The news is all a-flutter today with the Pope’s recent statements:
“Health justice should be among the priorities of governments and international institutions,” he added.
The pope said that establishing this goal requires “a true distributive justice that guarantees to all, on the basis of objective needs, adequate care,” and he said “the social doctrine of the Church has always evidenced the importance of distributive justice and of social justice in the different sectors of human relations.”
Benedict says condom use is acceptable “in certain cases”.
As John Fugelsang pointed out, can you guess which one got all the press?
Now, according to Glenn Beck, whenever anyone says “social justice” they’re a Communist and/or Nazi:
I beg you, look for the words ‘social justice’ or ‘economic justice’ on your church Web site. If you find it, run as fast as you can. Social justice and economic justice, they are code words. Now, am I advising people to leave their church? Yes!
Communists are on the left, and the Nazis are on the right. That’s what people say. But they both subscribe to one philosophy, and they flew one banner. . . . But on each banner, read the words, here in America: ‘social justice.’ They talked about economic justice, rights of the workers, redistribution of wealth, and surprisingly, democracy.
You heard it, Catholics. Glenn Beck says you should leave your church, because apparently Pope Benedict is a Marxist. (Now, Nazi, that’s a little more complicated.)
