Pope Francis is the undisputed global champion of the 99 percent and has spoken out against rampant capitalism and worldwide greed. His message has been embraced by millions, except those at Fox News.

Particularly, traditionalists who came of age under John Paul II and then under Benedict XVI. Who, though they had impulses that were not exactly Ayn Rand on capitalism, were far more into philosophy and theology, and far less into the economy.
