GOP defines socialism in a way that makes it 'basic kindness in actions' while using it interchangeably with Communism. The following post shows that given how the GOP defines socialism and capitalism, even the Pope has taken a stance in opposition to this sort of capitalism as it's nothing more than highway robbery while using words for prosperity.
The actual economics meaning of socialism is to have all means of production owned by the State and Bernie Sanders has no policy that even hints at turning over citizen powers to the State. All his policies help "we the people as per the preamble to the Constitution and are capitalistic in nature.... as these articles explain:
The plot to marginalize Bernie Sanders: The shared agenda that links Fox News and Hillary Clinton surrogates Both parties are owned by plutocrats. Sanders' challenge threatens them both, and their responses are oddly similar
Why Bernie Sanders should be the 1 percent’s candidate (yes, really) If America's ultra-rich know what's good for them, they'll start getting behind Sanders' progressive reforms
Bernie Sanders has brought new attention to the perils of inequality. What if he could do even more?

Nothing in Bernie Sanders’ platform qualifies as socialist, if that term has any relation at all to its historical meaning. Obsessing over Sanders’ socialist leanings is an exercise in distraction.
What the Pope is talking about is robber baron capitalism (same as stealing) which is what the GOP promotes.

Proof of anti-Christlike behavior of the GOP;
The golden rule and Jesus's 2nd commandment are pretty much the same thing.
Jesus's 2nd Commandment was:
It's often called "the Golden rule" or 'do unto thers as you would have them to do to you'. -
This is what the GOP is like today, reflecting the complete opposite of what the Golden rule is... or in other words, the party of the opposite of the teachings of Jesus or the Anti-Christ Party;

I've heard people quote how Christianity is about "love" and "turn they cheek". But if the people who most loudly claim to be Christians support violence above all else and quote Bible verses such as "Vengeance is mine said The Lord" as justification for violence, then are we talking here maybe about an unacknowledged cultural blood lust inspired by the fearmongering and war mongering by the GOP.
