Bad News for Catholic Republicans…

Pope Francis condemns austerity:

“And here I think of the difficulties that, in various countries, today afflict the world of work and businesses,” he told tens of thousands people gathered for his weekly general audience in St. Peter’s Square.

“I think of how many, and not just young people, are unemployed, many times due to a purely economic conception of society, which seeks selfish profit, beyond the parameters of social justice. I wish to extend an invitation to solidarity to everyone, and I would like to encourage those in public office to make every effort to give new impetus to employment.”
