Are Economic Issues Harder Than Social Issues For the Evangelicals and Catholics to Unite Behind?

Vatican Pope Equatorial GuineaRobert P. Jones writes, “At first glance, the link between evangelicals and Catholics seems like a political match made in heaven…. But the pope’s call for economic justice complicates the relationship, because it calls both Catholics and evangelicals to cooperation beyond a narrow band of cultural politics. It remains to be seen whether this evangelical flock will hear in Pope Francis’ broader message the voice of a shepherd they can follow.”
