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.
