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”.

Vatican on Pope's comments about Paris Attacks: He does not condone violence

2015-01-16

The Vatican's spokesperson, Fr. Federico Lombardi clarified the Pope's comments on the Paris attacks, adding that the Pope does not condone violence. On the papal plane, he told journalists that killing in the name of God is an aberration, but faith, should not be mocked. 

POPE FRANCIS 
"It's true that one cannot react violently, but if Dr. Gasbarri, who is a good friend of mine, insulted my mother, he should expect a punch.”

Through a statement, Lombardi said that the Pope's off the cuff remarks referenced the spontaneous reaction one can have when feeling deeply offended. A reaction that comes when one, feels violated. 

It was an example, said Lombardi, to illustrate that faith is something that's deeply felt. 

He then added that the Church is not indifferent to faith being mocked. But obviously,  there must be a balance and tolerance, he added, when it comes to respecting rights. 


The Pope on many occasions has condemned the attacks against the French magazine, adding that God should never be used as an excuse to kill.
