Pope: People should work for peace & justice, not act "as a mob swayed by the powers that be"

Pope Francis issued his first official writing, an 84-page document known as an apostolic exhortation, on Sunday Nov. 24th. "Evangelii Gaudium" (On The Proclamation of the Gospel In Today's World), is comprised of 288 short paragraphs. The Pope described the document as an "invitation to a new phase of evangelization." In the document, the Pontiff stressed that Catholics should show mercy & compassion to the poor and should work with Muslims, Jews, & atheists for peace & justice in the world. The document has been criticized by some members of the so-called right because it dares to address the
"idolotry of money." I was interested in what the Pope actually said, so I took the time to read the entire document, (which, at 288 paragraphs, was no simple feat) as I ate delicious Thanksgiving leftovers. Here are excerpts of interest for those who follow political affairs. [Article conti9nues here.]
