Whatever else one might say about him, Pope Francis does not seem to be good news for feminists.

Feminist? Maybe not. Gynocentric? Yup:
“Woman’s thought is important,” he said. Noting how women think differently from men, he said “one cannot make a good decision without listening to women.”
I don’t need a woman to enable me to make a good decision thank you very much.

I suspect he is just being polite.

Well, he may not be a feminist. But he is a socialist. And that’s not Christian.

Nah, Francis is just not very bright or cunning.
But he is a socialist. And that’s not Christian.
Now that’s debatable. Modern socialism has roots in Christianity*; many religious orders are set up that way. But it’s certainly not practical unless you are living with saints:
*Acts 2: …those who had believed had all things in common and they began selling their property and possessions and sharing them with all, as anyone might have need.

Irrelevant. We’re talking about the economy itself not religious orders. Check out Venezuela sometime.

That would work in a monastery or ashram which has a specific spiritual function but not outside, it would just collapse. Venezuela as pointed out is just the last in a series of economic train wrecks. But unfettered capitalism without ethics brings a different social disease. After the fall of communism came consumerism plus influx of pornography, prostitution and drugs, all of which had be totally controlled before. But with such free market capitalism the is no thought if what is be marketed to the people is actually good for them, as long as it makes a profit. As Solzhenitsyn said “the difference between the Russians and the Americans is that at least the Russians knew they were slaves.” The West is enslaved by consumerism and the huge debts people get into to buy things they don’t need. As the bumper sticker said “I owe, I owe, and off to work I go.”

Unfettered capitalism? you’re kidding right? Where does this “unfettered capitalism” exist? Oh wait, that’s right. NO WHERE. not even close. The market is taxed like crazy and regulated TO DEATH. Government has created all of this immorality not capitalism. i can’t believe I have to explain this to people these days considering how incredibly huge government has become. Amazing.

Whatever you say. If you think that a system that depends on people being consumers who are convinced by the advertising agencies to buy products they don’t need and rack up huge debts is healthy. So be it. I call such consumers who drive the economy “battery people” like all those fields of human batteries in the Matrix. At least for me I don’t buy what I want, but if I need something I will get the best I can afford and God always provides for my real needs.

Jim, I was merely referring to the claim, “And that’s not Christian”. Socialism is clearly Christian, at least in Acts.
I certainly never claimed I thought socialism works in the real world (outside of a community of saints).

i can’t comment on the other comments here as i don’t really understand what is being said, but with regard to the post, i think it is good He has angered feminists. They think far too much of themselves and are really ugly parodies of females. i wish more Men would speak up to denounce feminism in all its ugliness.
