Pope condemns 'pagan' love of money, power
Benedict leads more than 250,000 Catholics in outdoor Mass in Paris


PARIS - Pope Benedict XVI condemned unbridled “pagan” passion for power, possessions and money as a modern-day plague Saturday as he led more than a quarter of a million Catholics in an outdoor Mass in Paris.

Benedict was making his first visit as pontiff to the French capital, renowned for its luxury goods, fashion sense and cultural riches.

“Has not our modern world created its own idols?” Benedict said in his homily, and wondered aloud whether people have “imitated, perhaps inadvertently, the pagans of antiquity?”

Hey pope - where's the damn collection plate? Or do you want us to ask about "god's banker" and the ties to some of the most corrupt people in the world?
