Nor from Pope Francis - that was a mis-translation.

The application in this encyclical to the US would be towards those capitalists who profit from abortion an porn and those who accumulate great wealth but give nothing back.

Evangelii Gaudium was written in Spanish by an Argentinean. The phrase “trickle down” is NOT in the Spanish version. That came from a translation by a writer for the English left wing paper, The Guardian, I believe. Remember that Pope Francis is an Argentinean. There economic system is not free market but more like crony capitalism. It is more fascist than free market. I read an interesting article at a Catholic web site a few days ago that went into greater detail on Evangelii Gaudium. I neglected to book mark it and haven’t been able to find it. It might be at http://www.crisismagazine.com/

Anytime that you read something that a pope said in a secular, particularly left leaning, publication; you should find a Catholic site and find out what he really said.

The bible condemns the PRACTICE of homosexuality. I don't think it condemns the inclination. The individual must control their actions and lustful thoughts.
The problem is that the muslims are killing the Christians.
It is not available here in KY. It can be purchased across the Ohio in Indiana.

I guess you have to get out the code book to figure out this post. I have misplaced mine but I presume that the poster's reference to ".. attacks on women's rights.." refers to the attempts to tell people that they can't kill their children. I'm not really sure about the other charges. Somebody help me.
I am presuming that you are hinting that Catholics don’t read the Bible? No offense but I’m Catholic and I read the Bible everyday as do many other Catholics. Of course, may Catholics don’t read it. Neither do some Baptists, Presbyterians, Methodists and other Christians. Perhaps Bill doesn’t either but he does hear it at Mass every Sunday. Remember “faith comes from what is heard”. My objection to Bill’s comments is that he implied that the street preacher was “getting in people’s faces”. I didn’t see that the preacher was doing that. He just seemed to be street corner preaching. There is a right to speak. There is not a right to not be offended.
You bring up the Bible and then throw out part of it. The letters of Paul are part of the Bible. Furthermore, what makes you think that Jesus didn’t “have a problem” with homosexual activity? Because it isn’t mentioned in the Gospels? Much of what Jesus did isn’t in the Gospels. It says so in the Gospels (see John 21). Jesus told the woman caught in adultery to “go and sin no more”. So He is against adultery but ok with sodomy?
Why is it that if something works and improves economic opportunity for everone, its still bad just because it also helps the rich?
