    Similar to Ross Douthat's criticism on the pope, Marian Tupe of the CATO Institute has a similar criticism here. Everyone should read this:

    The Atlantic

    The line of attack by many on the right is that, "sure I concede that Jesus was a bit of a bleeding heart but he and the pope know nothing of economics."

      I simply cannot understand how anyone can read Evangelii Gaudium, and assert with a straight face that Pope Francis knows nothing about how current western economics works.

      The real issue here is that those disagreeing with Pope Francis are taken back by the pointedness and accuracy of his conclusions, and are worried that a lot of people will hear the Pope, read his writings, and thus may increase their understanding of how neoliberal economics is inherently unfair to the poor and the middle class.

      You meet them halfway with love, peace, and persuasion ~ And expect them to rise for the occasion...
