"We need to dismantle the perverse logic that links personal and national security to the possession of weaponry. This logic serves only to increase the profits of the arms industry, while fostering a climate of distrust and fear between persons and peoples.”- Pope Francis
The Pontiff’s anti-gun remarks fall in line with the United Nations’ agenda to eradicate personal firearm ownership throughout the globe, a goal symbolized by a “Knotted Gun” statue that sits in front of the UN’s New York City headquarters. I for one believe in another concept:
“THAT ALL MEN ARE, BY THE VERY NATURE OF BEING ALIVE, FREE, AND EQUAL, HAVE CERTAIN INHERENT AND INALIENABLE RIGHTS AMONG CHIEF IS THE RIGHT TO DEFEND THEIR LIVES, THOSE OF THEIR FAMILIES, AND TO PROTECT THEIR PROPERTY.”
The Pope, like every other hypocrite celebrity and politician, has his own private army, the Guardia Svizzera Pontificia, or Swiss Guard, who are former Swiss military. They are highly trained and equipped, and maintained by the Holy See to protects the Pope and the Apostolic Palace, serving as the de facto military of Vatican City. The little people, you and I, don’t have nor, can afford the luxury of private security to protect us. Instead, we must rely on ourselves to do so in an increasingly violent world where criminals commit acts of violence and destruction with impunity, and people like the Pope, Biden, Harris, O’Donnell and countless other dilettantes, want to render us incapable of defending ourselves. To the Pope I say go pound sand. Oh, and you can excommunicate me.
