Pope Francis Says You’re NOT Christian if You Support Gun Manufactures

Italy – -(Ammoland.com)- Pope Francis spoke with a group of young people at a rally of thousands at the end of the first day of his trip to the Italian city of Turin.

Francis started by attacking the Right to Keep and Bear Arms as well as accusing the allies during World War Two of being complicit in the killing of Jews, Christians and homosexuals.

Francis issued his toughest condemnation to date of the weapons industry, saying.

“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 (gun owners), saying “duplicity is the currency of today … they say one thing and do another.”

Francis also built on comments he has made in the past about events during the first and second world wars.

He spoke of the “tragedy of the Shoah,” using the Hebrew term for the Holocaust.

“The great powers had the pictures of the railway lines that brought the trains to the concentration camps like Auschwitz to kill Jews, Christians, homosexuals, everybody. Why didn’t they bomb (the railway lines)?”

It is surely an upside down world when the representative of G* on earth disparages the right to self defense and accuses the Greatest Generation of being complicit in Hitler’s genocide and the destruction of Europe and Russia.

In my honest opinion, this pope is a liar and a fake. He professes to be the spokesperson for GOD on earth. That is, in my opinion, total and complete bullshit. The Kingdom of heaven is within you all. The Kingdom of heaven is all around us. ALWAYS. God neither needs nor requires a pedophile, surrounded by gold, jewels and money, in a house with fancy stained glass windows, dressed in fine garments to tell us about GOD. And neither do I. This pope does not speak for GOD. And he sure as hell does not speak for me.

King9Whiskey

Well then, so glad to be of Hebrew lineage. And really, why is anyone still listening to a word that any of these pedophiles are spewing out?

The present Pope must himself be guilty of supporting gun manufacturers. When obviously he has armed guards, with GUNS, so it is hypocritical of him to think that way. I have a problem with a lot of this Pope’s opinions. Like our legislators, who when one of theirs is shot, want to be able to carry concealed, but when we are attacked they call for taking guns away from us and leaving us helpless. When they can carry concealed we can, that is our RIGHT, not a privilege.

Our so called “Christian” religion has killed thousands over hundreds of years while spreading the word PEACE. Where is it? I have never read the Bible as it was not written neither by Jesus or God but from a bunch of believers that no one knows how it’s writings were interpreted from Jesus words. So many Bibles out there, so many interpretations that who can say which is the true one. I carry my life unsullied and I believe in Jesus and there has been no Pope like John Paul before him or after him. I saw him very close… Read more »

You are correct. The only true way to descern the truth is to pray for guidance fro. GOD through the HOLY SPIRIT. HE WHY REVEAL IT ALL TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN FAITH AND ASK IT OF HIM.

LarryC

Manuel Perez, You wrote: “Our so called “Christian” religion has killed thousands over hundreds of years while spreading the word PEACE.” I respectfully disagree. I believe that number is millions, not thousands.

KevyK

LarryC.. can you list the dates and locations where Christians killed millions on people?

John Martin

This commentary is by a very anti-Catholic author who has a huge influence in American protestant circles: Matthew Henry Commentary 22:21-38 How unbecoming is the worldly ambition of being the greatest, to the character of a follower of Jesus, who took upon him the form of a servant, and humbled himself to the death of the cross! In the way to eternal happiness, we must expect to be assaulted and sifted by Satan. If he cannot destroy, he will try to disgrace or distress us. Nothing more certainly forebodes a fall, in a professed follower of Christ, than self-confidence, with… Read more »

You and my Bible disagree. How did Peter chop off the Roman guards ear.

