Reliably left-wing Time magazine recently picked the head of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis, as its “person of the year” for 2013. This choice is odd for several reasons–after all the Pope stands against most of Time’s leftist ideals–but maybe the Pope’s recent Marxist-styled attack on capitalism explains the choice?
But let’s find a minute to note how uncomfortable the leftist magazine must have been with its choice. After all, Pope Francis has not yet done anything in office except become noted for his Marxist-like attack on capitalism.
It is clear that Time only picked Francis because of that attack on the single best system ever invented by man. After all, if one looks at this Pope’s other positions one finds the antithesis of Time’s left-wing principles.
Just this week, for instance, this Pope issued a new message that reaffirmed his opposition to abortion. This is one of the premiere positions of the Catholic Church that goes against Time magazine’s left-wingism.
Another thing that goes against Time’s left-wing ideals is the Pope’s stance against gay marriage.
So, why pick the Pope as the ,man of the year? After all Pope Francis has only been in his position for nine months. He hasn’t really done anything yet to become “man of the year” material. Almost like Obama who was bestowed an undeserved Nobel Prize about ten minutes after he became President despite a singular lack of achievement, the Pope is suddenly and mysteriously awarded Time’s man of the year.
Why is that?
Because of the one, single thing this Pope is now known for: a socialist-styled hatred for capitalism.
Rush Limbaugh also addressed this subject this week.
So, what do you think? Is Rush right? Do you agree with this Marxist-leaning Pope? Or is this all much ado about nothing? Tell us your thoughts below.
