    The pope is naive on this issue but digsbe isn't? LOL ok buddy.

    Yes, it is quite attractive and an interesting new concept.

    It's a good thing his message seems to be geared towards people doing this on a personal level and not calling on government to do it.

    Why would that be so implausible? Is the Pope infallible?

    You think it's easy to become a pope? If I'm gonna take a stab at who is more well-read, the pope or some random internet poster, I'm picking the pope and chances are pretty good that I'm right.

    Also, the fact is that the pope is right, and this is coming from a conservative.

    I'll pick the working stiff over the the preacher whoses never worked a day in his life, everytime. It reminds me of the saying: those who can, do. Those who can't, teach.

    You don't think the pope has worked a day in his life?

    No words, man.

    I'm by no means a fan of the Catholic Church. It's a corrupt group of old men presiding over who gets rich from the poor. However, I'm definitely an ideological fan of this pope. Though I doubt he'll restore the church in his lifetime, I do find him to be far more open to change than his predecessors. He's tackling internal issues. He's attacking a society that sees wealth as a goal and not a means. I definitely like him.
    Yeah, while they sit in their solid gold Vatican City. It's pathetic and hypocritical. Let him sell Vatican City and give to the poor before judging the rest of us.
