Pope Francis: There Are Limits To Freedom of Expression

Pope Francis spoke about the Paris terror attacks, defending free speech as not only a fundamental human right but a duty to speak one's mind for the sake of the common good. But he added there were limits. While Francis insisted that it was an "aberration" to kill in the name of God and said religion can never be used to justify violence, he said there was a limit to free speech when it concerned offending someone's religious beliefs. By way of example, he referred to a friend: "if someone says a curse word against my mother, he can expect a punch". "There are so many people who speak badly about religions or other religions, who make fun of them, who make a game out of the religions of others," he said. "They are provocateurs."

An aberration? Here are first of 4 definitions. 1. the act of departing from the right, normal, or usual course. 2. the act of deviating from the ordinary, usual, or normal type. 3. deviation from truth or moral rectitude. 4. mental irregularity or disorder; lapse from a sound mental state. 

I find it astonishing that he would make such a statement, considering MANY previous popes had their own standing armies. And usually, did not hesitate to use against foreign or innocent cultures. Popes would say, I'll give you badge and guarantee entrance into heaven. He can't do that, he does NOT have the power. And the Roman Catholic 'cult' is built upon conversion by force or deceit to this day.

Firstly Francis, islam is not a religion. Secondly, if they win, you lose your job, and maybe your eyes, hands and feet too. Lastly there is only one true faith, the rest are idolatries of the first degree.

Quit making such asinine remarks, it insults your 'flock' and 'antagonizes' those who are not. 

A punch you say? Then what will you do as I rise in anger? You certainly do perform things that allow the people to blaspheme the LORD.
