Pope Criticizes People Who Complain About Pandemic Restrictions
Bloomberg reports that Papal stand-in, Jorge Bergoglio called for “patience and solidarity” so long as you agree with him. He went on to criticize “those who complain about restrictive measures during the coronavirus pandemic.”
It only took seven years, but he’s finally paying attention to me.
While he noted that “[W]e have an increase in numbers of those who mercilessly profited from the misfortune of others, those who think only about themselves,” indicating that he might be calling out Bill Gates, Tony Fauci, and Jeff Bezos, all of whom have profited wildly from the ColdvidFlu hype, but then added “who [also] protested or complained about certain restrictive measures, unable to accept that not everyone has the same abilities and resources to face the pandemic” which, of course, none of the three of them did.
Seems like the last time a leader called for “change we can believe in”, it wasn’t such a good thing.
“We need change. The pandemic brought our organizational and developmental models into a crisis; it exposed many injustices, the troubling silence and social and health failures, subjecting a great number of our brothers to the processes of social exclusion and degradation,” the pope said.
