The Pope, Inequality and Social Evil

    Pope Francis raised a few eyebrows today with a post that equated inequality with social evil.

Regarding Pope Benedict’s “idolatry” comments, well I’ll leave it for Sen. Biden to ensure he doesn’t fall any further for The One. As seen above (and noted here by | Read More »
