B16 On a Roll

I mentioned in my earlier post this morning about some recent comments by Pope Benedict XVI, but I want to return to them here.

At a meeting with police officers, the Holy Father said, "There is no justice where profit is the number one criterion." Later in the speech, the Pope added, "justice is not a mere human convention. When, in the name of supposed justice, the criteria of utility, profit and material possession come to dominate, the value and dignity of human beings can be trampled underfoot.” Wouldn't you like to know what he thinks of Bain Capital?

Then, the Pope's address for the World Day for Migrants and Refugees was similarly sharp about the need to create humane criterion for assessing the plight of immigrants.

Really, ask yourselves this question: Would such sentiments get the Pope booed were he to participate in a GOP debate?
