This Pope is bad news.
Why is it that Pope Francis seems to talk more about politics and Donald Trump than he does Jesus?
At least that’s how it seems to me!
Every time I turn around, there’s a new Pope Francis headline. But the story is never about Jesus. It’s usually about taking away our guns, or attacking Trump, or some other goofy far-left talking point.
And he’s at it again.
Yup, here is Pope Francis calling for a ban on all guns:
Do we really want peace? Then let’s ban all weapons so we don’t have to live in fear of war.

That’s the nice way of putting it.
The way I’d put it is he wants to grab all our guns.
And of course historians know how things turn out when a leader confiscates all the guns. See Germany.
So this guy is either ignorant, tone deaf, or intentionally devious. I don’t like any of those options.
Luckily, the DailyWire pointed out that the Tweet didn’t go the way Francis had hoped:
On Sunday, the head of the Roman Catholic Church proposed banning all weapons so that the world could live in peace without “fear of war.”
Pope Francis tweeted: “Do we really want peace? Then let’s ban all weapons so we don’t have to live in fear of war.”
Francis’ tweet was met with harsh criticism and mockery on social media, as many pointed out numerous problems with the overly general and idealistic assertion. How exactly do you convince all nations, including those so committed to violence, like Iran, that they sponsor terrorism to disarm? Would his ban of “all weapons” include non-military weapons? What qualifies as a weapon? Knives, like London is now in the process of banning after its murder rate surpassed New York City’sdespite a gun ban? On the level of conflict between nations, a lot of today’s warfare is not fought using conventional military weapons but rather through economic and cyber means. Here are just a few of the thousands of responses to the Pope’s tweet:
Disarmament is not peace. There will always be a means with which to fight your enemies when you feel powerless- if not with arms, then with sticks or rocks, or whatever. Peace is when we choose to live in harmony because we can. Because we have the power to. https://t.co/0JIDvO8D0V
