Borgias Come Back! Pope Climate Change Now Pontificates “‘You Cannot Insult the Faith of Others’

“You cannot provoke. You cannot insult the faith of others. You cannot make fun of the faith of others.”

  • “If my good friend Dr. Gasparri says a curse word against my mother, he can expect a punch. It’s normal. It’s normal,” he said. “You cannot provoke. You cannot insult the faith of others. You cannot make fun of the faith of others.”

    So now the Pope is endorsing blasphemy laws (if I understand him), justifying violence in the face of insult, which, in this context, can only read as an at least partial excuse-making for the Charlie Hebda massacre, and also describing the circumstances in which he, the Pope, would go about physically attacking someone.

    I think he needs to resign.

      “If my good friend Dr. Gasparri says a curse word against my mother, he can expect a punch. It’s normal. It’s normal,” he said.”

      I don’t believe in blasphemy laws, but I can live with the sort of thing Frankie the Pope is discussing in this section, Mamba. People should expect swift consequences to their actions and behaviour. I absolutely believe in the so-called “disproportionate response”. The trouble now is that folk are not permitted to provide an immediate reckoning for antisocial or criminal behaviour.
      The larger response to the islamite atrocity of last week should have been for France to shut off mohameddan immigration, but they won’t.
      Overwhelming response is the only thing these subhumans’ tiny minds can grasp. Beating THEM into “submission” either physically or legally so that they either leave or never come into the West to begin with is the only answer.
      Of course this will not happen in my lifetime. That does not mean that I won’t be witness to scenes of civil war at some point, I expect.

      • We will likely see a much bloodier version of Brixton at the least in the near future, but sadly Europe is surrendering itself.

          There may be trouble after the Friday khutba – Charlie Hebdo survivor edition will be on sale in Britain tomorrow.

            Maybe dhimmi Cameron and all the Brit politicians should stand guard at the news outlets selling the Charlie paper so they can experience the diversity they endorse for their country.

    • It is an explicit endorsement of both blasphemy laws and further evidence of this Pope’s willingness to appease Muslims. His actions in Jerusalem are another indicator of where he stands on the political spectrum.

    • A slightly different take from Reuters:

      He affirms respect for human life but forgetting Jesus’ words about the sword and ‘let he who is without sin” and so forth.

      Upside: justified violence on progressives.

    Freedom has never been high on the agenda of the Catholic Church. They used to burn people at the stake for blasphemy, and would probably not object to doing it again.

    I would argue, and argue as a religious person, that religion must be mocked and insulted. It doesn’t grow in the shade, but in the harsh light of the public forum. My God is powerful. He can not be harmed by your slings and arrows, and may get a good laugh at some of them.

    You cannot consider yourself a civilized society unless you can laugh at religion, and your religion can tolerate the laughter. You don’t have to like it.

    The Pope appears to have aligned the Church with Barbarism.

    • He has so far not inched up in my “Good Pope” rankings, his fatuous statements lend him zero credibility.

    • Except that free will is at the core of its belief (check the Catechism).

      Not only were fewer people ever killed in the much-exploded myths of the Inquisition than in Islamist attacks, no one would ever propose going back to the dark days of sectarian violence.

      It is clear that Pope Francis has not learned from Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI’s experiences. There is always offense and no appeasement.

  • This pope is a dope!!

  • mobuyus

    When will the assholes understand that nothing we do will satisfy these barbarian apes.Everything we do pisses them off.To the pious muslim our very breathing upsets them,our shadow disturbs them.Well fuck them they have a very big reckoning coming their way.The world will be better off without this cult, and the sheep that follow it will find some other system to fall in line behind.Oh and fuck the pope,he should enter a gay relationship with jimmy carter and they can be muslim together.

      Well now, so that’s how you feel! Well said.

    “You cannot provoke. You cannot insult the faith of others. You cannot make fun of the faith of others.”

    So the Pope is going to declare war on the NYT?

    • Exile1981

      No you miss understand; it’s no insulting a religion it’s freedom of the press when it’s against Catholics or Jews.

    • Solo712

      I guess he is threatening to unleash the albinos of Opus Dei.

  • ntt1

    The pope has become Anglican ! the Schism is healed.

  • The Goat

    This pope has gone full retard.

  • simus1

    “Cardinal’s Choice”, Flaky Frank, the popehead, true son of his native shithole, Argentina. “His president” has of late been caught trying to derail a terrorism inquiry looking into Iranian complicity in a mass murder of Jews there some years back. Seems it is interfering with enhanced trading opportunities being offered to her by her new friends in Tehran.
    No doubt FF will not be lecturing her on the moral shortcomings of whoring out his country to muslim fanatics.

  • RevnantDream

    This will be the last Pope . hes the religious Obama of the catholic church. Another leftist mole with Islamic love songs

  • Maggat

    “-cannot insult the faith of others”. Sorry Frank, I can and I will. Having said that I don’t simply because I do not particularly like it, HOWEVER, I have the right to do so and should I want to, I will!

  • Oh, they’re nuts about the Pope now over in Saudi. From the Arab News: Mariah • 6 hours ago

    Why everything comes so late, even then he should have said this much before as further nobody dares to do this again in future.

    I wonder if she’s right. If she’s wrong, and people do “dare to do this (i.e.criticize Islam) again in future”, it won’t be thanks to this Pope.
