The Pope --- Whooping It Up.


:Pope Benedict XVI gestures to well-wishers as he arrives at the College des Bernardins in Paris to deliver a speech on faith and culture:

This Pope has been called a staunch "defender of traditional Catholic values." I've always believed we create what we defend against.

Pope condemns love of money, power - The Vatican- msnbc.com

To sum up his talk -- Love of money is the root of all evil. And. It's time to stop creating "idols" and praying to them.

I take exception with the use of the word condemns. In any capacity.

As a leader of one of the largest faithful organizations in existence today, I think the Pope is missing the mark. He should be focusing on extending love, not condemnation to those who feel they need to find it in money and things.

Ciao bella!
