WHAT?! Pope Francis Says You Can’t Make or Invest in Guns and be a Christian

I’m not a religious person, but I was raised Catholic and like to give The Pope the benefit of the doubt. And a lot of what this Pope says lately gets taken out of context and lost in translation.  That said, The Pope said what now?

While speaking in Turin, Italy, he stated, “If you trust only men you have lost. It makes me think of … people, managers, businessmen who call themselves Christian and they manufacture weapons. That leads to a bit a distrust, doesn’t it?”

The pope then chastised those who invest in weapons industries saying, “duplicity is the currency of today … they say one thing and do another.”

Luke 22:36 comes to mind, “Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.” If nothing else, this Pope at least keeps things interesting.
