Many Americans In Uproar Over This One Tweet By Pope Francis
This was first published at Patriot Pulse:
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.
Do we really want peace? Then let’s ban all weapons so we don’t have to live in fear of war.

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.
