The Pope addresses the Bologna University students and speaks of the right to culture, hope and peace, We need words that reach the minds and hearts. His appeal against war, We are not neutral, but stand for peace!
We have the right not to be invaded on a daily basis by the rhetoric of fear and hatred, the right not to be overwhelmed by populist slogans or by the disturbing and profitable spread of fake news. Francis pointed out during his meeting with students and the academic world of Bologna, in Piazza San Domenico, during which he renewed his appeal to take distance from the reasons of war and not to be neutral, but stand for peace.
Arriving late from St. Peters Cathedral, where he had just met priests and religious men and women, the Pope entered the basilica and paused for a few moments in prayer in the chapel before the reliquary of St. Dominic. Then he went out onto the square where he was greeted by a student and the rector of the University of Bologna, Francesco Ubertini, who gave him the Sigillum Magnum, the Universitys highest honor.

How about the right not to have one’s body invaded by the dirty, unwashed, diseased penis of a middle eastern man?
Like Climate Change propaganda. I'm on that, Popester.
