Pope says rich nations "plundered" Third World

Pope says rich nations "plundered" Third World

In the 400-page book, called "Jesus of Nazareth," the Pope offers a modern application of Jesus's parable of the Good Samaritan, who stopped to help a man who had been robbed by thieves when others, including a priest, had not. "The current relevance of the parable is obvious," the Pope writes. "If we apply it to the dimensions of globalised society today, we see how the populations of Africa have been plundered and sacked and this concerns us intimately," the Pope says in his book, which comes out on April 16, his 80th birthday.

Does the pope really think he's the first one to point out the evils of colonialism? Isn't this about 50-100 years after most political scientists already acknowledged the fact? This from the man who has participated in the deaths of untold thousands in Africa from HIV by maintaining a policy which has denied them the use of condoms–on pain of judgment in the afterlife. Sick.
