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”.

2016-06-06

The Pope held a meeting at the Vatican with a hundred judges from around the world. They participated in the Summit of Judges on human trafficking and organized crime that brought together legal experts to analyze this scourge and seek to combat it.

Pope Francis praised the work of judges who often work under pressure and threats. So he told them that they are called to bring hope to how  justice works so that injustice does not have the last word.

He also condemned the traffickers whom he described as "the new slave hunters.”

POPE FRANCIS
"Victims are often betrayed even in the most intimate and sacred ways a person can be violated, that is, in love they aspire to give and take and that her family owes or who promise their suitors or husbands who instead end up selling them on the black market forcing them into hard labor, prostitution or sale of organs.”

Pope Francis explained that the Church is also called on to engage in the field of politics and again requested the abolition of the death penalty.

Then the pope signed a declaration in which the signatories make a number of proposals to end modern-day slavery. Among these measures, he asked to use the assets seized from traffickers in the rehabilitation and compensation of victims, the punishment of clients of sexual services or prostitution and forced labor are considered crimes against humanity.
