Rush Limbaugh blasts Pope Francis’ latest statement


limbaugh-famous-missourians(NY Daily News) Rush Limbaugh is going after Pope Francis just in time for the Christmas season.

The outspoken conservative pundit blasted the Pope this week after the pontiff released a new 50,000 word document, titled “Evangelli Gaudium” (The Joy of Gospel), calling for church reforms and criticizing certain ideas of capitalism.

Limbaugh, whose nationally syndicated radio show is no stranger to controversial rhetoric, called Francis’ latest statement “pure Marxism.”

Limbaugh’s own statement, titled “It’s Sad How Wrong Pope Francis Is (Unless It’s A Deliberate Mistranslation By Leftists)“ goes on to question whether the pontiff was actually the author of the document.

“It’s sad because this pope makes it very clear he doesn’t know what he’s talking about when it comes to capitalism and socialism and so forth,” Limbaugh wrote.

“But regardless, what this is, somebody has either written this for him or gotten to him,” Limbaugh added. “This is just pure Marxism coming out of the mouth of the Pope.” [more]

    The Pope’s comment are border line Marxism … look up the definition. The real question is why are people looking at that as being a pejorative or derogatory term?? Marxism describes an economic condition in the same way capitalism is another economic system. If there is “run a way” capitalism, I wish the Pope would have cited examples. One has to wonder if he simply used the wrong nomenclature.

  3. Linda Grady says:

    Clearly, Rush has no understanding of true Christianity – which means as per the Epistles, or letters written by the Apostles and, especially, St.Paul (who was NOT one of the 12) to the early Christian Communities. Christianity then meant striving toward a utopian community where ALL would share EVERYTHING, with the rich as well as the poor giving ALL their possessions to the Community and everyone’s wealth would be divided, not necessarily equally, but by giving the most to those most in need! Ummm, I think Christ and his early followers originated these ideas long before Marx! And, by the way, haven’t we who call ourselves Christian gotten pathetically away from this beautiful ideal? Let’s just ignore Rush; he’s ignorant and only deserving of our prayers. Has anyone told him yet that it’s poor form to argue about Christianity with the Pope?

    Oh, come, come now. Rush Limbaugh is good entertainment. Nobody really takes him seriously! //

    Some of the comments here say that being a Catholic in good conscience they could not vote for a Republican or some say they couldn’t vote for a Democrat. I hate to delusion True Believers (politician talk), but the party a politician belongs to doesn’t really mean much. If you haven’t seen that Netflix series, House of Cards, with Kevin Spacey, I’d recommend you watch it. This is the “truth” of what goes on in Washington — really dark — politicians using people to get their agenda through, whatever it takes. You’ll be gripped to your t.v. set, I promise!

    • Recovering Catholic says:

      To be completely fair, Pope Francis IS a little bit too much to the left.

    • sharon says:

      Unfortunately, RC, you are wrong. Many, may I repeat, many take him seriously. They believe like him but don’t have the platform he has. Much goes on in the world but our “job” as Christ loving Christians and followers, is to strive to live as he did.

  5. Rosemarie says:

    Limbaugh spends so much time and energy trying to prove he is worthy of his ridiculous behavior and comments- he must be exhausted! A wise man Marcus Aurelius years ago said “put and end once and for all to this discussion of what a good man SHOULD be and BE ONE one! Listen up Rush !!!

    As a Catholic in good conscience I could not be a democrat today who favors abortion and same sex marriage. I vote for the candidates views that are in agreement with church teaching. This is what guides my vote not a political party.
    Pope Francis is a saintly pope no doubt. Unfortunately he is not a universalist as previous popes have been. Unfortunately he is an Argentinian and not a universalist. In time he will have his eyes opened to the global world. Don’t condem him but pray for him.

    • Catholic Lady says:

      I’m not sure that you know what you are talking about Bart. How do you know that Pope Francis is not a universalist? What makes you think that his eyes need to be opened? To what?

  7. Florian says:

    With a single shot from his muzzle-loader, Rush Limbaugh thinks he has just taken out President Omaba and Pope Francis. What he has actually done is to puncture his very own hot-air balloon with a nasty hole that can’t be repaired. His meanness won’t pass for comic relief anymore, if it ever did.

  8. Concerned says:

    Limbaugh must be back on those drugs. Time for another stint in rehab and putting the blame on someone else. What a loser!

  9. Tony says:

    As a Catholic I could not in conscience be a Republican because of their attitude towards and treatment of the poor and the homeless.

  10. a christian says:

    Sometimes, one can be well defined by who his enemies are. Our pope is a living saint. Limbaugh is lying, overly entitled, drug fiend who makes millions as a radio mouthfoamer.

  11. Paul says:

    Limbaugh is an idiot looking for some free quick publicity. Spiritual leaders, like Pope Francis, challenge us to see the poor. He is not an economist.
