Homeless in Manila, Philippines

Pope John Paul II, (who preceded Benedict XVI, the Nazi pope who just retired) was a ferocious zealot against socialism. What pope hasn’t been!? Pope John Paul wrote in his encyclical, “Centesimus Annus” that capitalism not only provides the most efficient system for allocating resources but is the most compatible with dignity & freedom of the individual, giving “central place to the person's desires & preferences.” On a visit to the US, he waxed poetic against abortion rights, saying, "All human life, from the moment of conception & through all subsequent stages, is sacred."

Tell that baloney to this Filipino man sleeping rough inside a baby crib in downtown Manila! Is this what he calls dignity!? Is this how he sees sacred!? Or is he just blowing smoke to justify the status quo!?
