Pope Francis caused a massive controversy with this shocking tweet

Pope Francis has millions of Americans scratching their heads.

He sent out a tweet attacking a fundamental value.

And he kick-started a massive controversy.



Pope Francis joined the liberal chorus in attacking the Second Amendment.

Francis fired off a tweet demanding governments ban all weapons.

This is another example of Pope Francis straying from his position of leader of the Catholic Church in order to wade into hot button American political controversies.



Pope Francis has fired off statements attacking nationalists, the idea of secure borders and has promoted the fake news hoax of man-made climate change.

His behavior has infuriated millions of Catholics.

They believe the Pope should stand for spiritual guidance and not meddle in Americans’ domestic political affairs that do not intersect with Church teaching.

Pope Francis calling for complete and total gun confiscation by the government is an outrageous attack on American values.



And the Bible never states you cannot defend yourself.

David was armed with a slingshot when he slayed Goliath and delivered a victory for the Israelites and those who believed in God over the pagan Philistines.

Pope Francis has presided over the most controversial tenure of any Pope in generations.

He’s assumed the role of left-wing political activist and he has divided the Church.

    Dear Pope, That is a great idea. Maybe you should read your Bible. War and attacks against the enemies of God is a central theme in the Bible. If God was so adverse to war then explain why God instructed Israel to take the promised land away from it’s original inhabitants? God encourages nations to fight against evil. Wouldn’t it have been wonderful if no one had weapons to fight Hitler? Pope Francis, there were pacifist during world war II that just surrendered to Hitler, and what happened? Weapons are not the problem, the evil hearts of man is the problem. Do I need to preach to you, the so-called spiritual leader of the world? I am very glad it is just a title bestowed on you, because you are certainly not infallible. Stick to something you know a little bit about. Maybe you priests, should worry less about wearing your collars backwards, and put your pants on backwards. That may equal less sexual abuse from you infallible SPIRITUAL LEADERS.

    Let’s call this what it is, a deflection from the sex scandals, you are personally involved in to a subject you are totally ignorant about. READ YOUR BIBLE, and do not become ignorant before the whole world!

    Not surprising coming from a Lefty Argentinian variety Jesuit–he is a fly in the sacred ointment of the Vatican–he got in because there are elements among the Vatican cardinals who wormed their way in & share his leftist views & voted him in.

  3. Lulu says:

    I think he’s destroying the Church from within. He’s not a pope and the Church needs to get rid of him now. I have not said this before, get out of my business and stay out and don’t tell me what I’ve said!!!!!!

      Thank you , you just said what I was going to say. I’ll just “ditto”. Hes not a pope and we need to get rid of him.

  5. Dolores says:

    The pope needs to stay out of our politics.

  6. David Teel says:

    He needs to go wash his beany out and spend more time taking care of pedophile priests!

  7. michael says:

    this pope is is not evil, he supports the common person!!

  8. michael says:

    i am fiercely independent, no one should hate and the constitution must be respected and upheld!!

  9. I don’t care for what Pope Francis believes, on a lot of thing. Catholics have had much better Popes before. i feel bad for Catholics, because the Pope has usually given them good advise, maybe it has something to do with how he was raised, he seems like a Communist to me.

  10. Jmac147 says:

    I was raised in the Catholic Church during a time when church was about religion no politics. As the U.S. & the world changed the church tried to be included all with their new modern ways. When those who were devote to it asked not demanded could they still have their latin masses & no guitars & such they were scolded & told no like little children. Then after I left because of the new ways & their entry into politics, their assaults on children my mother tried at the persistent request of her pastor for me to return. Then after all the years of devotion, financial donations, & free time working in one form or another my mother became ill with Alzheimer’s. I figured that her parish priest like the old days the would come, give her the sacraments & comfort her. Boy was I wrong she was treated like discarded trash & when questioned about it I was told by a priest that I must understand that were more important things like rallies for the illegal aliens, getting money to send to counties & people who hate us, & he had to set up his new free car the parish was getting him so he could attend to more pressing matters. But still no time for this sweet little old lady who gave her all to this church. The only redeeming thing that members of this religion did was when she had to go too a nursing home the Nuns their truly took great & loving care of her till the end. As for the church the U.S. Govt. stays out of it’s business maybe the pope & the church should get back to God’s work & mind their own business & maybe then some of their own internal problems will go away & they may get some to come back. PS but not me. Mac147

  11. Vigilant Sheepdog says:

    If the Pope can get the Mozlems to abandon and denounce Islam entirely and return to and rebuild their home countries, Then I might give his anti-2A stance a listen. Otherwise my weapons will stay safely in my possession.

