The new Pope has put his name on an alarming socialist-oriented document that fails to grasp the nature of the Islamic challenge to our survival.
The new Papal document says:
Each meaningful economic decision made in one part of the world has repercussions everywhere else; consequently, no government can act without regard for shared responsibility. Indeed, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find local solutions for enormous global problems which overwhelm local politics with difficulties to resolve. If we really want to achieve a healthy world economy, what is needed at this juncture of history is a more efficient way of interacting which, with due regard for the sovereignty of each nation, ensures the economic well-being of all countries, not just of a few.
A “more efficient way of interacting?”
This is consistent with the Roman Catholic Church’s push for world government.

Pope Francis also says:
We Christians should embrace with affection and respect Muslim immigrants to our countries in the same way that we hope and ask to be received and respected in countries of Islamic tradition. I ask and I humbly entreat those countries to grant Christians freedom to worship and to practice their faith, in light of the freedom which followers of Islam enjoy in Western countries! Faced with disconcerting episodes of violent fundamentalism, our respect for true followers of Islam should lead us to avoid hateful generalizations, for authentic Islam and the proper reading of the Koran are opposed to every form of violence.
The proper reading of the Koran is that it is non-violent?
I ask and I humbly entreat those [Islamic] countries to grant Christians freedom to worship and to practice their faith, in light of the freedom which followers of Islam enjoy in Western countries!
Humbly? We are politely asking those countries to accommodate Christians? Seriously?
The Pope also says:
In our time humanity is experiencing a turning-point in its history, as we can see from the advances being made in so many fields. We can only praise the steps being taken to improve people’s welfare in areas such as health care, education and communications.
In the context of his praise for the power of government, it sounds like an endorsement of Obamacare.
The U.S. Catholic Bishops were already supporters of socialized medicine.
