Pope Francis Denounces Euthanasia

(Vatican City)
Pope Francis denounced the right to die movement on Saturday, saying that euthanasia is a sin against God and creation.

The Latin American pontiff said it was a “false sense of compassion” to consider euthanasia as an act of dignity.[…]

The Catholic Church opposes euthanasia and assisted suicide, teaching that life starts at the moment of conception and should end at the moment of natural death.

The Pope also condemned in vitro fertilization, describing it as “the scientific production of a child” and embryonic stem cell research, which he said amounted to “using human beings as laboratory experiments to presumably save others.”

“This is playing with life,” he said. “Beware, because this is a sin against the creator, against God the creator.”

How, then, can he support redistribution? Socialism and communism require murder in order to operate. He can't be for those types of governments and against euthanasia. Or does he consider genocide, being from the government, acceptable? Either he is deluded, a liar, or worse.

Hell, he doesn't even seem to support the traditional meaning of marriage and family. Not to be trusted. Blow kumbaya kisses at him all day. I will not. Then again, if you are atheist, I guess he would fit. If you are weakly Christian, there is that. If you simply are too tied with sin to want to fight, that I used to understand.
