Cartoonist Has Cynical View Of Charity
Apropos of Michael Ramirez’ cartoon, is it possible that Pope Francis allows scripture to shape his political and economic views rather than just using scripture to defend them (“A Reading From The Holy Gospel …, May 20)?
Holy scripture stands above all political and economic systems, and when scripture critiques our human conventions, we must listen to that truth. Obviously, the cartoonist has a cynical view of the role of scripture in a Christian’s life.