Craig Butelo

Why do you believe in a god that promised to return soon and set the world right and “in one generation” and didn’t really come back and do anything. He doesn’t really heal. If he did insurance companies and hospitals would be out of business. How to you worship a god that commanded his people to take virgins as sex salves? “Now therefore, kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman who has known man by lying with him. But all the young girls who have not known man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.”… Read more »

The right to self defence? look at the sermon on the mount, where in “turn the other cheek, resist not evil, love your enemies” is the right to self defence even hinted at. As for righteous war, there is no such thing. Not when the Bible itself, in the letter of St James, says that war is sin. Go read the whole letter. Indeed pay attention to the whole bible and you will see that craving guns is idolatry

Macofjack

Meikie – Try looking at Joshua 6, Jericho; Joshua 7-8, Ai; Judges 7-8:21, Gideon; 1 Samuel 4:1-11, Philistines Take the Ark; 1 Samuel 15, Saul Against the Amalekites; 1 Samuel 17, David and Goliath; Revolations 19:11-21, Battle of Armageddon.

Got it now or do you need more!!

freewill

turn the other cheek does not refer to defending thy self..Jesus said..sell your garment and buy a sword….we dont worship guns Steve..we have them to protect our selves..we have them to compete in target competitions..we have them to hunt food..Godless people enslaved Christians all thru history..those that made weapons of war, conquered those that refused to make weapons to defend !!!

Craig Butelo

Freewill,
Good post except that it is usually god full people that enslave other people. They just believe in different god’s. Muslims against Christians. Christian slavers believed god wanted them to enslave blacks. Catholic against protestants. Tutsi against the Hutu tribes.

Craig Butelo

God commanded many wars and commanded that pregnant women be cut open and that children be dashed upon rocks. Of course there is no god, this was just men trying to pump up other people for battle, to win a war usually for territory .”And I will dash them one against another, even the fathers and the sons together, saith the LORD: I will not pity, nor spare, nor have mercy, but destroy them.” (Jeremiah 13:14) “And the Lord said unto him,……. And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite:… Read more »

Craig Butelo, I would respectfully suggest to you the following: Never confuse GOD with religion.

Steve Meikle

What part of turn the other cheek, resist not evil, love your enemies, all of which are in the Sermon on the Mount, is compatible with not only owning but demanding the right both own and use the means to do the exact contrary to these commands? And what part of trusting in weapons of war, a sign of rebellion against God and unbelief, is compatible with trusting God? I am not asking you to give up your guns, only to admit what , if you think you are Christians, your attitude to guns signifies

Macofjack

God also defended his children and took lives!! There are many examples in the bible. Be sure to read the entire book not just the parts you want’ to quote with your liberal BS. Looks to me like you just want it your way like all liberals. To bad you didn’t read the entire bible!

Argus Cronus

Christians with guns are not going to hell. Just as the Crusaders didn’t go to hell for fending off a Muslim invasion hundreds of years ago. Crypto-Jewish child traffickers and traitors posing as the Pope, conspiring to invade Europe with Muslims for white genocide are going to hell though. Look at the shameless hypocrisy of this psycho: https://usahitman.com/vbmsipb/

Wow! This is getting good.

The Letter J ~ Hermeneutics will educate you.

Gospel of John was written as an eyewitness of the events of Christ’s life and well before the Romans sacked the arrogant Jews, thus was the end to their promised land as it ceased to exist from that time forward as prophesied.

I’d suggest Colonel Ingus that you not allow your ineptitude to get the better of your linguistics.

Seek & you shall find the Truth ~ but keep in mind ‘seek’ is an ‘action’ are you capable?

Colonel Robert F. Cunningham

Starting with the PedophilePAPA … The letter “J” didn’t even exist until 1349 AD or come into common use about 100 years later, therefore the ‘name’ of “Jesus” didn’t either – check it for yourself — The NT Book of John is an outright forgery by the Roman Empire in establishing itself as the Roman Catholic Church and not one copy or reference to it is older than the Council of Nicaea held in 325-26 AD. I’d tell both the Roman Catholic Church, PAPA, harlot daughters and all to; SUCK OFF; but PAPA & Priesthood are too busy with children,… Read more »

The English language didn’t exist until at least 800 AD and material written in English prior to 1000 AD are nearly impossible for most English speakers to read. So who cares about the English letter “J”. The New Testament was written in Koine Greek. Ἰησοῦς is how Jesus is spelled in Koine Greek. Strong’s Number 2424. Many early church fathers quoted from the Gospel of John, proving the Gospel of John was completed not later than about 100 AD, but more likely prior to 70 AD. Early Christian writers often quoted from the New Testament. In fact, there are more… Read more »

