American right wing fundamentalist ‘christians’ are accusing Pope Francis of being a socialist / Marxist. Why you may ask? He is celebrating his first Christmas as the pontiff this year by giving personal gifts to the poor of Rome. The Vatican has announced that 2,000 envelopes containing free public transport tickets and telephone cards. When reading the bible I got the impression that Jesus not only preached but practised socialism. To the above gun toting bigots remember this: “A righteous man knows the rights of the poor; a wicked man does not understand such knowledge.” Speaking personally, I would respect Francis even more if he shared some of the £billions that his organisation has in the vatican vaults, with all of the less fortunate members of his religion.
