What would the pope think of libertarian Jesus?

It’s very sad when religion tries to involve itself into politics. I always thought the archbishop of Canterbury was the worst offender for preaching politics but then Pope Francis happened.

First he rants about the Falkland Islands being rightfully Argentina’s, next he says that free markets are bad for the poor! I wonder what libertarian Jesus would think of this?

The truth is, the pope thinks the only way for people to be compassionate and help the poor is for the government to do it by taxing people, not realising of course that this leads to cronyism and corruption and government dependent charities. No. True compassion is when the individual decides to act by himself.