Great post. Can you document or give me additional information on “The NT Book of John is an outright forgery by the Roman Empire in establishing itself as the Roman Catholic Church and not one copy or reference to it is older than the Council of Nicaea held in 325-26 AD”.
Thanks,
Craig

Bill

Hence why many refer to him as Yahshua or Yahweh… I think you are going a bit too far inferring that the church is nothing but pedos but thanks for helping me learn something new today about the letter “J”. The pope making a public statement like this makes him and his church look like hypocrites to anyone who is awake and not just some blinder wearing sheep with the inability to think for themselves…sadly a large majority in our world today seem to fall into that sheep category. Powerful men of “religion” have manipulated the masses not just for… Read more »

Sorry mr pope but I Am a Christian and I wholeheartedly support American gun makers first then others no matter what you say!

those who support pedophile priests are not christian, lets hear your views on that pope!!!

justtryit

Pope Francis-read your contract with the Church of Catholics! It doesn’t say a damned thing about political views on the Constitutional Rights of The Citizens of the United States. Now, say 1,000,000 Hail Mary’s, 500,000 Our Fathers; and go to the bathroom before you go to bed. Sleep tight, your “ARMED” guards are watch over you!

Bob

Yes and that is why the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH put all their money into the Nazi war machine and backed Adolph Hitler. Just like he is a marxist socialist like hussein obozo.

Gene Ralno

People are fed up with the recent jihadist movement and are in no mood to turn the other cheek. Sorry pope. Most of us are glad it ain’t up to you.

Al Schmidt

This Pope is possessed by Satan!

OK, then I’m not a Christian. Boo-friggin-hoo! Retard.

B.Zerker

That’s OK Francis. I’m know that I’m a Christian! A Christian that’ll never support a church with a socialist Pope that protects baby rapers.

Marshall Nabors

The Poop, er Pope, hasn’t got a clue what a Christian is if he thinks non-support of guns is a criterion.

Spanky

…….. Says the man who lives in a walled city with armed guards 24/7……

Thomas Murphy

Quite untrue! Towards the end of his life when he saw how bad the Romans were he stated to his disciples you better sell your shirt and use the proceeds to buy a sword! He also stated that he came to rule by sword! What does that mean? It means if there were Full Auto Weapons or whatever available to him then he would have been all for it! The Pope talks like he is the confused son of a Spanish whore (Tucco)

Thomas Murphy

Because he was “Betrayed” it means that he did not go willingly to his death!

Idadho

It is obvious the Poop is not a student of history. First, it was gun manufacturers in the US and other non-combat areas that supplied many of the guns that won WW II and freed the Jews still in the concentration camps. Those concentration camps and the rail lines to them were far behind enemy lines and more difficult to over-fly due to their distance from the bomber bases in England. The bombers were bombing the munitions factories, ball bearing factories and other war machine factories. Luke 22:36 suggest that the Poop is not even a student of the Bible.… Read more »

Where does he things manufactures get the money to build the weapons that protect him? I can truly say this, F off pope, you’re just another pansy commie

I have little to no use for any organized religion. If I were to study any new concept in a spiritual way of living I would study to chose for myself which ideology best correlates my own values. I will state most of the principles I follow today are rooted in Judeo-christian doctrine. If I were to chose any other belief to consider it would be Zenn. With this being stated we should all be thankful for the “Crusades” the christians never stopped fighting the “MURDEROUS MUSLIM SAVAGES’. Study the Muslim doctrine and you will find a geo-political doctrine that… Read more »

I like the Pope… But he isn’t God, or omnipotent, or a flawless leader. He is trying to convert the stanch hard-liners and ease negative understandings dating back centuries on centuries of Catholic teachings. As a Catholic brought up beginning in the late 50’s, 60’s and 70’s there was much exclusion, hypocrisy, and damnation for anyone who lived outside the Catholic Churches expectations. But the Pope hasn’t been in a war. Peace is only maintained by a strong involved population of citizens that should a need arise because of poor choices of government officials up to and including a President,… Read more »

The Bible is a huge book of broken promises.
Jesus promised to return in one generation, NOPE didn’t happen.
God promised the Jews over and over that they would have dominion over their enemy’s. Didn’t happen. He said that NO uncircumcised man would ever enter the city of Jerusalem. Better talk to my travel agent as he books thousands of people on holy land tours each year.
Nothing fails like prayer!

