The Pope is senile

"But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one."

Luke 22:36

Pope Francis attacks firearms manufacturers.

There's only one explanation if comments reportedly made by Pope Francis over the weekend are accurate—the Pope is senile.

Francis issued his toughest condemnation to date of the weapons industry at a rally of thousands of young people at the end of the first day of his trip to the Italian city of Turin.

"If you trust only men you have lost," he told the young people in a long, rambling talk about war, trust and politics after putting aside his prepared address.

"It makes me think of ... people, managers, businessmen who call themselves Christian and they manufacture weapons. That leads to a bit a distrust, doesn't it?" he said to applause.

He also criticized those who invest in weapons industries, saying "duplicity is the currency of today ... they say one thing and do another."

Needless to say, I disagree with the Pope's analysis of the state of the immortal souls of people who manufacture weapons. But the thing is, the Pope apparently does too, if comments farther down in the story are accurate.

He spoke of the "tragedy of the Shoah," using the Hebrew term for the Holocaust.

"The great powers had the pictures of the railway lines that brought the trains to the concentration camps like Auschwitz to kill Jews, Christians, homosexuals, everybody. Why didn't they bomb (the railway lines)?"

Bomb the railway lines with what exactly? Weapons manufactured by heathens?

Don't even get me started on the pontiff's own armed guards.

Today, the soldiers have access to an assortment of compact automatic weapons guns like the HK MP-5 and Steyr TMP, as well as SIG assault rifles and Glock pistols.



BREAKING: We just filed a motion asking the Ninth Circuit to lift the stay in our lawsuit challenging California's ban on so-called "assault weapons," which, if granted, would allow the judgment striking down the ban to go into effect. Read it here:

Stole the image from a reddit post, but it appears to be an accurate summary.

The losers in Sacramento are throwing a temper tantrum in response to the ruling in Bruen. Now that they have to issue carry permits, they want to make basically everywhere a "sensitive place".
