Pope Francis is against insults. No, really. Stop laughing! :
Social media fosters a “culture of insults,” Pope Francis has told Sunday Pentecost churchgoers in Rome. In Berlin, Protestant bishop Markus Droge warned against propagators of lies intent on “undermining” democracy.
In his homily in front of tens of thousands in St. Peter’s Square, Pope Francis lamented that “the more we use social media, the less social we are becoming.”
“Nowadays it is fashionable to hurl adjectives and, sadly, even insults,” said the Roman Catholic pontiff, pleading instead that people respond to “malice with goodness.”
Sometimes the jokes just write themselves.
