  •  President Obama has enacted policies to. (0+ / 0-)

    ....better redistribute wealth in this country.

    Yet, the median income is down from 2008 to the present.

    Change takes time.

    And I'd rather have Pope Francisco leading the Catholic Church than someone who hasn't spent so much time with the desamparados.

    •  2009 (0+ / 0-)

      Obama wasn't president until 2009. And his policies didn't have any effect except to slow the collapse to a halt before reversing it before 2010.

      Bergoglio had decades to change his parish, and Argentina. How about in his parish?

      I don't think you're talking about economics, math, facts or logic. I think you're just hugging a new pope.

    •  The Church uses the poor as its raison d'etre (0+ / 0-)

      When the Catholic Church shakes off its luxury and lives among the poor sharing their lives and helping them escape poverty then I'll pay attention.

    •  I agree. Francis' simplicity is a vast improvement (1+ / 0-)

      over Benedict's love of conspicuous excess in his garments.
      I also agree that Francis' gestures towards the poor are a better inspiration for all of us than his predecessor's.
