If he were at all serious about what he's saying he could lead by example from day one. But that's just not going to happen. The Vatican will retain it's existing wealth and gain more. They won't open their archives, they won't open their books, they won't sacrifice one iota of their wealth to help the poor. But hey, they want you to.
Sucker born every minute.

I like how Libbos denounce Christianity as racist and evil, until the Pope makes a statement that can be vaguely interpreted supporting socialism.
If he is saying that looking after others is the responsibility of the individual rather than the government, except in severe cases, than we share common ground. Any successor to Pope John Paul II has a hard act to follow.
much racism is conducted in the guise of Christianity ... notice what symbol those burning members form at a KKK rallyI like how Libbos denounce Christianity as racist and evil, until the Pope makes a statement that can be vaguely interpreted supporting socialism.
