Pope Francis wants social media companies to stop sharing “fake news,” pleading for such censorship of purportedly open forums “in the name of God.”
The 84-year-old leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Roman Catholics made his comments in a video address to the Vatican-sponsored “Fourth World Meeting of Popular Movements,” whose members he called “social poets.” Francis spoke in Spanish with English subtitles appearing onscreen.
“In the name of God, I ask the technology giants to stop exploiting human weakness, people’s vulnerability, for the sake of profits without caring about the spread of hate speech, grooming, fake news, conspiracy theories, and political manipulation,” the pontiff said.
He also set his sights on general media outlets, declaring, “In the name of God, I ask the media to stop the logic of post-truth, disinformation, defamation, slander and the unhealthy attraction to dirt and scandal, and to contribute to human fraternity and empathy with those who are most deeply damaged.”
Dear friends this is not the first time the Pope is addressing these issues.
When you hear the Pope speaking about “fake news” know that there’s danger ahead. He is rather targeting those few true Protestants out there.
He wants to stop those who are speaking anti-Catholic messages. The exposure of pedophile scandals and other sins of Babylon being laid open is a huge threat to the Pope’s agenda.
Don’t be surprised that very soon all posts on Facebook and Twitter mentioning Pope and Catholic Church will have fact checkers just like the Covid-19 posts.
And soon no one can call the Pope the Antichrist. The man of sin is doing everything to prevent God’s last call to call His people out of Babylon.
But praise God even if God’s people are prevented from preaching on Facebook and Twitter, God will have His own appointed ways to finish His work. The Devil will roar in vain. Christ is King!
At the end the truth will triumph Gloriously!!!
God will win the great controversy.
Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Revelation 13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
Revelation 14:8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
Revelation 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 18:5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
