He speaks for himself and not quoting Christ. But I have to chuckle about the part of his Christmas message, where he called on “Atheists to unite with believers and work for a homemade peace.”

Yes he needs atheists to get peace, because he knows how many wars, inquisitions and other campaigns in the name of Christianity, have been perpetrated on any other religions, other than pure Catholic dogma. How science has been inhibited and unregulated population growth has been encouraged and at the same time, imposing inhibitions on people for their harmless natural biological needs.

I find it so very interesting because in all of the different scriptures, Christ does not talk about peace but instead says: “I come not to bring peace, but to bring a sword”

So although the Pope is saying some really good things, in my opinion, it is not coming from the scriptures, but from his own heart. That part is so good.

I just wish he would also say that being a good person has nothing to do with religion. Now that would truly blow my mind.
