Pope Francis Calls for ‘World Without Nukes’
Controversy
13

In a written message to the United Nations, Pope Francis urged all national, international and civic organizations to work “with determination” to promote the necessary conditions for a world without nuclear weapons.

In his message released Wednesday to coincide with a meeting in New York of a UN conference to negotiate a legally binding instrument to prohibit nuclear weapons, Francis said that the international juridical framework is grounded on peace, the pacific solution of disputes and the development of friendly relations between nations.

“An ethics and a law based on the threat of mutual destruction – and possibly the destruction of all mankind – are contradictory to the very spirit of the United Nations,” the Pope stated. “We must therefore commit ourselves to a world without nuclear weapons, by fully implementing the Non-Proliferation Treaty, both in letter and spirit.”

While acknowledging the manifold threats to peace and security “in this multipolar world of the twenty-first century,” including “terrorism, asymmetrical conflicts, cybersecurity, environmental problems, poverty,” Francis suggested the inadequacy of nuclear deterrence “as an effective response to such challenges.”

Not only is nuclear deterrence insufficient, the pontiff continued, but the proliferation of nuclear weapons raises other concerns as well, such as “the catastrophic humanitarian and environmental consequences that would follow from any use of nuclear weapons, with devastating, indiscriminate and uncontainable effects, over time and space.”

  • This Pope is an idiot more appropriate to the time they were deciding to gled the choir boys, make the priests celibate and eat fish every Friday. The nuclear “Genie” is out of the bottle and name one technological principle, product or procedure that has ever been put back in the bottle? No one can…

    Google “Two Minute Conservative” for more.

    Leftist can never seem to see past Stage 1 in their thinking. Once how to make the bomb was discovered it matters not if all nuclear weapons are destroyed, more can be made. Rather like drinking all the wine – more can be procured.

    Hey Pope ..I think a World without Nukes is a Great Idea !!..And as soon as you talk North Korea, Iran, & 5-6 other sheetholes out of their Nuke programs…. come talk to America..

  • Denis C. Flaherty

    I have never in the past questioned the Pope. However, this guy has left the reservation….

  • Brabado

    Perhaps Pope Francis could use his time, more efficiently and effectively – like Pope John Paul II did – really defending Christians Prosecution around the World, condemning Radical Islam Crimes against the innocent, and promote our Faith in God, instead of getting his nose into something that does not concern him…

    Like many Christians, I’m very disappointed about his “ongoing hallow and aloft behavior”, since being elected Head of our Catholic Church!!!

    MAY GOD SHOW HIM THE RIGHT WAY, FOR ONCE.

    Semper fi.

      It is every Christians duty to speak the WORD that GOD gives us, BUT leave “self” behind, GIVE GOD THE GLORY!” Anything that any of us do, we best be careful to give GOD the credit due HIM and not try to grasp it for our own glory, and not for a moment think that GOD blesses us for being good, because none of us are good.” We are all sinners and if we say we have no sin, we lie and the truth is not in us!” HE blesses us every day because HE made us, HE loves us, but at times HE must be very disappointed in us, as we serve ourselves before/instead serving HIM!!!

    How about a world without Popes? That would be heavenly!

  • mcqueens2002

    This Pope should get back to the bible and start reading Revelations. God does not come back to take his people back using Nukes, Global Warming and other things that this Pope thinks is going to happen. I am starting to question if this pope is the one that is mentioned in Revelations for the end of time.

    • American Patriot

      Liked you post. They don’t read the bible. These popes are all phony. There is no mention of popes in the scriptures anywhere not in the Old or the New Testaments.

  • American Patriot

    I’d vote for a world without Popes.

  • gvhparkridge

    How about a world without sin….???? Isn’t that more in your line?
