Pope Francis recently caught everyone’s attention when he said he would not call Communist China undemocratic.
You know the country that is being run by a communist tyrant, Xi Jinping, who nominated himself as dictator for life, and who likes throwing Christians in jail and uses other ethnic groups as slaves.
Yeah, that one.
ROME — Pope Francis has rejected the label “undemocratic” to describe China’s communist regime, insisting that the issue is too complex to allow for such characterizations.
“I cannot get on board with calling China undemocratic; I won’t do that because it’s such a complex country,” the pontiff told journalists during his return trip from Kazakhstan to Rome Thursday. “Sure, there are things that seem undemocratic to us, that is true.”
“Labeling is difficult and I’m not ready to do that, since they are impressions, so instead I try to support the path of dialogue,” he declared.