  12. michael says:

    i am a devoted catholic, but the pope is dead wrong on this issue, our constitution states we have 2nd amendment rights, and i am thankfully not a conservative or a republican!!

    • Joseph N Scott Sr says:

      What are you? It does not matter. We stand together as Americans or we fall together. That is what The Establishment wants, to cause us to fall. Divide and conquer. Get us hating each other and fighting eachother so by slight of hand they, the deep state comunist, that completely control the DNC and almost completly control the GOP too wants. How do you know which polaticians are comunists? Start by studing the Communists Manifesto. When you hear a polotician spuing one-liner excerpts from it in the name of Democratic, Liberalism, Republicanism, or anything else just remember they are lieing so that they can take America from us. The Citizenry.

  13. Statesman Patriot says:

    Hey Pooopie,
    You speaketh of things you do not understand! Or if you do understand, you doeth the devils work!

    • Nancy says:

      I’m Catholic, and I agree Statesman. Trust me, Catholics that are Conservatives are not a fan of this POPE. This really has nothing to do with the Catholic Religion, the religion built on the Rock of Peter, first Christian Church after the Resurrection of Christ as there have been other evil POPE’S during those thousands of years. But Pope John Paul was most favored of all, he was exactly what a true Christian, a man of God is, this POPE is evil. Actually, it was prophesied, the last POPE is the evil POPE, One World Order!

    • JudiR says:

      Slingshots – that’s weapon enough.

      • Jay posner says:

        Let’s see, first we disarm his Swiss Guards then he can take down the wall ( not the one on our southern border but the one around the Vatican). Then we’ll see if he has the same thoughts about disarming.

  14. zee says:

    I Am a ‘recovering ‘ RC & proud of it. That Jesuit wearing a ‘white dress & beanie’
    NEEDS to ‘Tear Down That Wall (in Rome) & DisARM, Before he Speaketh re
    Any0ne else. BTW: David & Goliath a ‘true story’. Giants WERE Really Here.

    Thank you.

  15. Tim Toroian says:

    The pope needs to send this message to all the dick heads of the world who like to be dictators and/or take other people’s land. Putin being one.

  16. Jerry says:

    Why does the pope surround himself with a small army of guards at the vatican?do we know for sure if some are armed ?there are also walls at the vatican for security.

    • Vigilant Sheepdog says:

      All Vatican Security are armed. Armed with Uzi Submachine Guns under those fancy uniforms. Plus the Pike their carrying is a functional weapon. Thank you Armed Forces and History Channel.

  17. Dolores says:

    The pope needs to stick to religion

  18. Jerry says:

  19. Rolland Hamm says:

    Pope Francis is right in there guns should be banned. He is wrong in not seeing if guns were banned THEY WOULD BE USED and that use comes from the state of the human condition that is inherently problematic or flawed. The banning of guns removes the right to use guns to defend oneself and if guns are banned THEY WILL NOT BE REMOVED from those who use them to do others what they want to do to them to benefit themselves and bring harm to others. The Crusades initiated, supported and approved by the Holy Roman Catholic Church used guns to defend the church and accomplish elimination of enemies of the church using guns to do so. The point to make is using guns to defend can be the only way to do what has to be done to defend against those who have guns. The 6 million Jews who died in German concentration camps would have been saved if those with guns who came to save them did so earlier.

  20. Anastasia says:

    I am not a Catholic and I respect men of the cloth- they are the Lord’s. Messengers. In my assessment he is entering and voicing opinion in areas that he doesn’t understand. He should concentrate on the theology and teachings of his church and concentrate to direct the souls of his flock in the direction of the Lord’s teachings.

    • zee says:

      Beware > ‘ men of cloth’. Much High 0rder Deception. Truth . & that’s the way it is, so Sorry to say.

      • Anastasia says:

        Zee, thank you. I am always realistic. I see flaws even with men of the cloth. There are some who are flawed. I am confident they too will be judged by God.

  21. Francis, I’m a Catholic and I believe you should mind your own business when it comes to secular issues in other countries. As the pope you haven’t shown great leadership within the Church. The Catholic church is being overrun with Marxist theological Jesuit doctrine, you being a member. I resent being a member of a Catholic church lead by a man who respects LGBTQ rights over the rights of traditional conservative Catholics. I resent being a member of a Catholic church that is losing its way because of its leaderships failure to stand against the attacks of political correctness. I resent being a member of a Catholic church that puts the rights of another faith before that of its own. I resent being a member of a Catholic church which pays lip service to, but funds the political arms of Planned Parenthood. Pay attention to your own issues, pay attention to the spiritual needs of your flock, work to resolve them, before you enter the fray of domestic politics in other countries.

