Pope Francis has said there are limits to the freedom of expression – and that anyone who swears at his mother deserves a punch. Francis spoke about the Paris attacks while on his way to the Philippines, where around 1,500 Muslims protested yesterday against the depictions of the Prophet in the satirical French magazine Charlie Hebdo.We are probably hearing this because Francis KNOWS he is aligned with evil, yet is too prideful to make a clean break.
He said that freedom of speech and expression are fundamental human rights however he added that he believes there should be limits to offending and ridiculing the faiths and beliefs of others.
By way of example, he referred to Alberto Gasparri, who organises his trips and was standing by his side on board the papal plane.
“If my good friend Dr Gasparri says a curse word against my mother, he can expect a punch,” Francis said while pretending to throw a punch in his direction.
He added: “It’s normal. You cannot provoke. You cannot insult the faith of others. You cannot make fun of the faith of others.”

Others are focusing upon the Vatican sex scandals.
IMHO that is a distraction from the far larger geo-political scheme of world control of people and markets- hence this blog Continuing Counter Reformation has published very little upon sex scandals.
