    Default Pope Francis: Labor unions are essential to society

    Yes!!! This pope has it figured out!!!

    Labor unions that protect and defend the dignity of work and the rights of workers continue to have an essential role in society, especially in promoting inclusion, Pope Francis said.

    "There is no good society without a good union, and there is no good union that isn't reborn every day in the peripheries, that doesn't transform the rejected stones of the economy into corner stones," the pope said on June 28 during an audience with Italian union leaders.

    Labor unions must guard and protect workers, but also defend the rights of those "outside the walls," particularly those who are retired and the excluded who are "also excluded from rights and democracy."

    Turning to one of his frequently voiced concerns, the pope told the union leaders that a society that leaves young men and women without jobs is "foolish and shortsighted."

    Their Tradition existed before anybody knew "the word"......300+ years...before compiled.

    Divorce and marriage is mentioned bythe Pope I believe......maybe that without unions.....marriage is very difficult for very many.........but the righties appear not to care about this part of Christianity. Which is why I never voted for them before...They act like the side with Christian authority ....yet they only make Christian things like marriage and having children very difficult....with one main platform leading that way...their hatred and fear of unions and the working man having any money or political voice and lobby.

    Wife, what is your take on this? Even though it is quite old, interesting. I have a good friend that is so Catholic he could be the Pope. We had a long conversation about this one night to pass the miles. Don't remember much about it but I did like listening to his theory. IIRC he said that this wasn't church doctrine.
