Pope Francis Sees Resurgence of Homophobic Political Rhetoric as Akin to Nazi Era


In a speech Friday to an international penal law association, Pope Francis compared a resurgent homophobic and racist political rhetoric to that of Hitler and the Nazi era. The Pope did not name specific politicians.

Said Francis: “It is not coincidental that at times there is a resurgence of symbols typical of Nazism. And I must confess to you that when I hear a speech (by) someone responsible for order or for a government, I think of speeches by Hitler in 1934, 1936.”


The question for discussion: Is the pope right? Has he waded into Godwin’s Law? Both?
