Pope Francis is making headlines, warning that "we can no longer trust in the unseen forces and the invisible hand of the market. Growth in justice requires more than economic growth."
Meanwhile, America's flagship Catholic university is planning to take a million dollars from the Koch brothers to spread their right-wing, anti-poor agenda.
The billionaire Koch brothers are the biggest funders of the tea party movement and the anti-government think tanks that are waging war on anti-poverty programs.
But even though the Koch brothers' efforts are clearly out of step with Catholic social teaching, the Catholic University of America just announced a million dollar donation from Charles Koch to their business and economics school.
The Koch brothers' past donations to universities have come with strings attached -- Charles Koch used a similar donation to veto most of the professors another university wanted to hire with his donation.
Catholic University needs to put Pope Francis' vision of a church for the poor ahead of the Koch brothers' radical agenda.
