Pope's new year address deplores rampant capitalism

Pope Benedict XVI has condemned "unregulated capitalism" for contributing to world tension, in a new year address to worshippers...
"I have been called bad before. Many have said I do things that are not, correct to do. I don't believe in such talk as this. I am nice man, with happy feelings, all of the time!"

Certain American Catholics will not like this. They will be very, very disturbed and perturbed, not to mentioned consternated and trepidated.

G.K. Chesterton would approve.

"Bad art may be forgiven; but to remain unmoved by beauty will not. Doubts may be forgiven; but a lack of wonder will not. Tilting at windmills may be forgiven; but allowing our neighbors to be grinded in the gears will not. Denying the existence of the Creator may be forgiven; but ignoring the glories of creation will not."

He spoke about more than capitalism, but that's something the Post wouldn't want to report.
