On the heels of calling for a Marxist economic conference this coming March (“Economy of Francesco”), Jorge Bergoglio (a.k.a. “Pope Francis”) has once again opined on financial matters. The purported head of the Catholic Church has now designated “tax cuts” as sinful behavior on a par, apparently, with stealing, lying, and adultery:
Today’s structures of sin include repeated tax cuts for the richest people,
often justified in the name of investment and development.*
Bergoglio did not mention what category of sin advocacy for tax cuts falls under – venial or mortal. Maybe the details of how such a policy ranks in offending Divine Justice will be hammered out at the upcoming Economy of Francesco Commie confab!
In Bergoglio’s collectivist mind, those who try and keep their wealth from the ravenous demands of the State are somehow denying the poor their just due:
Every year hundreds of billions of dollars, which should be paid in taxes to
fund health care and education accumulate in tax haven accounts, thus
impeding the possibility of the dignified and sustained development of all
What Bergoglio and his fellow socialists do not understand is that tax cuts lead to economic growth, whether they are for higher or lower income groups. The less wealth that the State confiscates, the more is available to be used for saving and investment – two keys to economic growth. The rich do not horde their money but expand and create businesses which leads to more and better paying jobs for lower income groups who supposedly Bergoglio wants to help.
The poor will only be uplifted by greater production where more goods and services are available at lower prices. Redistribution of income via taxation does not create new wealth, but simply transfers existing wealth from the productive class. Moreover, taxation has the deleterious effect of making individuals produce less since their efforts are siphoned off at the point of a gun. More taxation means less production and, thus, less and more expensive goods for the poor.
Of course, this is basic economic theory that any sane person can understand unless one has matriculated to a Western university or college or pays attention to economic ignoramuses like Jorge Bergoglio!
Bergoglio’s constant attention to the plight of the poor along with other social issues (“climate change,” the environment, immigration) does not align with the vision that the Entity, which created the office that Bergoglio currently holds, had in mind. On at least two occasions, He counseled His followers to focus their attention on spreading the “good news” instead of earthly concerns:
For the poor you have always with you: but me you have not always. [Mt. 26:11]
Let the dead bury their dead, but go thou, and preach the kingdom of
God. [Lk. 9: 60]
While the Church has always sought to protect and help the poor, widows, orphans, and the downtrodden, its primary mission is to preach the Gospel. Since the time of the Second Vatican Anti-Council, 1962-65, and especially during the “reign” of Pope Francis, evangelization has been condemned and, like tax cuts, is now considered sinful activity.
Bergoglio’s criticism of tax reduction is, no doubt, aimed at the Trump Administration’s plan for an additional round of tax cuts. Tax reduction, however, without cuts in government spending will further explode budget deficits which are now even beyond sustainable.
Without corresponding spending reduction, tax cuts will mean that the Federal Reserve will have to make up for the short fall with further money printing. One cannot have Big Government and tax cuts simultaneously. The inevitable monetary crisis will, unfortunately, be blamed on tax cuts and will play into the hands of Bergoglio and his fellow travelers.
That Bergoglio spends most of his time as a social justice warrior instead of the supposed “vicar of Christ” on earth shows the state of the modern Church. Worse, when he does speak on matters of faith, his words and actions are riddled with heresy.
For all those concerned, it is best that “Pope Francis” should be ignored not only for the falsehoods he spreads about Christianity, but also as a social theorist. His pronouncements on the latter will only lead to further impoverishment of the poor and the rest of society while inciting class conflict between those who seek to keep their wealth and those who want to confiscate more of it.

Well, it’s obvious you have little or no understanding of the message of Jesus Christ. He was not a capitalist. In fact, read Acts of the Apostle – the early Christians lived “communally” (Yikes! they were communists!), sharing all of their wealth among themselves. Christ really, really disliked rich people, as he knew they were at root, greedy, selfish and anti-social. You also apparently know little to nothing about economics. Your comment about “tax cuts lead to economic growth…” is pure right-wing propaganda. There is little or no evidence that tax cuts alone fuel economic growth but there is plenty of evidence that unfunded tax cuts (which is all Republicans ever propose) simply pile debt (i.e. slavery) on our children and grandchildren and lead to economic recession. You just simply don’t know what you are talking about and are a phony Christian.
Haha. And another wannabe communist speaks. You have no insight to the Red Shield funded illumini deep state. Play left and right all you want. Lucifer’s puppets are in most all aspects of religion, governments, cults, large businesses, … They be in the final stages of the peasant’s destruction. You too, are using up the ‘royal’s’ planet resources. The Christ is your only way out now. Your choice. No one else’s.
Where in the Gospel do we see calls for the GOVERNMENT to help the poor? You correctly point out that the CHRISTIANS are supporting the poor on their own.
Here let me help you out. Isiah 7:14 “He shall be called Wonderful Counslor and the governments of the world sit upon His shoulders.”
You apparently lack concern and good will towards your fellow man. Furthermore, I carry your debt if you are unaware of that.
NOW MY ADVICE TO THOSE WHO DIE
DECLARE THE PENNYS ON YOUR EYES
CAUSE I’M THE TAX MAN, YEAH THE TAX MAN
AND YOU’RE WORKING FOR NO ONE BUT ME
FAKE MONEY PRINTED BY THE MILITARY AND LENT BY FAKE BANKS IS FRAUD NOT USURY BECAUSE LENDING CREDIT
AT INTEREST IS FRAUD. LENDING CREDIT AT INTEREST ON A FRACTIONAL RESERVE BASIS IS COMPOUNDED FRAUD.
ECONOMICS IS THE PRACTICE OF ROBBING PEOPLE BY FORCING THEM TO SUBMIT TO FAKE MONEY AND FAKE BANKING.
INFLATION AND DEFLATION DO NOT APPLY TO FRAUD.
IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR REAL MONEY SILVER COINS TO BE INFLATED OR DEFLATED. INFLATION AND DEFLATION APPLY TO BANK NOTES REDEEMABLE UPON DEMAND IN SILVER NOT TO PENTAGON MILITARY SCRIP FEDERAL RESERVE NOTES.
Bravo! well said. Fake money is the root cause of poverty, hunger and strife in this world. This fake paper money is nothing but numbers and digits a “Mark of The Beast” (of Usury). Any one remenbers what book of revelation says –“thou shall not be able to trade anywhere in the world without the mark of beast”.
Very well said and very much true.
Frankenfrancic aka Antipope Francis is not a lawfully elected Pope. And the church he heads is not the true church. We are in the last days and as revealed in Revelation 17 the church Frankenfrancis leads is the whore of Babylon.
If you are not a lawful Catholic as it stands today you can never become one. Jesus warned the world. Outside the Roman Catholic faith there is absolutely no salvation.
Your last effort now is the Rosary.
To a great extent you are correct. But communist is a vile word. However divine communism is more correctly stated as Communionism. Hence Jesus is a Communionist.

Antonius, one thing you leave out is that traditionally the Church provided relief for the poor. That is why you see so many Catholic hospitals in the US. If you read Rerum Novarum, Pope Leo XIII considers the idea of the government providing relief absurd.

Government should not take the place of Christians in providing relief to the downtrodden. My two cents.
