Mossback BS: Pope Francis targeted by Steve Bannon (27) RE: BS: Pope Francis targeted by Steve Bannon 14 Apr 19

body of doctrine known as Catholic Social Teaching since the 1878 election of Leo XIII.

Actually, that began, fitfully, with the Revum Novarum of 1891, not in 1878 and that was more down to Cardinal Manning than Leo XIII. That encyclical also had some damned nasty things to say about socialism and socialists.

If up to Leo, the Kingdom of Italy would never have been recognized, and political liberalism, democracy, science and technology (the use of electric lights included) would have remained condemned.

a near-total pacifism

Funny, I don't recall the Pope coming out against the Viet Nam War, as the Berrigans could attest.....
