Catholic Group Demands Apology From Rush Limbaugh For Remarks Attacking Pope Francis (AUDIO)
Outraged by Rush Limbaugh’s recent comments critical of Pope Francis and the Catholic church, a group called Catholics in Alliance have launched a petition against the Right-Wing radio host.
At issue were Pope Francis’s recent remarks where he spoke of an “idol called money,” and a “money-god,” and called unfettered capitalism a “new tyranny.” The pontiff went even further, calling for global leaders to fight poverty and inequality, saying;
“Just as the commandment ‘Thou shalt not kill’ sets a clear limit in order to safeguard the value of human life, today we also have to say ‘thou shalt not’ to an economy of exclusion and inequality. Such an economy kills…”
Limbaugh attacked Pope Francis and ruffled feathers when he opined that the Pope has “gone beyond Catholicism,” to the “pure political,” and continued;
“I gotta be very careful. I have been numerous times to the Vatican. It wouldn’t exist without tons of money. But regardless, what this is, somebody has either written this for him or gotten to him. This is just pure Marxism coming out of the mouth of the pope. Unfettered capitalism? That doesn’t exist anywhere. Unfettered capitalism is a liberal socialist phrase to describe the United States. Unfettered, unregulated.”
The petition reads, in part:
Contrary to what Mr. Limbaugh suggests, the Catholic Church isn’t built on money, but on the firm foundation of Jesus Christ.
We call on Mr. Limbaugh to apologize and retract his remarks. We urge other Church organizations and leaders–both ordained and lay–to also condemn Mr. Limbaugh’s comments.
