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: Some think that in order to be good Catholics they have to be like rabbits

2015-01-20

When a journalist asked Pope Francis about birth control during an impromptu press conference on the papal plane, Pope Francis said contraception isn't the answer, but rather 'responsible parenthood.' He explained it with graphic words. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Some think that, excuse my expression, that in order to be good Catholics they have to be like rabbits. No! Responsible parenthood!” 

Responsible parenthood, meaning Catholic  couples, in good conscience should decide how many children they can raise. Through his words, the Pope defended natural planning methods. The most popular one is known as the Billings Ovulation Method. 

He also talked about future travel plans. In September the Pope will visit the city of Philadelphia, New York and Washington D.C. But a trip to Mexico, will have to wait. 

POPE FRANCIS
"The three cities are Philadelphia, for the World Meeting of Families. Then New York, I have the date already but I can’t remember. I will go visit the UN... and Washington.” 

He also denounced corruption, sharing how once back in Argentina he was offered roughly $400,000 dollars to help the poor. But in exchange, money laundering was involved. 

POPE FRANCIS
"At that moment I thought about what I would do. Either I insult them and give them a kick where the sun never shines,  or I could play the fool. I played the fool and said. 'Well here in the  vicariate, we don’t have a bank account. You would have to make the deposit to the archdiocese and ask for a receipt.' And that was it. 'Oh, we didn't know,' they said. Then they left.”

One of the passengers, Mexican journalist Valentina Alazraki, celebrated her birthday that day. So, a little impromptu celebration was held with the Vatican press corps and the Pope.
