Is Pope Francis a Communist?

Some conservatives are labeling recent comments from Pope Francis as an indication that the pope is a Communist. I have included a few links with differing points of view.

I lead with Rush Limbaugh: http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2014/06/30/pope_francis_says_communist...

Here is an article from CNBC showing the concern of at least one wealthy Catholic donor. Is this a form of extortion? You be the judge. http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/langone-dolan-pope-fundraising/2013/12/...

Finally, what I assume to be the official Catholic response: http://www.catholic.org/news/hf/faith/story.php?id=51986

Nah, I think most pontiffs lean toward fascism. The top-down form of government is actually reflected in how the Vatican rules its subjects, including a prohibition on members of a local church having a say on who fills the post of parish priest.

Patience is a great virtue.

But, I was led to understand that the Pope is infallible in religious manners. How can this be? Of course, I haven't felt an earthquake yet. Maybe the Pope is right!

What's next? Will Pope Francis marry any gay or lesbian couples?
