Do we really want peace? Then let’s ban all weapons so we don’t have to live in fear of war.
— Pope Francis (@Pontifex) April 29, 2018
Ban all weapons? Kitchen knives? Rocks? Automobiles? Does the Pope want us to live in the Stone Age? No, stones will be banned. What he is actually advocating is totalitarian government control of a defenseless populace.
If someone hits someone else over the head with a volume of Pope Francis’ statements, will that volume, too, have to be banned?
In this age of advancing jihad and ongoing Muslim persecution of Christians, for Pope John Lennon to be making statements such as this one is the height of irresponsibility, and worse. Pope Francis is working actively to ensure that as many Catholics as possible are ignorant, complacent, and unprepared in the face of the jihad threat. He is betraying his people, and the free people of the world, as well as those who yearn to be free.
