Vatican City, Mar 30, 2020 / 11:16 am (CNA).- In a private letter to an Argentine judge, Pope Francis is reported to have warned that government decisions to prioritize the economy over people could result in a viral genocide.
The governments that face the crisis in this way show the priority of their decisions: the people first. ... It would be sad if they opted for the opposite, which would lead to the death of very many people, something like a viral genocide, Pope Francis wrote in a letter sent March 28, according to America Magazine, which reported it had obtained the letter.
The pope sent a handwritten note in response to a letter from Judge Roberto Andres Gallardo, the president of the Pan-American Committee of Judges for Social Rights, Argentine news agency Telam reported March 29.
We are all concerned at the increase of the pandemic, Pope Francis wrote, while praising some governments for adopting exemplary measures with priorities that are well targeted at defending the population and serving the common good.
The pope also said he was edified by the response of so many people, doctors, nurses, volunteers, religious, priests, who risk their lives to heal and defend healthy people from contagion, Telam reported.
Pope Francis recounted in the letter that he has been in discussions with the Vatican Dicastery for Integral Human Development to prepare ourselves for what follows the global coronavirus outbreak.
There are already some consequences that must be faced: hunger, especially for people without permanent work, violence, the appearance of usurers (who are the true plague of a social future, dehumanized criminals), he wrote, according to Telam.

This guy. What a fraud.
Ah, more from the FALSE PROPHET to the ANTICHRIST.
I wonder if more will die from CoVid-19, or from drugs, alcohol, violence, and suicide from economic disaster...
This guys seems like a genuine dumb ass.
I’m half-waiting for him to say that the Imams are right and that the virus is not a hazard to the Faithful.
The “genocide” are the unborn baby murders that have been deemed “essential.”
This “Pope” is a Marxist/Globalist/ Social Engineer with no concern for the salvation of souls.
I wouldnt expect anything less from this fraud of a pope.
What the “ermeghad the RICH!” people don’t grasp: rich capitalists WANT a vibrant economy where everyone has disposable income and high cash flow. Impoverished masses don’t seek out stores with 100 kinds of spaghetti sauce nor $1000 cellphones nor other highly specialized products competing for wallets; impoverished masses buy as little as possible, supporting few product providers.
One reason Tesla and My Pillow and ... are keen on helping out with medical supply chain problems is: dead customers don’t buy specialty products.
this pope is beyond reprehensible. and stupid to boot.
He is a Communist tool and must be deposed by the Church very soon
The Pope has gone Full Retard.
“Never go Full Retard”
Frankie never disappoints
Pope Che strikes again.
By the Cardinals who put him there in the first place ?
not to worry Francis....the economy and livelihoods of we rabble have already been sacrificed.....even though we rabble are people too...
All actions and statements of this Pope should be viewed through the logic that he is an avowed socialist but I suspect Marxist. His writings affirm his socialism. I am not sure about his possible Marxism but do think he is a Marxist of logic.
This pope is destroying my church. I now go to a protestant church as my church under the guidance of this pope has left me. I did not leave my church, it left me. Hopefully in the future I can return to my church. It will never be under the guidance of this pope.
Maybe God will end the reign of Francois.
