Billionaire Ken Langone, the founder of Home Depot issued a warning to Pope Francis during an interview with CNBC which was published this past Monday. In the interview he said that wealthy people such as himself are feeling ostracized by the Pope’s messages in support of the poor, and might stop giving to charity if the Pope continues to make statements criticizing capitalism and income inequality.
Mr. Langone described the Pope’s comments about a “culture of prosperity” as “exclusionary” statements that may make some of the rich “incapable of feeling compassion for the poor.”
Well, what do we think about this, folks?
Personally, I think the billionaire needs to listen to Cardinal Dolan more-----AND Pope Francis needs to clarify and expand on his previous comments regarding capitalism and income inequality.IMO, he also needs to brush up on the examples of how capitalism is supposed to operate in the real world, so to speak,.
