Home Depot Founder Has a Sad Because Pope

We have another entry in the I-can't-believe-he-fucking-said-that department. From Talking Points Memo:
Billionaire Home Depot founder Ken Langone has a warning for Pope Francis.
A major Republican donor, Langone told CNBC in a story published online Monday that wealthy people such as himself might stop giving to charity if the Pope continues to make statements criticizing capitalism and income inequality.
We've seen this kind of idiocy before.

What I'd like to ask Ken Langone is, what part of "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God" doesn't he understand?

Oh, right. All of it.

Langone: The next time the pope is mean to me, I'm going to
be mad. And I'm going to tell all my friends to be mean back!