    • the man is NOT catholic. Many years ago Russia sent thousands of men all over the world to become “priests” to undermine the catholic church. It being the biggest obstacle to communism! I wondered where our real pope is Benedict…… We are in my estimation living in the Book of
      Revelation. The 3rd secret of Fatima has never been given to us and the request of the BVM was not done. She asked that all the bishops of t he world and the pope concentrate Russia to her. Why didn’t they do it and why didn’t they tell us the3rd secret? We have been let down by true but bad thinking clergy. Please stay with the church and watch your priest carefully. You can tell if he is a true priest or a pseudo one. AND PRAY
      Also ch out p;opeleoXII and 3days darkness. Better keep praying and prepare to live in a primitive fashion.

      • Nancy says:

        I had understood, this POPE is the evil POPE. He is a POPE for Liberals, Communist, Islam! He is from Argentina, because that’s where all Nazi’s fled after the War. It had been prophesied, but I am still shocked that the Cardinals elected him, he is the worst.

    • Anastasia says:

      God Bless! You are so right!

  22. Floyd Lehman says:

    Just look at how many demoKKKrats go along with KILLING OVER 61,000,000 unborn babies. They make the NAZI party look good. THEY JUST KILLED OVER 15,000,000 people

  23. Joseph N Scott Sr says:

    This does NOT surprise me. Im a believer and not ashamed, but this reminds me of history. Lets reflect on WWII. Then, the reigning elected emperor (pope) of the Vatican was in cohorts with Hittler and the Japanese. The Vatican was One World Order then and in my opinion the Vatican always has been and will be communists leaning. The only way any form of government can ever control the world is through disarmament of the masses. Those that seek to prevent the individual from bearing arms in self defense to stop atrocities are intent on the globalization and 1 world government at the cost of the individual freedoms that are Creator Given.

    • Joseph N Scott Sr says:

      The Vatican will never put America first. Why should he he isn’t American? He cares more about his power than America’s interest or freedoms.

  24. Harry says:

    Catholics go to Church to worship Jesus Christ, not this guy. He is occupying a seat until he is removed, but the Church of Christ will be here long after he is gone. The Crusades were called for by the Popes to protect the Holy Land, and the Christians that lived there, from the Muslim invaders. About 1,000 years later, and not much has changed. We are still fighting that devil of an enemy.

    The Crusader Knights didn’t have a pillow fight with the Muslim hordes; they used swords, Pikes, mauls, maces, and horse Cavalry to defeat their enemies. They didn’t give a damn about the Muslims’ feelings.

  25. Kate says:

    Sure, I’ll give up my guns when he has all of his armed guards give up theirs. The Pope lives in his elite world so far removed from reality. What ever happened to”poverty, chastity and obedience”? Since he is so focused on open boarders maybe he should also open up Vatican City to all illegal immigrants and take down the walls.
    The Pope should work on cleaning up the corruption and pedophelia in the Catholic Church before he starts criticizing other governments.

  26. James Mele says:

    It is obvious that those surrounded by armed protectors are the elites who demand the rest of us give up our means of self defense and protecting our loved ones. This pope is truly in never never land. As a Catholic I am sorry to have him as leader of the church. I would prefer someone who has a grip on reality

    • Harry says:

      St. Thomas Aquinas spoke and wrote about Self Defense, and Catholic Doctrine. They are not exclusive, or contradictory. A man has the GOD given, and natural right to Self Defense, and the defense of his family. This matter is accepted Catholic Doctrine, and has been decided upon. The matter is closed.

  27. Bob Hunt says:

    This Pope is in obvious need of psychiatric care! It is apparent to me that the group who appoints the Pope didn’t do enough homework!

  28. Jon says:

    My be the Pope should stick to what he knows and keep his mouth shut.

  29. Harry says:

    Global warming comes from Sun spots. The nonsense of Climate Change is a non starter. The climate has changed countless times in this planet’s history. We had an Ice Age 10,000 years ago. Would people prefer that, again?

  30. Marc Jeric says:

    What did you expect that Pope- a former street preacher of Marxism from Argentina – would say?

  31. Parduc says:

    If you really want peace, all governments and politicians should give up all their weapons 1st.
    Gun control is a hate crime.
    How does the Pope knows that “Global warming” is man-made and not God-made?

