PopeWatch: Obama and Limbaugh
Well, what do you know. The most anti-Catholic President in our nation’s history is suddenly quoting popes.
During a Wednesday speech on income equality, Obama remarked, “Across the developed world, inequality has increased. Some of you may have seen just last week, the pope himself spoke about this at eloquent length.”
He went on to quote a line from Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation “Evangelii Gaudium,” asking, “How can it be that it is not a news item when an elderly homeless person dies of exposure, but it is news when the stock market loses two points?”
That is truly hilarious when one considers that Obama has been President now for almost half a decade and that his policies have succeeded only in exacerbating income inequality with his truly wretched stewardship of the economy. Rush Limbaugh who, unsurprisingly, has been highly critical of the economic portions of Evangelii Gaudium, recognizes that the Pope’s popularity with the port side of our political spectrum is only fleeting because of the Pope’s position on abortion, the holy of holies for the Left:
And, by the way, the pope is out there saying that no matter what, Pope Francis, he said yesterday, no matter how progressive minded the world turns, the Catholic Church can never compromise on its no-abortion rule. He said it’s a matter of human dignity. In Democrat parlance, the pope is an old white guy. They don’t like old white guys. Old white guys are the problem, nuclear family and all that. So they’re really conflicted. I mean, the pope is singing their song on trickle-down and capitalism, but he’s not budging on abortion.