Raymond Miller

“WTF” ?

fit2Btied

Perhaps the Pope should read his Bible?

Luke 22:36 King James Version

36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

Craig Butelo

So the thousand of American soldiers that liberated the scores of concentration camps just made that up?
I am pretty sure that you are joking around. If not read a book or watch World at War on the tele.

The pope is either a moron or a liar. Informed people know the Holocaust Story is wartime propaganda.

I support Gun Manufactures 100% because the police and Govt cant protect you 100% of the time, but a gun can.

St. Gabriel Possenti was a Catholic seminarian whose marksmanship and proficiency with handguns single-handedly saved the village of Isola, Italy from a band of 20 terrorists in 1860. Pope Benedict XV canonized him in 1920. https://politicalvelcraft.org/2013/01/23/pope-benedict-has-not-endorsed-the-obama-administrations-gun-control-plans-saint-gabriel-possenti-patron-saint-of-gun-owners/

Sadly Ammoland fell for distortion of NWO propaganda ~ this distorted rube was to bastardize Pope Francis when he was speaking about the Military Industrial Complex which is making everyones life insufferable. Ammoland must use critical thinking skills at least to the sophmoric level to help lead their readers to Truth.

This article is pathetically distorted ~ do not fall for NWO propaganda.

He is no representative of God , he is nothing but a man. There is no mention in the Bible of a Pope , Only an admonition to call no man reverend! The Bible clearly states that those who add to the teaching of the bible will have the plagues written within it added to their lives and those that take away from the written word will have their names taken away from the lambs book of life. I would not want to be the pope on judgement day for he will surely burn in hell for all those he… Read more »

This senile old man needs to go crawl back into what ever hole he came out of because he knows nothing about the things of which he speaks. All he does is stir up controversy.

Keith Richards liver

I’m wondering when he plans to give up his team of guards and roll around in the pope mobile without any protection??
NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN!! Because hes the exception to the rule!
It’s just the average folks he thinks can’t have guns or protect themselves!

Raymond Miller

He obviously has the same attitude as Chas. Wrangle, we peons don’t need protection but he does. I am a Methodist but usually respect the Pope, but in this guys case, I can not do that. He is in m opinion an Obambam in Papal clothing.

Keith Richards liver

Oh the IRONY!
This guy has a team of highly trained armed guards and he has the gull to bash firearms?
Also it’s perfectly fine for priests to abuse children? He’s cool with that! Simply looks the other way and makes a few speeches and everything is fine.
This guy is a HACK!

Pope Francis is well known to politcally favor socialist-communist idealism, the same concepts well known for inherent the hypocracy of utopia. His Grace should abstain from meandering philosophically in the global treacherous waters of individual rights and freedoms. Perspectively, an ignorant background His is. May God bless him despite his misguided wisdom and influence.

Esteban Berberian

I wonder if he’ll also admit that the “infallible” popes of the inquisition are also going to burn in hell?

The Poop ain’t got a clue what a Christian is.

I think the Pope Francis can go to HELL

Who cares what “Luke” or “Jesus” said or didn’t say. The fact of the matter is that the church has been killing people since its inception to suit its own concerns using every weapon and manner of torture available to it “in the name of god”. So shut up Mr. Pope, you hypocrite!

LarryC213

I care not what this man says. I have a personal relationship with God, and I am quite comfortable with that. I am not a member of his supposed church. If he wishes to discuss past wrongs, let him begin with the great evils that his institution has committed and still commits.

Wow, have never seen such a storm of responses!
To whit, one of my favorite cartoons of all time was of two guys standing in front of St Pete at the gates of heaven, having a chat.