  32. Alan says:

    WIth respect, the pope should look to cleaning up the mess within the Catholic Church, BEFORE offering advise or pontifical direction unrequested I might note, to others.

  33. Mr Joe says:

    Religion has been responsible for many wars and the many killings in those wars. How many were killed during the Inquisition? The religious crusades resulted in hundreds of thousands killed. How would the Pope feel if someone called for the banning of religion so “so we don’t have to live in fear”?

  34. I don’t trust Pope Francis. Just part of the elitest swamp in the Catholic church.

    • Harry says:

      Many Catholics don’t recognize him as legitimate. He is taking an axe to 2,000 years of Church Dogma.

  35. David Brown says:

    Frances KNOWS that the following will not be fulfilled until Yeshua returns as King of Kings and Lord of Lords…the SAME way He left 2000 years ago (Acts 1:8-11) Why he thinks he has the advice on how to speed the fulfillment up is his wishful thinking.

    Isaiah 2

    “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
    to the temple of the God of Jacob.
    He will teach us his ways,
    so that we may walk in his paths.”
    The law will go out from Zion,
    the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
    4
    He will judge between the nations
    and will settle disputes for many peoples.
    They will beat their swords into plowshares
    and their spears into pruning hooks.
    Nation will not take up sword against nation,
    nor will they train for war anymore.

  36. Veronica says:

    I’m Catholic and I think the pope should stay out of polatics and. Try to save people who need it.
    Don’t get me wrong I love my church and I would never change my religen I’m seventy seven years old God chose Donald Trup to be our President and he is doing a great job. I shudder to think what would happen if Clinton had got in she had already sold the county out

  37. Jim says:

    This ‘pope’ needs to clean his own house first. Strange the vatican itself is a fortress. Tear down the wall and get rid of guards. Turn all the pedophiles over to the police. Maybe ole francis has a few skeletons he is hiding. He needs to restrain his thoughts to scripture and not politics.

  38. francis is the Anti-Christ! This $%# is NO pope! he is a fing communist bred in Argentina, where he should return rapido.

  39. Mike H says:

    First of all these are modern times. With countries who want to conquer each other. Which one of those countries do you think are going to give up their arms?I think none. The statements are not even worth mentioning in the times that we live in.

  40. SAINT BOSCOE says:

    let the pope talk assad and iran out of their weapons including the nukes,im sure he want have any problem,they will just hand them over

  41. Rich says:

    This from a man(and he is just a man) who lives in a city with a wall around it(which he was also against) and armed guards at the gates, but that’s ok he is safe, a true hipocrite he should go join the other commies in Russia or China . Freakin no count

  42. Wayne says:

    It’s the Crusades all over. There have been good Popes and bad. It’s all about power and money and it always will be. He’s making a power play because so many practicing Catholics have left the church over the last 100 years. It’s eaten into their money. Popes have been interfering in countrys’ governments since the beginning of the church. This SOP for the Popes.

  43. Sergio Pastor says:

    This argentinian asshole Pope Francis is a person who holds unorthodox opinions in any field not just merely religion, Maricon go a kiss the ass of the muslims!!!

  44. Kathy says:

    Francis, you need to practice what you preach…dismiss all the armed guards at the Vatican and open the gates and bring all the immigrants into your area, feed, cloth, educate them all. Your job is to preach and enforce church doctrine, not to get involved in American’s politics of which you have no knowledge and no business sticking your nose into. You are driving many Catholics away from the church while we are losing people in this atmosphere anyway…you are adding to their excuses for not supporting and going to church…shame on you. Your communist background is coming thru loud and clear..and let our president alone..he is doing very well.

    I read a news story about a guy who beat another guy to death with a boat oar. Guess the pope would have everyone up the creek without a paddle too.

  47. Cynthia says:

    Maybe Pope Francis should be more concerned about Christianity be attacked than trying to run the World…He has NO clue what the hell he’s saying as it applies to reality…Stick to religion Pope Francis and stay out of politics…

    • Joe says:

      We should always have a Pope from Italy .The last Italian Pope, John Paul I, was murdered over the corruption in the Vatican Bank

    • Both statements are wrong. Pope Francis is not attacking attacking the Second Amendment.
      Francis did not demand governments ban all weapons.
      He merely raised a question and then proposed a solution. Please don’t be like the liberals who find fault where there is none.

      • John Campbell says:

        Well said! Pope Francis is merely placing an ideal before the world. The spectacle of larger countries stockpiling weapons of mass destruction to be used in retaliation doesn’t bode well for a lasting peace.
        If we dont aim for the ideal we will just stay in a race to the bottom in our values. The Catholic Church has never said that the right to defend against violence is wrong.

