VATICAN CITY (Reuters) -Pope Francis on Sunday rejected Russia’s use of the term “special military operation” for its invasion of Ukraine, saying the country was being battered by war and urging an immediate end to the fighting.

“In Ukraine, rivers of blood and tears are flowing. This is not just a military operation but a war which sows death, destruction and misery,” the pope said in his weekly address to crowds gathered in St. Peter’s Square.

The comments were the strongest the pope had yet made about the violence although, as has been the case throughout the conflict, he did not condemn Russia by name.

Pope Francico “Peron The First” is not taking any chances to anger his fellow Left Wingers leaders. Obviously the threat of going to Hell is of little effect for those Atheist Socialists (Including the current resident of the Vatican) but he supposed to be in religious guidance of approximately 1.2 billion Catholics and that is not cheap chicken feed. There is influence to be made with that many people, but the Peronista Pope chooses to go in a poetic rambling over the victims  rather than hellish fire and brimstone against the Cossack evil.

I am not the only one that thinks like that.

ROME — The head of the Polish bishops’ conference has publicly condemned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and urged the head of the Russian Orthodox Church to use his influence with Vladimir Putin to demand an end to the war and for Russian soldiers to stand down.

“The time will come to settle these crimes, including before the international courts,” Archbishop Stanislaw Gadecki warned in his March 2 letter to Patriarch Kirill. “However, even if someone manages to avoid this human justice, there is a tribunal that cannot be avoided.”

The Holy See has called for peace, humanitarian corridors, a cease-fire and a return to negotiations, and even offered itself as a mediator. But Francis has not publicly condemned Russia by name for its invasion or publicly appeal to Kirill.

Polish Catholics do have an impressive track record against both Nazis and Communists culminating in possible one of the best popes we ever had. And Archbishop Gadecki called Papa Peronista to the carpet for being a weak-ass shepherd in times of peril. I could not agree more.

One thought on “Socialist Pope has not condemned Tovarisch Putin”
  1. The head of the Russian Orthodox church is a Putin Puppet — to the point he’s said priests objecting to the invasion are in schism. The Ukrainian Orthodox traditionally defer to him, but aren’t showing much interest right now.

    The Pope has very, very little influence in the Orthodox world. THAT schism was closed years ago, but they still don’t recognize him as head of the church.
