Default Pope Denounces "Cult of Money"

Pope Francis has attacked the “dictatorship” of the global financial system and warned that the “cult of money” was making life a misery for millions.

“While the income of a minority is increasing exponentially, that of the majority is crumbling.”

He said free-market capitalism had created a “tyranny” and that human beings were being judged purely by their ability to consume goods.

As a lapsed Catholic (long, long ago) the pontificate and church mean little to me, but I have to admit this Pope is a refreshing new voice on the world stage.

He brings up the issue that every politician, in every country, is too gutless, or too "owned" to mention.
