Pope Francis Does Not Get The Sixth Commandment

by JASmius



Again the Red Pope profanes God's Holy Word by using it as a jock strap for his Marxist-Alinskyist propaganda:

Pope Francis on Sunday called for the worldwide abolition of the death penalty, saying the commandment "You shall not kill" was absolute and equally valid for the guilty as for the innocent.

Using some of his strongest words ever against capital punishment, he also called on Catholic politicians worldwide to make "a courageous and exemplary gesture" by seeking a moratorium on executions during the Church's current Holy Year, which ends in November.

"I appeal to the consciences of those who govern to reach an international consensus to abolish the death penalty," he told tens of thousands of people in St. Peter's Square.

"The commandment "You shall not kill," has absolute value and applies to both the innocent and the guilty," he told the crowd. [emphases added]

Now let us consult a source about which Francis appears to know nothing: the Book of Exodus:

"You shall set bounds for the people all around, saying, ‘Beware that you do not go up on the mountain or touch the border of it; whoever touches the mountain shall surely be put to death." (19:12)

"He who strikes a man so that he dies shall surely be put to death." (21:12)

"He who strikes his father or his mother shall surely be put to death." (21:15)

"He who kidnaps a man, whether he sells him or he is found in his possession, shall surely be put to death." (21:16)

"He who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death." (21:17)

"If, however, an ox was previously in the habit of goring and its owner has been warned, yet he does not confine it and it kills a man or a woman, the ox shall be stoned and its owner also shall be put to death." (21:29)

"Whoever lies with an animal shall surely be put to death." (22:19)

"Therefore you are to observe the sabbath, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death...." (31:14)

"For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day there is a sabbath of complete rest, holy to the LORD; whoever does any work on the sabbath day shall surely be put to death." (31:15)

"For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day you shall have a holy day, a sabbath of complete rest to the LORD; whoever does any work on it shall be put to death. (35:2)

And then there's the Book of Leviticus:

"You shall also say to the sons of Israel: ‘Any man from the sons of Israel or from the aliens sojourning in Israel who gives any of his offspring to Molech, shall surely be put to death; the people of the land shall stone him with stones. '"(20:2)

"If there is anyone who curses his father or his mother, he shall surely be put to death; he has cursed his father or his mother, his bloodguiltiness is upon him." (20:4)

"If there is a man who commits adultery with another man’s wife, one who commits adultery with his friend’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death." (20:9)

"If there is a man who lies with his father’s wife, he has uncovered his father’s nakedness; both of them shall surely be put to death, their bloodguiltiness is upon them." (20:10)

"If there is a man who lies with his daughter-in-law, both of them shall surely be put to death; they have committed incest, their bloodguiltiness is upon them." (20:11)

"If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them." (20:12)

"If there is a man who lies with an animal, he shall surely be put to death; you shall also kill the animal." (20:13)

"If there is a woman who approaches any animal to mate with it, you shall kill the woman and the animal; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them." (20:15)

"Now a man or a woman who is a medium or a spiritist shall surely be put to death. They shall be stoned with stones, their bloodguiltiness is upon them." (20:16)

"Moreover, the one who blasphemes the name of the LORD shall surely be put to death; all the congregation shall certainly stone him. The alien as well as the native, when he blasphemes the Name, shall be put to death." (20:27)

"If a man takes the life of any human being, he shall surely be put to death." (24:16)

"Thus the one who kills an animal shall make it good, but the one who kills a man shall be put to death." (24:17)

"No one who may have been set apart among men shall be ransomed; he shall surely be put to death." (24:21)

Let's not leave out the Book of Numbers....:

"So when the tabernacle is to set out, the Levites shall take it down; and when the tabernacle encamps, the Levites shall set it up. But the layman who comes near shall be put to death." (1:51)

"So you shall appoint Aaron and his sons that they may keep their priesthood, but the layman who comes near shall be put to death.” (3:10)

Or, from the New Testament, Romans 13:4:

"[F]or it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil." [emphases added]

His Unholiness is entitled to his opinion on the death penalty issue.  But it's beyond abundantly clear that capital punishment is very and entirely biblical.  Just as Pope Francis is equally not.

You might even call it the real life Avengers Initiative.....
