Leftists aren’t the only enemies of the Catholic Church who stand to benefit from Pope Francis. Muslims will gain too. Francis agrees with terrorists that one must not offend the followers of Mohammad.
Like virtually everybody, Pope Francis formally disapproves of the horrific Charlie Hebdo massacre, which was carried out to curtail freedom of speech on behalf of Islam…
But the 78-year-old pontiff also said “each religion has its dignity” and “there are limits”.
“If a good friend speaks badly of my mother, he can expect to get punched, and that’s normal. You cannot provoke, you cannot insult other people’s faith, you cannot mock it,” he said. …
“Freedom of speech is a right and a duty that must be displayed without offending,” he said just before arriving in the Philippine capital of Manila.
So long as some can silence others by belligerently claiming to be “offended,” there is no freedom of speech. Pope Francis has effectively announced that he sides with Al Qaeda and Obama against this fundamental liberty. Making this announcement immediately after Muslims killed 17 people in France in an attack on freedom of speech is, to put it as mildly as possible, not responsible.
What Obama is doing to America, Francis will do to the Catholic Church.
