Pope Francis wants to punch those mocking Faith in the Face

Christof Lehmann (nsnbc) : Fueled by the debate on freedom of speech prompted by the Charlie Hebdo affair, Pope Francis noted that those who mock faith should be punched in the face. Apparently, the “Vicar of Christ” who has a history of collusion with the Argentinian military junta is falling back to dealing blows against freedom of speech and expression without critical reasoning about who it is that benefits from the highly dubious attack on the Charlie Hebdo magazine in the French capital Paris.

popefrancisFollowing the attack on the headquarters of the French satirical cartoon magazine Charlie Hebdo and the killing of 12 of its staff, including the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Pope Francis, the pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church, said that “those who mock faith should be punched in the face”.

This statement has numerous implications.

Religious misunderstandings. Fulfilling the office of the vicar of Christ, some commented, that Francis’ statement wasn’t exactly consistent with the Christian faith.

Others again would note that Jesus drove the money changers out of the temple – gloves off – but freedom of expression isn’t exactly comparable to the business of usurpation by the money changers, back then as well as today.

Arguably, there is a reasonable difference between throwing money changers out of a temple and punching those who mock a religion in the face, no matter how idiotic or premeditated and provocative the mockery is. Besides that, most religions are based on the principle of tolerance. That is, with the exception of radical fundamentalists sects.

From Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio and Argentina’s Dirty War to Pope Francis wanting to throw punches. From Dr. Jekyll to Mr. Hyde? 

Those acquainted with the fable about “The Emperor’s New Clothes” would probably agree that changing from the robes of a cardinal to the robes of a pope doesn’t necessarily imply a sea change in ethics, even it it’s in “The Holy Sea”.

In his article entitled ““Washington’s Pope”? Who is Pope Francis I? Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio and Argentina’s “Dirty War”“, the Director of the Centre for Research on Globalisation, Professor Michel Chossudovsky, documented Bergoglio’s involvement with the Argentinian military junta, Henry Kissinger and the CIA and others during the 70s and 80s.

Argentina’s “dirty war” resulted in the arrest, torture and systematic murder of tens of thousands who dared to make use of their freedom of speech and expression. This includes the so-called “Operation Condor”, the CIA’s extraordinary rendition and assassination program at that time.

The Charlie Hebdo Affair appears to have caused Dr. Jekyll to pop up through the mask of his holiness Mr. Hyde, who took the papal name after Saint Francis who is widely considered as one of the most ascetic and ethical among Christian  Saints.

So,… Pope Hyde wants to throw punches and deal blows to those who are mocking faith? Arguably, that puts Pope Francis into one and the same category as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, a.k.a. Al-Badri or most recently Caliph Ibrahim of the Islamic State (ISIS / ISIL ). The common denominator, violence against “dissidents designated as blasphemers”.

Those who are acquainted with the Bergoglio behind the Francis wouldn’t be surprised about that fact. It is as if it closes a full circle.

During the 70s and 80s Bergoglio blessed members of murderous Argentinian and US regimes. In 2015, Francis argues for a policy that is about as tolerant of free speech as that of ISIS.

Note that US Senator McCain held a secret meeting with the self-proclaimed “Caliph” who lobbies for slavery, sales of women and the beheading of blasphemers. (see image to the left)

Idiotic Provocations as Pretext for an Inquisition against Freedom of Speech? 

Charlie Hebdo has not been the first and won’t be the last publication to provoke the religious sentiment of millions. There were the Danish Mohamed Cartoons, there was a movie which resulted in worldwide indignation among Muslims and violence that cost dozens of lives, the 2012 anti-Islam movie.

The movie prompted radical demands for the hanging of Nacoula Besseley, the 55-year-old producer of the movie and demands for laws against blasphemy on one hand, and almost equally radical statements against any limitations to the freedom of speech and expression on the other. Worst of all, it resulted in demands for limitations to the freedom of speech and both ISIS and the Catholic Church’s “Holy Inquisition” exemplify what people have been manipulated into demanding – voluntarily.

Most of these and similar incidents have the common denominator that they happen as the political discourse is dealing with possible military interventions against predominantly Muslim countries, military interventions against “terrorists” who are being covertly funded by those same nations who are seeking a military intervention against them and so forth.

Francis has now been dressed in the fur of a sheep for about three years, but the wolves fangs have become visible when he opened his mouth and argued that those who mock faith ought to be punched in the face. But it is not merely the fact that Francis was growling like a wolf. What arguably is much worse is that Francis omitted facts about the dubious nature of the entire Charlie Hebdo affair. That is the true giveway of the wolf in sheep’s clothing. One could say that Francis pulled off his sheep clothing and pulled the wool over the eyes of those who are listening to him.

