Mirror -- Pope Francis today criticized the naming of the US military’s biggest non-nuclear explosive as “the Mother of All Bombs”, saying the word “mother” should not be used in reference to a deadly weapon.
The US Air Force dropped a bomb officially designated as the GBU-43 Massive Ordnance Air Blast on suspected Islamic State fighters in eastern Afghanistan last month.
The nickname was widely used in briefings and reporting on the attack.
“I was ashamed when I heard the name,” Pope Francis told an audience of students today.
“A mother gives life and this one gives death, and we call this device a mother. What is happening?”
Blog Author's Comments: Amazing, so much for the idea that the Pope is objectively non-political and the ease with which he has been uttering the liberal lines indicates to me that he has a long history of practicing his delivery. When the pope was chosen by the Cardinals in 2013, I thought this pope was authentic and credible. But the more I read and hear about him the kindest thing I can say is that he is a liberal and a Socialist.
He needs to forget about politics and delivering his leftist political views and stick to religion. At first, when I read about some of the things he had to say I had high hopes for this pope, but when the mainstream media began to sing his praises, it was truly a warning and I began to pay attention. Pope Francis has a lot to be "ashamed" of concerning world affairs or the state of the world in general, but the MOAB bomb is not one of them.
Does the pope have any great concerns that - ISIS burns people alive, enslaves girls, crucifies people, gouges eyes out, cuts hands and feet off, cut off heads, drowns people in cages and shoots civilians just to name a few of their horrific actions? But the pope gets triggered by the word "mother." Again, we do not care what the pope thinks about the name of a bomb, that should be the last thing on his mind to deal with, comment on, or care about.
