LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:


by Micah J. Fleck

Pope Francis wrote a public letter to newly sworn-in president of the United States, Donald J. Trump, making an appeal to redistribution wealth and prosperity to all people, including the poor, and called the American tradition of looking out for its people a “rich” one full of “advancement for human dignity.”

Time reports:

Pope Francis sent Donald Trump a message on the day of his inauguration as the 45th President of the United States. The Pope said he hopes that under Trump’s leadership, “America’s stature [will] continue to be measured above all by its concern for the poor.”

“At a time when our human family is beset by grave humanitarian crises demanding far-sighted and united political responses, I pray that our decisions will be guided by the rich spiritual and ethical values that have shaped the history of the American people and your nation’s commitment to the advancement of human dignity and freedom worldwide,” he wrote.

Since Vatican City seems so concerned with its poorest citizens by making sure all the wealth in The Vatican itself stays put, I’m sure President Trump will take the Pope’s words very closely to heart, indeed.

    The Pope needs to stop coveting. The government needs to stop stealing. Trump needs to worry about the American worker not the American takers.
