Pope Francis: Life Imprisonment ‘Not The Answer’ Even For Most Dangerous Criminals

Fact checked
Far-left Pope Francis has claimed that life imprisonment is "not the solution" because it deprives criminals of "hope" and “prospects of reconciliation and reintegration.”

Far-left Pope Francis has claimed that life imprisonment is “not the solution” because it deprives criminals of “hope” and “prospects of reconciliation and reintegration.”

“Never deprive anyone of the right to start over!” Pope Francis added.

After having officially declared the death penalty “inadmissible” in 2018, far-left Pope Francis has now gone on to extend his condemnation to life imprisonment without parole even for the most dangerous criminals, saying that society has the responsibility to “never suffocate the flame of hope.”

Breitbart report: Reviving the flame of hope “is the duty of all,” Francis said this week in an address to prison staff, chaplains, and inmates. “It is up to every society to feed it, to ensure that punishment does not compromise the right to hope, that prospects of reconciliation and reintegration are guaranteed.”

In a key paragraph, the pontiff expressed his view that a life sentence is a problem rather than a solution.

“While remedying the mistakes of the past, we cannot erase hope in the future,” he said. “Life imprisonment is not the solution to problems, but a problem to be solved. Because if hope is locked up, there is no future for society.”

“Never deprive anyone of the right to start over!” he added.

In the past, Catholic theologians would often defend the legitimacy of severe punishments including the death penalty by arguing that while they may deprive criminals of hope in this life, they can encourage hope for eternal salvation, which is the proper aim of hope.

According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church: “Hope is the theological virtue by which we desire the kingdom of heaven and eternal life as our happiness, placing our trust in Christ’s promises and relying not on our own strength, but on the help of the grace of the Holy Spirit.”

In his address last Saturday, Pope Francis said that all people, including the most villainous, also have the right to hope for full rehabilitation in this life.

Those who work with prisoners “are witnesses of this right: the right to hope, the right to start anew,” he said.

    • The Devil does not want his best assets to die yet, they have too much to do yet.
      I say we let them do it in Hell and Make Earth Great Again.

    • Very true, the devils party is democrat and republican…….Hegelian dialectic……create 2 extremes that lead to a synthesis of what the illuminati wanted in the first place

    • He has more Sadist cult members than Pedowood. Why empower him with the most successful lying prostitutes money can buy?
      I am talking about Pedowood A listers who are hero worshiped into a powerbase through millions of useful idiots who prove the human fallacy of Money see, Monkey do.

  1. Executing Vatican opposition is how Satan’s church gained power and has kept it this long.
    It is time the Vatican is exposed and punished before God and mortal man.
    These evil snakes need to be publicly humiliated BEFORE the perp walk to the gallows.
    This is the only way humanity can begin healing. Closure will take many generation if at all.

    If they live then they will become weaponized even behind bars. Call them Witches and Warlocks if that is our will, but drowning or then burning them is bad for optics. We must force the convicted to read court authorized victim statements before the public execution. If the condemned fail to cooperate or their tone is arrogant (which will be the norm for these snakes) the victim witnesses and the few lucky lottery winners (VIP seating) can stone them to death before they get a chance to be reunited with Moloch.

    All victims will need to have a written impact statement transcribed into every language spoken on Earth. The goal is to not rewrite history like the established publishers did for the Witch trials. The same historical records that removed ALL mention of Child Sex Slaves and the sacrifices Moloch’s perversion and evil demanded. If they refuse to read the impact statements then the victims have the right to read or choose a reader for historical record while the condemned are pelted with rotten vegetables or stones if they wish. But ONLY the victims who survived humanities greatest crimes and the occational lottery winner. Let any deviate from the readings if they wish and both versions will be transcribed. Records must be kept to help our future children after we are long dead.

    This alone will keep humanity from repeating the same mistakes for hundreds of generation. These executions are not for our squandered generation. These executions will be for our grand children’s children to lean from our mistakes.
    Time to stop repeating historical evil so humanity can evolve or die trying.

    • Check out “The Two Babylons, the papal worship proved to be the worship of Nimrod and his Wife” by Alexander Hislop……………………….amazing book if interested. I agree with much of what you said, but its gods job to be the judge, the only reason we live amongst these barbarians is because of our own sin. Jesus would remove them immediately if we quit rebelling against him. By killing them, we just bring more sin and demons among ourselves
