Vatican condemns terrorist attack in Nice

[Hat-tip to Canon212: “FrancisVatican says Bastille Day should have been a great holiday”]

Catholic World News – July 15, 2016

The Vatican has condemned the terrorist attack in Nice, France, that left 84 dead.

“We have followed during the night, with the greatest concern, the terrible news which has come from Nice,” said Father Federico Lombardi, director of the Holy See Press Office.

“We want to make known, on the part of Pope Francis and ourselves, our sharing and solidarity in the suffering of the victims and all the French people, in what was supposed to be a great day of celebration,” Father Lombardi continued, in a reference to Bastille Day. “We condemn in an absolute manner every manifestation of homicidal folly, hatred, terrorism, and attacks against peace.”

  1. Media Cover For Muslim Madman

    [Bulldog Bill forgot to include the Vatican byline: “During a Bastille Day fireworks celebration, a terrorist of Franco-Tunisian descent drove a truck into the crowds that had been watching”]

    Catholic League – July 15, 2016

    Bill Donohue comments on media coverage of the man who plowed a truck into a crowd in Nice, France:

    Here is a sample of some of the most common statements and headlines issued by the media on Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, the truck driver who killed at least 84 people in Nice, France:

    “A Frenchman of Tunisian descent drove a truck through crowds….”
    “French Tunisian Truck Terrorist Identified”
    “Truck Attack in France Kills at Least 80”
    “Attack in Nice: Driver of Truck Identified as 31-Year-Old French-Tunisian”

    Rare is the story that identifies him as a Muslim. A Lexis-Nexis search found 162 articles on the massacre, and in 108 of them they cited his Tunisian descent. Even though many witnesses said they heard him shout “Allahu Akbar,” only 19 stories mentioned it.

    If an Irish-Catholic madman were to mow down scores of people, yelling “Jesus, Mary, and Joseph,” every media outlet would identify him as a Catholic terrorist.

    It’s not just the Obama administration that refuses to discuss the religious identity of Muslim madmen, the media are just as bad.

  2. The media here in Australia, with a few exceptions, are also totally deceptive about all the terrorsit attacks. They don’t come out and say the word, “Muslim.”
    Lat night on one of our news channels, two female presrenters actually discussed the attack with their whole focus being how we musn’t alienate the moderate people (they didn’t use the term Muslim of course)!!!! They were saying how well multi culturalism has worked in Australia (it hasn’t!) and how we must not make any group (no mention of Muslims) feel unwelcome or they might be pushed into extremist views!!!!!

    What does it take to wake these morons up?

    • I think, fidei, it takes waking up in an ER or not waking up in a morgue for all too many of ’em.

      Over here in the Untied Shakes, it all began in 1965 when the infamous Ted Kennedy led the Senate in allowing the inflow of anything on two legs to “immigrate.”

      The Democrat Party knew it would gain an enormous voter base by putting people even North Korea would refuse onto the government dole, making ’em lifelong, welfare addicts, i.e., Democrats.

      • gpmtrad,
        Sorry to digress, but didn’t you once quote a Pope to the effect: If the Pope speaks heresy, then ignore him. Was it Pope Pius IX? Do you have citation?
        Thank you!

        • Citation: Canon Gregory Hesse, STD, STL. He spoke of it regarding a letter from a bishop asking what to do if a pope were ever to speak heresy or error. I can’t tell you which of his YouTube conferences it was on. Thankfully, there are many but it takes just listening to them to convince any rational soul of the truth of his firm, solid analysis.

          May he rest in peace.

  3. “We want to make known, on the part of Pope Francis and ourselves, our sharing and solidarity in the suffering of the victims and all the French people, in what was supposed to be a great day of celebration,” Father Lombardi continued, in a reference to Bastille Day.”

    Yes, the pope and the Vatican should condemn this terrorist attack, while also condemning the false religion and the false god that these Muslim terrorists kill in the name of.
    Of course that will never happen.



  4. Fr. Lombardi? Hello. What’s the problem? Oh yes, the unfortunate news. You need to issue a statement? Not too strong? Oh, you want it to be strong. Caring, too. Inclusive? Well, OK. You need to start out with words like great concern, terrible, solidarity, suffering. Can you say condemn? Yes, that will be good. But what about the Muslim part? Francis says no way. OK. Anything else?
