Jan 15, 2015- I’ll Punch My Aide If He Insults My Mother “- Pope Francis Warns Against Religious Mockery

Pope Francis warned that he was ready to “punch” anyone who insulted his mother.

The pontiff said this on Thursday in remarks made en route to the Philippines from Sri Lanka, that“ there are limits to freedom of expression and my mother was the limit.

“We have a duty to speak openly, to have this freedom, but without offending others.

“It’s true that you cannot react with violence, but if my aide Doctor Gasbarri, who is a friend, badmouths my mother, a punch would be coming for him,” he added.

The Pope said in relation to recent events in Paris that violence in the name of religion can never be justified, but that there are “limits” to freedom of expression.

“Many people badmouth religion, mock it, play with other people’s religion.

“It can happen, but there are limits, every religion has dignity, every religion that respects life and human beings has a dignity, and you cannot mock it,” he added.

Pope warned that “You cannot provoke, insult, ridicule other people’s faith,”.

    Hopeless people with intellectual emptiness do dwell and encapsulate themselves with actions that are bereft of common sense. Demystification of other people’s religion is a desecration of that religion. Freedom of speech in social science is pertaining to every member in a given society to take part amicably without infringing on other’s rights. But deviating from inherent moral demarcation is nothing, but animalistic. Western societies are intimately governed by demon called hypocrisy, if you insult Christians and Muslims it is called freedom of speech, but if you do that to the Jews is it hate speech. Atheists fools must stay away from religion.

    Mr pope where is this teaching in the bible? what of the forgiveness that Jesus Christ teaches? you are coming out to show which camp you belong to,if muslims want to live without democracy, they should go back to Saudi Arabia to practice their religion, because in Saudi Arabia there are no churches and the world is not fighting Saudi government about the decision to bann churches.
    so, mr pope forget about this your political correctness. I do not believe in Allah whom I believed to be devil like those that worship him.

    THE POPE HAS NO IDEAL WHAT HE’S TALKING ABOUT. THERE SHOULD BE NO LIMITATIONS TO FREEDOM OF SPEECH….THE ONLY EXCEPTION IS WHEN LIFE OR BODILY HARM IS THREATENING…
    I SHOULD BE ABLE TO SAY F YOUR RELIGION IF I SO CHOOSE TO… I VOMIT ON ALL RELIGION ANYWAY…ESPECIALLY ISLAM AND CHRISTIANITY….
    DEAL WITH IT!!!!
