Weekend Roundup: Subversive Pope Takes Aim at Global Consumer Society

Following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ who overturned the money-changer's table in Biblical times, Pope Francis has regularly hurled the gospel against the "idolatrous economies" of contemporary global capitalism "that sacrifice man at the feet of the idol of money."

This week in South Korea, he took aim at the temple of consumerism. Riding around town in a more-than-modest Kia Soul, he chastised his famously shopaholic flock in the land of Samsung for the "tendency to toy with the latest fads, gadgets and distractions rather than attending to the things that really matter." He also criticized, "the spirit of unbridled competition which generates selfishness and strife."
