Pope Francis Says America Has ‘a Distorted Vision of the World'
(CNSNews.com) - Pope Francis told the Italian newspaper La Repubblica on Thursday that the United States of America--and Russia, China, North Korea and Bashar al Assad's Syria--have "a distorted vision of the world"--("una visione distorta del mondo," as reportetd in Italian by La Repubblica).

The pope made the observation in an interview with La Repubblica reporter Eugenio Scalfari.

"Last Thursday, I got a call from Pope Francis," Scalfari reported. "It was about noon, and I was at the newspaper when my phone rang."

He said the pope wanted to see him at four that afternoon, according to a Google translation of the Italian report.

"Pope Francis told me to be very concerned about the meeting of the G20," Scalfari wrote.

"I am afraid there are very dangerous alliances between powers who have a distorted view of the world: America and Russia, China and North Korea, Russia and Assad in the war in Syria," the pope said.

#5 They've been saying something like that since 1776. "They" being those who consider themselves to be our betters to adjudge us (and whom we've had to bail out too many times in this world).

#8 "a distorted vision of the world"
This from a catholic priest who lives in a palace surrounded by priceless works of art, and mercenary bodyguards watching the exits. Interesting point of perspective there.

#10 This is the Jesuit liberation theologist that the anti-Americans in Rome crammed into the office. The membership and money are starting to decline in the US. Keep on licking the penises.

#11 This from a man whose top aide was caught conducting a massive gay orgy ON VATICAN GROUNDS!

Before he judges others, he should put his own house in order.

#16 This is the same dipshit who said non-gluten bread may not be used for communion.

Really? Because the Vatican doesn't sell it?
