VATICAN CITY (AP) -- Pope Francis called Friday for governments to redistribute wealth and benefits to the poor in a new spirit of generosity to help curb the "economy of exclusion" that is taking hold today.

Francis made the appeal during a speech to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the heads of major U.N. agencies who met in Rome this week.

Latin America's first pope has frequently lashed out at the injustices of capitalism and the global economic system. On Friday, Francis called for the United Nations to promote a "worldwide ethical mobilization" of solidarity with the poor.
Clearly, the leader of the Catholic Church is a marxist and doesn't understand how to raise people out of poverty. I feel less and less Catholic each time this guy opens his pie hole.

Legitimate wealth redistribution = wealth tax

That's not necessary.

If the Pope wants to make a difference he should show an example and give away some of the church's money to poor

Some? They should actually read the bible and give away it all since they apparently are a religion formed on the teachings of Christ.

So when is the Vatican going to redistribute it's wealth?

How about start from the Vatican? If anyone in Vatican can show how to survive without a penny, then that will be the turning point of mankind. It takes only one LIGHT to light darkness.

Don't need the Vatican for that. There ARE people actually living without money willingly. They directly trade their skills and laboring power for food, clothes and living room. One of the better known people doing it in Germany is Raphael Fellmer.

How ironic. The Catholic church is one of the wealthiest institutions in the world, owning large swathes of real estate and plantations. And where I live, in my city alone they own millions of $$$ worth of prime real estate. First they should set the example by distributing some of that land to the homeless poor. Talk about redistribution after that, and I'll listen.

One of the reasons Marxism and the church despise each other is that they compete for the same clientele

The Catholic Church has been taking from the poor for centuries, promising them a place in heaven if they confess their sins; pretty hypocritical, isn't it?

That is true. The Catholic church resembles a Multinational business company, rather than a religious organization. I am slightly positive about the new Pope. I hope that he will help the poor.
