Pope Francis, Dorothy Day, and the Redistribution Delusion.
by Mona Charen, September 24, 2015
 
Pope that mentions Dorothy Day is a pope that rocks,” tweeted Neera Tanden of the left-leaning Center for American Progress. Tanden might have wished to reel back that praise if she had known that Day, though a prominent pacifist and socialist, was also a fervent opponent of abortion, birth control, Social Security, and the sexual revolution.
 
It’s fitting that Pope Francis should have invoked Dorothy Day among his pantheon of great Americans — she’s a symbol of where leftists always go wrong. This pope is going wrong in the same way. The Left’s delusions of “social justice” seem indomitable — impervious to evidence.
 
The pope lauded Day for “her social activism, her passion for justice, and for the cause of the oppressed, [which] were inspired by the gospel, her faith, and the example of the saints.”
