Various lefties were all over the Pope when he said that capitalism needed taming, that ruthless self-interest just weren\’t right. Appeals to authority even: look, distinguished churchman telling the neo-liberals the truth!
Benedict XVI claimed that legislation introduced by Labour to end discrimination “actually violates natural law” because it stopped worshippers remaining true to their beliefs.
Rather than making society more equal, the Government’s new rules limited religious freedom, he said.
Wonder how many of such will support Il Papa\’s latest thought.
That one agrees with some thing someone says and not with others is fine. It\’s rather that you\’re not supposed to make appeals to authority and then be selective…..
As The Guardian headline has it:
Freedom comes before equality
Wel,, yes, it should, certainly…..
