    I think Snowden made more of an impact on the world.

    To return would infer a prior presence.

    Sure, that's true and he should have been the pick. But THIS pope is unique and well liked and Time magazine has steered clear of 'perceived' bad guys since they put Khomeini on the cover in 79'

The Pope is right, I'm an atheist and even I like this guy.
    Actually he said unfettered capitalism which does not even exist these days so he was either blowing smoke out of his ass or implying America has unfettered capitalism. I pick door number 2.

    Good to have a Pope at the positive end of media coverage once again. May it last.

    IMO he implied we have unfettered capitalism in this country. Who else could he be referring to if not us, the bastion of capitalism.

    As a Catholic, you're supposed to have condemnation of capitalism's moral dilemma and its other cultural contradictions.
