The Pope Weighs In On Economic Policies

Fr. Thomas J. Reese is the author of Inside the Vatican: The Politics and Organization of the Catholic Church and former Editor of America Magazine.   That means he knows what is he talking about when it comes to the Pope and social policy.  That is why such comments like these may shock some Catholics:

This will surprise most Americans who think the pope is a Republican because he opposes abortion and gay marriage. But when it comes to economic justice, Pope Benedict XVI is to the left of President Obama. Heck, he is even to the left of Nancy Pelosi.

So now that he has your attention, tune in to the rest of what Fr. Reese has to say about global economic policies.
