Pope Francis had his 77th birthday today, but not everybody is celebrating. Last night, FOX News's Sean Hannity said he agrees with Rush Limbaugh that the pope is preaching "pure Marxism." Though Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin have voiced displeasure with Pope Francis, he has the highest approval ratings of any leader in the world.
An overwhelming majority of Catholics throughout the United States stand with Pope Francis, who spent his birthday today by sharing Mass and breakfast with three homeless men from the streets of Rome and one of their companion dogs.
The Pope is sending us a clear message: in God's house, there is a special place for the poor and the marginalized. Pope Francis is not a proponent of pure Marxism, but rather of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
