Pope Francis Condemns Corruption and Unbridled Capitalism

Pope Francis is truly a remarkable figure.  My favorite quote from the above Huffington Post article:

He urged politicians and business leaders “not to yield to an economic model which is idolatrous, which needs to sacrifice human lives on the altar of money and profit.”

I wish I had more to write, but I am somewhat speechless.  I’m extremely glad to see such a powerful figure speaking truth and standing up for human rights.  Statements like the above shouldn’t be surprising, it’s basic common sense, but unfortunately we live in a world where people all too often put money and profit above others.
