The new pope is really making enemies on all sides… going against the top rich and economic inequality, the Vatican Bank, and now the mobsters in the south of Italy on moral and religious grounds..
At some points there will be some repercussions from of all this.. or maybe the times are changing.. but he’s moving a bit too fast.. doing all at once..
Pope Francis has condemned the mafia’s “adoration of evil” at a mass in Calabria, the southern Italian base of the ‘Ndrangheta crime syndicate.
The Pope said the gangsters were effectively “excommunicated” – or banished – in the eyes of the Church.
Earlier, the Pope visited the jailed father of a three-year-old boy who had been killed in an apparent mob hit over an unpaid drug debt.
The Pope has repeatedly spoken out against organized crime and corruption.
