    Most of us consider Pope Benedict to be a crazy old goat (expletive deleted)-bent on bringing back the dark ages for women and their families. Given his criminally insane stance against birth control, we don't expect common sense from him and it's enlightening to find Benedict does have a sensible idea or two.

    Ha, ha! I doubt if Obama has even read Marx!

    I was just going to say that perhaps the Pope is smarter. Obama always seems to come up a few marbles short.

    I find this rich. the church has had a love affair with Marxism (wrt to practical application, not the theoretical) since Leo the thirteenth's encyclical Rerum Novarum. Pope Benedict still has a Marxist hangover to this day. They think economics is not a science/a reality in its own right, but is completely malleable by human will, and therefore has no inherent nature to be studied and respected.

    Take a look at "The Church and the Market" by Tom Woods, the catholic historian and states' rights proponent.
