Pope Francis Series – Fatwa on Money

I wasn’t ever expecting to put together a Pope Series; however, Pope Francis keeps commenting on monetary and economic issues, and what he is saying is creating quite a stir. He is just short of pontificating on the evils of debt, interest and usury, which have always been honorable mentions in the Old and New Testaments and the Koran, common ground issues for these cousin religions – Religion and Usury. If the Catholic flock ever takes to heart his economic exhortations, it would be a global economic game changer. Amen.

Pope Francis Says Ills of Global Economy, Not Islam, Inspire Terrorism
Excerpt of Pope Francis' in-flight presser from Poland

“Terrorism grows when there are no other options, and when the center of the global economy is the god of money and not the person -- men and women -- this is already the first terrorism! You have cast out the wonder of creation -- man and woman -- and you have put money in its place. This is a basic terrorism against all of humanity! Think about it!”
