I was baptized a Catholic.
I have been an atheist since the age of 8.
The scandals of Holy Roman Church has reinforced my decision over the years, however I like the new pope.
Francis I was once a nightclub bouncer in Buenos Aires.
I worked that job for over twenty years in New York, Paris, Hamburg, London, and LA.
Francis I is one of us.
I got his back.
He supports the poor.
“Human beings themselves are nowadays considered as consumer goods which can be used and thrown away. We have begun a throw away culture. This tendency is seen on the level of individuals and whole societies; and it is being promoted! In circumstances like these, solidarity, which is the treasure of the poor, is often considered counterproductive, opposed to the logic of finance and the economy. While the income of a minority is increasing exponentially, that of the majority is crumbling.”
No pope has spoken like this in my lifetime.
None dared to challenge the rich.
They know the price of questioning the status quo.
I know the cost of silence.
Pacem in terris.
Free the world.
