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 on Middle East: It seems like human life is less important than oil

2015-06-15

During a meeting with organizations that help Christians in the Middle East and Eastern Churches, the cardinal Leonardo Sandri discussed what life is like for hundreds of thousands of persecuted Christians.

"Vilified, kidnapped, assassinated for being of Christ.”

The Pope echoed the cardinal's statements with a forceful speech condemning indifference toward the tragedy. He asked people not to have double standards.

POPE FRANCIS
"However, we should make an extra effort to remove those seemingly tacit agreements by which the lives of thousands upon thousands of families-women, men, children, elderly-seem to be less important than oil and weapons. While peace and justice is proclaimed, traffickers of death operating in these lands are tolerated.”

Later, he asked the groups to not stop denouncing crimes against Christians, which attack the dignity of humanity. He also asked that they fight so that young people in places like Eritrea and Ethiopia do not have to take risky voyages in order to find a place where they can have a future.
