As I have said before, the world is turned upside down. What is right is wrong and what is wrong is right. The twisting of the truth, the deception of lies. What in the world is Pope Francis talking about now?! He is urging “Christians” to abolish torture?
Seems to me he is barking up the wrong tree. Do you suppose he meant to say that he is urging Muslims to work together to abolish torture? No I suppose not, that would make sense! But this is what the Pope said today at St. Peter’s Square, that he is urging Christians to work together to abolish every form of torture. I don’t see any remarks made about our so called “friendly” Muslims around the world, who are killing, maiming, torturing, attacking, murdering, slaughtering, and threatening the lives of millions of Christians around the world. What in the world is the Pope thinking? What has he been smoking?
Here is an article posted today by Fox News:
VATICAN CITY – Pope Francis is urging Christians to work together to abolish every form of torture, condemning the practice as a grave sin.
Francis told the public in St. Peter’s Square Sunday he wanted to reiterate his “firm condemnation of every kind of torture.” He sought united efforts to work for torture’s end and to support victims and their families.
Francis said it was a “mortal sin, a very grave sin, to torture people” and noted that Thursday marks the United Nation’s day for torture victims.
Torture was a powerful tool of the military regime ruling his native Argentina from 1976 till 1983. The local church hierarchy then openly sided with the junta.
Francis has been credited with saving lives of political dissidents while a Jesuit priest in Argentina.
