'Please stop!', Pope Francis makes plea for peace
Youtube.com ^

Posted on 07/27/2014 5:29:59 PM PDT by RoosterRedux

Pope Francis made an emotional plea for peace on Sunday in an impromptu addition to comments delivered at his weekly Angelus address in Saint Peter's Square.

As the Argentinian-born pontiff wrapped up his regular address to the faithful, he spoke of the upcoming centenary of the outbreak of World War One and said his thoughts were on the Middle East, Iraq and Ukraine in particular.

With his voice appearing to crack with emotion, the pope broke off from his scripted remarks to make a direct appeal for fighting to end.

"Please stop!, I ask you with all my heart, it's time to stop. Stop, please!"

Like the naive young lady across the street with the “Give Peace a Chance” bumper sticker. Yeah, that’ll work if you don’t mind that one side gets exterminated.

Why is this guy pope? It certainly isn’t the Holy Spirit’s work. Or I am wrong about everything.

So far, he seems like nothing more than a weak-minded, soft headed South American commie tool.

This pope is ignoring the killing of Christians. He is doing nothing.

He’s an idiot. Not surprised that as a Commie he would be admonishing Israel to “please stop.”

The article is from Reuters (see behind the link).

Egalitarian that he is, he realizes that no religion is superior to any other religion.

Is defending an innocent from a killer wrong. That is a form of war.

Would you step aside while your children are abducted by a molester because it would be wrong to fight back.

War is most certainly not wrong if it is justified.

Please tell us all that you misspoke.

I agree...but I don't think he's got the guts to get into a REAL fight.

He would rather fight capitalists than muslims.

The Roman Church has gone soft.

But considering that Rome is full of Vatican Queers...why not?

Dear Pope Francis,

Grow a pair and defend your brethren that are being slaughtered world wide.

There’s a lot of issues that the Pope could say, “Stop!”

Israel should kick butt for once to get it done! I side

with the good guys not the terror groups.

Has Christianity become so soft that it can’t perceive the difference between evil, and the need to struggle against it?

This guy and, sadly, a growing number of Christian leaders wouldn’t recognize evil even as it’s teeth sinks into their necks.

You’re not likely to find a “weak-minded” Jesuit. I’m not on board with him on this or much of anything else, but I think he should be underestimated in that regard.

You know, or should know, that can’t possibly be true.

I didn’t realize you were paraphrasing what Pope Francis has been alluding to. So yes, especially the Pope should know that not all beliefs are the same.

But I wonder what he truly believes sometimes.

The last time the Muzzies got this out of control the various Popes had the balls to fight the Crusades.