    Pope Francis is perfectly right! Very wrong is the American maniacal worship for weapons!

    • Kent Sinclair says:

      I’m calling the popes sanity into question. He needs to be locked in a padded cell where he can’t do any more harm to the catholic church.

    • We don’t worship weapons. We just want the Constitution followed. It’s not a living document that needs changing. Just at times it needs amendments added like term lits. The shorter, the better. As far as the second Amendment goes, that is needed more now then when it was written. If law abiding Citizens lost there fire arms, they would be at the mercy of the lawless and a lawless Government. Having weapons is our right, we don’t worship them.

      • Alberto Bencivenga says:

        Ahahahahahahahah! You worship weapons to the extent that you gave them a place in your constitution! I brought my fire arms to Europe after spending around 50 years in East Africa and, in spite of me holding a licence as a professional hunter, before being permitted to bring my rifles home, I had to produce a certificate issued by a psychiatrist thaT I was of sound mind, a certificate of good conduct and I had to pass a strict exam to show tha I knew how to handle my weapons! But this happened in civilized Europe, not in the USA!

  51. Chet says:

    The Pope should focus on religious and charitable matters. He is a BIG reason, that I don’t want anything to do with the Catholic Church.
    I seriously wonder if he has any Biblical background at all.

  52. Vito D. says:

    Like Obama was put into power to try to diminish our standing in the world … Pope Francis was put in place to break down Catholicism and Christianity! He is a FRAUD!

  53. Joanna says:

    Francis, Are you really a POPE????

  54. Leslie Boggs says:

    Does this Pope actually read or even know scripture? The Lord will have the weapons destroyed and “beaten into plowshares” in God’s good time. Until then, the best defense against the enemies weapons is Godly and good people with better weapons!!!!! Nehemiah was told to prepare for battle with any and all weapons available as the walls of Jerusalem were being rebuilt. It is a liberal fantasy always seeming to be espoused by those constantly surrounded by security guards with weapons, as this Pope has. Your life is not more important than everyone elses. If it is such a great thing to disarm and open the borders of safe and secure nations, then every single one of you screaming about it constantly should unlock your doors, disarm your security, and open your gated, protected, private schools and communities. How about you do it FIRST and see how it turns out for you. You don’t and you won’t do it because you already know those protections are needed for the basic reason that bad and crazy people DON’T FOLLOW THE LAW!! Quit playing politics Pope, you have a safe secluded environment. Most of the world don’t live with your perks.

  55. Mike H says:

    This is why he’s one of the most unpopular popes. What world does he live in?

  56. XYZ says:

    what an IDIOT and ANTI Christ person, thinks he is Jesus on earth and is more evil that appears, a True Wolf in sheepish clothing , that Age Old Saying, when guns are outlawed then ONLY OUTLAWS WILL HAVE GUNS, what part of that is so hard to understand, see its true you CANT fix STUPID

  57. JLM says:

    This pope is a disappointment, and that is being kind. I am a conservative member of what has become the knee-jerk PC protestant denomination par excellence insofar as the hierarchy go. Most in the pews simply ignore their idiotic pronouncements the way I suppose most Catholics do those of the present pope.

  58. Janet Hall says:

    NWO here we come!!! In everything this man says, on a daily basis, he mirrors the man the Bible refers to in Revelation as the False Prophet ….. Lift up your head, because your redemption draweth nigh!

  59. Earl says:

    Weapons have been around since the beginning of time. The Pope must be trying to live in some other world.

    • Tom says:

      Yes in Hitlers world, He was one of many that helped Hitler, Doesn’t anyone think it’s funny he is from Argintina where all the SS ran to.

  60. Sandra Lee Smith says:

    Francis must’ve MISSED that command Jesus made to His disciples to buy swords, even if they had to sell their cloaks to do so, for defense! Had He been alive today, that command would undoubtedly been to buy guns, since swords were the top defensive weapon of His time on this Earth! Yes, He chastised Peter’s use of a sword against the High Priest’s servant, because of the TIMING; Peter was, at that moment, interfering in God’s plans for salvation. But He never instructed, or intended for, us to not defend ourselves from physical attacks. But the fact is, MAD was the single most effective method of keeping the “Cold War” from going hot through all those decades it existed. Warriors who want peace are always prepared for war. They know that to be the best deterrent to war.

  61. Greg Olmstead says:

    NO ! He’s the DEVIL. Tell him to shove it up his fake ass!
