JPFO Alert: Will Pope Francis Disarm His Guards?

Today's JPFO Alert Today's JPFO Alert wonders if Pope Francis thinks what's good for the goose is good for the gander.

His criticism of those who invest in weapons manufacture is especially puzzling. Anyone, after all, who purchases a weapon could fairly be said to have invested in the manufacture of them. And as it turns out, the Pontifical Swiss Guard, who defend the Vatican and its most famous resident, are lavishly equipped with some pretty hefty investments in Sig-Sauer, Heckler & Koch, Steyr Mannlicher, and Glock semi-automatic handguns, personal defense weapons, assault rifles, and submachine guns, not to mention whoever manufactures the swords, halberds, and other more traditional weapons carried by his guards.

So, the gun manufacturers are "hypocrites" who "say one thing and do another."

The Vatican Bank is a major shareholder in Beretta.

The Pope also called for a "dialogue with all people" about climate change. But "all people" does not include skeptics who question the PC party line about global warming.

And His Holiness condemned disparity of wealth, and called for divestiture by "the wealthy." But the Vatican's holdings and art treasures are worth a fortune, and the Pope has shown no interest in selling them off and using the proceeds to help the poor.
