Let us be blunt here. Last week Pope Francis put himself squarely on the wrong and dark side of history. On a flight from Sri Lanka to the Philippines he was asked about the Islamist massacres in Paris. His responses were chilling.
“Let’s go to Paris, let’s speak clearly. One cannot offend, make war, kill in the name of one’s own religion, that is, in the name of God,” he said. He then explained that freedom of expression was a “fundamental human right” but must be exercised “without giving offence.”
Pope Climate Change is proving himself very fallible.
