Please refer to the link, the CNBC story has a few embedded videos of Cardinal Dolan being interviewed concerning donors who are hesitant to contribute after The Pope's "harsh" words for the the wealthy.  They Include an anonymous 7 figure donor, according to Ken Langone, the founder of Home Depot, who is spearheading the fundraiser.

Excerpt.

Quote:Langone said he's raised the issue more than once with Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, most recently at a breakfast in early December at which he updated him on fundraising progress.

"I've told the cardinal, 'Your Eminence, this is one more hurdle I hope we don't have to deal with. You want to be careful about generalities. Rich people in one country don't act the same as rich people in another country,' " he said.

Yes, the pope must be careful about generalities, we would not want him to offend, especially the rich.

Yup, all those rich, Wall St. pedophile priests . . . . Wait, you mean there are OTHER bad guys out there who are not evil on account of money, but on account of real sins?

What ever happened to that famous document that had all the dirt on all those members of the high clergy involved in the gay lobby and who knows what else? That entire thing was simply run over by a bus marked It's About Money, Stupid.

The pope wrote an exhortation about the Gospel in which he condemned selfishness. It must have really hit close to home for some people. Now they call him a marxist. Just remember, avarice is still one of the seven deadly sins.

I don't see any contradiction in what Pope Francis has said on economics with what is in Rerum novarum and Quadregesimo anno.
Consider these: " it is "incontestible, that the wealth of nations originates from no other source than from the labor of workers." Leo XIII.
I think Rush Limbaugh might call that Marxism. 
                         
"In the first place, it is obvious that not only is wealth concentrated in our times but an immense power and despotic economic dictatorship is consolidated in the hands of a few, who often are not owners but only the trustees and managing directors of invested funds which they administer according to their own arbitrary will and pleasure."
That probably offended some of the wealthy when Pius XI said it in Quadragesimo Anno in 1931.

They were blinded by his gargantuan gold cross and his liturgical vestments dripping in gold and precious jewels.  :eyeroll:

The rich are the people keeping the Church "alive" in modern times, at least in a visible and material sense. This news isn't good and shouldn't be laughed at. If it weren't for these rich folk those old purrty gothic parishes and cathedrals in the USA would turn into chic night clubs owned by Paris Hilton or the Kardashians. Many old churches in Europe have already turned into restaurants, libraries, and night clubs.

The "gargantuan" gold cross was a gift and he did not own the vestments either.

Take a look at this photo. Notice any gold?  What are his vestments "dripping with" ?
