Great, Great read over at Joe.My.God.
“The Marxist ideology is wrong. But I have met many Marxists in my life who are good people, so I don’t feel offended [to have been called a Marxist]”.
“There is nothing in the Exhortation that cannot be found in the social Doctrine of the Church”.
“I wasn’t speaking from a technical point of view, what I was trying to do was to give a picture of what is going on”.
“The only specific quote I used was the one regarding the ‘trickle-down theories’ which assume that economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and social inclusiveness in the world”.
“The promise was that when the glass was full, it would overflow, benefitting the poor”.
“But what happens instead, is that when the glass is full, it magically gets bigger nothing ever comes out for the poor”.
“This was the only reference to a specific theory”.
“I was not, I repeat, speaking from a technical point of view but according to the Church’s social doctrine. This does not mean being a Marxist.”
‘Pope Francis, when asked how he feels about being called a Marxist by “ultraconservatives in the USA.” Pundits believe the question was a reference to Rush Limbaugh’.

‘The National Liberty Foundation is a Florida-based group of radical conservatives associated with the right-wing group that calls themselves the Tea Party. They use their Facebook to post lots of right-wing meme images and racist links’.
‘Yesterday, they posted the above image, which looks a whole lot like an anti-immigrant cartoon. Well, it is an anti-immigrant cartoon—it’s just from the video game BioShock Infinite, where it’s used as propaganda for the Founders, a jingoistic, xenophobic group that runs the floating city of Columbia. They’re the video game equivalent of the Tea Party, and they’re portrayed as a nasty group of racist white men’.
‘In other words, this Tea Party group just Facebooked an image meant to satirize the Tea Party’.

The Donald for NY Governor?
‘Donald Trump says he will decided soon about whether to challenge New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) in 2014, but it doesn’t sound like he’s apt to do so’.
“I’ll make a decision … some time pretty soon,” Trump said Monday on “Fox and Friends.”
