Pope Francis Equates Christianity to Communism

Pope Francis Equates Christianity to Communism:
"In an interview with Pope Francis published November 11 by the Italian newspaper, Repubblica, the supreme authority of the Catholic Church equated Christianity with Communism when asked about his views on Marxist ideology.
“It is the communists, in all cases, that think like Christians. 
Christ has spoken of a society where the poor, the weak and the excluded are those who make the decisions. 
Not the demagogues, or the barbarians, but rather the people and the poor that have faith in God or not that we have to help obtain equality and liberty.”
...There have been a variety of reactions following the Pope’s comparison between Christianity and the Communist ideology.
The Spanish journalist and writer Hermann Tertsch tweeted that, “The apology for a criminal ideology surprises at the Vatican. Although almost nothing there can surprise now.”
“It’s inconceivable that we attend so frivolous of a criminal ideology with 100 million murdered. From the Vatican,” Tertsch said. Source: ABC
