Scott Greer, The Daily Caller & Sarah Badawi, Progressive Change Campaign Committee(PCCC) & Neil McCabe, Breitbart all join Thom. During a trip to Krakow Poland - Pope Francis had harsh words for the capitalist system - and for the people who worry with white knuckles about "RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM!" According to the Wall Street Journal - Pope Francis told reporters that "Terrorism grows when there is no other option, and as long as the world economy has at its center the god of money and not the person. This is fundamental terrorism, against all humanity." And he went on to say that "It is not right and it is not just to say that Islam is terroristic. If I speak of Islamic violence, I should speak of Catholic violence. Not all Muslims are violent, not all Catholics are violent. In almost all religions there is always a small group of fundamentalists. One can kill with the tongue as well as the knife."

And are Republicans willing to start talking about extremism in general - rather than focusing and discriminating against believers of one particular faith?
