Catholic Groups Reject Rush Limbaugh's Remarks About Pope Francis

After Media Matters caught Rush Limbaugh lashing out at the pope for his critique of inequality, Catholic groups -- including Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and Faithful America -- launched petitions rejecting Limbaugh's comments.


Pope Francis struck a chord with Catholics and non-Catholics alike when he issued his first apostolic exhortation, "The Joy of the Gospel," a commentary on his "vision of the Church" and his thoughts on the state of modern capitalism and global economic inequality.

Rush Limbaugh called it "pure Marxism coming out of the mouth of the pope."

In response, Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good asked Limbaugh to apologize and retract his remarks, while Faithful America asked bishops to make a public statement clarifying their support for Pope Francis and his challenge to "the new idolatry of money."
