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: Religious Persecution attacks peace and it belittles our dignity

2014-06-20

Religious liberty is present, said the Pope, when people can express their faith publicly and not just in private. 

POPE FRANCIS
"The fact that religious persecution still exists and that it provokes war is unacceptable. This damages our rationality, it's an attempt against peace and it belittles the dignity of men and women.” 

The Pope addressed an international conference on religious liberty, welcoming the group to the Vatican. 

He said that, nowadays, Christians are persecuted more than in the early days of the Church. There are also more martyrs now, he explained,  than centuries ago. 

POPE FRANCIS
"It pains me a great deal to know that Christians, from around the world, suffer the most from this discrimination. This is happening more than 1,700 years after Constantine signed the Edict of Milan, granting Christians the right to express their faith freely.” 

The International Conference was carried out by Rome´s LUMSA University and St. John´s University School of Law, to delve into how religious freedom can affect both international law and global conflict.
