Fox News host Brian Kilmeade had pathetic and degrading words for Pope Francis while talking with Fox colleague Chris Wallace. Kilmeade said that he thinks the Pope should just stay out of America if he is going to criticize the GOP’s obsession with capitalism and climate change denial.
Kilmeade: Yeah, I’m Catholic and he could stay home. Some of his comments just have no place. He’s in the wrong country. But I tell you what —
Wallace: What? He’s in the wrong country? What does that mean?
Kilmeade: He doesn’t like capitalism. He blames us and money for what’s going on in the Middle East. He says that global warming — we’ve got to do more to have global warming — we’re doing more than anybody else. Get on China, show some courage. He’s never visited our country before, now he gets around to it and he’s critical going in? I’ve had enough, you know — take on, take on Islam, then talk to me.
Kilmeade: Tired of the pope.
As always, Fox News is totally ignorant. Pope Francis has spoken out against terrorism and abuse of religion, including Islamic extremism. After the attacks on Charlie Hebdo in France, Pope Francis stated the following:
“Violence is always the product of a falsification of religion”.
“Religious fundamentalism, even before it eliminates human beings by perpetrating horrendous killings, eliminates God himself, turning him into a mere ideological pretext.”
“I express my hope that religious, political and intellectual leaders, especially those of the Muslim community, will condemn all fundamentalist and extremist interpretations of religion which attempt to justify such acts of violence.”
