UN to promote this idea, rather than force it is an agenda upon other nations (which the UN would never be able to do,
However the thing which prevents me from fully believing or supporting this Pope's view on capitalism and wealth distribution is that the Catholic
Church is quite possibly one of the wealthiest entities on the planet. If you're going to talk the talk, you'd better walk the walk as well, and
crack open the vault of the Vatican Bank and toss some coins around to the poor.
Until that happens and although I like this new Pope, I'll take his views and words with a little grain of salt.
