Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Pope calls for respect for the “legitimate religious differences” to build peace

2012-09-12

Benedict XVI
"Let us ask God to give this part of the world their desired peace while respecting legitimate differences. I urge all Christians in the Middle East, both those who were born there, and those who later arrived there, to be peacemakers and agents of reconciliation.”

His words were not directed toward the assault on the consulate but rather the current situation in Lebanon, where the Pope will travel to on Friday. It's a country where Christians have a long history of living in peace with other faiths.

But still many Christians are fleeing the Middle East due to the political and social instability. There has also been a large amount of discrimination against Christians in the region. 

Benedict XVI
"I call on the whole Church to solidarity, so that they can continue to give witness to Christ in these blessed lands, seeking communion in unity."

After the deaths were confirmed by the US government, the Vatican came out with it's own statement saying "the essential premise for peaceful coexistence among peoples is the deep respect for the beliefs, texts, great characters and symbols of different religions.”
