for example, Louis Woodhill, a commentator for Forbes magazine. Woodhill works
himself into a tremendous lather over the pope’s musings. Francis, he writes,
“has lent the prestige of the Catholic Church to leftist/socialist whining
about the ‘new tyranny’ of ‘inequality,’ ‘exclusion,’ and ‘marginalization.’” Woodhill
is appalled. How dare the pope claim that such things exist! If there are poor
people in the world, it’s their own damned fault.
