Brogoglio: Resist government "paternalism" of the poor
Posted by Laura
For those who believe that the new Pope will aggressively push for redistributionist government economic policies, consider this quote from the Holy Father, from his earlier writings:

"We cannot truly respond to the challenge of eradicating exclusion and poverty if the poor continue to be objects, as targets of actions by the state and other organizations in a paternalistic and aid based sense, instead of subjects in an environment where the state and society create social conditions that promote and safeguard their rights and allow them to build their own destiny."
