Pope to Cor Unum: 'Unbridled' capitalism responsible for poverty and inequality crisis

2013-01-21

BENEDICT XVI
"In recent centuries, the ideologies that celebrated a cult of nationality, of race, or of social class have proven to be idolatry. The same can be said of unbridled capitalism with its cult of profit, which has resulted in crises, inequality, and poverty.”

Benedict XVI asked attendees not to forget the spiritual side of mankind. And to reject the notion of allowing something only because it is possible, even if it's not legitimate, such as demographic policies like population control.

BENEDICT XVI

"Christians, especially those who work for charitable organizations, should be guided by the principles of the faith in which we can abide by 'God's point of view', by His plan for us.”

Benedict XVI encouraged them to be vigilant and critical of any work or contributions that directly or indirectly are in contrast with Christian teaching.
