Vatican City, May 16 - Pope Francis on Thursday
blasted politicians and financiers who spurn ethics as they seek
to gather power and riches.
"The will to power and of possession has become
limitless," the pope told a group of ambassadors at the Vatican.
"Concealed behind this attitude is a rejection of ethics,
a rejection of God.
"Ethics, like solidarity, is a nuisance. It is regarded as
counterproductive: as something too human, because it
relativizes money and power; as a threat, because it rejects
manipulation and subjection of people: because ethics leads to
God, who is situated outside the categories of the market.
"These financiers, economists and politicians consider God
to be unmanageable, even dangerous, because he calls man to his
full realization and to independence from any kind of slavery".
