Today The New York Times covered the pope's attacks on the "tyranny" of markets in a key document. Andrew Tangel at the LA Times noted, "Pope Francis won't be ringing the opening bell anytime soon." David Gelles also with NYT announced, "Almost ready to convert. Go papa!" Michelle Gaps tweeted a powerful passage: "Francis on reform: 'I prefer a Church which is bruised, hurting and dirty because it has been out on the streets'."
Meanwhile, Business Insider's Joe Weisenthal also had that story, commenting, "The Pope just published one of the most powerful critiques you'll ever read about inequality and the modern economy." Coworker Steven Perlberg couldn't resist this quip: "Is this a good critique of modern capitalism? Um, is the pope catholic? (sorry)."
