Know your radical leftists

At New York magazine's Daily Intelligencer blog, Dan Amira has a fun quiz based on Francis's new apostolic exhortation: "Bill de Blasio or the Pope?"

Which of those two gentlemen said, "Inequality is the root of social ills"? And who said, "We cannot resign ourselves to the mind-set that says rising inequality is a necessary byproduct of urban success”? It's surprisingly difficult -- or not so surprising, I suppose, given de Blasio's ideological roots in South American activism and the social Gospel. Anyway, I got 9/10. Don't hate.
