To The Daily Sun,
Is it me, or is there something that the pope just doesn't get? He comes to America, and criticizes our policies and lectures Congress. America is the country that is always there in times of need. If something catastrophic happens in the world, who is first up to send aid, even to our enemies?
Out of all the world polluters, what country has actually done something (and still is) to mitigate its "carbon footprint"? That's right, the good ol' U.S. of A! Has anyone seen the photos of Chinese cities during one of their air polluted brown outs? Oops, that's right, you can't see what's two feet in front of you.
I couldn't listen for long as I find it disturbing to hear the "head of state" of one of the richest organizations/religions (riches "acquired" from peoples violently subjugated and robbed in the past) preach "socialism" to a successful capitalist country. A country whose people have the opportunity to better themselves, if they choose to.
So "Your Eminence", why don't you head on over to China, Russia, or maybe the Middle East and preach to them about human rights, climate change and the equal distribution of wealth among the people. If you do, don't forget the bulletproof bubble for the "Pope-mobile."
Thanks for the visit...
(To those who may take offense with the preceding message: get over it! The opinions expressed are necessarily those of the writer, and probably the opinions of many others ... afraid that lightning will strike them if they admit it!)
