  • Rush Limbaugh Attacks Pope Francis' Letter as 'Pure Marxism'

    Man, just wait until Rush reads some of the stuff Jesus said.

    Rush Limbaugh Attacks Pope Francis' Letter as 'Pure Marxism'

    Radio commentator Rush Limbaugh attacked Pope Francis' letter, condemning the pope's comments on the "new tyranny" of "unfettered capitalism" as uninformed and somehow planted by the Marxist movement.

    "This is just pure Marxism coming out of the mouth of the pope," Limbaugh declared. The commentator noted that, until this letter, he had admired Pope Francis. Now, however, he must distance himself. On economics, the pope is "totally wrong, I mean dramatically, embarrassingly, puzzlingly wrong."

    In "Evangelii Gaudium," an "apostolic exhortation" sent to the entire Roman Catholic Church, Francis insisted on a renewal of the Catholic Church and a political battle against poverty and inequality to combat a soulless economic system. "The worship of the ancient golden calf (cf. Ex 32:1-35) has returned in a new and ruthless guise in the idolatry of money and the dictatorship of an impersonal economy lacking a truly human purpose," Francis wrote.

    "This totally befuddled me," Limbaugh admitted. "There has been a longstanding tension between the church and communism," he continued, referring to a previous pope, John Paul II, who is widely credited with helping President Ronald Reagan and Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher defeat Soviet communism in the 1980s. In this light, Pope Francis' attack on capitalism seemed out of place.

    Limbaugh insinuated that the letter's true origin could not have been Francis himself. "Somebody has either written this for him or gotten to him," the radio host alleged.
    "Gotten to him." Cue the spooky music.
    Enjoy.

    I always thought it was the other way around; Reagan and Thatcher helped Pope John Paul II.

      Okay, Pope Francis wouldn't approve and Christ sure wouldn't approve,
      but Rush is a total and complete jerk.

      If you read it closely enough, you'll see he's not endoring Marxism.

        I think by "widely credited" they actually mean "credited by wide people."
        Enjoy.

          I think it's hilarious how NOW the far left is hanging on the Pope's every word.
          “I do not aim with my hand; he who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
          I aim with my eye.

          "I do not shoot with my hand; he who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
          I shoot with my mind.

          "I do not kill with my gun; he who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father.
          I kill with my heart.”

              I can't speak for the far left, but I have no idea what the pope said today, and I'm fine with that. But if he starts mud wresting with Ann Coulter, that would be interesting.
              Enjoy.

                He probably told Bibi it was nice to see him.

                  I think he said, "Yes, you can have my autograph. No, I didn't star in Pirates of the Caribbean."

                    Not every word Dave.

                    They go mute on that abortion stuff that Popes talk so much about. Among many other Church teachings.
                    Science that cannot be questioned is propaganda.

                      I don't hang on Pope Francis's every word. I just think it's crappy to
                      accuse him of Marxism.

                      on edit: I honestly believe the problem is that for years, Republicans have acted like God was one of them. It doesn't occur to many people that there is a place for what's considered conservative AND liberal values in RCC. As soon as conservatives stop believing that God's registered with the BOE, they can relax and realize it's not a big deal.

                        The political Christians in the United States will not give up their hard won victory to be God's spokesman easily.

                          Until the left quits aggressively promoting activities that God calls an abomination, they'll have a tough time taking over that role.

                            They should leave it to the pros.

                            Rush Limbaugh's Dominican Stag Party

                            JULY 6--Rush Limbaugh was traveling with four other men--including the producers of the hit show "24"--when he was detained over a mislabeled bottle of Viagra found in his luggage during a Customs search, records show.

                            A Department of Homeland Security passenger manifest shows that Limbaugh and his four buddies flew from the Dominican Republic on a Gulfstream IV jet owned by Premiere Radio Networks, which syndicates his radio program.

                            Limbaugh returned to Palm Beach, Florida on June 26 with Joel Surnow, "24"'s co-creator and executive producer and Howard Gordon, another of the Fox hit's executive producers (Hollywood agent Jeffrey Benson was also part of the Limbaugh quintet).

                            With all those guys in tow, it is unclear what the radio host needed with the 29 100mg Viagra pills listed on a seized property receipt.
                            Enjoy.

                              I don't think the Left promotes Rush who appears to have condemned the righteous, here.

                              Or does Proverbs carry less weight than Leviticus?
