Days Before U.S. Election, Pope Francis Warns Against Politics of Fear



Catholic Review: “In a speech delivered at the Vatican just three days before the U.S. presidential election, Pope Francis urged social justice activists from around the world not to give into the politics of fear by building walls but instead work to build bridges.

“Because fear—as well as being a good deal for the merchants of arms and death—weakens and destabilizes us, destroys our psychological and spiritual defenses, numbs us to the suffering of others,” he said.

In the end,” he continued, “it makes us cruel.”

Opinion: In the end your lawless one, illegal immigration destroys the rule of law – In the end your Marxist one the right to bear arms protects us from tyrants like you – In the end your unholiness, partial birth abortion destroys life itself.

And that is cruel.
