Us socialists are everywhere, I’m telling you.

Why do I think I’d take the Pope’s assertions of socialism more seriously if all Catholics had equitable living conditions? The CHURCH is supposed to be socialist in internal structure. For the head of the Church to live in splendor while parishioners go hungry means that he really is dropping the ball on socialism.

I was joking about his socialist leanings, Kat, for the reasons you outline. This guy is known as a hardcore Cold Warrior within the friendly confines — he was instrumental in purging liberation theologians (who he thought were working in league with Communist insurgents because they were taking their mission to serve the poor far too seriously). So no, he’s by no stretch of the imagination actually a socialist nor is he in sympathy with socialism as a political philosophy.
