Fox’s Greg Gutfeld Lashes Out At The Pope For “Lecturing On Guns” After Orlando

Gutfeld: “If The Vatican Were As Unarmed As Pulse … The Pope Would Not Be Alive”

GREG GUTFELD (CO-HOST): "....Now the Pope is lashing out at guns, not Islamism. He says guns circulate too freely. Doesn't he know that ISIS hits soft targets, not hard ones like the Vatican? Its all based on hard versus soft. If the Vatican were as unarmed as Pulse, the club, the pope would not be alive. But ISIS knows that the Pope is surrounded by a military force consisting of 100 plus ex-Swiss soldiers who carry muskets but also sub-machine guns, with heavily armed agents nearby. If that club, Pulse, had three percent of the Pope’s arms, he wouldn't lecturing on guns. The Pope complained that aid and food in few support countries are often blocked, but guns are not. Doesn't he see that if it weren't for armed men from our country, most aid would get nowhere. He says he is pro-life, not here I’m afraid. "

Pope Francis: Gun-makers are hypocrites if they call themselves Christians

MAX ROSSI/REUTERS Pope Francis criticized weapons manufacturers who call themselves Christians on Sunday. “They say one thing and do another,” he said. TURIN, Italy — People who manufacture weapons or invest in weapons industries are hypocrites if they call themselves Christian, Pope Francis said on Sunday.
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 sa…

Gun control: Church firmly, quietly opposes firearms for civilians

VATICAN CITY -- The Catholic Church's position on gun control is not easy to find; there are dozens of speeches and talks and a few documents that call for much tighter regulation of the global arms trade, but what about private gun ownership?

The answer is resoundingly clear: Firearms in the hands of civilians should be strictly limited and eventually completely eliminated.

"The answer is resoundingly clear: Firearms in the hands of civilians should be strictly limited and eventually completely eliminated."

But you won't find that statement in a headline or a document subheading. It's almost hidden in a footnote in a document on crime by the U.S. bishops' conference and it's mentioned in passing in dozens of official Vatican texts on the global arms trade.

The most direct statement comes in the bishops' "Responsibility, Rehabilitation and Restoration: A Catholic Perspective on Crime and Criminal Justice" from November 2000.

Catholic Church calls for knife control

Catholic Church calls for knife controlClergy members want the British Parliament to ban pointed kitchen knives. Author: Dale Greenstein October 7, 2019

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Gun-control.

It’s a topic that triggers countless political showdowns -- and high-powered, dinner table debates -- here in the United States, but in the United Kingdom, a sharp conversation over knife-control is cutting through the country.

Yes, you read that right -- knife-control.

Here’s why:

In Great Britain, like in most of the developed world, gun violence simply is not a very big problem, but knife crimes are on the rise. According to an Oct. 3 report from the British Parliament, in 2017 and 2018, 285 people were killed with knives and other "sharp instruments". That was 34 percent more than the two years prior.

Overview of the increase in knife homicide rates in the United Kingdom.
Now, British lawmakers are facing pressure to act, and the push is coming from a somewhat unlikely source -- the Roman …
