Pope's new year address deplores rampant capitalism
Pope Benedict XVI has condemned "unregulated capitalism" for contributing to world tension, in a new year address to worshippers.

The Pope also thanked the world's peacemakers and said humanity had "an innate vocation for peace".

The Roman Catholic Church leader spoke at a Mass in the Vatican, then greeted a crowd outside St Peter's Basilica.

He deplored "hotbeds of tension and conflict caused by growing instances of inequality between rich and poor".

As in Rome of yore, Evangelical Protestantism fell not from the barbarians at the door but by the termites in the floor.

As Spurgeon predicted: "You can write 'Damnation' in the dust on your Bibles."

Sloth kills good religion.

Here we have the remarkable event of a Presbyterian minister [Tim Keller] promoting The Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Jesuit Order who devoted his life to the destruction of the [Protestant] Reformation.

It is important for us to understand that the Jesuit Order, given papal authority in 1540, was committed to the restoration of the authority of the Roman Catholic Church by ruthlessly destroying the Protestant Reformation. With their vows of total obedience to the Pope and their strict military style training, the Jesuits became feared across Europe as the “storm-troopers” of the Catholic Church. They correctly perceived that the Protestant doctrine of Scripture, which teaches that the Word of God is the sole basis of spiritual truth and sufficient for all matters of doctrine and conduct, fatally undermined the dogmas and traditions of Rome. And so a fierce antagonism has always existed between Bible-believing Christianity and Roman Catholicism.

Yep, it sure is important in these last days to know what on earth is going on.

The Reformed Seminary president makes New Year's predictions for the Reformed movement including:

"Interestingly, in 1960, Arthur Schlesinger said the biggest division in American life was between Protestants and Catholics. In 2013 it is between Traditionalists and Progressives. But the bandwidth of these groups has expanded. In the days ahead, expect to hear, not just of “Evangelicals and Catholics together [John 17],” but of Evangelicals, Jews, Mormons, Catholics and perhaps even Muslims together! All of these groups have strong traditionalist elements."

PS, the Vatican has holdings, properties, priceless art and jewels that makes it fabulously wealthy beyond belief. The RC church tries to cry poverty, but a short investigation proves that to be just one more deception. The Pope's vestments alone could feed a 3rd world country. The fish god hat he wears carrys a very hefty price and I wish I could remember the number. I want to say 100, 000 but I really can't remember.
Anyway, below is a link to help out because I won't have the space here to list everything. I've been aware of the Vatican's financial state for some time and I'm more than happy to pass it along because I cringe when people give them money and beg for money that goes toward the legal councils for all of the pedophile priests.
Why are there fewer entering into seminary these days? My opinion is that because the homosexuals know that they no longer have the free reign that they used to.

Yes the pope would rather see money made by lies and theft just as the so called church has done for centuries. I still have to wonder about the fifty dollars my grandmother gave to a priest to have a mass said for my great grandfather to get his
soul out of hell.....or purgatory. Thank God for his written word and the true salvation in Christ alone! The Catholic. Church has investments in big business all over the world. I heard a priest tell on Tv once they even produced cigarettes. And justified it by saying they added warning labels to them. (This was in a foreign country) The same priest also said they owned Kimberley Clark....at that time!

I'm not even going to use the word, 'pope'. I've already proved that he has no right to exist.
I'm not sure if I understand this. Is this guy referring to leaders who strip the people of their wealth, and arrogate it to themselves; or those who through hard work and a knowledge of what to do with their money, far outdistance their fellows?

Actually the article also contained a link refuting the figures that the author used. The underling assumption to all this is that the upper 1% don't deserve the fruits of their labors. That there is some how a ceiling that prohibits others joining their ranks. (because we all know that Steve Jobs and Bill Gates were always multi-billionaires--read The Millionaire Next Door by Stanley and Danko ) The presidents policies are the one thing that is suppressing the middle class and the poor. Of course he wants that because then they turn to the government for assistance. Which is why we have the highest levels of people on government assistance.

I'm sure he would. Moreover, many of MacArthur's reforms were undone by the Truman Cabinet. Japan still ended up with industrial combines called keiretsu, surely something he would scorn if proposed as exemplary for our country.

BTW, I forgot to point out that he commits the fallacy of “cum hoc ergo propter hoc” in trying to relate exec pay ratios to economic prosperity.

Labor/management pay differential is more Marxist/Catholic/Progressive nonsense. Why 531:1 is bad, but not 10:1, Jim cannot say, for there is nothing written under Heaven defining what is fair & what is not.

Or let us grant there are companies with overpaid managers. But that is their problem, not a matter for politicians or bureaucrats.

Actually, UPS, there is a good defense for that article in another magazine, Inequality: The 1% solution | The Economist.

It was pointed out long ago, when Japan was an economic miracle, they were paid a 10 to 1 ratio of the average worker, I believe this article points out that it is like 531 to 1 or more , as this article points out CEOs Are Overpaid. It really time to trim the sails of these high-flyers! Mixed metaphor, but I think you get the idea.

To get more directly to the point while I agree with the 1st poster's assessment of His Unholiness, and others for that matter, he and others are also using,
Argumentum Ad Hominem wrote:
An ad hominem (Latin for "to the man"), short for argumentum ad hominem, is an argument made personally against an opponent instead of against their argument.[1] Ad hominem reasoning is normally described as an informal fallacy,[2][3][4] more precisely an irrelevance
excerpt from, Ad hominem

Remember this Unholiness made a very accurate assessment of Islam,

Emperor Manual II Paleologos of the Byzantine Empire wrote:
Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.
which he quickly denied.

But just like MacArthur realized there was too much wealth and land concentrated in too few hands in Japan, and he tried to remedy this we should at least consider, Of the 1%, by the 1%, for the 1%.

Pope Benedict XVI has condemned "unregulated capitalism"

Does this imply he endorses unlimited government?

Hypocrisy aside, Rome has *never* been comfortable with economic liberty & limited gov't, & has always supported the Progressive program. This is due to the philosophy of Thomas Aquinas. The Jesuit order is particularly aggressive in promoting it (I'm not talking conspiracies – just check out their web site).

Conservatives who think otherwise (e.g. the “Christian Right” & Catholic contributors to National Review) are delusional.

The apostate, blasphemous, anti-Christ office of the pope is making a statement about the rich and poor? Where is it in the Bible that a "servant" of Christ should live in gross opulence and luxury as the pope? He rides around in a six figure bullet proof MERCEDES. This man, like all men who would assume this office, is an affront to God and His truth. May God grant him repentance.
