The Pope Should Stick to Theology:
Asserting that it’s “pure scandal” that women, on average, are paid less than men, Pope Francis demands equal-pay-for-equal-work legislation (“Pope Francis: It’s ‘pure scandal’ that women earn less than men for the same work,” April 30).
What is really pure scandal is that this man arrogantly supposes that his premier perch on the moral high ground gives him leave to pronounce on matters about which he clearly knows nothing ..
And has the Pope familiarized himself with the large body of research that warns of the great risks of negative unintended consequences from well-meaning legislation? ..
The Pope should stick to studying the mysteries of theology, for the realities of the economy seem to be beyond his grasp.
