Pope: The poor are sacrificed on 'the altar of money'

Everything is image. Via: @upbyartists 
Pope Francis delivered yet another biting critique of contemporary capitalism on Saturday, saying the poor are often sacrificed on the "altar of money" and accusing the wealthy of worshipping a new "golden calf." Saturday's speech was neither as long nor as scathing as the sharp denunciation of modern capitalism the Pope delivered Thursday in Bolivia, in which he called the relentless pursuit of profits the "dung of the devil." Still, it had its share of rhetorical fire. The Pope said the poor are the "flesh of Christ." [link]
