Francis spoke to reporters on the papal plane en route from Rome to Poland, where he began a five-day visit Wednesday.
Asked about the slaying of an 85-year-old priest in a Normandy church on Tuesday, Francis replied: "the real word is war...yes, it's war. This holy priest died at the very moment he was offering a prayer for all the church."
He went on: "I only want to clarify, when I speak of war, I am really speaking of war ... a war of interests, for money, resources. ... I am not speaking of a war of religions, religions don't want war. The others want war."
Phew! I thought we were in a war against a RELIGION (loosely defined)! Good to see we are not!
One of the terrorists had a handgun and began to shout “Allah Akbar” and the other had a fake bomb with a timer… They then gave a “sermon in Arabic” at the altar.
|Religious war??? No! What gave you that idea???|