A Final Word about Religions Ethics and Lies. Both the Christian and the Muslim faith have their roots in the Mosaic faith. One of the ten commandments states that “Though shallst not give false testimony””. It is particularly the legal aspect of that commandment that is noteworthy within the context of Francis’ “omissions”.

Anyone who was giving false testimony in an ancient Jewish court would be sentenced to receive the same punishment that the person against whom he had given false testimony would have received, had the perjury not been discovered.

Considering the obvious inconsistencies in the official Charlie Hebdo affair narrative and Francis omissions, the very least punishment Bergoglio Francis, arguably, deserves would be a punch in his face – for his omission of the inconsistencies. That is, unless Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi issues a fatwa that pardons him.

After that, one might consider what to do about his two decades of collusion with Argentina’s Fascist Junta. Arguably, that would be a much more constructive approach to crazed cartoonists than putting Europe, the USA, Canada, and others on a trajectory that invariably leads to the systematic mass murder of those who speak out; Like the mass murders which were committed during Argentina’s dirty war, by ISIS today, or by the “Holy Inquisition”.

    Supposedly Christ’s representative on earth or perhaps even God’s representative, I forget, it has been a few years since my “Dominus Vobiscums”. I thought a Christian was supposed to turn the other cheek but this false pope wants to punch people? Life must be good for Frank. Between paedophilia and financial scandals, now the church wants to promote boxing. The true church is the Orthodox Church in Damascus and Constantinople and that is what Frank wants to rid himself of. What a winner for you Catholics out there. An intellectual.Finally, someone to be proud of.

    • The tuning the other cheek as you describe it is based on a false interpretation of the historical context. It was probably introduced to keep people passive and obedient. In the time of the Roman occupation of Jerusalem a Roman would only slap the face of a subject or slave with the back of his/her hand (not to get dirty).. Turning the other cheek was a statement that translates into “If you want to slap me, do it as one among equals if you dare, because I do not accept you as my master and will answer as a man”.

  2. Edward says:

    I unfortunately forgot to thank Mr. Lehmann for this fine article. I appreciate this site and what they post.

    • nsnbc says:

      Thank you for reading nsnbc Edward. And Steven, you are right about turning the other cheek. It was a call to rebel against slavery and oppression by the occupier. Edward – the church introducing boxing mad me laugh, thank you. :) – Christof.

  3. Pope Francis said about those who mock Faith – with capital F – ”they should be punched in the face” …. I completely agree with that… If you mock my Faith that is dear to me and you know that it is dear to me.. you should expect I punch you in the face or kick you in the groin and throw you down if I am Black Belt. There is an Echo if you call out in the woods… a boomerang always return, there is nemesis… so if I can not punch you directly, indirectly you will get it back somehow. It is the law of nature… it has been known and said for many thousands of years. That does not make the murderous lung eating ISIS right… you can not force Faith on someone… by gun, sword, or any other means of force.

    • Bente, thank goodness we have people like Christof Lehmann who would probably risk his life for you to have the right to have and express that opinion, regardless how little he probably agrees with you.

      • Steven, please read this again – There is an Echo if you call out in the woods… a boomerang always return, there is nemesis… so if I can not punch you directly, indirectly you will get it back somehow. It is the law of nature… it has been known and said for many thousands of years. That does not make the murderous lung eating ISIS right… you can not force Faith on someone… by gun, sword, or any other means of force.

    The whole aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo false flag was designed to attack free speech by making people beg for censorship. And people are stupid enough to fall for it. Like they beg for security in exchange for freedom. Laughable idiots. Can’t even say brainwashed for obvious lack of brain. Thank you Christof Lehmann, thank you nsnbc for standing up for freedom of speech and freedom of media before it is too late. If there is a God, I hope he will bless you, you deserve it.

  5. Parzival says:

    More like the ‘Holy Act,’ rather than the ‘Holy See.’

    • Debbie says:

      ROFL You mean Francis Hyde was caught in the act? Pants down? Great comment to a great article. I love laughing. We can’t allow ourselves become depressed because of the charade the elite plays and I promise you, soon it is us who will ACT and be laughing straight into their faces.

  6. Marcel Bruno says:

    After all the Pope is also a human being! Don’t forget that!Faith is like a child beleiving in fairy tales. If it makes you more comfortable, beleive in legends, so be it.

  7. roth says:

    Yes, violence and religion work well these days. Christianity does not believe in turn the other cheek, they never did.
