The economics of Pope Francis is not the issue

The majority of Catholic criticism of Pope Francis’ “Evangelii Gaudium” seems to be focused on his radical economic proposals and his lack of appreciation for “free market” economic theories. But these are the very least of this document’s many defects which are fundamentally doctrinal, moral, and spiritual. That Catholic “conservatives” are so fixated on the economic passages, and apparently oblivious to much more serious problems with the rest of the document, speaks volumes about the state of “conservative” Catholicism today.
