Isn't he saying...

Isn't he saying that putting money over people and making money your main motivation in life is not a good way to live? I don't think he is saying that making money is a bad thing. I do believe that work gives a person dignity and self respect. Isn't this what Libertatrians believe, that people should work and care for themselves. He's talking about the world economic system and how effed up it is which it is. I just heard Ron Paul talking about how the gap between the rich and poor is growing greatly and we're all getting hosed by the global economic system.

I'm not sure exactly what the problem with what he is saying actually is. I know he's Catholic and therefore an automatic target for many but then again, maybe I'm dense and missing what the hubub is all about.

The title is somewhat misleading as well. It should have just read "The Pope condemns idolatry of cash. IMO, he is wrong". But then again, that wouldn't get as many clicks to the OPS website. Sensationalism sells even if titles are lacking accuracy.
