(Reuters) - Pope Francis called for renewal of the Roman Catholic Church and attacked unfettered capitalism as "a new tyranny", urging global leaders to fight poverty and growing inequality in the first major work he has authored alone as pontiff.

The 84-page document, known as an apostolic exhortation, amounted to an official platform for his papacy, building on views he has aired in sermons and remarks since he became the first non-European pontiff in 1,300 years in March.

In it, Francis went further than previous comments criticizing the global economic system, attacking the "idolatry of money" and beseeching politicians to guarantee all citizens "dignified work, education and healthcare".

It's really interesting to me to think of the history of the shifting alliances between the public, the government, organized religion and business.

The conservatives who hate Catholics anyway are blasting the Pope for being too liberal. Is there anything these people like or agree with? Sarah Palin was quoted as saying he was way too liberal

Same Pope who has called for Christians to go easier on, and be more respectful to, gay people and atheists. Yeah, I like him -- he seems to actually be bent on following the teachings of his religion, rather than twisting it around to justify greed and hate.

I also like that he reminds me of Jim Nabors. (Gomer)

Shocked 


I have to admit, I am starting to like him too.  This is bothering me; I just hope nothing crawls out of the cupboard to make me change my mind again.

Birth control PREVENTS abortion. Why can't they see that?
