Pope to American GOP ... Your Libertarian Views are Anathama

According to this report, Pope Francis has issued an apostolic statement that, among other things, directly calls into question many of the primary tenets of libertarian economic and political thought. Now, I myself am not a big fan of the Pope or the Church. But isn't Paul Ryan Catholic? And, how about Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum? And Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.), New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell? Or Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, former Florida governor Jeb Bush, Sen. Pat Toomey (Pa.), New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval and Sen. Kelly Ayotte (N.H.)? Just wondering. Remember, for these folks the Pope is infallible - except, perhaps, when his views puncture our own ideology!
