The Pope Just Called For A Total Communist Revolution…
The current Pope, Francis, has drawn criticism for his anti-capitalist beliefs and apparent support for socialism.
The Gateway Pundit's Joe Hoft reports that Pope Francis is calling for a new economic system that creates "food, health, economic and social rights for all," which many see as a push for socialism.
Francis' recent comments on the need to reform the United Nations have also raised eyebrows. In an extract of his new book, Francis said that the pandemic and the Ukraine war exposed the UN's limits, and that it is no longer fit for "new realities." He also denounced the unequal distribution of vaccines as a "glaring example" of the law of the strongest prevailing over solidarity.
Meanwhile, Hans Despain, reporting for Yahoo, praises Francis' recent actions as the "eminent voice of the economically destitute and the environment." Since being elected to the papacy, Francis has called for a new economic system that better provides for the global poor, along with guaranteed work and land.
Francis is also a strong proponent of environmentalism, warning that climate change is displacing people, increasing poverty, and contributing to the refugee crisis. He sees economic destitution and environmental destruction as symbiotically linked, and says that the world's poor, who are least responsible for climate change, are most vulnerable and already suffering its impact.
While it is not fair to compare Francis to Pope Pius XII, who looked the other way during the Holocaust, some critics worry about the direction Francis is taking the Catholic Church. As a self-proclaimed anti-capitalist, Francis appears to reject the principles of individual liberty that are central to many conservative and libertarian beliefs. Only time will tell what impact Francis' economic and environmental beliefs will have on the Church and the world at large.
