Pope Francis At UN Calls For A ‘Complete Prohibition’ Of All Nuclear Weapons ⋆ Now The End Begins : Now The End Begins

pope francis un address2015Pope Francis, fresh off his spectacular launch of his political career with his speech before Congress yesterday, addressed a packed house at the United Nations General Assembly in New York City. At barely 5:00 minutes into his speech, he had already repeated the same catch-phrase “oppressive lending systems” multiple times. Evidently, the head of the world’s richest corporation, the Vatican, does not seem to like capitalism for anyone else. As with yesterday’s stump speech, the Pope did not mention Jesus Christ at all, and only gave vague, generalized references to God. He warned of a “Pandora’s box” that would be opened and cause grave global harm, and that a “framework must be put in place” to prevent it. Taking all nuclear weapons is part of his “framework”. Leaving that, the Pope went on to say that the environment was a “living entity” that must be afforded rights and privileges like as a human being would be. He stopped just short of invoking Mother Gaia, but he sure came close.[,,,,]
