Can You Define Unbridled?

Scrolling through my various social media sites I see all sorts of positive posts from my lefty friends praising Pope Francis for his harsh words against capitalism. In an article by by Philip Pullella and Daniela Desantis written on July 11th they said Francis called on world leaders  “to shun policies that “sacrifice human lives on the altar of money and profit.”

He left out the part about making profits the Vatican way. In a report on the Holy Fiscal Year of 2014 the profits of the Vatican soared to 76 million dollars. More than twenty times to the previous year.

A New York Times article written by Gaia Pianigiani on May 25th states, “Jean-Baptiste de Franssu, the bank’s president, said that its long-term strategic plan prioritized the interests of more than 15,000 clients while trying to provide adequate return during a period of ultralow interest rates in Europe.

“The main focus is on fundamentally improving our overall client service standards and further professionalizing our asset management services,” Mr. de Franssu said in a statement.”

So I guess this isn’t the type of unbridled capitalism Pope Francis is complaining about. That’s a different kind.

Francis said in Bolivia, “Putting bread on the table, putting a roof over the heads of one’s children, giving them health and an education, these are essential for human dignity.”

Speaking of children, Cardinal Pell, the Vatican Financial Chief appointed by Francis is being called back to his home in Australia to testify in the case of pedophile priest Gerald Ridsdale, who has abused at least 50 boys. One being his own nephew, whom Pell bribed to keep quiet about the abuse. 

Much like Cardinal Dolan in New York, who as a Bishop in Milwaukee, hid assets and filed for bankruptcy to keep them from being used in a civil suit against them by sexual abuse survivors. Which failed and now the Archdiocese is challenging trying to bring the case to the Supreme Court. 

Meanwhile back in Bolivia Francis said, “Corruption is the plague, it’s the gangrene of society.”

He should know. He doesn’t have to look far to find it.
