​Pope Francis, Pontiff says attacks shows “world is at war”, religion not to blame


Francis took the microphone again and said he wanted “to clarify” that he was not referring to a war of religion.

Pope Francis said on Wednesday that a string of recent attacks, including the murder of a priest in France, was proof that the “world is at war “.

However, speaking to reporters aboard a plane taking him to Poland , the pope said he was not talking about a war of religion, but rather one of domination of peoples and economic interests.

“The word that is being repeated often is insecurity, but the real word is war ,” he said in brief comments to reporters while flying to southern Poland for a five-day visit.

“Let’s recognise it. The world is in a state of war in bits and pieces,” he said, adding that the attacks could be seen as another world war, specifically mentioning World War One and Two.

“Now there is this one (war). It is perhaps not organic but it is organised and it is war, ” he said. “We should not be afraid to speak this truth. The world is at war because it has lost peace.”

About 15 minutes later, after greeting journalists individually, Francis took the microphone again and said he wanted “to clarify” that he was not referring to a war of religion.

“Not a war of religion. There is a war of interests. There is a war for money. There is a war for natural resources. There is a war for domination of peoples. This is the war ,” he said.

“All religions want peace. Others want war. Do you understand? ” he said.

He called Jacques Hamel, the priest forced to his knees by Islamist militants on Tuesday who then slit his throat, “a saintly priest “, but said he was just one of many innocent victims.

He thanked the many people around the world who have sent their condolences over the killing of Father Hamel, particularly French President Francois Hollande, who spoke to the Pope on Tuesday.

  1. I will bring down the Catholic church. I will bring down Islam too. Defiled religon is to blame reje3cting the cornerstone. They lied as to what Satann looks like. That made Muhammad to not say get behind me Satan in the name of Jesus who is the Lord or Glory. Satan does not look like you think. 2 Corinthians 11:14: And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

    ◄ Ezekiel 28:13 ► 13Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious
    stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the
    onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold:
    the workmanship of thytabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. 14Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so:
    thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the
    midst of the stones of fire.
    15Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till
    iniquity was found in thee.
    That is who Muhammad saw. That description in Ezekiel is not an earthly king. There were no earthly kings in the Garden of Eden.

    Satan thought Kill when humanity fell going after helpless stars doing the big bang. That mentality is in ISIS. It is the height of stupidity to want to do what Satan wants to do. Satan does not look like you think. That being is the abomination of desolation.

      1. This is not what art depicts. 2 Corinthians 11:14: And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

        ◄ Ezekiel 28:13 ► 13Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious
        stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the
        onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold:
        the workmanship of thytabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. 14Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so:
        thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the
        midst of the stones of fire.
        15Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till
        iniquity was found in thee.
        That is who Muhammad saw. That description in Ezekiel is not an earthly king. There were no earthly kings in the Garden of Eden.
