Pope blast politicians, financiers who spurn ethics

(see related story) 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".
