‘Communists have stolen our flag’

29 Jun, 2014

Pope Francis responds to allegations that he sounds like a Leninist because he criticizes capitalism:

I can only say that the communists have stolen our flag. The flag of the poor is Christian. Poverty is at the center of the Gospel.┬áCommunists say that all this is communism. Sure, twenty centuries later. So when they speak, one can say to them: ‘but then you are Christian.’
