Pope Francis : Gun Manufacturers are NOT Christians

Lets make the Vatican a ‘Gun Free Zone’ – Pope Francis : Gun Manufacturers are NOT Christians

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.”

  1. The Catholic Church has been using weapons for centuries and now the Pope has the gall to condemn guns. In fact, the Swiss Guards which may look like toy soldiers but they are actually all trained and experienced military men serving in the oldest continuously operating unit in the world. That looks pretty good on a resume. In fact, the Pontifical Swiss Guard are the defacto military of the Vatican City, an independent country of just .17 square miles (110-acres) in size located inside Rome, Italy. They are responsible for the security and safety of the Pope as well as the Papal facilities.

  2. Nothing wrong with trying to fix your image but doing it at someone elses expense is wrong and deceitful.

    “If you trust only men you have lost,”. Yes, trust is lost as a result of sexual abuse, yet by stooping to using some deception and using knee jerk anti-gun statements this Pope is attempting to renew peoples “trust” in the Catholic churchs leaders and even garner new trust for them from among Facebook youth in spite of the Catholic churchs ongoing costly sex scandals. Talk about damage control!

    Has the U.N. got a hold on the Vatican? Next, this Pope will be condoning abortions as a solution for unemployment.

  3. Since the Vatican is a major stockholder of the Beretta Arms Company. This means the Pope just admitted that the Catholic Church isn’t Christian?
