    I am Catholic, and frankly he is making alot of people uncomfortable by continuing to talk about this.

    I think it is great however, because if you are uncomfortable it is because what he is saying is resonating with you.

    People are uncomfortable because the next logical step is what is to be done about it.

    Some (like Willard) don't think it should be talked about in the open because it is people like him that might have to give some back.

    Too many people think just ignoring or not talking about it will make the issue cease to exist, and they can go back to living their great lives without having to be made to feel bad because they are successful.

    I have never been a subscriber to the "Cafeteria Catholic" view where you pick and choose the parts that make you feel good and ignore that stuff that you don't like.

    In this case those that think doing anything about societal inequality has nothing to do with faith need to re-examine what the Pope is trying to tell us.
