Pope Francis can’t help himself.

The left-wing Pope continues to defy Church orthodoxy.

And now he’s caused an uproar with his outrageous comments.

Pope Francis has attracted heavy criticism from his earliest days as Pontiff.

Rush Limbaugh labeled him a Marxist when he released a document attacking capitalism.

CNN reports:

“Limbaugh blasted the pontiff on Wednesday, a day after Francis released “Evangelii Gaudium” (The Joy of the Gospel), a 50,000-word statement that calls for church reform and castigates elements of modern capitalism.

Limbaugh’s segment, now online and entitled “It’s Sad How Wrong Pope Francis Is (Unless It’s a Deliberate Mistranslation By Leftists),” takes direct aim at the pope’s economic views, calling them “dramatically, embarrassingly, puzzlingly wrong.”

But outrage from American Catholics over his attempts to turn the Church into a liberal activist group has not deterred the Pope.

He is still advocating for leftist economic policies that will upend Western capitalism.

The Pope launched another broadside against free market economics when he spoke about a new, more cooperative way of life and praised labor unions as “prophetic.”

Vox reports:

“In an audience at the Vatican with the Confederation of Trade Unions in Italy, the pope presented a more holistic — and some may say compassionate — alternative to Pence’s vision of the free market. Calling work a form of “civil love,” the pope described his vision of harmonious cooperation, in which the individual participates in meaningful work as part of a shared whole.

“If we think of the person without work, we are saying something partial, incomplete, because the person is fully realized when he or she becomes a worker: Because the individual becomes a person when he or she opens up to others, to social life, when he or she thrives in work,” he said. He spoke of a “new, human social pact, a new social pact for labor,” that would allow older workers to retire even as it allowed the young to find a trade (youth unemployment is a particular issue in Italy).

Francis praised unions on spiritual grounds, calling them “prophetic” institutions that give “a voice to those who have none, denounces those who would [as in the Biblical Book of Amos] ‘sell the needy for a pair of sandals’ … unmasks the powerful who trample the rights of the most vulnerable workers, defends the cause of the foreigner, the least, the discarded. … But in our advanced capitalist societies, the union risks losing its prophetic nature, and becoming too similar to the institutions and powers that it should instead criticize.”

He also criticized the idea of a purely “market economy,” praising instead a “social market economy” balancing the goals of business with care for those “outside the walls” of industry, meaning those denied work by physical infirmity or condition, or those who, as immigrants, do not have the right to work.

“The capitalism of our time does not understand the value of the trade union,” Francis added, “because it has forgotten the social nature of the economy, of the business.”

If Francis had his way, capitalism – which has created the highest standard of living in human history – would give way to open borders and socialism.

It would be nothing less than a new world order.
