Pope: The World Has Chosen War and Hate

This post originally appeared on RingofFireRadio.com.

Pope Francis has spoken harsh criticism of the upcoming Christmas celebration. Last week, the pope claimed that the holiday is little more than a charade because the world has chosen to pursue a path of war and hatred instead of peace.

“Christmas is approaching: there will be lights, parties, Christmas trees and nativity scenes … it’s all a charade,” said Pope Francis. “The world continues to go to war. The world has not chosen a peaceful path.”

“There are wars today everywhere, and hate,” he said. “We should ask for the grace to weep for this world, which does not recognize the path of peace. To weep for those who live for war and have the cynicism to deny it. God weeps, Jesus weeps.”

“What shall remain?” he asked. “Ruins, thousands of children without education, so many innocent victims, and lots of money in the pockets of arms dealers. Jesus once said: ‘You cannot serve two masters, either God or riches.'”

“The men who work war, who make war, are cursed – they are criminals,” said Pope Francis.
