Pope Francis spoke on Sunday, right after the anti-gun march and talked about how we need to give young people voices more. In the past the Pope has insulted Christians who are gun manufacturers.
“It makes me think of … people, managers, businessmen who call themselves Christian and they manufacture weapons. That leads to a bit of distrust, doesn’t it?” the pope once said.
“The temptation to silence young people has always existed. There are many ways to silence young people and make them invisible. Many ways to anesthetize them, to make them keep quiet, ask nothing, question nothing. There are many ways to sedate them, to keep them from getting involved, to make their dreams flat and dreary, petty and plaintive,” said the pope.
“Dear young people, you have it in you to shout… It is up to you not to keep quiet. Even if others keep quiet, if we older people and leaders, some corrupt, keep quiet, if the whole world keeps quiet and loses its joy, I ask you: Will you cry out?” said the Pope.
He continued by discussing how religious institution put a ‘spin’ on Jesus. “‘Spinning’ facts and painting them such that they disfigure the face of Jesus and turn him into a ‘criminal.’ It is the voice of those who want to defend their own position, especially by discrediting the defenseless. It is the cry born of the show of self-sufficiency, pride and arrogance, which sees no problem in shouting: ‘Crucify him, crucify him,’” said Pope Francis.
