Memo to Pope Francis

stuff I think about                                                          

I addressed this in January (Just My Opinion), and I stand by it. Or, more profanely.

  • Pope Francis Confesses He Knows Little about the Economy

    In a striking series of admissions, Pope Francis told journalists on the flight back to Rome from Paraguay that he has an aversion to the economy, which he does not understand very well, and that he has neglected the middle class. On the plane, journalists asked the Pope his opinion of the economic situation in Greece and its relation to the rest of the European Union.

It conflates our individual moral duty to be charitable (a good thing), with govt welfare programs (bad evil de-humanizing things)

I promise to stay out of the Religion Business if the Pope will mind His Own Fawking Business. We already have an Idiot Pretender in Chief resident here, meddling in everything that He does not understand. I need no advice from the Vatican on Economics, Morals or Government.

If He was doing his job, Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden would have been Excommunicated by now.
