"Holy Shit!"

 TURIN, Italy — People who manufacture weapons or invest in weapons industries are hypocrites if they call themselves Christian, Pope Francis said on Sunday.
Francis issued his toughest condemnation to date of the weapons industry at a rally of thousands of young people at the end of the first day of his trip to the Italian city of Turin.

"If you trust only men you have lost," he told the young people in a long, rambling talk about war, trust and politics after putting aside his prepared address.

"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?" he said to applause.
He also criticized those who invest in weapons industries, saying "duplicity is the currency of today 

... they say one thing and do another."

Francis also built on comments he has made in the past about events during the first and second world wars.

He spoke of the "tragedy of the Shoah," using the Hebrew term for the Holocaust.

"The great powers had the pictures of the railway lines that brought the trains to the concentration camps like Auschwitz to kill Jews, Christians, homosexuals, everybody. Why didn't they bomb (the railway lines)?"

Discussing World War One, he spoke of "the great tragedy of Armenia" but did not use the word "genocide."
Francis sparked a diplomatic row in April calling the massacre of up to 1.5 million Armenians 100 years ago "the first genocide of the 20th century," prompting Turkey to recall its ambassador to the Vatican.

I know some of my Comrades here don't like this guy on principal. Mostly because they feel he either didn't do anything or not enough during the U.S. sponsored Argentine "Dirty War".

Well I like'em.

This cat is up there with John the XXIII who did what the Church would not,...save as many Jews, and others from the Death Camps during WW2. This when he was just a priest.

Pope Francis actually sez stuff that could get him offed. A tradition in the Church. You know how the Curia shows up to say how, "...his holiness has sadly pasted away in his "sleep".

A bunch of Popes went that route back in the day when they stepped on the wrong toes.

Aw ya knows how complicated this is for me. What with my being a former good "Katlick" boy'n all. Never mind my problems with religion it's crimes, and my screwed up faith. This guy is above, and beyond that noise.

Hey this Joker's the Real Fuck'n Deal!

This here is the first Pope since John XXIII that I believe I could personally speak to about all my shit, and he'd hear me out with a full Heart.

Com'on Comrades the elections of both John XXIII, and Francis,...who btw doesn't use numbers after his name. These two guys showed up at the right historic moments. Heck what's that if not some Mighty Hocus Pocus or just an old fashioned Miracle.

Here's our Hero going to work on the Subway. The G-ddess operates in seriously weird ways.

Stay Tuned.
